Floyd Mayweather Jr. may been smiling and mingling while out on the red carpet for last Sunday’s BET Awards, but the boxer’s heart and thoughts were with his three of his kids who were involved in a serious car crash in L.A.
Fortunately, Justin Bieber was on hand to come to the rescue. TMZ reports that Mayweather received word of the crash while on the red carpet for the BET Awards. The athlete, who was on the phone with Bieber at the time, mentioned how sad he was to be on the red carpet instead of with his children.
From there, the Biebs, who happened to be in an SUV not too far away from the accident, switched into hero mode to arrive on the scene. Upon arriving, the pop star told the cops that he was a friend of Mayweather’s family and wanted to check on the well-being of the kids.
TMZ notes that the crash stemmed from a multi-vehicle collision, involving several cars and a motorcycle. The good news is aside from one of the kids having a busted lips, none of them were seriously injured.
Trying to comfort the kids during this time, Bieber played his new music for them. After he was allowed to put the kids in his SUV, the entertainer drove them to Mayweather and returned to the scene of the accident to inform the cops that the children were with the boxer.
