Following Justin Bieber’s arrest for suspicion of DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest without violence on Thursday, the singer’s managerScooter Braun has spoken out.
“@justinbieber love you and I will act in the manner of someone who truly cares,” he wrote on Twitter on Thursday night. “That is all I have to say. Thanks for all those concerned.”
In another Tweet, the 19-year-old’s manager wrote, “Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully good times and bad.”
Adding, “Calling it a night.”
Justin has yet to be active on Twitter since his arrest and release.
Earlier on Thursday following the arrest, a source close to the superstar told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that Justin has been given an ultimatum by Scooter in an act of tough love.
“I was talking to a source inside Justin’s camp — this is new. Scooter Braun and others in that camp have issued Justin an ultimatum,” Billy revealed on Thursday’s Access Hollywood Live. “You’ll hear people today say, ‘Oh, he’s a young guy, he’s making mistakes, he’s a young kid.’ Scooter and his team, they’re all past that. They’re past that point with Justin.”
According to the source, Scooter has reached the end of his rope with the 19-year-old recently troubled singer.
The “As Long As You Love Me” singer was arrested in Miami at 4:09 AM on Thursday after police say he was drag racing on a Miami Beach street in a yellow Lamborghini and failed a sobriety test.
