Justin Bieber and crew fail to pay bar tab

Justin Bieber dodged paying a bar bill after an argument broke out between his entourage and a fan.

The star, who kicked off his World tour in Seattle this week, reportedly failed to settle the $130 tab for eight shots of 12-year-old Glendronach Scotch last Sunday (06Mar16).


According to TMZ.com, Justin and his entourage headed to The Whisky Bar for drinks, but were forced to bail on the bill after a fight broke out between one of Justin's dancers and a female fan.


The girl was allegedly refused permission to have her picture taken with the Sorry star by one of his backing dancers.


A source said that the girl's boyfriend lashed out at Bieber's gang and "started yelling and making a scene."


The group headed outside for a cigarette during the heated exchange and a decision was made to leave before a fight broke out.


The bill was supposed to have been paid by the star's bodyguard, but was apparently "forgotten" amid the chaos.


It was eventually settled in full on Wednesday night (09Mar16).


That same day the Canadian singer opened the first night of his Purpose tour with smash hits, Mark My Words, I'll Show You, and What Do You Mean.


The teen idol went through several costume changes throughout the heavily choreographed set at the city's KeyArena. At one point he ripped off a grey vest to bare his torso to excited fans, who were then treated to a rain soaked performance onstage.


Justin, 22, has been keen to avoid controversy in recent years after it was speculated he had gone off-the-rails in 2014, following an arrest for driving under the influence and drag racing in a residential area of Miami Beach.


His tour will keep him on the road until July 19 (16), before heading to Europe and the U.K., finishing up with a penultimate performance at London's O2 Arena (29Nov16).
