TMZ’s Norway State Of Emergency Coverage Yesterday (May 30Th 2012)
****Police in Norway are on the verge of declaring a state of emergency in Oslo, after tens of thousands of unruly Justin Bieber fans overran the city — and now, they’re begging the singer for help.
Justin’s scheduled to perform 4 new songs tonight outside Oslo’s famed opera house as part of his “Around the World” TV special — and we’re told crazed Bieber fans from all over Europe have descended on the city for the event.
We’re told the crowds have swelled to such overwhelming numbers, the police lost control — and are pleading with Bieber to take the stage early … before all hell breaks loose … as in RIGHT NOW.
Bieber’s aware of the situation — he just tweeted, “…for the show to happen u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen.”
Bieber is currently in a secret location and will be helicoptered to the stage.

Justin Bieber is a suspect in a criminal battery case — May 27Th, 2012..
Justin was in Calabasas, where he lives, just yesterday after noon, Sunday at a mall called ‘The Commons‘. A fed up Bieber ended up boiling over after one Pap got “too close” – with an altercation ensuing as Gomez tried desperately to calm her “Boyfriend” singing beau’s nerves.
The photographer called 911, and when cops arrived Justin and Selena Gomez had already split.
The photographer complained of pain to his upper torso, an ambulance was summoned and he was taken to a local hospital where he was examined and released a short time later.
The photographer filed a police report naming Justin as the culprit. Cops are investigating the incident as a misdemeanor battery.
Law enforcement say detectives want to speak with Justin, Selena and any other witnesses.
*** reportedly — several witnesses at the scene say after the altercation, a lawyer walked up to the paparazzi and said he could get a lot of money out of the incident and advised the dude to call for an ambulance and file a police report.
Witnesses also say the photographer had been blocking Justin’s car as he was trying to leave. Justin got out of the car and asked the guy to move away but he wouldn’t, and a scuffle ensued.
