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.

Come on really? It's just pot! Leave him alone. It doesn't lead to anything but the munchies! lol You haters are ridiculous. He's old enough to make his own decisions and I'm sure LiL Twist didn't hold a gun to his head and say "Smoke this." Stop giving pot smokers a bad name it's 2013 get with it. xo420

Like they said, influence..... Justin Beiber can easily be manipulated into doing things he shouldn't, especially when he's on it. I smoke too but I know my extent.

Honesty, I don't smoke pot. But hes an adult (teenager) now,so of course hes going to do it. Most, kids his age have either done it or tired it. The reason why people make such a big deal about it,is because hes a celebrity.

I'm not a big fan of Justin Bieber but honestly, seeing him grow up and be shown to the bull**** casual smokers and potheads alike are thrown into is giving me a bit of respect for him. As for LiL twist? Who cares? Let them be friends, all they are doing is chiefin at a hotel and with friends, i know at least 90% of you have had a day like the photo shown on the couch at least once...chillin with some brews and good kush...come on....not like they are out raping bitches and comiting mass homocides....theyre just gettin faded.

Really? So Justin never did anything wrong on his own because he is so innocent and pure. Bad move TMZ because what you're doing is defending Justin and passing the blame unto someone else specifically an African American. Not a good look.

Bieber is a punk and rappers are the scourge of society. Both of these fools need to be put down.

I live in NB and we have great police here. If Twist was high at the time he was pulled over in JB's car, he would have been arrested (unless he has a prescription). STOP trying to vindicate this dead photographer at the expense of JB's reputation. You are clearly on a smear campaign and its getting old!
