Justin Bieber has never been out of trouble – this time, he was sued by a Canadian business for pulling out his appearance at a Montreal club last year.
Team Production, a Montreal promotional company, sued the 22-year-old singer for $650K in damages. The production company claimed that they had a deal with Bieber to do an appearance at Beach Club in Montreal last August, where he was expected to meet fans and perform a few songs, TMZ reported.
But things fall out between the two parties when Team Production felt the “I am Sorry” singer was not promoting the event enough on social media.
Bieber promoting the event was reportedly part of the deal and after negotiations broke down, the singer tweeted on the morning of his scheduled appearance that he would not perform in Beach Club.
His message read: “Montreal due to the promoter of today’s event breaking his contract and lying I will not be able to attend today’s event. I’m sorry.” He tweeted further and said: “I look forward to coming back to Montreal in the future to do a proper show but I will not be able to attend 2day due to this breach. Thanks.”
Team Productions claimed the tweet branded the business a liar and it resulted in losses acquired by their business.
The “Love Yourself” star tweeted: “Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but the Argentinian government won’t allow it. So sorry.”
He further tweeted:
The Argentina’s ban on Bieber stemmed from an incident in 2013. The singer caused such outrage after a video emerged showing him while he swipes the Argentinian national flag off stage with his foot during mid-concert.
The “Baby” hitmaker was forced to issue an apology at the time. “I’m sorry if that was taken the wrong way and I’m sorry for my mistake. I hope you can accept this … and I loved my time there performing for you and look forward to coming back,” he wrote on Twitter.
However, the relationship between Bieber and Argentina did not improve. Justin Bieber seems to not have learned his lessons. Earlier this month, he appeared to have dropped himself in it again after he was filmed ‘tossing aside’ the national flag for the second time, Mirror wrote.
In 2015, an Argentinian judge has issued an arrest warrant for him related to an alleged assault of a photographer. The arrest warrant was revoked but according to the Guardian, the charges were not dismissed. Readers can also remember that the singer has recently displayed some craziness in Boston.
According to TMZ, Bieber is working to bring his “Purpose” tour to South America, Japan and Australia.
