Justin Bieber NOT “Jealous” Of Cruz Beckham, Despite Report
Justin Bieber is not “jealous” of Cruz Beckham, despite a report ridiculously claiming the superstar is “feeling threatened.” Gossip Cop can bust the silly story.
It says in the new edition of Life & Style, “When Scooter Braun discovered Justin Bieber singing on YouTube at age 12 and signed on as his manager, one of his first moves was getting Usher to mentor him. So now that Scooter has signed Cruz Beckham, the youngest son of David and Victoria, he’s hoping the Biebs will pay it forward and take the 11-year-old under his wing. But Justin’s not having it.”
“Justin’s dragging his feet because he worries Cruz is going to steal his thunder,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. “He’s jealous of his manager’s new client.” And, according to the magazine, “He has reason to be,” in part because Cruz’s cover of Bieber’s song “Home To Mama” has “over one million views on Instagram.”
The supposed source goes on to tout that Cruz has an “amazing voice and phenomenal dance moves,” with the outlet noting, “That isn’t music to Justin’s ears.” Adds the alleged tipster, “Justin wants to keep his pop-star crown. The last thing he needs is a super-talented rival.”
This article, however, is not only inaccurate, but also missing some key facts. First off, there is no reason for Bieber to feel “threatened” considering he and the young Beckham are targeting two different audiences. Many of the singer’s fans have grown up with him, and he is not trying to appeal to 11-year-olds.
Regardless, though, Bieber has been nothing but supportive of the up-and-comer. In fact, earlier this month, he retweeted Cruz’s charity single, writing, “Love seeing my little guy raising money for the kids. Congrats Cruz. Nice one.” And in November, Bieber also shared the “Home To Mama” cover on Twitter, saying, “Young Cruz! Great job buddy.”
Obviously, Bieber would not have done that if he was so “jealous.” The Life & Style claims here are laughably false. Of course, this is the same outlet that ran a whole cover story earlier this year claiming Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with Bieber’s baby. Perhaps the tabloid should get off the Bieber beat.
