(Scroll down for video) The popular teen singing sensation, Justin Bieber, collapsed while singing at a performance in England, according to video uploaded to the internet.
The Canadian teen pop star collapsed on stage from shortness of breath during a performance in London on Thursday, the singer’s representatives said.
“Justin is heading to the doctor now,” Bieber spokesperson, Melissa Victor, said. “He passed out and took a break of 20 minutes and was given oxygen,” she added.
Bieber, 19, returned to the stage after the break to end the show and his representatives said that he was fine.
“Justin suffered from shortness of breath. He has been complaining during the entire show,” Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, told the public in several amateur videos posted online. “Justin is backstage with the EMTs and a doctor,” the manager added.
The Bieber spokesperson told the press that the singer decided to ignore the doctor’s order and returned to the stage in order to complete the show.
The Canadian singer had been suffering from health problems before the show, she said.
Bieber was performing for the third out of four nights at the O2 Arena in London, as part of the European leg of his sold-out world tour.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
