Amid news Justin Bieber has canceled the rest of his Purpose world tour, new details are coming out.
And it turns out, his ticket sales for his last leg haven't been doing so well!
According to Billboard, AEG Presents sources say the final 14 shows weren't selling that well, which they believe is because he was continuing to play stadiums without a new album since Purpose.

Sounds like Justin Bieber's decision to cancel the rest of his Purpose tour was a spur-of-the-moment decision.
That or the singer really couldn't care less about screwing over his crew because according to TMZ, they claim they weren't even given a warning this might happen!

Sources close to the Purpose team allege the pop star blindsided them without even an explanation, and now 200 people are out of work because of it.
It's not a great situation, but as we previously reported, Justin's manager Scooter Braun made it clear it was time to put the singer first.
Still, Biebs' crew is left in the dust and seemingly without empathy for the 23-year-old's need to rest, as it was reminded he just had a month off.
