Justin Bieber is heading home. The 19-year-old was seen leaving Panama after a brief break there following his arrest last week. He was accompanied by his manager Scooter Braun and mentor Usher, who flew to Punta Chame on Saturday for emergency talks with the troubled singer.
Justin seemed in good spirits as he boarded his flight out of Tocumen International airport on Tuesday. Dressed in black and white trousers, a baggy white T-shirt and a baseball cap, with a gold chain around his neck, the singer managed a small smile for the waiting cameras as he walked through the departure gate.
The Baby star has had his every move followed since his arrest for DUI and drag racing. After his court appearance, he flew out of Miami to Panama with his entourage, including model Chantel Jeffries and father Jeremy, who were both with him at the time of his arrest.
It's also reported that he was working on a new music video during his stay. "#confidentvideo tomorrow," Justin tweeted on Tuesday, before posting a mid-flight message that simply read, "Up in the air."
Justin's close friends and family are no doubt pleased to see him back in LA. As well as Scooter and Usher, his mum Pattie Mallette reportedly visited him in Panama to urge him to seek help.
With his every move followed by cameras, it's thought Justin is starting to get fed up with fame. According to RadarOnline, he wants to quit music and open a tattoo parlour with his dad, while TMZ is reporting that he is ready to move out of the same Calabasas neighborhood where he was accused of egging a neighbour's house.
But he isn't letting the negative attention get to him. "Justin is doing OK right now," a source told E! Online. "He's with his friends and family. That's what is most important now, being surrounded by family and his closest friends.
"Pattie is being a mum, putting her son's best interests first, whatever that means at any time," the insider added. "There are things being said all over, but she is with him when he needs her and will always be there for him. She would never do anything to harm him."
