Justin Bieber detained by US customs but sadly freed hours later
The Canadian singer is held briefly at LA airport
In what is another unsurprisingly piece of news from the Justin Bieber camp, the star was reportedly held by customs after he flew into LA International Airport yesterday.
Sadly for many, he was let loose four hours later and emerged smiling as he exited the airport – free once again to find a new group of people to irritate. It isn’t known what he was detained for.
Perhaps the only people saddened by the 20-year-old’s brief incarceration were his loyal fans, who stoically waited outside the airport to catch a glimpse of their hero.
“Oh...my...God, I will actually die if I don't see him,” lamented one distressed fan.
The singer had flown in from Tokyo, where he managed to offend Chinese and South Korean fans by controversially posting a photograph of himself at Yasukuni shrine – which honours war criminals. He apologised claiming that he didn’t know what it was. Political history isn’t his forte.
This isn’t the first time the star has been detained by customs on the way back in the US. Maybe, he just isn't welcome anymore. In February, he was briefly held after arriving in America from Canada, after it was thought he may have cannabis on board his private jet. The search proved fruitless, and the party was allowed to proceed.
