Troubled popstar Justin Bieber would probably like to put the past week behind him – the singer’s record label boss has revealed the star needs an “intervention” to stop Biebs from spiralling further out of control - following his DUI arrest last week.
Universal’s Lucian Grainge says that both he and the pop sensation’s manager, Scooter Braun, are concerned about the 19-year-old recent antics.
“I’m very concerned about him. I’ve been concerned about him for many months. And Scooter, who I work with very closely, is supposed to be here but is with him at the moment,” he explained at the Universal Music Group’s Grammys aftershow party, reports Huffington Post.

Adding: “This has nothing to do with the business or records or releases – this is to do with the young man. He needs help. He needs an intervention.
"We are going to give all the support as a company to take as much pressure off him so he can look forward. Hopefully, we will all get through to him. But what people don’t understand, he’s a 19-year-old.”
The star was arrested in Miami last week and was booked for DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest last Thursday, January 23, in Miami at 4:30am.

Grainge continued: “You cannot just pick someone up and force them to do something if they are not ready.
“All of us around him need to take all the responsibility, all the pressure off him and give him support so he can address the issues he has – and he does have issues. And I’d like it to be dealt with.”
