Happy to be home! Justin Bieber didn't throw a fit or send out angry tweets after getting held up at LAX for questioning on Thursday, April 24. Instead, the "Heartbreaker" singer stayed positive and seemed unfazed by the whole incident.
"Life is good. Keep it positive always," the 20-year-old wrote to his 51 million followers. "Everybody spread the love and positivity." In another tweet, the pop phenom shared a photograph of himself leaving the airport. "All smiles," he captioned.
Us Weekly confirmed last night that Bieber was stopped in Los Angeles after returning from his trip to Asia. A source told Us "it was a routine secondary set of questioning that Justin has to go through now every time he comes back in the country because he's a foreign national." His rep exclusively confirmed to Us that he was later released after being held for four hours.
The situation caused a huge frenzy via social media at the time. After all, a petition to deport the Canadian native received 100,000 signatures back in January following his DUI Miami arrest.
Earlier this month, the White House finally gave its response to the document. "Sorry to disappoint, but we won't be commenting on this one," a statement released by the White House on April 18 read. "We'll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber's case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows."
