1 Jestin beber.....One step too far for fans on Thu Apr 29, 2010 2:12 am

Hundreds of frenzied teenagers
mobbed 16-year-old pop star Justin Bieber and knocked down his mother as he
arrived in New Zealand, stealing his hat as he was rushed through the airport
to escape the fans.

The heartthrob Canadian singer
tweeted his 2.1 million fans Wednesday to report: "Finally got to New
Zealand last night. The airport was crazy. Not happy that someone stole my hat
and knocked down my mama. Come on people."

The star's mother, Pattie Mallette,
tweeted that she was "OK" after being pushed over by rampaging fans
at Auckland Airport late Tuesday. "Thanks for all ur support!! I'm ok
thank you!!!," she wrote.

It was his mother's posting of
videos of Bieber singing on YouTube that first caught the attention of the
music industry. His song "Baby" became a top-ten hit on iTunes
earlier this year, and his popularity has grown to teen idol status.

Before arriving at the airport, the
blond-haired singer had told fans that he wanted to sign autographs and have
pictures taken. But police and security had to shut the opportunity down
because fans were pushing.

The frenzy followed similar scenes
in Sydney, Australia, earlier in the week, where police canceled a Bieber
concert after surging crowds crushed some fans. The most serious injury was a
fractured kneecap.

A similar situation occurred at a
mall in Long Island, New York, in November. Bieber's free concert was canceled
at the 11th hour when hundreds of fans stampeded after a reported sighting of
the teen star.

In New Zealand, a mob of mainly teen
girls screamed their welcome and swarmed toward Bieber at the airport. Escorted
by security, police and minders, Bieber quickly left the airport out a side

A waiting black SUV whisked him
away, leaving some fans sobbing with disappointment.

After Bieber's departure, teen Tory
Shaffett said she was having trouble breathing.

"Oh my god, he was so amazing
and beautiful. I can't believe I saw him," she told reporters.

Bieber bungee jumped off Auckland
Harbor Bridge on Wednesday and posted footage on his Twitter account.

"I'll definitely be back,"
he added.
