Following the news that Justin Bieber has been forced to postpone two days of his world tour after testing positive for Covid-19, his manager has a few thoughts on who is to blame for the unfortunate turn of events.
Taking to Instagram to wish Bieber well, Scooter Braun revealed he had formulated an interesting 'conspiracy theory' about the reason for the singer's positive test, connecting it to his own bout with Covid back in December.
'While it was confirmed today that my dear friend @justinbieber is recovering from Covid and has to move his show in vegas to June I couldn’t help but notice a strange coincidence,' Braun wrote.
In his post, he went on to reveal that Bieber had recently attended the Super Bowl along with his wife Hailey and friends including Kendall Jenner.
Yet what really caught Braun's attention was a figure lurking in the background of Bieber's Super Bowl photos, who he revealed to be a man name John Terzian – the very same man that Braun himself had caught Covid from a few months ago.
'Dare I say it… has he struck again?' Braun speculated. 'I’m not saying Mr. Terzian gave Justin Covid… I’m just saying there are multiple variants which gives him multiple ways to strike.'
The famous manager to the stars continued his tongue in cheek allegations, musing that his friend may have been upset at the lack of an after party for Bieber's scheduled Vegas shows, and 'wanted another bite at the apple'.
'We just don’t know. We might never know. But am I haunted by these strange facts? Will I lose sleep for many nights in the months to come? Absolutely. We see you Mr. Terzian. We see you. And we fear you.'
Just days after kicking off the North American leg of his tour, which has already been postponed repeatedly due to the pandemic, it was announced that two Las Vegas shows were being rescheduled following 'positive test results within the Justice Tour family'.
While the identity of those who tested positive was not revealed in the statement, a representative for Bieber has since confirmed to The New York Times that Bieber himself was among them, and that he was experiencing 'mild symptoms'.
Terzian has not yet responded to the allegations that it was he who gave Bieber Covid.
