Justin Bieber’s problems continue to get worse. The man whose most heavily invested in the young singer has called for an intervention for the troubled teen star. According to a Jan. 29th story by the Independent, Lucian Grainge, has made a very public plea to the star.

The head of Universal has invested millions of dollars building Justin Bieber into a global phenomena. Now, Lucian Grainge is watching his investment heading towards a cliff. It is no secret that Justin Bieber’s legal problems have been spread across every major media outlet, and each incident does irreparable harm to his image and marketability.

According to sources, the music mogul expressed concern about the pop star at the Universal Music Group Grammys Aftershow Party.

I’m very concerned about him. I’ve been concerned about him for many months...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."

He continued to express support for the Canadian sensation, but he acknowledged that Justin Bieber has issues that need to be addressed. Interestingly, this concern echos statements made my numerous media personalities.

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."

This development occurred shortly before Justin Bieber scored a major legal victory. His attorney was able to successfully reduce the charges he faced to a single charge of resisting arrest without violence.
