Justin Bieber was knocked out cold after running into a wall of glass during a concert in Paris. reported celebrity news website TMZ.com.

The Biebs walked headlong into the wall just before his last number at a private performance in an undisclosed highrise in the city.

“It really hurt, and I felt light-headed, but my adrenaline pushed me through it” to finish the performance, Bieber told TMZ.

He was able to perform his last song before going backstage and passing out for 15 seconds.

French doctors told Bieber that he had suffered a concussion, and should take it easy and keep someone nearby as he recovered, according to Newser.

The singer posted on Twitter that he was doing well, joking about the incident and saying “gotta laugh at yourself sometimes.”

This week seems to be not the best for the Biebs. The singer is under investigation for possible assault in a recent confrontation with a photographer.

The ‘Boyfriend’ singer reportedly became lost his control after being swarmed by paparazzi after he left a movie theatre with girlfriend Selena Gomez at the weekend.

The teen singer reacted in anger, some kind of physical confrontation took place and a photographer was taken to the hospital after complaining of upper torso pain.

After being released from a local hospital, the photographer, whose name wasn’t revealed, later filed a report in which he named Bieber as the suspect in what the police are treating as a misdemeanor battery.

However, the story is not finished yet. As some reports say, police have decided to refer the case to prosecutors and the star could face up to six months in jail.

A witness of the incident told reporters his own point of what happened: the photographer was blocking Bieber’s car; the singer asked him to move; and a scuffle did ensue when the “journalist” refused to do so.

In addition to all this, earlier this week, several fans were injured in a girl-crush at a free Bieber concert in Norway.

Justin Bieber performed a free, six-song concert at the Oslo Opera House on Wednesday that is planned to be featured on his upcoming one-hour NBC television special to be aired next month, writes Reuters.

The free concert in led to reports of dozens of young girls being injured. 49 girls reportedly were injured and 14 taken to hospitals, and police came close to declaring a state of emergency in the capital.

“For the show to happen u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen,” The 18-year-old singer posted to his 22 million Twitter followers on Wednesday.

The singer’s record label, Universal Music, said in a statement on Thursday that it “regrets strongly that some of those who were Justin concert had a bad experience.”

A label executive said “fortunately no one was seriously injured,” and added that Bieber wanted to return to Norway and perform a future concert there.

The incident in Oslo is not the first time Bieber fever has caused crowd control and safety issues. In November 2009, fans stampeded a shopping mall in Long Island, New York ahead of an appearance by the pop star, forcing organizers to cancel the event.
