Mexican president denies meeting Justin Bieber

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's president has denied a tweet by Justin Bieber saying the singer met with the president and his family prior to a show.

It was the latest sour note in Bieber's controversy-filled Latin American tour.

President Enrique Pena Nieto's office put out a tweet late Monday that read "@Presidenciamx denies meeting between President @EPN with the singer @justinbieber."

That was a response to a tweet from Bieber's official account saying "just met some amazing mexican beliebers and the presidente of mexico and his familia."

The 19-year-old pop sensation faces two criminal complaints and demands for refunds in Argentina, in addition to trouble with police for allegedly spraying graffiti in Brazil.
