Justin Bieber's waxwork removed from Madame Tussauds

12 February 2014, 07:39

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber's waxwork has been taken down from Madame Tussauds.

The figure of the 19-year-old star has been removed from display at the New York museum on West 42nd Street after it began to wear away from so many fans touching it over the years.

The statue shows Justin when he was younger and, despite regular maintenance, "it no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction", so bosses decided to withdraw it from the site.

Madame Tussauds general manager, Bret Pidgeon, told the New York Post newspaper: "This is disappointing, but hopefully we can welcome a new grown-up Justin back to the attraction in the near future."

Meanwhile, the Baby hitmaker - who has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired licence and resisting arrest after he was caught allegedly drag racing in Miami last month - sent his fans into meltdown on Monday after he quietly changed his name to 'Bizzle' on Instagram following reports he is planning a career in rap.

However, the news didn't go down well with rapper Lethal Bizzle, who accused him of stealing his name.

Lethal sent The Sun newspaper a statement, reading: "Myself and the DENCH Gang ain't happy about it. Nothing cool about the cheesiest boy in pop using your name to be 'cool'. He needs to #Leaveityeah! #Justinthiefer."

Judging by his recent posts on Instagram, it looks like Justin is hanging with the right crowd if he wants to become a rapper.
