Once upon a time, Floyd Mayweather and Justin Bieber were close friends who would often be seen together hanging out as Bieber accompanied Mayweather to the ring for several of his high profile bouts.
But, apparently, these two are no longer buddies. As a matter of fact, Mayweather and Bieber aren’t even on speaking terms, according to sources close to both parties.
In a story published by TMZ, Bieber has been getting counseling at the Hillsong Church, which advised the pop star to pull back from those who are bad influences. This all led to Bieber unfollowing Mayweather on Instagram as part of him “resetting boundaries” that included keeping away from Mayweather’s obsession with strip clubs.
But once Bieber unfollowed Mayweather, the man who will face Conor McGregor on Aug. 26 went “insane, nuclear.” Sources stated that Mayweather called Bieber a “traitor” because Mayweather had always been by Bieber’s side, even when he faced backlash from the media and fans.
TMZ reports that Bieber won’t be in attendance for Mayweather’s superfight against McGregor and that Mayweather remains “incensed” that his longtime friend has decided to sever ties with him.
