A source told HollywoodLife.com, "Justin likes Kanye's music, but he's worried he's done too many controversial things and it would hurt his image. Between the sex scandals, political gaffes and interrupting Taylor Swift (at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards), Kanye is known as a genius but a big risk to associate with!"
But a baffled Bieber has shot down the claims and insists he has no problems with West, having previously given the hip-hop star the thumbs up for his work on the remix of the singer's track Runaway Love.
Taking to Twitter.com to clear up the reports, the Baby singer writes, "Some rumors...i just dont know where they come from... Me and @kanyewest (sic) are good. This right here is just FALSE."
