Justin Bieber has posted a touching tribute to a friend he lost in the Paris attacks.
Universal Music Group executive Thomas Ayad was amongst the victims of the shootings at the Bataclan at the Eagles Of Death Metal concert on November 13.
He was one of the 89 people who lost their lives in the terrorist attack at the music venue. The exec worked closely with acts such as Bieber and The Vamps in the record label’s French office.
Justin tweeted a heartfelt message about the loss of Ayad.

The 21-year-old singer also took a moment to pay tribute to the other victims of the massacre, by pausing during his shows last week to pray for those affected by what happened.
He also paid tribute during his acceptance speech for the HALO Hall of Fame Award in New York, according to Mail Online. He said: ‘There’s been some sad things happening in the world right now, and I think that we should all honour that and just take one moment of silence for that, if you guys could.’
Fellow musicians The Vamps, who also worked closely with Ayad, posted a message in remembrance:
Absolutely devastated to lose incredibly talented and welcoming members of our French record label last night. Incomprehensible #paris
