Justin Bieber Bails On Bar Tab, Starts Off ‘Purpose World Tour’ With A Bang In Seattle
It seems as though Justin Bieber has gotten off to a rocky start to his tour after enjoying some smooth and pricey Whisky. The Biebs showed up for a few drinks with friends at a Seattle Whisky Bar and ordered a round of the tempting liquor, but ditched on the tab.
The drink and ditch actions by the singer and his entourage were apparently the result of a tense situation that escalated and required the Biebs and his crew to leave speedily.
TMZ shares the details that seem to implicate the “Love Yourself” singer.
“[Bieber] bailed on a $130 bar tab after a heated exchange that nearly turned into a bar brawl. Sunday night he and 7 pals hit up The Whisky Bar and ordered a round of shots. Sources at the bar tell us they asked for a mid-range blend and got GlenDronach… a 12-year-old single malt scotch, $15 per shot. We’re told the group went out for a smoke and never came back to pay the bill, but they were all caught on surveillance cams.”
A member of Justin’s entourage shares that the situation escalated when a young girl approached Bieber asking for a picture with the star. A dance that Justin denied the girl, which didn’t go over well with a male friend of the female requesting the photo. As TMZ relays, “[t]hat’s when a guy with her got pissed, and started yelling and making a scene. We’re told Justin’s group decided it was best to get outta Dodge before a fight started.”
An additional source shares that a bodyguard for the superstar was supposed to pay the tab, yet forgot in the heat of the moment with the tense situation resulting.
Seattle is the first stop on Bieber’s highly-anticipated tour. Although Justin has been known for making the wrong decisions that have negatively impacted how the singer is perceived, this is not the best way to attempt to win naysayers over and getting his reputation back on track. Maybe it’s just the way the Biebs likes it. Regardless of public perception, the star has been on fire lately due to putting out some fantastic tracks of late.
It’s being reported by fans and attendees of Bieber’s first show for his Purpose World Tour that the star did not disappoint and pleased the audience during his Tuesday show in Seattle. The Daily Mail also relays that Justin got a little bit “cheeky” by getting handsy with one of his dancers during the performance.
“The 22-year-old performed at the KeyArena in Seattle, and before getting drenched by a rain machine and whipping his shirt off, he got very hands on with a female dancer. The flame-haired dancer – dressed in black underwear with a sheer bodysuit over the top – was seen grinding up against Justin.”
Biebs apparently showed off his strength by lifting the dancer up and swaying her around, even holding her upside down at a point in the performance. A rain machine then drenched the performer leaving his hair soaked as well as his clothing. What’s a Bieb to do? Take it off, of course. The singer proceeded to remove his shirt to the cheers of his audience. As the publication shares, Justin is no stranger to pleasing his crowds and is on track to completing one successful tour to his millions of fans.
“Already a veteran of packing the crowds into huge stadiums, Justin looked to be in high spirits as he ploughed through a set full of hits and – of course – slick dance moves.”
Hopefully Justin keeps his wild behavior in check for the remainder of the Purpose World Tour, but who knows what the star might get up to.
