Adidas

Standing By Bieber

He's Still Wearing Our Kicks

Justin Bieber's DUI arrest has NOT cost him the support of a major sponsor ... TMZ has learned Adidas is standing by him -- for now.

The athletic shoe company tells TMZ, "Nothing is changing in our relationship with Mr. Bieber at this time" ... which sounds like they're leaving that door open.

Bieber signed a big endorsement deal with Adidas back in 2012 -- he and Selena Gomez are the celebrity faces for the company's NEO line.

The Biebs earned about $58 million last year ... a good chunk of that from deals he made to hawk sneakers, headphones, nail polish, makeup, a prepaid credit card and the acne cream, Proactiv -- which paid him about $3 mil until that deal ended.

None of those other companies -- as far as we can tell -- have made any move to ax Bieber.

And judging by that mugshot ... maybe he shoulda stuck with Proactiv.

I was a pharmacology major and it appears to me what Justin likely has isn't typical acne. When someone abuses codeine etc. they can develop what's called an opioid rash, basically the skin flushes out the drug with it causes extreme itching and burst capillaries. Typical acne cream won't help this. Very sad.

Biebs will fly home in a private jet, or, prolly too a private location, get some good grub and sleep and eventually face a meeting with all the peeps who make money from him...yawn....................

Beiber has no consideration to other people, people's property or authorities. Instead of dropping $75K in strip clubs, he should be forced to do community service in gang ridden poor areas like Detroit, Chicago, etc. Perhaps a long trip to Haiti with Sean Penn would be a wake up call for him where his $75K could be of use. Sean Penn would be a good mentor for him because Sean would adjust Beiber's attitude within the first hour of being together with a punch in his big mouth and kick in the ass.

Really TMZ? You're gonna make a comment that he has acne? I like your coverage except when you take swipes at people. Stop being a ****ing bully. Your mean commentary to stories detracts from any reporting integrity you have, or may have.

I will boycott all Adidas products because Beiber is NOT a role model for any teen.
