Has Justin Bieber‘s meltdown officially begun? Recently, the teen pop star has been in headlines for his “worst birthday ever,” starting his concert hours late, and flaunting some seriously questionable outfits… and the kicker occurred Thursday when Bieber collapsed onstage during a show in London and was rushed to the hospital.
According to eyewitnesses who took to Twitter immediately after Bieber left the stage, he experienced breathing troubles during his show at London’s O2 arena and passed out. “He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on the way to the hospital right now,” his rep told E! News.
“Justin got very light of breath. The whole show he’s been complaining, and he’s backstage with the EMTs and the doctor,” Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, told the crowd. “They’re telling him that they want him to go see somebody and see what’s going on with his lungs.” Bieber returned to the stage about 10 minutes later and finished the show, despite a doctor’s recommendation that he end it early, and was rushed to the hospital after it ended.
Of course, he took to Twitter almost immediately, tweeting out to his Beliebers, “getting better. thanks for everyone pulling me thru tonight. best fans in the world. figuring out what happened. thanks for the love.”
