Justin Bieber has confronted a group of fans who were gathered outside his home. Watch the exchange below:
The singer returned home recently to find a crowd standing by his front door, waiting for him to return and sign autographs and pose for pictures.
And in a video shared by TikTok user @vanessafex, a visibly annoyed but Bieber can be seen talking to one of the girls at the front, who asks him for a hug.
Telling her that he 'heard her', the 26-year-old said he 'didn't appreciate' them following him home.
He said: "I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, I hear you, I hear you. This is my home, do you know what I mean? This is where I live.
"And I don't appreciate you guys being here. You guys can be anywhere but not my home, this is where I... you know at the end of the night, when you come home and you want to relax? This is my space to do that.
"So I would appreciate if you guys could let me do that."
But still chancing her arm, one of the fans then asks again if she can have a hug from the popstar.
Understandably, however, after what he's just said, Bieber declines the invitation and walks into his building.
Since the footage was shared on social media, it has been viewed over 12 million times, with thousands of people commenting in support of the singer.
One user said: "If I were him, I'd do that too, and he was very polite. I respect that."
Echoing this, another commented: "He handled that really well."
A third wrote: "Bruh still asks for a hug. They were listening but they weren't listening."
While another chimed in: "He's made a fair point and setting the boundary. I'm not a fan but it's good to see him do that respectfully."
This isn't the first time that Bieber has opened up about he pressure he receives from fans who encroach on his personal space, though.
In October 2020, he called out fans on his Instagram Story for waiting outside his home.
He said: "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.
"This is not a a hotel. It's my home."
