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.

So the media is already laying down the ground work for when JB f**** up they can blame that no good rapper. JB is 19 yrs old he can make his own choices and if he is following behind lil twist then he is a weak a** wannabe.

He's 18 years old, i think he should be held liable for his own actions. Stop treating him like he's still a kid. No one has the right to tell him who to hangout with. He knows right from wrong. He'll learn from his own mistakes just like we all did.

When you are 18 and as successful as Justin Bieber, I imagine it is very hard to find many "real friends" to hang out with.
Being very rich and very successful at a very young age does have its downside.

So TMZ thinks it's ok to have a vendetta against someone because a paparazzi got killed. Tough ****. When you try to make money out of someone else s embarrassment they you should all suffer the same fate as Diana. Get real jobs and quit relying on others misery for your prophets. GET A REAL JOB.

Yeah...I forgot that Justin Bieber can't think for himself and he is influenced by the horrible black guy that does his thinking for him..smh Justin is doing what he wants to do and no one is making him do it. If he wanted to go down a clean and narrow path,he would. He would have followed another person around and been influenced by someone else. Stop blaming others for what JUSTIN wants to do. He is not a 13 year old boy geesh!
