Pop star reportedly reprimanded for kicking football in Vatican building

The pop star Justin Bieber was reportedly reprimanded for kicking a football around the Vatican last week.

The “One Time” singer paid £16,000 for a private tour of Vatican City, taking in the Vatican museum and the papal apartments, which are not occupied by Pope Francis. But it is understood that he irritated staff when he began to kick a ball around the corridors.


The 20-year-old previously embarrassed himself on The Late Show with David Letterman when he referred to the Sistine Chapel as the “Sixteenth Chapel”.

The singer was born in Canada and raised a Christian. In the past he has said that Jesus is the “reason I am here”.

His mother, Pattie Mallette, was baptised and raised a Catholic, and her son attended a Catholic school.
