Justin Bieber fans in Argentina will have to go out of the country to see the pop star perform.

According to Bieber, his Purpose tour will not be stopping in Argentina, due to "legal conditions."

"If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you," the 22-year-old singer tweeted on Monday. "Argentina I do love you. It is in fact one of my favorite places to tour. I wish this was not the case. My lawyers say it is what it is."

Bieber added: "Argentinian Beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but until the legal conditions change there I can't."

He then posted an apology gif.

Last year, an Argentinian judge issued an arrest warrant for Bieber in regard to an alleged assault of a photographer in 2013. The "Sorry" singer was accused of sending his bodyguards outside a nightclub to attack the man. The warrant was revoked, but the charges were not dismissed, according to the Associated Press.

Also in 2013, Bieber offended some fans in Buenos Aires when he attempted to remove some Argentinian flags that were thrown onto the stage by using his feet and microphone stand. He later apologized for the incident.

A video also surfaced this year of Bieber tossing what appeared to be an Argentinian flag out of a car window.

None of these alleged instances were mentioned in his recent tweets.

News that Bieber won't be performing in Argentina comes after the singer exemplified some bizarre behavior in Boston, Massachusetts. During his time in the New England city, he was spotted walking around barefoot, listening to music in a tree and ordering $2,400 worth of shots at a nightclub.

He also announced that he would no longer be taking photos with Beliebers, because he felt like a "zoo animal."
