Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has cancelled his future fan meet and greets.

The What Do You Mean? hitmaker may have only just kicked off his Purpose World Tour but he's already decided to axe his intimate backstage experience, which cost $925 a pop, because they make him feel "drained and unhappy."

Taking to his Instagram account on Tuesday night, he wrote: "I'm going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy...

"Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression ..."

However, although he's claimed pulling the plug on his meet and greets was down to him feeling depressed, it's believed the 21-year-old pop star made the call after a security scare at his gig at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday when a fan got within 10 feet of him.

A source told TMZ: "This was the last straw in an increasing problem Justin's team has had in managing the number of people who wanted special access to the singer before and after the concert. Up to now, around 20 people purchased one-on-one packages, and up to 200 others paid to meet Justin in groups.

"He's had his hair pulled, clothes ripped and one fan even gave him the flu. Justin never complained, but Monday night's scare was a wake up call for security."
