Britney Spears has apparently been advising Justin Bieber about staying on the straight and narrow.
The pop princess has had her fair share of troubles, including shaving her head and temporarily losing custody of her two sons after her life spiralled out of control a few years ago, but is now back on track.
And Justin's people thought she would be perfect to give the Boyfriend singer a pep talk following his recent controversies, reported The Sun.
A source said: "Justin's team asked her to talk some sense into him.
"Britney warned him of the slippery slope that can easily lead to rehab - or even death - among young pop stars."
