“He was passionate. I saw the potential of success. It was really all left to him…he has the talent, he has the know-how and he also has an incredible mentor.”
The insider tells Dish that Usher loves being a mentor and he’ll continue to do whatever he can to support Bieber.
“Does it make Usher a little insecure that his protégé is more successful right now? Sure. That’s natural. So Usher does have a sense of urgency to keep himself relevant,” the source dished.
“He really enjoyed mentoring on The Voice and hopes he gets a chance to go back and continue with similar gigs. Opportunities are thrown at Bieber every day and Usher just wants to make sure he solidifies himself as a fixture in the industry.”
