Justin Bieber has had a checkered history with various countries since his rise to fame.

And it seems the singer has also landed himself in hot water with Argentina.

Taking to Twitter on Monday, the Love Yourself star revealed he wasn’t able to perform in the country as part of his Purpose tour.

“Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but the Argentinian government won’t allow it. So sorry,” he wrote, in a now-deleted tweet.

“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,” he contined.

“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.

“Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but until the legal conditions change there I can’t.”

The Canadian – who’s currently in the middle of his worldwide Purpose tour – also shared a gif from his hit single Sorry as a way of apologising to any fans he had let down.

My fellow musicians,

Our advisory board members,

The right honorable Speaker of Parliament
