Justin Bieber has left his hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the request of its management, after noise and property damage caused by screaming fans outside disturbed other guests.
The 19-year-old is on the South American leg of his Believe world tour, arriving at the five-star La Faena hotel in the elite Puerto Madero district of Beunos Aires on Thursday for a series of shows.
In a statement, the hotel said: “All that Justin Bieber brings with him was inhibiting our ability to provide the services that our guests have become accustomed to.”
As previously reported, fans broke through wooden barricades erected around the hotel to control crowds on Thursday and have been camped outside the hotel chanting their idol’s name, stopping traffic, fighting, and destroying property ever since.
On Thursday, a picture surfaced online of the Canadian star talking to a police officer in a patrol car outside the hotel. It’s thought the pair may have discussed the fan presence.
Bieber has now relocated to a house in a gated community in NorDelta, a district to the North of Buenos Aires in Tigre, Britain’s Mirror reports.
The “Beauty And A Beat” star performed last night in Córdoba and will perform two concerts at the 67,664 capacity River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires tonight and tomorrow. Carly Rae-Jepsen and Cody Simpson are support acts.

Pandemonium in Argentina “)

Justin’s Argentina stint follows a drama-free concert in Paraguay and an incendiary six day visit to Brazil before that.
While in Brazil, the pop prince was snapped tagging graffiti on a wall of the disused Hotel Nacional in Rio de Janeiro with friends, while accompanied by his security team.
Following a complaint and a three day investigation, Bieber was slapped with a vandalism charge on Friday, Nov. 8.
The case has been forwarded to the Special criminal court which handles minor offences and will determine the size of the fine if the singer is convicted. Jail is not on the table.
According to reports, the “Boyfriend” star was granted a license to paint a wall in Rio’s Vila Olimpica do Vidigal district, but after a Monday visit to the site chose to tag in another locale when they returned the next day.
E! News previously reported Bieber and his crew thought the area they were designated was too dangerous, opting to tag the hotel believing it to be abandoned.
Antonio Ricardo, of Rio Civil Police, said yesterday:
“The musician does not have permission from the owner of the site to do the paintings,” the Mirror writes, adding that officers went to the singer’s rented mansion to question him but an entourage member went to the station instead.
Bieber’s tags have since been painted over. The charge follows myriad headline-making incidents involving Bieber and his crew in Brazil, including being spotted leaving a high-end brothel, claims by paparazzi of an attack by the singer’s security, concert dramas, and a video being made of him while sleeping which was filmed by a Brazilian escort girl-bodybuilder without his consent.
The video has since gone viral racking up over 33 million views and counting.
Argentinian paper La Razón reported Justin was spotted clubbing at Buenos Airies’ Jet club Friday and reportedly returned “in a minivan replete with women.”
However, eyewitness reports suggest the number of females that returned with Bieber was a more conservative two.
The singer’s family, mother Pattie Mallette, father Jeremy, and step-siblings Jaxon, 3, and Jazmyn, 5, are currently traveling on the tour.
Fans in Argentina losing the plot.
