On Thursday night, the "Sorry" singer showed up to support the launch of Karla Welch's new collection of Hanes x karla T-shirts, which are inspired by the original custom tee she made for Bieber's Believe tour, in Los Angeles, California. Bieber looked casual and trendy in a pair of ripped denim, pink sneakers, a black backwards baseball cap and a white T-shirt with stars printed on the sleeves. He also sported some large eyeglasses and a bit of stubble.
Later on in the evening, the 23-year-old pop star was joined by a friend for dinner at Catch, a West Hollywood hotspot a block away from Maxfield, where Welch's event took place. By this time, Bieber had switched into black sneakers, and appeared to be wearing the same cap as his pal, who was dressed in ripped denim, white shoes and an orange, long-sleeved shirt.
The GRAMMY winner appears to be good friends with Smith and Pastor Carl Lentz. On July 23, Smith, 38, shared a photo on Instagram of himself, Bieber and Lentz on the golf course together and referred to the trio as "brothers."
Earlier this week -- the same day he was spotted with Smith at The City Church -- Bieber also posted a message to his fans in regard to him canceling the 12 remaining concerts on his tour. "Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable," he wrote in part. "So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be. This message is just an opportunity for you to know my heart, I'm not expecting anyone to understand, but I do want people to have an opportunity to know where I am coming from!"
