Bieber suffers food poisoning

Justin Bieber is sick with food poisoning.

The 19-year-old has been trekking through South America for the latest leg of his Believe world tour and revealed before taking the stage in Buenos Aires Sunday night he was still “pulling it together”.

“This sucks. #sick food poisoning,” he tweeted, adding shortly after, “Not feeling so good. Actually pretty sick. Pulling it together. Argentina we got a show to do. Love u.”

The pop star did take a minute to thank his fans overseas after it was revealed he won the Best Male award at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam.

“Sitting here with food poisoning and heard we won #bestmale at the #EMAs. Thanks everyone,” he wrote, keeping his followers updated.

“Argentina been a rough day but the show must go on. I’m coming,” Justin added.

The star’s shows in the country come after a controversial trip to Brazil.

Rumors surged last week he had spent an evening at a brothel in Rio de Janeiro, although a source told GossipCop Justin was simply leaving a “members’ only club” in the city.

He was later caught out when a female fan posted on YouTube footage of the star sleeping, reportedly taken when an afterparty began to wind down.

Titled ‘Justin Bieber sleeping with a girl in Brasil’, the clip shows the heartthrob snoozing in a blanket before the brunette turns the camera on herself (sic).

Justin also had a run-in with police during his trip.

Local authorities have charged him for spraying illegal graffiti on the side of the Hotel Nacional. His case has reportedly been sent to JECrim, the Special criminal court for minor offenses.

The singer faces a fine if found guilty.
