Twenty- one-year-old Justin Bieber uploaded a sexy photo of Live! With Kelly And Michael co-host Kelly Ripa on Instagram last Tuesday.
The monochromatic photo showed the 44-year-old former soap opera actress sprawled on a bed and wearing only a white laced bikini.
Capped with the message that seeing Ripa gives him a certain feeling, Bieber added a disclaimer that he meant "no disrespect" to the TV personality as he knew she was happily married.
The TV host has been married to actor Mark Consuelos for 19 years now, and the couple has three kids: 18-year-old Michael, 14-year-old Lola and 12-year-old Joaquin.
Ripa and co-host Michael Strahan discussed the snapshot posted on the photo-sharing site on Wednesday during their morning show.
When Strahan jokingly referred to Ripa as "you sexy mama you", Ripa expressed her serious opinions in the lightest manner possible.
The former blue-haired co-host stated that she adored Bieber and has, in fact, attended the singer's concerts with her daughter.
But Ripa added that Bieber's actions were perhaps a hint that the Canadian born-singer needed help, and that she's concerned.
The TV personality offered to help Bieber as well, and said that all Bieber has to do is give her a call.
The blond co-host also revealed what her husband remarked after seeing the photo.
According to Ripa, Consuelos simply asked "Where did they find that picture?"
The TV host had a hunch that the photo was grabbed from a Hamptons magazine pictorial, according to Mail Online.
On the other hand, Bieber has uploaded another photo following Ripa's hot picture on Instagram. This time, the shot was a shirtless picture of him sitting on the side of a pool.
