Oh my god! Justin Bieber shocked everyone when he cancelled all of his future meet and greets on Mar. 22, but now a source is saying that it was the result of several scary run-ins. We have all the crazy details, right here.
Fans may be heartbroken that Justin Bieber, 22, cancelled or changed every last meet and greet for the rest of his tour, but his reason why is totally shocking and scary. A source explains that fans were getting out of hand and on multiple occasions, Justin got hurt. Here’s what went down that was the final straw.
On Mar. 21 in Los Angeles, a fan that was on Justin’s security team’s “watch list” got way to close for comfort, a source told TMZ. The fan, who is totally obsessed and potentially dangerous, got within ten feet of Justin without him knowing, and it sent his security team into a frenzy. While no harm was done, this was the straw that broke the camel’s back for Justin, leading him to say “no more” to fan meet and greets.
An overwhelming and still growing amount of fans were paying big bucks to get close to Justin before and after his concerts, with around 20 purchasing one-on-one experiences and nearly 200 more visiting in groups. With such a large amount of fans around, there have been some tense moments.

Love u guys.. I'm going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.. Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression .. The pressure of meeting people's expectations of what I'm supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;)

In cases, TMZ reports that Justin got his hair pulled, his clothing torn off, and even got the flu once from a fan. They report that Justin never complained, but security insists that he change things. So from now on, Justin will only greet groups on a stage with no touching or one-on-one interaction. Bummer!
Justin’s fans have already begun getting emails offering them refunds for the $900-$1200 experiences they will no longer receive. Justin definitely feels bad, but can’t risk his health to please his fans, saying “I want to make people smile, but not at my expense, and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.”
