The dramas in London continue for Justin Bieber this week, with the pop star reportedly collapsing on stage during a performance at the O2 Arena.
Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, hopped on stage to tell fans that the singer "got very light of breath" and was taken backstage to be treated by a medical team, inclduing a doctor.
"They're telling him that they want him to go see somebody and see what's going on in his lungs," Braun said.
Instead, Bieber said he wanted to finish the show.
Braun asked the star's fans for patience: "He might not be jumping around as much and everything else.
"We're not trying to be disrespectful, we're not trying to have you guys get home late."
He said they were "truly trying" to put on a show for Bieber's fans.
"Just bear with us. It's a tough gig," Braun said.
"We're going to do the best job to finish the show as best we can."
The medical emergency follows a series of dramas for Bieber during his visit to London.
He tweeted recently: "Since I have been here [in London] it hasn't been easy with the press at times but I have loved it."
He was forced to apologise for disappointing thousands of young fans after "technical issues" delayed his concert by two hours on Monday night.
He also defended himself after being accused of taking underage Jaden Smith and Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke to a nightclub for his 19th birthday.
That same night, Bieber vented his frustrations on Twitter with a cryptic message: "Worst birthday."
Bieber has since been reprimanded by his record company over his behaviour in London.
He was subjected to a 20-minute Skype chat with his US label bosses following his performance at the O2 Arena on Monday.
The teen star was warned to curb his partying ways and "stay in more".
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Being amidst a barrage of abuse is uncharted territory for Justin.
"Understandably he is finding it hard to take.
"His erratic behaviour and antics are not what his young fans expect of him.
"After an emergency meeting in the US, Justin's people had him on Skype to bosses and he was given a serious talking-to.
"It was suggested he start staying in more and basically cleaning up his act.
"Justin took the news well and has promised to go back to putting his fans first."
After the talks, Braun advised the young pop star to stay "focused".
He tweeted:"@justinbieber really good talk. #focused (sic)."
However, the star later took to his own account on the social networking website to slam his critics and warn his behaviour can only be judged by God.
He wrote: "Rumors rumors and more rumors. nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down (sic)."
"im focused on the good things in life. im blessed and not forgetting it. im giving back every day for it. cant phase me.
"fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth.
"as long as my family, friends, and fans r with me u can say whatever. we are all equal in God's eyes & we have a responsibility to each other.
"i understand it is part of the job to be judged ... but judge me on the facts, judge me on the music, and be careful of the judgement u pass but know this ... im only judged by one power, and i serve him.
"so yeah I will continue being me. i will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing ... and u are welcome to join, because i carry no hate. We got to much love for that. Im about the music."Gonna enjoy the day and keep smiling. so should all of u. Much love. i see u #beliebers = i love u."
