The latest pictures come after new video footage appeared to show the Canadian pop star hit the male through the open window of his car as he was driven by a chauffeur to the city’s Palau Sant Jordi for latest stop on his Purpose tour.

There may be trouble ahead: It has now emerged that the fan is a minor who is contemplating suing the troubled singer
Oh dear: Police confirmed this on Wednesday morning that they were not investigating the incident and said it was up to the victim to decide whether to make a formal complaint

It has now emerged that the fan is a minor who is contemplating suing the troubled singer.
Police confirmed this on Wednesday morning that they were not investigating the incident and said it was up to the victim to decide whether to make a formal complaint.
The Spanish news outlet that captured the images said the boy was a minor and had told regional Mossos d’Esquadra officers who turned up moments later that he was not sure whether to report Bieber over his actions or put the incident behind him.
A spokesman for the Mossos d’Esquadra confirmed: ‘What’s occurred here is what would be considered a misdemeanour rather than a crime.
Fuming: Justin’s rage was clear to see as he exited his vehicle furiously
There he goes: He climbed out of the car to talk to the group but his anger was etched upon his face
Going through it all: His team looked on as he explained what had happened
‘For a crime of assault to have occurred, the victim would have needed medical attention more than once. The footage shows there’s been no sustained attack.
‘As we’re talking about a misdemeanour rather than a serious crime, we haven’t got the power to act off our own backs and so we’re not actively investigating this.
‘This is an incident that occurred between two people and the person who received the punch or push will have to make a formal complaint if he wants to take the matter any further.
‘He can do that at a police station or the local court.
‘If he registers a complaint with police, we will simply pass that on to the relevant court so they can decide whether to take further action.
‘At the moment we’re not aware the male fan has registered a formal complaint.’
Arrival: Justin Bieber was caught on camera reportedly punching a male fan in the face as he arrived at his concert in Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi on Tuesday night
Point of contact: As the fan followed the car, while still touching the star, Justin’s hand was seen jabbing at him before he was whisked away to the concert venue
The incident is the latest in a string of issues for the pop star, who famously got into an altercation with Orlando Bloom in the summer of 2014.
Justin and Orlando were with respective groups of friends at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza before Troy star Orlando attempted to throw a punch at him.
The incident occurred after Orlando’s dining partner Leonardo DiCaprio had proceeded to shoo away the pop singer with his hand, leading Justin to provoke a fight which saw Orlando jump over a sofa to get at the star.

Supportive: A pal held onto the bloodied fan following the frenzied moment
The bloody lip: Checking the blood coming off his hands, fan was surrounded by friends
The two men met by chance at the Spanish eatery – where Lindsay Lohan and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs were also dining – but appear to have a common connection in Orlando’s estranged wife Miranda Kerr.
Miranda – who recently got engaged to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel – is also the mother of Orlando’s three-year-old son, Flynn.
One version of the event heard that Justin told Orlando he had slept with Miranda, whom he first met at a Victoria’s Secret show in 2012, which prompted him to hit the singer.
The jump: The clip captured the shocking moment the fan reached into the car
Shock: Despite his shock, his pal appeared tickled by the incident

Justin told Orlando to ‘Say hi to Miranda for me!’ just moments after the actor tried to punch him, one onlooker told MailOnline.
Following the altercation, Justin continued to provoke the actor by posting a picture of his former wife in a bikini with a crown symbol caption, followed by a picture of Orlando wiping his eyes as if to cry.
It was also claimed, though never confirmed, that Orlando had briefly dated Justin’s ex Selena Gomez.
Warm welcome: The Canadian pop star enthusiastically embraced his young devotees
More recently, in June, the singer got into a physical showdown with somebody much less famous, though a lot bigger, when he reportedly picked a fight with 6ft 5in fan Lamont Richmond outside a hotel in Cleveland, Ohio.
According to Lamont, the group enjoyed a friendly chat with the Canadian star but the atmosphere changed when he asked Justin for a photo and an autograph.
Justin, who has previously explained he won’t take photos with fans anymore because he feels like ‘a zoo animal’, allegedly snapped, telling the man: ‘No autographs tonight, motherf*****.’
Visit: The singer was accompanied by a small team of handlers during his evening stroll
Lamont claimed to TMZ that the star smelled of alcohol, and was certain he could have ‘killed’ the 5ft9in singer if had gone ‘full force.’
Video emerged showing the singer getting into a shoving match with the man who is twice his size, before deciding to really push the envelope and throw a punch.
Despite Justin’s recent efforts to bulk up and grow a mustache, the star proved no match for his hulking adversary who, after recovering from the shock, bundled him to the ground with ease.
Altercation: Back in 2014, Justin was seen fighting with Orlando Bloom at an Ibiza hotspot
Earlier this year, Justin took to Instagram to explain his reluctance to pose for snapshots with fans, writing: ‘If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture I’m done taking pictures.’
‘It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity. I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture.’
He continued: ‘And people who say “but I bought your album” know that you got my album and you got what you paid for AN ALBUM! It doesn’t say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo.’
Fisticuffs: In June, he was caught on camera fighting with a 6fit5in fan who had asked him for an autopgraph
The same night as his latest apparent altercation, Justin was seen cuddling up to young devotees while reportedly visiting an optical store.
Hours before he was due to take to the stage at the city’s Palau Sant Jordi, the Sorry singer – clad in a red tracksuit – was spotted embracing and taking photographs with a crowd of excited youngsters.
The star appeared to be in good spirits as he welcomed one fan after the other for the impromptu meet-and-greet session on the bustling streets.
Sources tell MailOnline that Justin was on his way to a local optician’s store with a small group of handlers when he stopped to meet some of his fans.
When his tour made its way through Italy over the weekend, Justin lifted his short on stage to reveal that he’d had the words ‘Son Of God’ inked across his upper abs.
It has been reported that the star already has 56 tattoos – including a portrait of Jesus Christ on his leg, and many others that reflect his Christian faith.
In the past, he has commissioned celebrity tattoo artist JonBoy for his bodily inkings, but it is currently unknown who is responsible for his latest tattoo.
Justin performed via satellite at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.
The What Do You Mean singer won four American Music Awards this year, which makes him one of the top 10 AMA winners of all time.

The musician was seen making an escape from the country on Wednesday morning, flashing a broad smile across his face.
Justin was flanked by heavy security as he fled Spain following the previous evening’s altercation.
He held a phone in his hand and appeared to make conversation with the crowd that gathered outside the airport.
