"I actually am so out of the loop on any of that, to be honest," the 27-year-old songstress told Billboard. "People are constantly like, 'Is Justin OK?' I've not really noticed any of that. I feel like Justin's a guy who's working hard every day, and I think the media can sometimes be a little brutal with stuff and over-exaggerate things."
The "Call Me Maybe" singer added, "But I stand by him. I support him. I think he's a good guy, and he's doing the best he can."
Then again, this isn't the first time Jepsen has defended her mentor and fellow Canadian.
"All I see is an incredibly hard worker and a man who's just passionate about what he does," Jepsen told E! News last month. "Just putting it on himself to take on a lot at once."
Of course, it sounds like if the Biebs ever needs a hand, he could probably just call Jepsen. Maybe.
