An administration official confirms to TODAY.com that the White House did indeed make a call to Justin Bieber's camp in an effort to make good on a promise President Obama made to a young Bieber fan.

While in New York on May 5, Obama met a 14-year-old Bieber fan whose father was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks. He mentioned to her that he "knows Justin," and could arrange for her to meet him.

The White House contacted Bieber about the meeting, and according to TMZ, Bieber said he'd meet the girl when he's back in the U.S. and returns to the East Coast. 

Bieber's camp didn't return messages about when the meeting might take place.
