Justin Bieber, 19, was hospitalized tonight, Thursday, March 7, after he collapsed on stage at London’s O2 arena. Before the incident the singer was complaining of breathing problems throughout the performance.
His rep told E!:
“He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on the way to the hospital right now.”
Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, took the stage to explain to the crowd what was going on, saying:
“Justin got very light of breath. The whole show he’s been complaining, and he’s backstage with the EMTs and the doctor. They’re telling him that they want him to go see somebody and see what’s going on with his lungs.”
Bieber returned to the stage, continued the performance, and was then taken to the hospital.
