Toronto mayor defends Bieber

Jan 30 2014, 8:24pm CST | by

Justin Bieber has been defended by Toronto mayor Rob Ford.

The controversial politician - who last year admitted to smoking crack cocaine - has spoken in favor of the 'Confident' singer after he was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in his city yesterday (29.10.14).

Speaking on Canadian radio, he said: "Well, you know what, he's a young guy. At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was. He's 19 years old, guys. Think back to when you were 19."

Police allege Justin was one of six people who got in the limo in the early hours of December 30, and there was an altercation while on the way to a hotel where one passenger hit the driver in the back of the head a number of times before running away. Justin's lawyer claims he is innocent.

An arraignment has been set for February 14, but Justin - a native of Canada - is not required to appear.

The singer is now said to be back in his home territory of Ontario, and last night his father, Jeremy, posted a picture of him sleeping alongside his half-brother, Jaxon.

He captioned it: "Safe and sound. #homesweethome."

Another source says Justin - who is also facing legal problems in Los Angeles and Miami in the US - is now looking forward to a little downtime and refocusing on his career.

The insider told E! news: "He's happy to be with family. He's going to spend some time with them and is doing his best to keep focused and not be distracted. He's learning from the experiences of the past couple of weeks and knows it's time to move on and refocus his attention on work and family."

Love or Loathe: Selena Gomez’s New Bangs

Sep 16 2014 5:33pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

Poor Selena Gomez. She changes the good things and holds onto the bad things. Instead of cutting Justin Bieber out of her life, Sel took a pair of shears to her hair and debuted a new set of flirty fringe. Observe: Instagram Meh, fine I suppose. I’m just so inclined to veto any of SG’s decisions these days–if I can’t trust her to make good decisions about boys, how can we trust her hair judgment? But I do rather like her new bangs, although I suspect she cu ...
