Baby scandal almost made me quit music, says Bieber

16 June 2012

Washington, June 16 (ANI): Justin Bieber has admitted that Mariah Yeater's paternity suit in 2011 almost made him quit the music business.

However, the teenage heartthrob, who is currently dating Selena Gomez, revealed that his mentor Usher encouraged him to continue and motivated him to toughen up.'At the beginning of it all I was in Florida, away from my friends and family and I was pretty sad," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Fabulous magazine.

''I got to the point where I thought, 'I don't want to do this. I just want to be normal'. It was difficult because I'd never gone through anything like that.''ustin confessed that it was his mentor Usher Raymond, who encouraged him to toughen up," he said.

''Usher was like, 'Prepare to have this for the rest of your career because it's not going to stop'.

''He's gone through some stuff and most artists go through their fair share of bull. That was just my first time.''

''I feel sorry for her more than anything. Everything that hurts you makes you stronger in the end. You've got to learn from the bad things that happen," he added. (ANI)
