Justin Bieber set to appear before a South Florida judge on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license on Valentine’s Day. During the arraignment process, prosecutors will formally file charges against the him, Bieber will then enter an official plea.
Though it is usually expected, Bieber may not have to officially attend the court-date, his defense could submit his plea in writing. Justin’s record label boss Lucien Grainge said needs an ‘intervention’ very soon:
‘I’m very concerned about him. I’ve been concerned about him for many months. And Scooter Braun [Justin’s manager], who I work with very closely and is supposed to be here, but is with him at the moment. The management, us.. This has nothing to do with the business or records or releases, this is to do with the young man. He needs help. He needs an intervention.
We are going to give all the support as a company to take as much pressure off him so he can look forward. Hopefully, we will all get through to him. But what people don’t understand, he’s a 19-year-old. You cannot just pick someone up and force them to do something if they are not ready.
All of us around him need to take all the responsibility, all the pressure off him and give him support so he can address the issues he has, and he does have issues. And I’d like it to be dealt with.”
Aerosmith rockstar Steven Tyler support Justin Bieber’s actions:
‘You know I called Justin this morning. I said: ‘Justin, let me ask you a question: Were you sitting next to a gorgeous woman?’ ‘He said ‘yeah’. I said, “Were you in a yellow ferrari?” He said ‘yeah’. I said, ‘Are you the biggest pop artist in the world right now?’ He said ‘yeah’.’ Tyler then added: ‘I said, ‘That’s cool.”
