Justin Bieber's wax figure is set to be removed from the Madame Tussauds museum in New York since excessive groping on fans' behalf has caused it to melt.
As Page Six reports, the Bieber figure wasn't protected or restricted to fans, allowing Beliebers to "grope, fondle and grab" the singer and ultimately cause damage to the figure.
"With no ropes or barriers to stop them, thousands of fans have had their photographs taken with him since then - but it has taken its toll," a source said. The museum's general manager Bret Pidgeon also issued a statement, confirming JB's return in the near future.
"This is disappointing, but hopefully we can welcome a new 'grown-up' Justin back to the attraction in the near future," Pidgeon said.
