Usher’s 35th birthday party celebrations on Monday night was the place to be with guests such as Justin Bieber, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and girlfriend Cassie, Scooter Braun, Jermaine Dupri, Miguel, and Ashley Benson, among the stars in attendance.
From Instagram photos of the merriment guests enjoyed a fun dance-off competition, and at some point a boxing ring-themed cake with a centerpiece snap of Usher as a baby was presented to the veteran star.
A mentor to Bieber — Usher met the then 14-year-old Atlanta in 2008 through his manager Scooter Braun before a record deal with Island Def Jam was signed — pictures of the older singer hugging his protégé at the party reveals the pair’s continuing friendship.
Usher was recently seen in a sneak peek of Bieber’s forthcoming movie-documentary Believe, in which he observed,
“As a 19-year-old, Justin is now becoming his own man.”
