Justin Bieber Pays Tribute To Avalanna Routh, “Mrs. Bieber,” 2 Years After Death
Justin Bieber marked the two-year anniversary of the death of beloved fan Avalanna Routh on Friday.
Routh, known affectionately throughout the Belieber fan base as “Mrs. Bieber,” died at 6 years old in 2012 after battling a rare form of brain cancer. Earlier that year, she and her idol had spent time together, playing games and eating junk food in his hotel room.
Her death hit Bieber hard, and he paid tribute to her on the first anniversary of her death last September. On Friday, he showed that he still remembers her. “We will never forget out mrs Bieber. Love you @Avalanna,” tweeted Bieber. “Thank you for being a part of my life. I miss you. #2YearsWeMissYouAvalanna.” #2YearsWeMissYouAvalanna is now trending on Twitter in her memory.
After learning of Routh’s death in 2012, Bieber took to Twitter to respond. “Just got the worst news ever. One of the greatest spirits I have ever known is gone. Please pray for her family and for her,” he wrote. “RIP Avalanna. I love you.” He continued, “Please show respect to her and her family. Say a prayer for her and for them. I miss her.” One week later, Bieber kicked off his “Believe” tour and paid tribute to the little girl by dedicating his hit “One Less Lonely Girl” to Routh. As he performed, photos of her played on giant screens. After the 2012 concert, Bieber wrote on Twitter, “Goodnight Avalanna. Tonight was for u. I love u.”
