A prestigious hotel in Paris has denied evicting Justin Bieber from the establishment.
The 19-year-old Canadian singer - who caused controversy recently after he delayed his show by two hours in London and threatened a photographer - was reportedly evicted from the city's Hotel Le Meurice on Monday after just one night because of his "attitude" and "blatant encouragement of fans waiting outside".
French TV presenter Jean-Marc Morandini claimed the singer was asked to leave the hotel and wrote on his blog: "Justin Bieber has just been kicked out of the Meurice Hotel in Paris.
"It was a decision taken by the management of the luxury hotel because of his attitude in the establishment, and because of the nuisance caused by the presence of his fans around the buildings."
Earlier today, Justin praised his French fans for their support and retweeted a message on Twitter: "Big ups to the French Beliebers. Very respectful."
A spokesperson for the singer told the MailOnline that it was Justin's decision to leave the hotel.
"He chose to switch hotels because once he had engaged with some of the fans in front of the hotel, an overwhelming crowd congregated outside.
"The original hotel did not have a separate exit, which created a potential safety issue for everyone."
The Hotel Le Meurice said: "Justin Bieber has indeed left the establishment to go elsewhere, but we do not know where."But this is a decision made by him or his team. We do not turn people away."
