The 21-year-old singer was spotted riding around on a scooter, looking “relaxed and happy” according to an eyewitness. Another source spotted Bieber on Sunset Boulevard near the Hollywood Palladium and said he was “smiling” and “seemed happy.”
A source close told ET that at around 4 p.m., the singer was back on the road, on a “little trip” with friends instead of heading to New York for his previously scheduled appearances. The source added the singer was heading south from Los Angeles, passing through Orange County and staying with friends for the night.
Earlier in the day, production sources told ET that the pop star was scheduled to shoot his performance for CBS’ Thanksgiving Day Parade special on Tuesday evening, after appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, but abruptly canceled both appearances for undisclosed personal reasons.
Regardless, the show will go on without Bieber. Hosted by ET's Kevin Frazier, the holiday special will feature portions from the 89th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, as well as performances by Broadway productions of Jersey Boys and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.
The Thanksgiving Day Parade will air live from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET on CBS.
