After hospital stay, Bieber lashes out at UK photographer

Justin Bieber’s week just got worse.

Following a brief hospital stay after fainting backstage, the 19-year-old pop star’s preparation for a final concert in London on Friday hit a speed bump.

Bieber got into an altercation with insult-hurling paparazzi, lashing out at a photographer with a stream of expletives as he was restrained by minders.

The singer quickly took to Twitter to address the incident, which was captured by Channel 5 news and pledged to channel his “adrenaline” into his Friday show.

The scuffle came just hours after Bieber said he was “getting better” after struggling to breathe during the previous night’s concert at the O2 arena and pledged the show would go on as planned.

A spokesman for the O2 Arena said Bieber was treated backstage during Thursday’s concert after becoming short of breath but recovered and finished his set.

The incident caps a difficult week for Bieber. He was forced to apologize to outraged fans who accused him of taking the stage almost two hours late for his first concert at the O2 on Monday. He insisted he was only 40 minutes late and blamed “technical issues.” He took to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the media’s portrayal of the incident.
