Justin Bieber's worst moments of all time

Justin Bieber has come a long way since his YouTube days.

His time in the spotlight has been filled with success -- and controversy. Most recently, he accidentally hit a paparazzo with his truck. 

The Canadian singer got his big break in 2008 when American talent manager Scooter Braun discovered Bieber by watching his YouTube videos. Since then, Bieber, 23, has been seen as a teenage heartthrob, but also a star who has had outbursts and career-damaging moments.

Here's a round-up of some of Bieber's worst moments in the spotlight:

Arrives two hours late for London concert: March 2013

Rumors swirled days afterward that the singer was late to his own concert because he was playing video games, then threw a "tantrum."

Bieber failed to present appropriate paperwork to customs in time and the monkey was put in an animal shelter in Munich, The Associated Press reported.
