Justin Bieber caused a major firestorm when he decided to delete his Instagram account on Aug. 16. However, one person who is supporting the singer’s drastic decision is Kourtney Kardashian, who is proud that the Biebs is doing what he can to take care of himself.
After deactivating his Instagram account, haters came out from everywhere to attack the singer and mock his choice. Fortunately, Justin Bieber, 22, still has plenty of love coming from loyal fans and friends, including Kourtney Kardashian, 37. “Even though they don’t see each other that often, Kourtney and Justin still have a tight friendship. She’s always encouraged Justin to take care of himself first and foremost, and if this means taking a break from Instagram, then she fully supports him,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She knows Justin isn’t trying to punish his fans by deleting his account, he’s just trying to do what he thinks is best for his peace of mind. She’s let Justin know that she totally has his back.” How sweet!
Even though Justin continues to receive heat for quitting Instagram, he seems to be doing just fine with his new gal pal Sofia Richie, 17. In fact, the “Cold Water” singer has been totally doting on the model! As we told you, he’s been “giving her security guards, sending decoy cars for her, basically he’s been her knight in shining armor.” How romantic!
So what is it about this young woman that Justin is so crazy about? For starters, “She‘s funny and always down for no drama and a good time”, a source told us EXCLUSIVELY. But most importantly, the Biebs totally trusts her and knows that she’s not trying to take advantage of him!
