Some "Beliebers" were brought to tears by Justin Bieber's departure from the swanky Orchid House on South Beach Friday night.

“He means my life, and I got to touch his head, I got to see him in person,” one crying girl said. “That’s the best moment I could ever feel. That’s the best feeling for me.”

Bieber left at about 9 p.m. in a SUV that was parked in the back alley behind the villa. A large crowd of devoted fans, as well as media, had been staking out the pop star at the Orchid House at 1350 Collins Ave. since Thursday.

Several dozen "Beliebers" camped out overnight into the early hours of Friday morning outside the Orchid House, where Bieber stayed after his DUI arrest.

"We've been here for three days in the cold," Bibiana Olmos said on Thursday night, as she waited with her daughter and other Bieber fans in an alley behind the vacation hideaway.

Bieber, 19, was charged with driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest in a drag-racing incident in a Miami Beach neighborhood early Thursday, police said. A judge set his bond at $2,500, and Bieber posted bond and was released about an hour after his court appearance.

NBC 6 obtained a photo of Bieber's traffic citations, showing Bieber's blood alcohol level was at .014 after a Breathalyzer test.

On Thursday night, the crowd of mostly young girls outside the Orchid House passed the time singing Bieber's hits and chanting "We love Justin!"

But they also talked about their discomfort with Bieber's increasingly bad boy image.

"I think he knows what he's doing, but at the same time, he's just like, confused," said Alejandra Alvarez.

"I kind of worry about it, but she'll still be here no matter what," explained Nelly Velazquez, who waited with her daughter Sabina Nogueras.

Nogueras, and several other girls, waited right by a back gate for a glimpse of Bieber.

"I just want to see him, like I love him so much," Nogueras said.

By 11 a.m. Friday, fans remained outside the Orchid House, throwing messages on paper tied to rocks over the gate.

"Come outside. You're amazing. I was here for so long last night, I was about to die," they read.

Bieber's father Jeremy Bieber defended his son in a tweet Friday morning that said:

 The singer's manager Scooter Braun also tweeted about Thursday's incident, saying:

Meanwhile, no further hearings are scheduled for Bieber in Miami-Dade court, and officials say he is not expected to appear in court.
