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 ...

Hmm, now why would Floyd be associating with that little kid from Canada? I think the DEA and FBI should be hanging around their local hot spots.

People love to hate Justin over something he has no control over, his appearance. Yeah, he looks young. Yeah he's not developed. He is not muscular, doesn't have a jaw line, thick eyebrows and biceps. His voice is feminine and he looks like a punk.

But that is just genetics... And that does not make him gay, or a punk.

I think he is successful, and has done and earned more things than any of us can ever imagine, or achieve in our lifetimes.

Stop the hate. He looks weird, he might not have physical strength but he has heart!

Personal note: I'm 21 and they card me for a pack of cigarettes. Sometimes when I don't have my ID, I ask my brother who is 18 to go buy me a pack... because I know that they won't let me buy one.

But there is nothing I can do about that you know? Blame it on the genetics.

I hope someone has the guts to ask Selena Gomez and the execs at Disney how they feel about Selena's boyfriend hanging out with someone who abuses women. Can't imagine Disney will be happy with this image killer.
