JUSTIN BIEBERI CANCELED MY TOUR BECAUSE OF CHRIST
Justin Bieber Canceled His Tour Because of Christ
Justin Bieber pulled the plug on his Purpose tour because he “rededicated his life to Christ” … sources connected to Hillsong Church tell TMZ.
Bieber’s decision seemed to come out of the blue, but our sources say it was squarely based on what Bieber believes is religious enlightenment. Bieber said he canceled due to exhaustion, but that’s simply not true. Plus, his remaining touring schedule was not taxing travel-wise.
We’re also told Bieber’s crew is “incredibly pissed off at him” because it has impacted their financial well-being without any warning.
Bieber has been virtually joined at the hip with Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz over the last few months — including at a huge church event in Australia — but we’re told Lentz did not advocate for cancelling the tour.
JUSTIN BIEBER‘SPIRITUAL AWAKENING’Puts Music Career In Jeopardy
Justin Bieber’s ‘Spiritual Awakening’ with Hillsong Church and Carl Lentz Puts Music Career in Jeopardy
Justin Bieber‘s “purpose” in life does not seem to be music anymore — it’s all about his “spiritual awakening” courtesy of the Hillsong Church and its leader, in particular … sources connected with the church tell TMZ.
Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell us, Justin’s decision to abruptly cancel his Purpose Tour is rooted in his relationship with church pastor Carl Lentz. As we reported, we’re told Lentz did not advocate canceling the tour. In fact we’re told he recommended the opposite.
That said, our sources say Bieber’s relationship with Lentz has been “intense” and the church leader has increasingly influenced the singer in making life decisions.
As one source put it, “The church didn’t tell Justin to cancel the tour. He made his decision based on spiritual soul-searching and his own view of the path in life he should be taking.”
The way it was put to us, Bieber processed the endless conversations he has had with Lentz and used them to make the decision. It’s unclear whether canceling the tour is a one-off or whether Bieber is so down the road with the church that he will close the book on his music career.
Justin and Carl had were spotted having a casual chat Tuesday afternoon behind Mastro’s in Bev Hills. As one source put it, “he’s becoming the Tom Cruise of that church.”
