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.

If he's smoking & Drinking once and a while thats just normal Teenage stuff.. I'm willing to bet alot of you smoked weed or drank at least once when you were a teen. but if it's a daily thing and he is partyin hard every day, with or with or with out lil Twist ( lil twist isn't forcing him to hang out with him or smoke or drink) You can't blame anyone but JB for doing this I dont care what anyone say's no one forces someone to do drugs or drink may be like come on man try it, but it's that person and that person's alone fault for doing that stuff.But I really hope it's not another sad story like a Lindsay Lohan or Amanda Bynes :/ I dont wish that path in life on anyone even if they do act rude or ignorant and have it coming thro karma, no one deserves to go thro pain and suffering.

Grass was really influential in a lot of our changes, especially with Paul and i,. And because we were writing different material, we were playing differently. We were expanding in all ares of our lives, opening up to a lot of different attitudes. Rubber Soul was the pot album, and Revolver the acid. Pot and LSD were the two other major influences. Instead of getting totally out of it and falling over, as we would have done on Scotch, we’d end up talking very seriously and having a good time till three in the morning.

He acts and dresses like a gay little wigger. Like someone else said, he looks more and more like Vanilla Ice every day.

Ew.

Another in a long line of "too much too soon". The fact that Selena left him is a pretty strong sign he's in trouble with maybe worse things(?) His crazy driving seems like more than smoking pot. That video where he was holding up cars beeping and yelling at him while chatting with paps on either side and saying "this is fun, huh?" was creepy.

Oh c'mon, stop it! Is it not possible that Justin Beiber actually has a mind of his own?! He chooses to do those things because he wants to. I have plenty of friends who smoke, drink, slack off in college etc etc but I choose not to join in on their reckless behavior because its my choice.

justin is a big boy and he chooses who he wants around him.
they say that the friends you choose says a lot about who you are.
when i see or hear a " bad influence " it sound like justin is a little boy.
justin is in charge of his own life and why is this becoming such a big todo???
is lindsay getting to be boring?
