When Bieber heard that Franklin, who took home the gold for the 100M backstroke, was a mega-Belieber, he tweeted, "heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove."
Naturally she responded, "I just died! Thank you"
A few days later, Jordyn Wieber, tweeted, "Now that we are Olympic champions, can we please meet Justin Bieber?" Justin replied, "You support me, I support you. Congrats. And Ryan Seacrest told me about you, too. Dream big."
Beebs later congratulated Jordyn’s winning U.S. gymnastics team, known as the Fab Five, "Beliebers win gold."
