Fans got a little too hands-on...
The New York Post reports that the wax figure of Justin Bieber at Madame Tussauds New York (on West 42nd Street) is being retired due to excessive groping, fondling and grabbing by fans. The figure was set up during his younger days.
A source said: "With no ropes or barriers to stop them, thousands of fans have had their photographs taken with him since then — but it has taken its toll.
Tussauds said the figure has been damaged over the years even with regular maintenance. "It no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction" and was removed.
Madame Tussauds general manager Bret Pidgeon said: "This is disappointing, but hopefully we can welcome a new ‘grown-up' Justin back to the attraction in the near future."
