Justin Bieber Has Spa Day With Floyd Mayweather & It’s The Worst Decision He’s Ever Made
Justin Bieber has made plenty of bad decisions — egging his neighbor's home, telling Toronto mayor Rob Ford a crack joke, being a little jerk during a deposition — but it's one of his friendships that is the absolute worst decision Bieber has ever made. Justin Bieber and Floyd Mayweather had a spa day on Friday and while this might sound like a silly little situation at first, it most definitely is not because — and I'm speaking only for myself here so if you like Floyd Mayweather, go for it, I guess? — Mayweather is horrible and he's done a ton of horrible things. From a wanting to remain acceptable in the eye of the public standpoint, it's a bad idea for Bieber to hang out with him. From a wanting to be in the company of decent people standpoint, it's a bad idea for Bieber to hang out with him. And from a Bieber should want to stay out of trouble standpoint, it's a bad idea of Bieber to hang out with him.
You don't have to get too far into the details of Mayweather's life or go too far back into his history to see that this is a friendship that shouldn't be happening. Only one day before their spa treatments, Mayweather was in the news after he claimed on Facebook that the real reason he and his ex-fiance split was because she had an abortion and posted a photo of her medical records online. He removed the post shortly after. (Not that it matters, but the information shows a sonogram and does not confirm that she actually had an abortion.)
As if this wasn't enough to prove that Mayweather is a sorry excuse for a human being, in 2012 he served only 90 days jail time after, according to ABC News L.A.,
Mayweather pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery charges stemming from an incident two years ago, when he pulled the hair and twisted the arm of Josie Harris, the mother of three of his children. The younger two children watched the abuse while the older child ran out of a back door to fetch a security guard.
The prosecutor in the trial said of the case, "He just continually gets himself into trouble and he is able to get himself out of it as well. Essentially it is because he is who he is and is able to get away with everything." This explains why Mayweather would so feel comfortable posting someone's medical records online without caring about the consequences.
But anyway... Yeah, that's Mayweather. That's the person who Justin Bieber is hanging out with and who he has twice walked into the ring for fights and who, it seems, he will be walking into the ring for a third time on Saturday. This isn't like Bieber's questionable friend Lil Za or partying underage or drinking sizzurp — all of which already make it so strange that his fan base is 13-year-olds. Mayweather is another level of trouble.
It doesn't add up that Bieber, who is always professing his love for his Beliebers, is hanging out with someone that those Beliebers probably don't know exists and who they shouldn't know exists. It's a strange disparity, but yet, there they are getting massages together with Mayweather proudly saying, "We call this the good life. Pedicure. Massage." I'm far from a Bieber fan, but if he wants to have some semblance of a normal adult life, he needs to learn to be accountable for his actions and hanging out with Mayweather will teach him the opposite of that.
