A grown-ass man who allegedly POSED online as Justin Bieber has been arrested in Canada after cops say he threatened a 12-year-old girl into performing sex acts over the Internet.

Canadian authorities say 34-year-old Lee Moir has been charged with luring, manufacturing child pornography and extortion after allegedly posing as Bieber on Facebook ... and duping the girl into a video chat. 

Cops say Moir threatened to harm the girl's family if she didn't engage in cyber-sexual activity.  The girl reportedly complied.

The incident was reportedly investigated by U.S. law enforcement, which referred the matter over to Canada when they realized Moir was living in Toronto.

Moir was eventually busted by Canadian undercover cops who posed as a 14-year-old girl online. Officials say Moir engaged the officer in sexual conversations and requested a meeting.

Cops swooped in and arrested Moir when he arrived to the meeting location.

What pedophiles do is disgusting and isn't excusable but, I do have some sympathy for them because a lot of sickos who live in our society were abused as kids (mentally or sexually) and that's why they turn out like this

He'll be out in 6 months. I live in Canada and I use to really love this country but our judicial system is so gutless, the judges don't have any balls. Don't take my word just google how much jail time criminals receive, its a joke.

Not to blame the victim BUT if this girl degraded herself because an online stranger claiming to be Justin Bieber told her to, then there is a serious lapse in parenting skills.

"A grown-ass man" -- those are the first words of your news story? I honestly didn't think the writing and editing at TMZ could get any worse.

All parents of pre teen and even teens should monitor their child on the computer ! Their are sick people in this world. The same thing regarding that sicko at Penn state. He was showering with 10 year old boys. Parents of a 10 year old should know where their child is !
