Justin Bieber visits 7-year-old with leukemia, distracts from marijuana gossip




There's been a lot of jibber-jabber about Justin Bieber being photographed smoking a fat ol' blunt on camera lately, but we're going to focus on some positive news today: The Biebs took some time out to meet with a 7-year-old fan fighting leukemia. What a perfect way to distract the haters peddling bad news! Wait, we're going to look on the plus side today.

Millie Flamm, who has been struggling with the condition for three years, had tickets to Saturday's concert in Salt Lake City, but suffered a relapse two weeks ago and had to sell her tickets. Friends and family tooks to social media to get Bieber to meet with her, and despite potential scheduling conflicts and Millie being put on oxygen and running a fever, you know what happened? The stars aligned and he met with her family in private on Saturday.

"All of a sudden it pulled through and we were able to do a really intimate little meeting with just her and us and Justin and it was incredible and he was so sweet to her," Millie's mother Amanda Flamm told the Deseret News. "He walked in and her whole face just lit up, and she turned around and hugged her dad, and then he ran over and came next to her and gave her a big hug."

Biebs sang her favorite song, Baby, and gave her his guitar pick and a kiss on the cheek. She promptly told her mom, "You are never going to wash my face again." The 18-year-old later posted a photo of the meeting on Instagram, writing "Look at this bundle of joy.. I love her."

Amanda then made even The Juice* get something in our eye by saying the visit "has re-energized all of us. We are ready to keep going and fight harder with all this backing and this fun thing that has happened today, and keep going and keep fighting."

So yeah, Bieber may smoke a lot of weed with Lil Twist. Imagine that, a teenager who tokes. What will the Grand Inquisitor say about that breaking news? Meanwhile, happy 7-year-old forgetting she has cancer for a day. We know which way our scales are tipping at the moment.
