Bieber reportedly hurt his knee midway through the show at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center, but continued to perform. Gossip Cop reports that the singer said, “I twisted my knee pretty bad.”
A rep for the singer told E! News, “Justin was seen limping onstage last night, however, he finished his set. We are hoping it’s just a bad sprain.”
A rep for the singer had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment at press time. However, a source told E! that shortly after wrapping up the show, he went straight to his tour bus to rest. The singer’s next concert is scheduled for Saturday at the Norfolk Scope Arena.
This isn’t the first time Bieber has injured himself at a show. Last fall, almost a year to the day, the singer injured and broke his foot during a show in London, where he was opening for fellow superstar Taylor Swift at Wembley Arena.
He tweeted about the injury at the time, saying, “In the last song, ‘One Time,’ I tripped over something onstage coming down the ramp and felt my ankle roll in a very bad way. Turns out I fractured my foot and had to finish the song on a broken foot.”
Bieber has not tweeted about his most recent injury.
In better news, Bieber’s new track, “Pray,” hit the Internet on Friday (November 12). The song will be the only new track featured on his latest release, My Worlds Acoustic, out on November 26.
