Justin Bieber has apologised for mocking Lindsay Lohan's financial problems.
The Beauty And A Beat singer insisted he didn't mean to bash the 26-year-old troubled starlet - who is set to go on trial next week after being charged with lying to police about a car accident and is also battling to pay her huge tax bills - in a lengthy rant on Instagram as he attempted to defend his recent bad behaviour, during which he said: "And to those comparing me to Lindsey (sic) Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements."
The 19-year-old star, who deleted the comment about the Liz & Dick star within 10 minutes of posting it, told gossip website TMZ.com: "My post was only up for a few minutes but I realised right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say.
"I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
The Canadian singer immediately reposted his original comments, bragging about his success, without the reference to Lindsay.
Justin admitted he would make probably more mistakes in the future despite his desire to be a "good person".
He also wrote: "All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks (sic)"
