"Is it too late now to say sorry" to all the disappointed fans? Scooter Braun doesn't think so.

In the aftermath of Justin Bieber's Purpose World Tour cancellation, his manager and SB Projects founder Scooter Braun thanked the team behind the mega-tour and the fans for their support in an Instagram post. "A man's soul and well-being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that," Braun writes of his longtime client.

Indeed, it has been 18 long months across six continents, and however sad the early finale might be for fans, Braun insists that "Justin will be back and I know he looks forward to performing for you and with you all again. One chapter ends and another begins." He kindly asks the fans to "stop commenting on all my other photos that have nothing to do with this :) just kidding....but I'm not."

Whether he's joking or not, the tour cancellation is no joke at this point, and the reasons, besides fatigue from the previous year and a half, are still unclear; Braun doesn't explain besides his mention of Justin's well-being.
