UPDATE: Jeremy Bieber, Justin’s Father, has denied any involvement with with Sunday’s fundraiser at the Bowmanville Zoo.
My family is in no way affiliated or supports any zoo. Nor are we apart of or the host of any fundraiser.— Jeremy Bieber (@JeremyBieber) August 24, 2016
The zoo is closing after several months of controversy surrounding the zoo’s co-owner being accused of animal cruelty.
Bieber himself faced controversy after posing with some of the zoo animals this Spring.
The Bowmanville Zoo website is no longer selling the $295 tickets for the event. While they never specifically stated that Justin will be there, they did list members of his family and “…who knows, maybe few other big celebrities will make an appearance that day too!”
