Musicians waste time on world tours in a variety of different ways. Justin Bieber apparently spends his free hours at brothels from time to time.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, the pop star was photographed leaving a brothel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, last night. He attempted to dash into the back seat of a car while wearing a white sheet, and photographers who were tipped off to his presence at Centaurus, later confirming through Bieber's security team that he was, indeed, the person they spotted.

The singer was apparently at Centaurus for three hours with a friend prior to his departure, with a few girls from the brothel getting escorted separately to his hotel room after he left, according to sources.

Later, Brazilian news site EGO reported that Bieber had been kicked out of his hotel for breaking rules, though it was not disclosed what those rules were.

Prostitution is legal in Brazil, though brothels are not. However, The Daily Beast notes that it's still regarded as one of the best of its kind in the world, with prices as low as $210 for 40 minutes of action.

Bieber is currently in Brazil on his Believe world tour, with a date today in Sao Paulo. He has remained mum about the incident so far.
