Justin Bieber is seeking spiritual solace

JUSTIN Bieber hunted for a Manhattan property with a private pool to perform a "cleansing ritual" through a baptism-like ceremony on Saturday.

The 19-year-old singer was keen to find a Manhattan property with a private pool on Saturday  to conduct a "cleansing ritual" with the Hillsong Church NYC which believes a person should seek baptism in the Holy Spirit to live a fruitful Christian life.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Justin and his team spent time on Saturday searching for a place with a pool where they could conduct a baptism for him, a cleansing ritual, with the Hillsong Church. But they couldn't find a place in time."

This comes after Justin made headlines for getting himself in trouble.

The 'Confident' hitmaker is facing legal problems in Toronto for allegedly assaulting a limo driver, he allegedly egged a neighbour's house in Los Angeles and was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving without a licence in Miami.

Another source added: "Justin is serious about his Christian faith, and after recent events, he needed to take a pause."

Justin is believed to have been baptised as a child and is known to be a fan of the megachurch - which is a Protestant church that has more than 2,000 persons in average weekend attendance.
