Justin Bieber must have heaved a big sigh of relief after he got a clean chit from the Argentine government. The country has withdrawn the arrest warrant issued against the Canadian pop star and his name is off Argentina's most wanted list.
The “Baby” hitmaker's name was put on the most wanted list of criminals in the Latin American country after he did not show up at Buenos Aires for police interrogation over an incident with a paparazzo in November 2013. Photographer Diego Pesoa claimed that the singer's bodyguards attacked him on Bieber's orders when he was taking the star's pictures. The photographer said he had to seek hospital treatment for his injuries.
Bieber was asked to attend questioning in November 2014 but never showed up, so an international arrest warrant was issued in April. To have a warrant in his name meant that Bieber would have been taken into custody immediately if he entered Argentina.
However, TMZ is now reporting that officials in Argentina have changed their minds, and for some unknown reason, have withdrawn the warrant. An Argentinian court sent official notification to Interpol Argentina requesting to erase Bieber's name from the list of fugitives.
Meanwhile, the singer is currently dating model Hailey Baldwin and went out on a skating date with her on Tuesday. The pair was spotted having sushi lunch in Beverly Hills, the Mail Online writes. In photos, Bieber is seen wearing a long T-shirt and matching grey three-fourth shorts, while Baldwin is dressed casually in a black jacket and matching black denims.
The rumored couple also attended a religious event in Australia last month. Baldwin, 18, was spotted with Bieber at Sydney's Allphones Arena, where the Hillsong Church conducted five days of religious seminars.
