Justin Bieber has earned respect from Big Sean, with whom he collaborates on his new single "As Long as You Love Me." But he also scored something else from the rapper: some new bling.
Justin's manager Scooter Braun tells MTV, "Sean has this ring. It was his first ring he ever bought, the first piece of jewelry when he got his record deal. He gave it to Justin."
Scooter explained that the gifting took place while the two appeared on NBC's Today show recently. According to Scooter, Sean told Justin, "I know you said you liked it, and I want to say thank you for involving me in the process and being a part of this. And I want you to have the ring." Scooter said Sean took it off, Justin put it on and "it was a real genuine moment. They're friends."
"As Long as You Love Me" is the new single from Justin's album Believe.
