It might be too late to say sorry.
Floyd Mayweather reportedly went “insane, nuclear” after he learned Justin Bieber unfollowed him on Instagram, according to TMZ. The boxer even supposedly called his former friend a “traitor” because Mayweather was there for Bieber when people were attacking him during his meltdown.
The 23-year-old singer is deciding to create a boundary with Mayweather after going through counseling at the Hillsong Church, TMZ reports. The Church had him reevaluate his friends and try to create some distance between ones that are bad influences.
Mayweather was reportedly not singled out by the Church, but Bieber decided to distance himself because he wanted to “reset boundaries” to get away “from things like Floyd’s obsession with strip clubs.”
Bieber has been friends with Mayweather for at least five years. He’s even walked with Mayweather to the ring before a few of his fights.
Mayweather recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and was asked if Bieber would be by his side for this Saturday’s fight against Conor McGregor. Mayweather said he wasn’t sure and it now sounds like he probably won’t be.
Maybe in time they can still be friends.
