Justin Bieber is no stranger to controversy, especially in Latin America.

From pulling down his pants while visiting the Mayan ruins in Tulum to being charged with vandalism after spraying graffiti in Rio de Janeiro, these are just a few incidents that seemingly led to his bad-boy rep.

Now, the 22-year-old singer is in hot water for some old charges in Argentina. 

The Canadian – who starts his Purpose World Tour in South America this spring – was just indicted for an incident that occurred back in 2013 in Bueno Aires.

Bieber is being accused of allegedly ordering his security guards to beat up and steal a photographer’s money and camera.

Back in 2014, Bieber was summoned to Argentine court to testify about these allegations. However, the singer failed to appear; an arrest warrant was issued but then revoked.

But now thanks to the indictment, the singer can risk jail time if spotted in the country.

According to TMZ, until the case is solved, Bieber will not be able to step foot in Argentina.

Earlier this year, the singer took to Twitter to reveal he would be unable to perform in Argentina this spring due to "legal conditions."

In another tweet, the singer added:

If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you.

This is especially bad news for all the Argentine Beliebers, who are one of his largest fan bases.

But according to his website, he will still make stops in Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and Chile.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time the singer has stirred up drama in Argentina. During his tour in South America back in 2013, Bieber was caught mishandling a flag thrown on stage.

But why?!

Let's hope it's not "too late to say sorry."
