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 ...

THE FACT THAT JUSTIN'S MANAGER LET HIM DO AN ENTRACE WITH MAYWEATHERS IS REALLY STUPID. IS OK IF HE SUPPORT MAYWEATHERS BUT REMEMBER THAT MAYWEATHERS IS GOING TO JAIL FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT GOOD FOR HIM AS A SINGER TO BE HANING OUT WITH MAYWEATHERS .. AND BY THE WAY WHAT HIS DOING IN THE FIGHT HE IS NOT 21 RIGHT

disturbing! Justin, you are as white as Canadian snow. Stop dressing like a black man, and pretending to be someone your not. You just come across as laughably ridiculous.

Beiber has that hair pumped up like Bruno Mars when he was busted with Coke. Who gave Justin Coke?

Beibs sure looked an awful lot uncomfortable in there with all that testosterone flowing around. But he is a cool kid and has a brilliant future; this was just one of those "out there" experiences he needed to have.
