‘You make me sick’: Justin Bieber tells Sabah Helal’s, a 20-year-old Melbourne fan who dared to ask for a photo with the star.
Justin Bieber, who has tried to maintain a low profile for the past few years, insisted the fan was invading his privacy. This incident took place when the 23-year-old pop star made a brief public appearance before a Melbourne show on Friday night. Sabah had been keeping a close eye on Bieber throughout the day. She spotted a gap and thought it was the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the young pop sensation. All she really wanted was a photograph.
As she approached Bieber’s car, Sabah asked the Bieber: ‘Hey Justin, can we have a photo?’ “You’re invading my privacy, I don’t want a photo” Bieber snapped back. ‘I told him that I was going to take the photo anyway!’…Sabah insisted. ‘Look at you, you make me sick.’ Bieber continued. Not the response Sabah was expecting from the Canadian star. ‘It’s too late now to say sorry!’ Frustrated fans claim…
Houda Bennaoui, Sabah’s mother told reporters that her daughter was terribly upset by the response and she described Bieber’s actions and words as ‘disgusting.’ ‘My daughter was bawling her eyes out. She was dying to meet him and then he humiliated her,’ she told reporters. Unimpressed fans that had spent good money to see the star found him less than enthusiastic and expressed their dismay on social media.
They described the star as standing on stage ‘with his hands in his pockets’ and looking ‘miserable’. After watching the concert later that evening, Houda said: ‘His hands were in his pockets for the first five songs and it seemed like he didn’t want to be there. ‘After years of supporting him, my daughter will never see him again in concert.’ This concert was part of the Australian leg of his Purpose World Tour which started in Perth this week.
Many concert goers were highly unimpressed by his apparent disinterest during his performances. Many of them commented that he ‘looked miserable’ and ‘seemed bored’ during his performance. There were a number of fans, possibly now former fans who vented and expressed their disappointment on twitter and other social media.
