America, Justin Bieber is back. The singer was released after being detained for nearly four hours by U.S. Customs at Los Angeles International Airport. According to People magazine, he was being held for “routine secondary questioning,” but “was not kept out of the United States.” As Justin exited the airport, he was smiling, however had nothing to say to the crowd of paparazzi waiting for him outside. Later, he tweeted, “All smiles,” along with a picture of himself outside the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Justin was on his way home from his trip to Asia, which had its own bumps.
He has a string of legal troubles, both in the U.S. and Canada. Justin is scheduled to go on trial in Miami in July for driving under influence and resisting arrest charges. In Los Angeles, prosecutors are considering whether to file a felony vandalism case against him for throwing eggs at his neighbor’s house. And in Toronto, a misdemeanor assault case is awaiting trial. The airport incident happened a week after the White House responded to a petition that asked the U.S. government to deport the Canadian pop singer. “Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one,” said the official White House statement. ~Alexandra Sharova
