Justin Bieber’s longtime friendship with Usher sparked rumours the two would reunite at the halftime show. But Bieber turned down his old pal.
Usher asked Justin Bieber to take part in his Super Bowl halftime show — but the Baby singer “wasn’t feeling it,” sources told Page Six.
Before Monday’s event, Bieber’s longtime friendship with Usher sparked social media rumours that the two would team up onstage in front of the 65,000-strong crowd and a global audience of millions.
Instead, a slightly worn-out looking Bieber, 29, and his wife Hailey, 27, watched his one-time mentor’s show from the comfort of Fanatics co-owner Michael Rubin’s $US2.5 million suite at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where they were seen nodding along to the performance.
A music industry source told us: “There’s no bad blood between Usher and Justin. Justin just wasn’t up for it — he just wasn’t feeling it.”
Usher did his best to try to persuade Bieber, sources said, and wanted to create a moment that paid tribute to their history together.
