Justin Bieber was singled out for a search by airport security staff as he prepared to fly out of Puerto Rico over the weekend (19-20Oct13).

The Boyfriend hitmaker was in the country for a gig in San Juan and he was waiting to board his private jet when officials took him to one side and went through his bags, according to Tmz.com.

Security officers reportedly told the star he was the subject of a random stop, and after the search was completed - delaying Bieber for more than an hour - he was allowed to continue his journey.

The singer's Believe concert tour continues on Tuesday (22Oct13) in the Dominican Republic.
