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 ...

In 20 years, his "mentor", like all boxers, will be sounding like a retard, drooling all over himself, and all the leeches will be on stand-by figuring out how to divide up all his money.

One difference between these two: Beiber isn't scared of Manny Pacquio.

It is just a PR move for the Mayweather team to make him look like a clean con. Poor mentor for Bieber you will learn violence from this guy. mayweather lacks moral fibre. Bad choice from Biebers camp.

I watched this fight and was stunned to see Bieber there in Mayweather's posse during the walk out to the ring, typically Floyd's biggest moment. It was awkward to say the least. It didn't seem planned, more like maybe they ran into each other and Floyd took advantage of the opportunity to have another celebrity in his corner. The kid seemed starstruck and overwhelmed, like a little boy at a major league game. He was actually pretty sweet and wide-eyed. I think he was thrilled to walk out during a major boxing event. Anyone would be, but it was still weird. It seemed contrived and solicitous on Floyd's end.
