Usher having crisis talks with Justin Bieber

The ‘More’ hitmaker, who is the 19-year-old star’s long-time mentor, decided to travel to Punta Chame to reportedly try to talk some sense into the young star, who arrived there on Saturday morning, two days after he was charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in Miami, Florida.

 

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Usher, 35, was joined by Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, and his best childhood friend, Ryan Butler, for a serious talk with the singer about his downward spiral.

 

Ryan confirmed he would always support Justin on Twitter on Friday, tweeting: “I’ll always be there for the people I love. Always.”

 

A fan posted separate pictures with the R&B star and the Canadian teenager on the beach near their resort online this morning, while other fans have claimed Justin’s mother Pattie Mallette and his ‘Never Say Never’ producer, Ryan Good, are also among the group.

 

Usher previously revealed he knew the ‘Baby’ hitmaker was “special” as soon as he met him.

 

He said: “The day I met Justin was special. I saw that he had a raw talent and he was cute, girls would like him. I thought OK, if this is properly nourished it could become huge. But I didn’t know how huge.

 

“At that time, there was a pop phenomenon that was all very Disney and Nickelodeon. But here was a guy who was the antithesis to all that. He had introduced himself to the world online. I knew if we could guide him then we’d have a product that is the Justin you see.”

 

Meanwhile, Justin’s father Jeremy Bieber, who was reportedly with his son when he was arrested, appeared to hit back at his critics by simply tweeting the word “Proud” on Saturday.

 

He later added: “Worry about the log in your eye before judging the spec in mine! I will answer to my maker as will you! Truth always wins! #reallife (sic)”
