SUPERSTAR singer Justin Bieber was spotted wearing a Brighton and Hove Albion shirt.
It comes as the Canadian musician was joined by Brighton-born singer Sam Tompkins during a show in Trondheim, Norway.
Sam posted a series of photos on his social media, including two showing Justin accepting a shirt from Brighton and Hove Albion as a gift.
In an emotional post on Instagram, Sam said: “I was in this crowd once – now I get to share the stage with my brother.
“Justin Bieber, thank you for sharing this tremendous gift of love with me. and thank God that I was allowed to share the gift of music with others.”
Sam started his career busking the streets of Brighton – mainly Bond Street and Ship Street.
He rose to fame last August after Justin – one of the best-selling artists of all time – praised him for his music and encouraged his 250 million followers to listen to Sam’s single (W)hole.
Since then, Sam has worked with Justin and recently took to the stage to perform Justin’s hit single “Love Yourself” side by side.
During his recent support slot on stage, Sam said: “All my life Justin has been my favorite artist.
“I could cry saying that. I remember writing in my diary when I was 16 that one day I wanted to support him and here we are.”
In a previous interview with The Argus, Sam praised his hometown for giving him a platform to share his work.
“I owe a lot to Brighton and the people who live there for pushing me forward so early in my career and consistently since,” he said.
“I’m just super grateful that I can live my dream like this.”
Sam’s song (W)hole was released in August 2021. The track explores Sam’s feelings about the current state of the world.
“Sometimes it feels hopeless and when you look around there is so much that separates us, but the only way to get things going the right way is to work together,” he said.
