SHARON OSBOURNE thinks she can save Justin Bieber!
The ENQUIRER has learned that the rock ’n’ roll matriarch got an S.O.S. call from the Bieb’s manager Scooter Braun, who asked if Sharon could help him handle the troubled singer.
After all, Sharon’s been steering the career of wildman hubby Ozzy for more than 30 years and is certainly an expert at dealing with misbehaving rock stars.
“Scooter is at his wit’s end over Justin,” said a source. “He feels like he’s lost all control and, knowing Sharon’s history with keeping Ozzy in line, he called her.”
Keeping the 20-year-old “Baby” singer out of trouble has become a full-time job. He’s facing possible felony charges in California for allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbor’s mansion and was busted in Miami in late January for resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. Scooter can’t act as Justin’s baby sitter anymore, said the source. “Sharon suggested that Scooter turn over management of Justin to her, at least temporarily.
“She promised that she’d take a hands-on, tough-love approach with Justin, and she’d also utilize her amazing list of contacts in the music business to keep him on top.”
The 61-year-old says she’d get the troubled entertainer into therapy, and then keep him in the studio with the industry’s top producers until he churns out a hit album.
And the former “America’s Got Talent” judge is so sure she can turn Justin around that she’s told his handlers she won’t take a dime in payment until he’s back on the straight and narrow.
“Sharon loves a challenge,” the source added, “and making Justin Bieber hot again is the ultimate one.”
