If you remember 2013 you might remember that Justin Bieber was accused of ordering his security to beat up on a paparazzo and then steal his money and camera in Argentina. A lot of nothing happened in that regard. He was called in to testify in Argentinian court but he never showed up. There were numerous attempts to contact Bieber’s people but Justin refuses to cooperate. He is saying that the entire incident is a bunch of nothing and that the judge is blowing things out of proportion and that he is a lone wolf out to get him.
A Bieber source says, “The judge is screwing his own country because Justin could infuse a huge amount of money into the economy.” While that might be true, the fact of the matter is Bieber just isn’t cooperating. Since the actual incident, an arrest warrant was issued for Bieber in 2014 for failing to comply with a court order. His lawyers worked furiously to get the case dropped but the Argentinian court wasn’t having any of that. Though they did manage to get them to rescind the arrest warrant.
Here we are again in 2016 and the Argentinian government has formally indicted Justin of assault and robbery. That doesn’t mean he’s convicted of anything but that does mean he’s a formal suspect. Before, he was just called in so that he could tell his side of things, but now the government flat out holds him responsible unless he can prove otherwise. That also means that as soon as he steps into the country he will be arrested and held possibly in jail until the matter can be sorted out. But it doesn’t seem like Justin will be admitting to anything or even willing to defend himself. Based on his reaction he just seems like he’ll be ignoring the situation.
He reached out to his fans on Twitter, “Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but the Argentinian government won’t allow it. So sorry,” he said, adding, “If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you.” His “Purpose World Tour” will reach its Latin America stretch in February and March. Obviously because of the legal troubles, he will not include Argentina on the tour.
