(ISTANBUL) — Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber reportedly caused a ruckus at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport when he and his entourage blew through passport control without presenting their travel documents.
Team Bieber – around a dozen strong – went straight for the cars idling outside Wednesday night, with airport officials in hot pursuit, according to the Dogan News Agency. Eventually, airport security reportedly agreed to do the security check curbside and allowed the pop star to go on his way.
Fanatical Bieber fans – known as “Beliebers” – were waiting for the pint-sized singer as he stepped off his private plane, but were disappointed when his bodyguards whisked him into the awaiting vehicles.
Bieber, 19, is due to give a concert Thursday night to a sold-out crowd at Istanbul’s Technical University’s sports arena, and, according to his Twitter page, he can’t wait.
“Turkey is crazy right now,” he wrote. “We ready.”
Airports have not been kind to Bieber lately: He made news in March for walking through a Polish airport semi-naked.
