Justin Bieber fans waiting eagerly for new dates for his postponed international tour have been told the shows wont be going ahead.

Fan sites have reported that the remainder of the Canadian singers Justice World Tour dates have been cancelled, and Biebers website doesnt currently list any dates.

On ticket company Ticketmasters website, all concerts in the U.S., Ireland, France, Poland, Australia, Denmark and the Czech Republic are also shown as cancelled. The same goes for Biebers show in Bangkok, Thailand, according to event organizer Live Nation Tero.

The artist and his reps havent commented on the cancellations or given a reason.

Fans in London, where Bieber was originally scheduled to perform in February, received an email from events company AXS on Tuesday stating: We regret to inform you that the Justin Bieber shows planned to take place at The O2 arena have been cancelled.

We understand you will be disappointed and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, it said, adding that refunds will be issued.

Bieber first announced that he would be taking a break from performing in June, one month after his tour began, due to having Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, which left his face partially paralyzed.

The pop star then resumed touring at the end of July.

However, after going to Europe and performing six live shows, it took a real toll on him, the singer announced in a statement posted on Twitter in September.

He added that he needs to make his health the priority right now: Im going to be ok, but I need time to rest and get better.

When Will Smith marched onto the Oscars stage and smacked Chris Rock, the unpredictable moment served as a jarring interruption to Hollywoods feel-good celebration.

But once Smith returned moments later to accept his first-ever Academy Award, he delivered a tearful apology for an act sure to overshadow his milestone achievement. He seized the opportunity during Sunday nights awards to speak on being a fierce defender just like his tennis dad character Richard Williams from King Richard.

Smith felt like the protector of many including his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, after Rock made a joke about her appearance that didnt sit right with him.

Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family, Smith said as he began his acceptance speech after winning best actor honors. He apologized afterward to many people -- including tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, Richard Williams daughters -- but did not mention Rock in his apology.

Smith then spoke about being a protector for those who worked with him on the film such as Aunjanue Ellis along with Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton, the two actors who played Venus and Serena.

Im being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people, said Smith during his acceptance speech after winning his first-ever Oscar. I know to do what we do youve got to be able to take abuse. Youve got to be able to have people talk crazy about you. In this business, youve got to be able to have people disrespecting you. And youve got to smile and pretend like thats OK.

The exchange began when Rock took aim at Pinkett Smiths shaved head, saying, Jada, I love you. `G.I. Jane 2, cant wait to see it, all right? Rocks reference was made from the 1997 film G.I. Jane, starring Demi Moore, who shaved her head to portray a fictional Navy Seal candidate.

Pinkett Smith revealed in 2018 that she was diagnosed with alopecia. She has often discussed the challenges of hair loss on Instagram and other social media platforms.

The joke missed, badly.

Smith walked onto the stage from his front-row seat and took a swing at Rock with an open palm, generating a loud smack. Smith walked back to his seat and shouted for Rock to leave Pinkett Smith alone. Rock replied that he was just making a G.I. Jane joke -- and Smith yelled back at him a second time.

Smith shouted at Rock to keep my wifes name out of your (expletive) mouth, and the crowd hushed as it became clear this was no act.

The moment shocked the Dolby Theatre audience and viewers at home. At the commercial break, presenter Daniel Kaluuya came up to hug Smith, and Denzel Washington escorted him to the side of the stage. The two talked and hugged and Tyler Perry came over to talk as well.

Smith shared what Washington told him: At your highest moment, be careful because thats when the devil comes for you.

Im hoping the Academy invites me back, Will Smith said, as he concluded his on-stage remarks.

A representative for Rock didnt immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

After the show, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences issued a statement saying it does not condone violence of any form.

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement that it was aware of the incident.

The incident involved one individual slapping another, the statement read. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.

That was the greatest night in the history of television, Rock said before resuming his role as presenter.

A few minutes later, rapper Sean Combs -- on stage to introduce a tribute to The Godfather -- tried to play peacemaker and suggested Smith and Rock settle their differences at an Oscars afterparty.

Will and Chris, were going to solve that like family at the Gold party, Combs said.

The reverberations did not stop there. Several people approached Smith and Pinkett Smith in the commercial breaks that followed; Keith Urban hugged Smith during one stoppage in the show, and Nicole Kidman also went over to say a few words as well.

Backstage, during interview sessions with winners, the Rock-Smith incident seemed like something few -- if anyone -- wanted to discuss.

Im not talking about that, said Ahmir Questlove Thompson, the director of Summer of Soul, which won an Oscar for best documentary.

The confrontation overshadowed Smiths milestone accomplishment. He was previously nominated twice for best actor, for his role in Ali in 2002 and The Pursuit of Happyness in 2007. In those films, he portrayed real-life characters: Boxing legend Muhammad Ali and Chris Garner, a homeless salesman.

This time, Smith won against formidable competition including Andrew Garfield, Javier Bardem, Benedict Cumberbatch and Denzel Washington -- who won his first and only best actor Oscar award in 2002 over Smith for Training Day.

Pinkett Smith was also the subject of jokes from Rock when he hosted the Oscars in 2016. She did not attend the Oscars that year, saying at the time her decision stemmed from a lack of diversity among award nominees and how Black artists were not properly represented.

I think we have to sometimes remember, like at a certain point, everyone breaks, said TV personality Karamo Brown. But I think these are two men that will actually come together, figure it out and like say `OK, enough is enough, Im sorry. ... I havent been in that situation. I never condone violence or anything of that nature, but I also could understand protecting those you love.

Rapper Cardi B plans to pay the funeral costs for those who lost their lives in a deadly fire in that New York City borough.

In total 17 people died after a fire ripped through their Bronx apartment building.

The state of New York announced this week that it would be granting US$2 million to a fund for the victims.

Cardi B, who is a Bronx native, said in a statement to CNN that Im extremely proud to be from the Bronx and I have lots of family and friends who live and work there still.

So, when I heard about the fire and all of the victims, I knew I needed to do something to help, she said. I cannot begin to imagine the pain and anguish that the families of the victims are experiencing, but I hope that not having to worry about the costs associated with burying their loved ones will help as they move forward and heal. I send my prayers and condolences to everyone affected by this horrific tragedy.

According to her rep, the artist partnered up with The Mayors Fund to Advance New York City to make sure that the families of all the victims would be included in her donation and that the final wishes for their loved ones were met.

We are grateful for Cardi B, a real superstar on and off the mic, for granting some critical financial relief to families of the victims, New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement. The city will be forever thankful to her and also to the grassroots donors and corporate partners who have been able to offer immediate support for our neighbors in need, to reestablish themselves during this difficult time.
