Veteran music manager Peter Mensch who has handled the career for Madonna, Metallica and Def Leppard says the writing’s on the wall for Justin Bieber. He also blamed incompetent management.
“He said: ‘His manager Scooter Braun is scared s***less.
‘I don’t know what Bieber’s problem is. His career is over in three years anyway,’
He also told the Sun he does have one trick up his sleeve that he thinks would help the troubled teen.
He said: ‘I’d take Bieber to the woodshed and spank him.’
“It has been a difficult year already for the teen star. He has been dumped by his fellow popstrel and movie actress Selena Gomez , following a string of allegations he had been unfaithful. He has also been late for concert dates, and was taken to hospital in London after collapsing during his run of concerts in the English capital. Perhaps the most noteworthy incident was when he had to be held back by his own minders when he tried to get into a fistfight with photographers. But even more seriously, it is now likely he will be facing criminal charges for allegedly spitting on and threatening his neighbour”
