February 2014: Bieber Go Home!
Not only was Bieber struggling with judicial court issues, it appeared that he was losing in the court of public opinion, too. A WhiteHouse.gov online petition to deport the Canadian singer had become the second-largest petition in the site's history, earning 262,817 signatures. Only 100,000 signatures are needed to earn a response from the White House. The President, to his credit, has remained mum on the matter, but earlier in February, the First Lady advised Bieber's mother to be "very present in his life right now."
