It’s time to hear the ugly truth for Justin Bieber, and it sounds like he’s going to be hearing it from his mentor himself! A source close to Usher told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he’s really embarrassed by his protégé’s recent actions — and doesn’t know if he’ll be able to help.
Selena Gomez may be happy to take Justin Bieber back, but Usher feels like the love he really needs is “tough love” — he’s actually “embarrassed” of the man that Justin has turned into, following his recent legal troubles.
Usher’s Embarrassed By Justin Bieber
Following the video surfacing from March 6 of Justin storming out of his court deposition, it’s no surprise that people are starting to realize he may need to get in shape — and Usher is one of those people.[hl_ndn videoid=”25703908″][hl_ndn videoid=”25700326″]
“Usher feels like the person that Justin has become is a complete embarrassment,” a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Usher is certainly a mentor to Justin but he feels that Justin has gone off the rails and hasn’t listened to his advice. Usher is now taking things tot he point that Justin has to live and learn. Tough love is the remedy he thinks Justin needs.”
Usher, who has supported Justin ever since Scooter Braun discovered him at the age of 13, has other things to worry about and is having a hard time getting through to the “Confident” singer.
Usher ‘Can’t Reason With Justin’
“He can’t really reason with Justin over his actions,” the source added. “He has tried, but overall [he] has his own career to worry about. Usher makes money off of Justin, which is true, but Usher also has enough money that Justin isn’t his main focus either.”
However, Justin needs someone to be focused on helping him! During the deposition, obtained by TMZ, Justin was very disrespectful, actually responding to one question with, “What is this, 60 Minutes?” and later, “Okay, Katie Couric, what’s your question again?”
