John Mayer's defense
Among those who take sides in favor of the Canadian singer is John Mayer, who used Twitter to express his support for his colleague:
“If someone cancels the remaining dates of a tour it means that he would do himself harm if he carried it on.
We have lost so many great artists lately. I'm on Justin's side for realizing it was time to stop. You should do it too ».
Justin's church hypothesis
While on the net they struggle to understand what prompted the singer to forfeit, presenter Richard Wilkins said live on Today Extra television that he got exclusive information directly from a source in contact with Justin:
“I am led to believe that the real reason he pulled out is that he wants to reconnect with faith and that it is even planning to start his own church”.
To support his statement the fact that the singer was seen at the annual Hillsong Church conference, the Evangelical Pentecostal Church of Australia.
«We know that was in Sydney a few weeks ago to meet the top management of Hillsong who were there.
Whether he is trying to collaborate with them for something more permanent or to start a religious activity of his own - such as creating his own church - we do not know for sure. But that's what an inside source told me,”Wilkins explained.
The most likely version
According to some People sources, Justin is fine for now, but he's "super exhausted" for what has been done so far e he no longer feels like dealing with the long journeys and the tight tour schedule.
“He's going to church and he's dating his church group. He is super exhausted. He likes to be on tour, but he has been around for 18 months now and now he is paying the consequences,”says the insider.
Version similar to that obtained by Entertainment Tonight: «We are talking about a guy who has had more than 150 dates, on six continents, for a year and a half and now he's tired.
He needs a break and as much as he didn't want to disappoint the fans, the best decision was to cancel the remaining stages. The tour has already been long enough and he is exhausted ».
The latest sightings
A few hours before the announcement Justin had been paparazzi in California during a walk on the beach with a mysterious brunette whose identity is unknown.
The girl also appears in a photo posted by the same singer on Instagram, which however did not want to leave any clues, not adding any captions.
