Justin Bieber wasn’t happy with some of his fans who camped outside of his house.
The “Intentions” singer took to Instagram Story Wednesday to call out the “disrespectful” people who continue to invade his privacy and take photos of him entering and leaving his home.
“How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment,” Bieber said only a few hours after winning a Billboard Music Award for his song “10,000 Hours” with Dan + Shay.
“This is not a hotel. It’s my home,” he added.
This wasn’t the first time Bieber had encountered loiterers outside of his property, and some fans have even gone as far as attempting to break into his property and cause him harm.
In 2017, an avid fan went to the pop star’s Beverly Hills mansion where she was detained by Bieber’s security. Although the singer was at his home at the time, he didn’t have any interactions with the woman, who was in her 40s.
In 2012, a nephew and his uncle planned to kill and castrate Bieber using garden shears on the orders of New Mexico inmate Dana Martin, who was said to be obsessed with the Canadian crooner and has a tattoo of him on his leg, The Atlantic reported. The mastermind is serving two life sentences for a 2000 rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in Vermont.
Apart from hinting that he would sleep with “good-looking” and “legal” Bieber, Martin defended his move to kill the hitmaker in a 2013 interview, explaining that the singer “changed,” which “made me angry.”
Both Bieber and wife Hailey Baldwin value privacy. This was also the reason the model refused to kiss her now-husband in public when they started dating.
In an interview with Vogue Italia, Baldwin said that she couldn’t do it because there would always be people watching.
“For a long time I couldn’t do it: I didn’t kiss him in public, I didn’t like the idea of people watching us at certain moments. … But I realized that it is a battle that in the long run, instead of protecting you, exhausts you. The fact is, we love each other. And there is really nothing to hide,” Baldwin said.
Bieber and Baldwin just celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary in September. Though they wed at a New York City courthouse in 2018, they had a big ceremony in South Carolina last year.
