It looks like there may be more to the story here.
Justin Bieber's longtime manager, Scooter Braun, appeared on CBS This Morning on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017. During the interview, he discussed the 23-year-old's decision to suddenly call off the final leg of his Purpose World Tour earlier this year.
"Look, I think he'll decide to tell people when he's ready of what exactly happened," Braun began. "But I think he was making a decision, like he said, to protect himself" (via Entertainment Tonight). "But he's 23 years old now, and if he makes a decision as a man, as long as he's willing to listen to opinions and hear people out — if he has true conviction, I'm willing to have his back."
As Nicki Swift previously reported, the Biebs shocked fans when he canceled the last 14 shows of his international tour in July 2017. A source told TMZ at the time that the Canadian musician was "just over it," while another insider revealed to ET that he was simply "exhausted."
After Braun, 36, apologized to fans for the abrupt change of schedule, the "What Do You Mean?" singer finally broke his silence in August, taking to Instagram to post a lengthy note. "I'm so grateful for this journey with all of you," he wrote to his adoring fans. "I want you all to know this tour has been unbelievable and has taught me so much about myself. I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a voice in this world. I've learned the more you appreciate your calling the more you want to protect your calling. Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE."
As the "Friends" singer went on, "I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be."
While we wait to hear what exactly happened on tour from the pop star himself, read up on what's really going on with Justin Bieber.
