Justin Bieber

Scooter Braun manages some of the world's biggest pop talents, including Ariana Grande.

However, the manager and talent scout is most famous for managing Justin Bieber. 

The industry pro has spoken out about some of Justin's darkest days, when back in 2014 the singer faced jail time and a negative relationship with the press.

'It was worse than people realised,' Scooter told The Wall Street Journal Magazine.

'I failed him day after day. We were living in hell because he was in such a dark place.'

'I have inconveniences, and other people have problems,' he said

'Mine feel important, but they're not. They're not life or death.'

'Justin's stuff got to a point where it was a problem.'

It's clear from his managers words that the superstar was struggling greatly, but Scooter stuck by his pop prodigy. 

'Some of the biggest people in the industry, people invested in Justin's career, told me, 'It's over. Focus on something else. That kid is done,'' he told the mag.

'I made a promise to him when he was 13 that I would never give up on him.'

'I plan on keeping that promise.'

From Scooter's account that the singer has had some dark days, but his manager clearly had his back through it. 

Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity victim of a cyber hack.

A group of unknown hackers took control of the singer's Instagram account, and used it to post nude, explicit images of Justin Bieber. 

The hackers took a paparazzi photo of Bieber, taken a number of months ago, and posted it in a three-image collage on Selena's page to her 125 million followers.

It sat above a caption which seemed to poke fun at the Biebs genitalia: 'Look at this n***a lil shrimpy.'

The caption also included links to the hacker's troll accounts, with a claim that they 'run da scene.'(sic)

The hackers also changed the name of Selena's account to 'islah gomez,' according to TMZ.

Selena disabled her Instagram account after the hack after regaining control of the account. 

It has since been reinstated with the correct user name and nudes removed. 

Selena is not the fist celebrity to be the target of a hacker group on Instagram. A number of weeks ago fell victim to a similar hackAriana Grande fell victim to a similar hack. 

Justin Bieber shocked fans when he cancelled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour. 

The star was about to embark on the last leg of the tour, and had already performed the concert 150 times.

The tour was cancelled without much of an excuse, only citing unforseen circumstances.

Now, the 23-year-old singer has taken to his own Instagram account to reach out to fans with an explanation.

'I'm grateful for the tours but most of all I am grateful i get to go through this life WITH YOU.!' he wrote.

'Learning and growing hasn't always been easy but knowing I im not alone has kept me going. I have let my insecurities get the best of me at times.'

'I let my broken relationships dictate the way I acted toward people and the way I treated them! I let bitterness, jealously and fear run my life.'

'I am extremely blessed to have people in the past few years help me build my character back up reminding me of who I am and who I want to be.'

Referencing the tour, Justin expressed to fans: 'Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.'

'I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable.'

'So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.'

Justin's heartfelt letter comes just a week after he was involved in a collision with a paparazzi member. 

Justin Bieber was involved in a car accident this morning, after the 23-year-old hit a member of the paparazzi with his car. 

The singer accidentally hit the photographer with his car after attending a church service in Los Angeles. 

The police have described the incident as accidental. 

Justin exited his vehicle after the accident to assist and comfort the injured party. 

Emergency services were called and Justin remained at the scene until they arrived. 

The photographer was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are described as non-life threatening.

The news comes after Justin cancelled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour. 

The rest of the tour was cancelled due to unforseencircumstances.

'Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,' reads a statement.

If you were lucky enough to see Justin Bieber in the flesh in the RDS last month, count your blessings.

The 23-year-old singer has cancelled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour.

He has already performed over 150 times on the massive international tour, but has cancelled the final 14 concert dates.

The rest of the tour has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.

'Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,' reads a statement.

'He thanks his fans for the incredible experience of the Purpose World Tour over last 18 months.

'He is grateful and honoured to have shared that experience with his cast and crew for over 150 successful shows across 6 continents during this run.'

'However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates.'

Justin Bieber has now joined Lady Gaga and Oasis on a list of artists who are banned from touring in China.

The Canadian popstar, whose questionable behaviour has made as many headlines as his hits, became the subject of scrutiny in recent days when a fan contacted the Beijing Municipal Bereau of Culture asking why her idol hadn't visited the country in recent years.

Responding to the enquiry, the ministry made their stance on the Sorry singer clear, but allowed for a change in stance should future behaviour allow.

"Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer," the bureau told the fan in a statement.

"In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers."

"We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public."

The ministry did not elaborate on what they constitute as 'bad behaviour', but the 23-year-old has had several run-ins with the law, dating back to 2013.

From reckless driving and driving under the influence to vandalism and resisting arrest, the singer's reputation has been marred by a number of incidents of antisocial behaviour.

OK Beliebers, please calm down.

It seems like Justin's fans have not learned from past experiences.

If you take a look back at last year, you probably remember Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie had a little summer romance – and it did not sit well with his fans.

His followers on social media trolled Sofia so much, that JB ended up making his Instagram private, and then after further abuse he deleted the page altogether.

Shortly afterwards, Sofia and Justin went their separate ways, but remained friends and still hang out the odd time together.

Well, his fans can't seem to come to terms with his friendship with the daughter of Lionel Richie, and proved it this week on social media.

Sofia shared a photo on Instagram; living her best life, eating pizza.

Later that day, Justin commented on the picture twice with, "You are gorgeous," and "!!".

And the Belieber fandom did not take it well at all:

Can't we all just be nice?

Justin Bieber is in Ireland to perform on his Purpose World Tour, but that doesn't mean he can't take a bit of time off while he's here. 

The singer didn't hole himself up in a fancy hotel room, oh no. 

Instead, he headed to Dublin's Bushy Park in Terenure to play a few games of basketball with his crew. 

Of course word got around immediately that the Biebs was in town (it is Ireland after all) and crowds gathered to watch the Despacito star play ball. 

Bieber fever was in full swing as crowds ooohed and aaahed at the star. 

They even threw in a few jokey boos as the singer played. 

The singer will be performing in the RDS tonight, kicking off at 7pm.

Heading along?

Take a look here for everything you need to know about the event tonight.

Well, we're jealous!

Three talented Dublin dancers are set to take to the RDS stage tomorrow night with Justin Bieber.

Shane Bosson, Abi Doolan and Leah McNamara were selected from thousands by Justin's team to perform with him during his Dublin gig.

House of Swag Dance Studio posted on Facebook to congratulate their young stars: "These kids work so hard and they deserve this so much. 

"We are the proudest dance teachers in the world right now and absolutely over the moon! Definitely the happiest day of these kids lives," the post said.

"Thank you to Nick Demoura and all the Bieber team for choosing these kids they honestly work so hard.

"Well done to everyone else who auditioned never give up and keep working hard."

The look of delight of the kids' faces just says it all!

If you watched the One Love Manchester concert then you'll know that Justin did an amazing job.

His heartwarming songs and words of goodwill made us fall back in love with him, so it's no wonder that Twitter went a tad crazy when he announced he's releasing new music last night.

JB wrote: "New music. This Friday. Me and @davidguetta."

And of course, everyone lost it:

Already this year, Justin has performed with DJ Khaled on I'm The One, as well as lending his voice to the absolute tune, Despacito.

This is not a drill!
