Pop star Justin Bieber is recovering after fainting during a concert at London's O2 Arena last night NBC News confirms. The singer reportedly passed out backstage after becoming light-headed near the end of his show. He was treated and given Oxygen backstage, then transported to the hospital after finishing his show.
A representative for the 18-year-old told NBC that the singer has now been released from the hospital, and is planning to perform his show tonight. "He fainted and took a 20-minute reprieve," his spokesperson, Melissa Victor, told Reuters.
After Bieber left the stage, his long-time manager Scooter Braun explained the situation to concerned fans. "Justin got very light of breath, the whole show he's been complaining. He's backstage with the EMTs and the doctor," Braun says. "They're telling him that they want him to see somebody and see what's going on with his lungs."
Bieber was eventually able to the stage to finish his show.
