Justin Bieber

Meet My Clean-Cut Mentor

... Floyd Mayweather!

5/6/2012 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber with Floyd Mayweather last night was months in the makingJustin Bieber's appearance with Floyd Mayweather last night was months in the making -- and sources close to The Biebs tell TMZ ... Justin feels his new "mentor" is really just "misunderstood."

According to our sources, Mayweather asked Bieber four months ago to join him in Las Vegas for the Miguel Cotto fight ... and Bieber, a huge boxing fan, jumped at the opportunity.

We're told Floyd and Justin became friends after Floyd saw Justin's movie, "Never Say Never," and reached out to his camp. According to our sources, Floyd decided he wanted to mentor Justin and the two developed a relationship. 

Our sources say Mayweather tried to impart his work ethic on Justin, basically telling him he could develop the same level of "greatness" Floyd achieved ... if he worked as hard as Floyd did. 

We're told the two hit it off and Justin tells people he thinks Floyd is just misunderstood ... and that he is a really a "hard-working and clean-cut guy." 

Several judges would disagree, but whatever ...

Beaver Bebber is a joke, a little piss ant boy, who looked out of place with Mayweather's crew. PacMan will crush Mayweather, who looked terrible last night. Back to little beatch Bieber - he is a tool, wimp, and a nerd...forgotten in 14 more minutes

TMZ is getting too cluttered, they need to revamp the site. Too many people are going to other sites like Radar. Comments on TMZ are way down

Was he doing that face on purpose or was he surprised after waking up? Either way, Bieber, it doesn't make you look any cooler. Makes you look like those d-bags who never smile in photos to look tough.

Bieber looks like he is going to audition for a soap opera or something. Who gives these people advice on their 'looks'?

Wow, Bieber looks like an attractive lesbian, what is up with this look? Do teen girls really find this pansy attractive? He looks like such a fem-boy

People shouldn't judge so quickly...even though Floyd isn't perfect , the guy lives a clean life. Doesn't smoke nor drink and is an incredibly hard worker judging by his perfect record

Doesn't Justin Bieber's type of earring look silly on a grown man? [Sort of like Mike Water's earring?]

Why the Hate comments !! Don't blame Justin for being able to get along with someone that doesn't look like him or share his skin color ..Blame yourselves . Justin doesn't feel inferior to anybody.Maybe , it has something to do with him growing up in Canada . He doesn't have the Hang-ups or inferiority complex most American's have.. ..

FLOYD- I THINK JUSTIN SHOULD BE YOUR "MENTOR"....AND YOU SHOULD TAKE A PAGE OUT OF THIS YOUNG MAN'S LIFE..I DON'T SEE HIM BURNING HIS $$ NOR PHOTOGRAPHING WITH IT. YOU'RE A UNEDUCATED BLACK MAN WHO MADE IT BIG BOXING WITH YOUR BOXING TALENT....UNFORTUNATELY, YOU'R DAYS ARE NUMBERED.YOU COULD HAVE AND SHOULD BE A BETTER ROLE MODEL TO YOUR RACE AND YOUNG MEN ALL OVER THE GLOBE! NOW THAT IS POWER AND WOULD BE A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR "WORK ETHIC"

Who in the hell is advising this kid?? LOL He surrounds himself with every thug or thug poser and hauls them around in his pimp mobiles where he looks like he should be in a car seat instead of behind the wheel. Too funny. When the puberty virus runs through his little fans, he's in for trouble. Maybe Mayweather can train him to be a boxer in the toddler tantrum division.
