Australian comedian Jim Jefferies reveals his HUMILIATING experience in front of Justin Bieber
Australian comedian Jim Jefferies has revealed an excruciating encounter he had with a teenage Justin Bieber.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, the 45-year-old funnyman explained he first met the pop superstar 13 years ago and asked him if he could say hello to his then 12-year-old niece on FaceTime.
But he was left red-faced when his niece declared during the call that she ‘hates Justin now’ and liked One Direction instead.

‘When Bieber was about 16, I was on the George Lopez show. I’d just got to America; it was about 13 years ago,’ he began.
‘I was sitting there with his mum, who’s the same age as me. I thought, “I should go out with this woman, she’s s**t out a cash machine.”
‘So I’m sitting there with Bieber’s mum, and I’ve never done this before, but I rang up my niece – she was about 12 at the time.

‘I said, “Look, man, I have a niece in Australia. It’s quite early in the morning there [but] if you could speak to her on FaceTime I’d be the greatest uncle ever.”
‘And he was so nice. He was like, “Anything for a Belieber.” ‘So I rang up my niece and I say, “How are you? It’s your favourite uncle, Jim.”
‘I said, “Who’s your favourite pop star? Don’t you like Justin Bieber?” And she goes, “I hate him now. I like One Direction!”
‘In front of the Biebs! I just awkwardly went, “Well, he wanted to talk to you,” and hung up.’
It comes after Justin was forced to postpone his remaining U.S. shows from his world tour as he continues recovering from a rare syndrome which has caused temporary facial paralysis
It comes after Justin was forced to postpone his remaining U.S. shows from his Justice World Tour as he continues recovering from a rare syndrome which has caused temporary facial paralysis.
The Baby hitmaker last month announced the postponement of several dates due to his struggles with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
In a video posted on social media, he showed his right eye was unable to blink and the right side of his face did not move as he said: ‘Hey, everyone. Justin here. I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on.
‘Obviously as you can probably see with my face.
‘I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerves in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.’
Justin later updated posted a sad update on his Instagram Story, writing: ‘Been getting progressively harder to eat which has been extremely frustrating, please pray for me.’
