Charlie Puth has apologised after slamming Justin Bieber inside a foul-mouthed outburst during his concert in Dallas, Texas, on Friday.
Following a rendition of his track We Don't Talk Anymore, which features Justin's ex Selena Gomez on vocals, Charlie shouted, "F**k you, Justin Bieber," to some shocked audience.
Now, the See You Again hitmaker has aimed to make amends by posting an extensive apology message on Twitter.com. However, he later deleted the tweets.
"I am an immense @JustinBieber fan and I do not have anything but wonderful landmarks to say about him with the exceptional music always,” Charlie reportedly wrote in the series of messages on Saturday. "Please believe it is in your heart to forgive me and understand that this is from a real place. I am not an average person.
"I am very sorry if I offended anyone, and mostly to Justin. His tasks are inspiring. I would never intentionally or publicly bash him. I was bullied where stuff like this were asked me at all times, basically all of gaming until the end of high school graduation."
HollywoodLife.com also report that Up All night singer wrote a lengthier apology that she posted at a later date the social media marketing site, which read: "Hi everyone. I wanted to get rid of something up. I tweeted this early this morning, but I thought it might be much more effective if I wrote this in a single cohesive note rather than a group of tweets.
"What I said for the concert about Justin yesterday was supposed to be lighthearted, and sounded so in my mind with the time, in reality hearing it now it sounded mean and uncalled for, that this was.
"My goal in everyday life as a person in addition to being an artists would be to never exchange hateful vernacular between other artists, or anyone even. The thematic and lyrical element that is in the song I wrote entitled ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ hits not far from home in my opinion and I let my emotions acquire the best of me yesterday evening mid song.
"I hope his fans can accept my apology and recognize that people make mistakes and that I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t make any. I deeply apologize for my words."
Both apologies have been deleted, no mention of the outburst is featured on his Twitter feed. One Call Away singer, who performed See You Again for the Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday with Wiz Khalifa, later thanked his fans after he won the Favourite Collaboration honour with the song.
"WOW! Thank you Kid's Choice. What an honor! Thank you," he wrote. "It's crazy that I spent my childhood years watching The Kids Choice Awards eating pizza on my own couch now I just played onto it with Wiz."
