Even though Justin Bieber‘s mom, Pattie Malette, and his close friends are concerned about his well-being, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the Believe crooner knows just what to say to “buy himself some time” and avoid getting help for his reckless behavior.
Justin has proved just how easy it is to get your own way and call all the shots when you’re a major superstar. Unfortunately, in addition to being a talented performer, the bad boy has been just as successful at smooth-talking his loved ones.
“Justin doesn’t believe he has a problem, but he knows people around him think he does. So to shut them up he has been saying he will do something to make them happy and get himself some help,” a source tellsHollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But many people are thinking and realizing that Justin is just saying things to buy himself time. He’s all talk.”
Even Justin’s mentors like Usher andScooter Braun have had a tough time convincing the 19-year-old pop star to get professional help.
“People close to him will bring up to him that he needs help, he plays along and then he goes back and does his own thing,” the insider explains. “He is very manipulative because at the end of the day the people in his life know he is their meal ticket and will ultimately let him do what he wants to do. It’s a vicious cycle that is only going to get worse before it gets any better.”
Hopefully, Justin will start surrounding himself with more true friends who have his best interests at heart!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Justin’s ex Selena Gomez is hoping he will make an effort to connect with her on the most romantic day of the year.
“Selena is no longer making any attempts to reach out to Justin. She’s hoping Justin will at least make an attempt to connect with her on Valentine’s Day and see how she’s doing. If she doesn’t hear from him then there is absolutely no way she is going to make any effort to wish him a happy birthday,” a friend of Selena’s revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “A Valentine’s Day diss will just be the last straw.”
