Justin Bieber was ‘attacked’ by a crazy fan on stage during a concert in Dubai before security guards pushed the intruder out of the scene, according to reports.
As The Telegraph reports, the teen idol was playing the piano when an unknown man jumped onto the stage and grabbed him from behind.
During the melee the ‘Boyfriend’ singer managed to free himself and run to the side of the stage while security guards tried to tackle the man to the ground.
During the brief attack the anxious fan tipped the piano over before he was eventually caught by security guards.
Later someone had posted a video to Twitter, writing: “Whoa. Crazy fan tackled @justinbieber and knocked the piano down the stage. Mayhem.”
While Bieber was shaken, he luckily got no injuries, and the band finished the song while the angered fan was removed from the stage.
However, this was not the only casualty for the famous teen. His fans were anxious as the pop star kept them waiting for two hours in humid 86F (30C) heat.
When he finally arrived at the at 10pm on Saturday he performed only one song before disappearing for a break. However, when he returned he noticed that many of the 15,000-strong audience, who had paid up to £175 for tickets, were leaving as Sunday is a school day in the United Arab Emirates.
Some of Bieber fans even had travelled miles to get there as the concert venue is in the middle of the desert on the outskirts of Dubai, reports The Daily Mail.
Parents and fans took to social networking sites to voice their anger. One mother said: “What a toerag.”
Another mother-of-two, Eileen Wallis, said: “You really can’t keep thousands – including a significant percentage of kids – waiting for two hours on a school night. Not cool.”
She went on, adding: “He is a polished performer but after 30 years of concert-going, this is the first time an artist leaves the stage after just one song.”
Chris Birks tweeted: “It’s a school night here Justin, have some respect…your fans have been waiting over four hours.”
The 19-year-old pop star has been making headlines throughout the European part of his “Believe” tour. Last month the performer was criticised for suggesting Anne Frank would have been a fan of his.
The comment stirred up a lot of conversation on social media, with people calling Bieber “a little idiot” who is “way too full of himself.”
Bieber has yet to respond to the incident. During his tour of the Netherlands so far, he’s complained about his bowels and taken a moment to let his followers know he’s “resting up.”
Anne Frank’s diary is a moving account of her two years in hiding from the Nazis with her family in a secret annexe that is today a popular museum in central Amsterdam.
She died in 1945 aged 15 at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany.
However, he appeared to be much more sensitive during his performances in the Middle East, pausing his concerts so that fans can pray and leaving out songs that could offend Muslims.
