This will no doubt be terrible, sad news for asshole-type boxers with a scrappy lil’ popstar rooting for them in the corner. If Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Justin Bieber can’t keep it solid as a rock, what hope do the rest of them have?
TMZ is reporting that Justin Bieber has cut his former favorite professional punch-thrower out of his life. And guess who was whispering the suggestion to do so in Bieber’s impressionable ear? That would be his current alleged life managers at his church, Hillsong.
Justin and Hillsong’s muscled-up leader, Pastor Carl Lentz, have been getting very close lately. As such, Justin has been receiving all kinds of advice from his friends at Hillsong, like allegedly encouraging him to quit his Purpose World Tour. Sources tell TMZ that Hillsong’s latest attempt at keeping their precious Justin all to themselves has been “counseling” Justin on some of his more unsavory friendships, and to strongly suggest he “pull back” from the bad influences.
One of those bad influences was apparently Floyd Mayweather Jr. Sources claim that Justin’s friends at Hillsong didn’t single Floyd out; Justin decided that on his own. Apparently the friendship deal-breaker was Floyd’s “obsession” with strip clubs. Oh what a pious little lamb he is.
Justin doesn’t want to cut Floyd out of his life completely; he just doesn’t want to be friends, and unfollowed Floyd on social media. TMZ’s sources claim that Floyd went crazy when he found out. Justin is apparently “dead to him.” Floyd also considers Justin to be a “traitor,” because Floyd stuck by Justin during his messiest times.
Last week, TMZ asked Justin Bieber about Floyd’s upcoming fight with Conor McGregor. He wasn’t exactly Floyd’s biggest cheerleader.
I’m sure Pastor Carl and the rest of Justin’s pals at Hillsong are great and all, but Floyd really was a kindred spirit. The bond you build with a 40-year-old man who arranges fist-fights between unstable messes and frauds up his taxes really is one of those once-in-a-lifetime friendships.
Here’s Bieber leaving a private church event at The Peppermint Club in Los Angeles earlier this month. Church at a nightclub? No wonder Bieber is suddenly so into church.
