Justin Bieber has made it known that he has been angry and disappointed with his fans recently, but no one expected him to punch one fan in the face. But, according to the Daily Mail, that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday when a fan put his hand inside the singer’s car window.

Kevin Ramirez, an 18-year-old Justin Bieber fan, was left with a bloodied lip after he was punched by his idol in the face after reaching through the open window of the “Sorry” singer’s slow-moving car in Barcelona this week.
While the now-former Bieber fan says that the matter is now in the hands of his lawyers, fellow performer Rita Ora has stepped up to defend Justin Bieber, saying that she knows how scary it can be when fans cross the line.
“I feel like anyone who had a hand in their face is going to protect themselves.”

The matter comes as just one incident in a series of recent events which show Justin Bieber lashing out at fans. The popular singer walked off stage mid-performance in Manchester, according to Billboard. After repeatedly warning his fans to stop screaming, the 22-year-old “Sorry” singer dropped his mic and walked off stage.

This wasn’t the first time that Justin Bieber asked his fans to stop screaming in the pauses between songs. The “Baby” singer has struggled with the annoying noise from Beliebers during the U.K. leg of the Purpose tour.
But Justin Bieber just couldn’t put up with the screaming anymore during the last of three tour dates at Manchester’s Arena, so he dropped his mic and left the stage mid-performance.

The Canadian pop star later posted a tweet (which he then deleted) about the incident, denying that he was angry with his fans and stating that his simply wanted them to “listen,” according to NME.
“All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit.”
Justin Bieber is already being slammed by furious parents of disappointed young fans, who say they had spent a “fortune” for their children to see the pop star perform in Manchester.
During his performance in Manchester, Justin Bieber begged his fans to turn the screaming down a notch in the pause between songs.
“But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you. I don’t think it’s necessary when I’m trying to say something and you guys are screaming.”
But his fans didn’t listen and continued to squeal annoyingly. So Justin Bieber made a loud and clear message: he dropped the mic and walked off stage. His fans started booing as he walked off, but the singer didn’t come back to finish his show.
One week earlier, Justin Bieber asked his fans to “take a chill pill” during his performance in Birmingham, adding that “the screaming is just so obnoxious.” But Beliebers didn’t listen.
Then during his performance in Manchester, Justin Bieber once again addressed his fans and asked them to quiet down.
“I don’t mind cutting the bullsh*t because I don’t need to talk. I’m just trying to engage, but if you guys don’t want to do that, we can just play the music.”
It was apparently the last warning from Justin Bieber, as during his next concert, the following Sunday, the singer showed his fans that he wasn’t joking.
It sure looks like Justin Bieber has been frustrated with his fans lately. In May, the “What Do You Mean?” singer announced he wouldn’t be taking pictures with fans anymore. Bieber took to Instagram to warn his fans never to approach him asking to take a photo.
“It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human. I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity.”
Then in late summer Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram account after warning fans not to insult his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie for her appearance. But now the Canadian singer has problems not only with his fans but also their parents, according to the Daily Mail.
Parents of disappointed Beliebers, who were present at the show in Manchester, are now calling Justin Bieber a “spoilt brat” for not finishing his show and walking off stage. Parents claim that they had spent a “fortune” to get tickets for their kids.
The price of tickets for Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour dates ranges between $100 and $670 per person. But that’s only half of the problem for parents of Beliebers, as they also spend plenty of money on the merchandise on sale at Bieber’s concerts. For example, a hoodie with the word “staff” written on it costs $115.
