Will Smith mentoring Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber gets weekly mentoring from Hollywood star Will Smith, it has been revealed.
The Canadian singer, 19, said he didn't care about reports of his wild behaviour.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will first helped the Baby singer during a tough period in his life when he returned from a world tour in May.
The actor drove to the singer's house and pulled him out of bed for a three-hour talk.
Justin's manager Scooter Braun, 32, told the publication that Justin was elated after Will popped over.
"He (Justin) said, 'Man, that makes me feel so loved. I woke up, and there's Will Smith, one of, if not the, biggest movie stars on the planet. He took time out of his day for me,'" Scooter said.
Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Justin and Will have weekly calls to go over any potential issues, emotional or otherwise.
There has been speculation that the Men In Black actor could be a scientologist, but the publication says that has never been discussed.
Will is also said to advise that Justin should be allowed to make his own mistakes, telling Scooter: "He's a young man who's growing up, and that's what makes him interesting and relatable. Otherwise, he'd be some kind of weird robot."
Justin told the magazine: "I know who I am and what I'm doing in my life and what I've accomplished and continue to accomplish as a performer, as a writer, as an artist, as a person, as a human being. I'm happy with the man I'm becoming."
The Hollywood Reporter said that the chart star also receives daily scripture from a pastor and that Eminem's manager told him that the rapper would be happy to talk to the singer.
