The 24-year-old “Love Yourself” singer, who used to be very close with Lovato, was out to lunch on Wednesday (July 25) in Los Angeles when a photographer asked him if he had spoken to Lovato since the incident.
“It’s very sad,” Bieber responded.
He added, “I haven’t talked to her, but my prayers go out to her and her family for sure. I thought she was sober, that’s terrible, right?”
Lovato is awake and recovering with her family following the incident.
Later that day, Bieber was pictured giving some money to a homeless man during his outing.
