Music star, Justin Bieber, has denied widespread reports that he cancelled his tour in order to reconnect with his Christian faith. The reports also claimed that Bieber was possibly going to start his own Church but the singer has dismissed the reports.
He was asked by gossip site, TMZ if he truly cancelled the concerts due to ‘religious reasons’ and the 23-year-old said, “No, you already know the reason.”
The reports that Bieber was possibly starting a Church emanated from Australia’s Channel Nine entertainment guru Richard Wilkins, following the singer’s announcement on his website that he would not be finishing the remainder of his scheduled stadium shows.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Justin Bieber will cancel the remainder of the Purpose World Tour concerts. Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them, the statement read in part.
Justin Bieber has become very close with Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz in the last few months.
