Lil Twist

Bad Influence

On Bieber

1/6/2013 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_Lil-Twist_instagram2Justin Bieber is under the influence ... of a rapper named Lil Twist -- and the rapper may be leading JB down a dangerous path.

Twist was with Bieber in a Newport Beach hotel room last week, where, we're told, the rapper was happily rolling blunts for J.B. and others.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... JB and Twist have become tight ... and have been smoking together on a number of other occasions.

0106-lil-twist-justin-bieber-instagram-article-2-nye-3You'll recall ... Twist was speeding on the 405 Freeway New Year's Day in Justin's Ferrari when he was pulled over by cops.  A photog was killed trying to snap pics of the traffic stop.  Prior to the accident, Twist and Justin had spent much of the day in a room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills -- where Justin frequently gets a room.

Twist's Twitter profile pic makes it  clear ... he's a fan.

Sources involved in Justin's life who care about him are deeply concerned that Twist has become a powerful negative influence in his life and feel very strongly Justin needs a clean break from the rapper or else bad things are going to happen.

FYI ... Lil Twist is signed by Lil Wayne and close knit with the Cash Money and Young Money crews.

Smoking isn't that big of a deal. He's just being a teen.

TMZ staff - since someone is in the office, or has access to the site and is posting new items at this time... maybe spend a few minutes proofing earlier front page items that are gibberish due to typos. Just a suggestion.

Justin should have been back home in Canada with his real friends and family for the Christmas Holidays, rather than douchin' it up in Hollywood. He needs to come back down to earth and ground himself before he escalates to serious, life destroying drugs, and before someone else gets killed.

Speaking of that car speeding down the hwy. What did the police ticket him for? Speeding? If he had been inhaling all day-btw, if that was a joint that was some good rolling. That boy has experience-did cops bust him for being stoned? Drunk? What. If any of this is true, sounds like Justin's mom needs to find her boy and jerk a knot in him. I saw him in an interview once. Can't remember the exact question but something skin to Justin talking trash to his mom whst would happen. Justin grinned and said something like, she would slap him silly. I didn't feel he was kidding.

The picture is fake because Justin doesn't have the tats and doesn't wear those shoes so there was never any pot smoking.

Bieber Bieber You are going down a wrong road here. Nothing wrong with having friends but friends who are pushing the smoke and booze are a no win if you want a good future. You aren't a rapper. Stop trying to pretend you are.
