Justin Bieber caught misbehaving in CT

10 May 2013, 16:14

Cape Town - Teen pop star Justin Bieber has reportedly been a handful during his stay at the One&Only hotel in Cape Town, crashing a golf cart while playing bumper cars with his entourage.

eNCA reports that hotel staff confirmed that 19-year-old Bieber, along with his mother Patti Mallette had been staying with them since Tuesday and ordered water cannons and Playstation games to be sent to his suite.

He also requested that the pool area be closed off and accessed exclusively by him and his crew.

A staff member of the One&Only's customer care said: "He (Bieber) and his bodyguards used the carts to play bumper cars in the basement."

The hotel employee, who did not want to be named, added: "He misbehaved a bit on the first night, I think it was the jet lag coming from Dubai".

Corey Gamble, who is Bieber's production A&R coordinator, confirmed the incident to eNCA: "Yeah it happened, I had to pay for it myself (...) It's got his custom scratches on it now."

Dedicated Bieber fans, who call themselves Beliebers, were seen camping outside the hotel at the V&A Waterfront on the off chance they might catch a glimpse of their idol.

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun said that the pop star left Cape Town after performing to a 65 000-strong sold out audience at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday.

Hotel staff confirmed that Bieber was in fact on safari, and would not be returning to Cape Town. Bieber has previously visited South Africa on a safari holiday at the Idube Game Reserve back in September 2010.

Justin Bieber will next take his Believe world tour to Johannesburg's FNB Stadium on Sunday, 12 May for another sold-out performance.
