Justin Bieber is making sure everyone knows whose side he’s on as he prepares for the eagerly anticipated Logan Paul and KSI rematch.
We can hear it now – the distant cry of ‘Let’s go, champ.’
The Sorry singer, who previously urged his pal Logan to ‘rip KSI’s head off’ in a particularly violent comment, shared a snap on his Instagram Stories of the two YouTube stars, filling it with boxing gifs.
As if his allegiance wasn’t clear enough, he shared a snap of Logan with a championship belt sticker, and phrases like ‘champ’ and ‘it’s going down’ surrounding him.
Let’s see if the Biebs love is set to pay off for him.
Justin, who is confirmed to be attending the match at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, has previously thrown his support behind the 24-year-old, predicting that he’ll knock out his opponent KSI – real name Olajide ‘JJ’ Olatunji.
However, Logan also warned his friends and family to stay well away from the singer.
‘We’re trying to get as [many] of our influencer friends into the fight as possible but apparently there’s like a ticket situation,’ he explained on his podcast Impaulsive.
‘There’s going to be some big celebrities coming, I think Bieber is coming. I’m gonna place him next to my mother and father.’
He went on to warn his pals: ‘And by the way, if anyone in my family and friends section asks Bieber for a picture, I am kicking you the f*** out. Just leave the kid alone.
‘I just want to promise him sanctity and safety and entertainment.’
Sounds reasonable enough.
However, JJ has a rather different attitude to Biebs following his support for Logan, with the YouTube star recently branding him an ‘idiot’.
During his interview for Behind the Gloves, KSI said: ‘Bieber is an idiot for backing Logan Paul, I don’t know why he would want to do that.
‘If he is going to be at the fight I’ll make sure to lock eyes with him so he can see his boy get knocked out. I’ll be sure to laugh at him as well.’
