The teen singer has had a difficult few weeks

Justin Bieber is reportedly considering a move to Dubai.

The Canadian singer, 19, will play two shows in the Middle East next month and for his first visit has asked promoters to find him somewhere to live.

He’s considering keeping the property so he can spend more time hanging out in the strict United Arab Emirates city.

Justin may fancy an escape from home after being slammed for a number of controversies over the past few weeks.

When he brought his Believe tour to the UK in March, Justin was blasted by parents for arriving late on stage at the O2 Arena and was said to have behaved like a ‘brat’ backstage.

Earlier this month, he got into trouble with both German custom officials and animal rights campaigners after trying to sneak his pet monkey Mally into Munich on a private jet.

He later left the ‘miserable’ creature – thought to be just 14 weeks old – alone in an animal shelter while waiting for a heath certificate to be issued confirming it has no diseases.

Most recently, Justin was labelled ‘self-indulgent’ and ‘disgusting’ for writing in the guestbook at Anne Frank‘s former home that he hoped the young Holocaust victim would have been a fan of his.

‘He was going to stay in a hotel but is now looking at houses with a view to a longer-term stay,’ a source tells The Sun.

Justin will have to behave, though.’
