Bieber manager Scooter Braun took the stage to tell the crowd, “Justin's got very light breath. The whole show he’s been complaining. He’s backstage with the EMTs and the doctor,” according to TMZ.

The singer then returned to finish the rest of his set, and received big applause from the crowd. Afterward he headed to an area hospital for treatment.

It's not the first snag he's faced since landing in London. On Monday, Bieber angered fans by starting a concert in the city two hours late. He later apologized, blaming the delay on technical issues.
