Justin Bieber's manager and good friend, Scooter Braun, has spoken out in the wake of his client's epic DUI drag racing arrest early Thursday morning.
The music mogul reached out to the out-of-control 19-year-old on Twitter, offering him personal support and sharing some life advice for his followers as well:
"@justinbieber love you and I will act in the manner of someone who truly cares," Braun wrote. "That is all I have to say. Thanks for all those concerned."
Later, he added, "Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad."
The talent manager has represented the superstar since the start of his career. Justin Bieber has described Braun as "the father figure in [his] life."
"I trust my mom and dad. I trust Scooter with my career; he's always made sure I'm taken care of," the singer said of their relationship. "That's it."
Can he be the role model Bieber obviously needs after getting arrested for DUI and drag racing with an expired license and Chantel Jeffries by his side?
That remains to be seen.
