Justin Bieber reportedly receives $10million for playing billionaire’s pre-wedding party

Justin Bieber has reportedly been paid $10million (£7.8million) to play a pre-wedding party for the son of the richest man in Asia.

The Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani, chairman of the company Reliance Industries, has an estimated net worth of over $120billion, and chose to spend some of it on an extravagant celebration ahead of his son Anant’s wedding to Radhika Merchant.

The show went down at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai, India, and included Bieber running through a number of his biggest songs, including ‘Baby’, ‘Sorry’ and ‘What Do You Mean?’

It follows on from a similarly exclusive show that Rihanna played for the couple in March, her first full-length set in over six years.


Bieber has been withdrawing from the spotlight in recent years, opening up in 2019 about his ongoing struggles with anxiety. In 2022, he also took a formal break from performing live, cancelling all of the remaining live shows on his ‘Justice’ tour after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and suffering partial facial paralysis.

He reportedly turned down the offer to join Usher during his Super Bowl performance this year, as he “wasn’t feeling it”. A source claimed to Page Six that “there’s no bad blood between Usher and Justin,” adding, “Justin just wasn’t up for it.”

In the end, Usher was joined by guests including Alicia KeysH.E.R and will.i.am.

He did, however, make a surprise appearance onstage with Wizkid and Tems during their performance of ‘Essence’ at Coachella 2024.

It marked Bieber’s return to the Coachella stage, having performed as a guest during Ariana Grande‘s 2019 set and with Daniel Caesar for their hit ‘Peaches’ in 2022.

He also played a private show in February at a private NHL All-Star party, ahead of the All-Star Game, for which he served as a team captain, alongside Michael BubléTate McRae and Will Arnett.

In April, Bieber led the tributes to his close friend and rapper Chris King, who was reportedly shot dead aged 32.
