Sources tell TMZ that Justin Bieber’s relationship with Hillsong Church and its leader, Carl Lentz, has grown “intense" as the pop star has chosen to cancel the remainder of his Purpose world tour. “He’s becoming the Tom Cruise of that church,” an insider observes. And although Lentz didn’t recommend that the Biebs cancel his Tour, the spiritual leader's worldview has influenced the pop star’s choice. “He made his decision based on spiritual soul-searching and his own view of the path in life he should be taking,” a source adds. More worrying for fans, it’s unclear if the tour cancellation is an aberration or a sign that Bieber is going to step away from his music career for the foreseeable future.
