Justin Bieber drew boundaries with some of his most impassioned fans after coming home to a crew of them loitering outside his New York City apartment.
In a video TikTok user @VanessaFex posted on Friday, the 27-year-old pop star walks from a car to his apartment building, finding a crowd of fans waiting for him outside the entrance. Once he reaches the group, he turns to a fan who asks him for a hug and politely explains why he doesn’t want them to wait outside his residence.
“I hear you, I hear you. But this is my home. You know what I mean? This is where I live,” he explains. “And I don’t appreciate you guys being here. You know when you come home at the end of the night, and you want to relax? This is my space to do that. So I would appreciate it if you guys could leave.”
This isn’t the first time Bieber had to remind fans to respect his privacy.
Last October, he called out fans on his Instagram story for waiting outside his home.
“How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment,” he posted. “This is not a a hotel. It’s my home.”
