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.

Don't blame it on someone else..... he makes his own choices and has to live with them. Since I can't really tell what he is smoking... he is old enough to smoke but the underage drinking bothers me more.

Fantastic!! Come on Beebs...just give crack a try. I'd love to see this guy crash and burn, and there's no surer path than falling into the party lifestyle of ghetto dwelling gangsta wanabes. Honestly...do you think that rapper joke is content with just getting buzzed on alcohol and smoking pot? NO...WAY. This girl trapped in a boy's body is going to find himself in no man's land. His 13 year old girl fan base isn't going to dig his new tatted up bad boy party persona, and he's too much of a fairly fudge packer (let's get real) to find a fan base in the world this failed rapper 'Lil Loser" runs in.

Careful Beebs...it can slip away in this scenario.

A sure fire way for Scooter to be shown the door?


Is to start running J.B.'s friends down.


Means Scooter's losing his grip.


No longer relevant or important to J.B.


Go quietly, dude -


You had a good run.


J.B. and Twist will do a tour -


Makes tons of CD's, music, money.


I like these two together.


A lot.


Resent the effort to throw Twist under the bus.

Maybe LiL Twist is Justin's "Handler"..for crying out loud it's so obvious now that they marked him with that lame ass owl tattoo.

Justin amd LiL Twist are both of age so being influenced is pro choice so let them take responsibility for their own actions whatever they might be, i say puff puff pass that blunt and don't be messing up rotation yo.

Yes ,Justin has been hanging with the wrong crowd , was I the only one who could see that ? Why hadn´t his mom or his manager done anything ? Now that it´s too late they´ve finally realized this Liltwist guy is a bad influence on him ? Why hadn´t they tried to keep Justin in touch with his former friends ? Those were definitely good role models for him ! It´s sad , so sad to see Justin becoming a junkie , learning to curse like this ghetto trash , getting so far from the clean nice guy he had been . This is not the Justin I looked up to ! I´ve defended him through it all , but since he has decided to take this doomed path , I can no longer support him .

It's got nothing to do with the weed exactly.
I do however agree JB has been inundated with bad apples, it's not just Lil.
I'm sure these people are using JB for his stature and money, if JB had none of that. These people would be no where to be found. Thay would say JB WHO?

This offen happens people are such good friends only for a purpose though.

what makes you think Bieber wasn't doing these things before? He's now an adult so he can show you. The problem with celebrities as well as todays youth is everyone looks for someone else to blame. Blame the person who chooses to make the decisions bottom line
