Butler, who makes a cameo in Bieber’s 2009 music video “One Time,” reportedly grew up with the 17-year-old singing sensation in Stratford, Ontario.
Butler’s parents told the UK Mail on Sunday newspaper they used to take care of the future “Baby” singer at age 5 when his young mother needed help.
Bieber’s generosity extends beyond his inner-circle. The pop star recently vaulted to the no. 2 spot on a list of “Top 20 Celebs Gone Good for 2011.”
Bieber jumped eight spots on the list from last year for having launched the “Believe Charity Drive,” which benefits music education and children’s cancer.
He was also praised on dosomethinggood.org for raising money for new schools across the globe as part of a campaign with Pencils of Promise.
