Lil Twist

Bad Influence

On Bieber

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

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.

This whole thing was probably set up by Usher and his team. Word has it Puffy and LA Reid exposed Usher to a lot of things when Usher first came on the scene. Justin B. has this squeaky clean image so Lil Twist or Lil Flip (whatever his name is) was hired to show J. B. a few things. This is going to turn out bad! That rapper boy took Justin's car and was driving it around like drug dealers drive around a druggie's car when the druggie can't pay for the stuff they used. One paparazzi has already died. What next?

What if JB was a bad influence on Lil Twist? Then TMZ will never post that story.

Everyone says they don't care but there are 563 comments so far, so I think they do. Besides, I think it makes him look more likable to a bigger audience. I mean he's getting older and 50% of ppl here (or more) smoke weed so, get over it. Let him be, if u dnt like him then dnt buy his music.

Wow last time I checked JB was a grown azz man. So don't go blaming this dude from him unless he puts a gun to JB head and makes him smoke!

Vicarious one    

This dork Bieber, is obviously in the closet. Hell, he looks like a 14 year old George Michael wanna be. Interesting the references to Leif Garrett, sooner or later Bieber will end up the same way. It might be next week, next month or next year, hell it could be 2morrow for all we know but he will end up wrapping his ride around a tree. To much money, too young, with no brain power upstairs. Hopefully he only kills himself.

the truth    

why can't Bieber be responsible for his own actions???? Why does it have to be Lil Twist fault??? Doesn't he have his own mind? Is the real reason that Lil Twist is an African American male?? Yall need to stop this stuff and make JB responsible for JB. Yes he too makes poor decisions

He is an 18 year old teenager!! Lot of people smoke pot, but not lots of people tour constantly, make hit records, and make 50 million dollars a year. I think Justin's handlers are more concerned over the cash in flow than Justin himself..

Whatever. JB wants to act like a grown ass man. Nobody can influence you if you aren't already open to the thought.

I'm sorry, but why is everyone so certain that it isn't JUSTIN who is a bad influence on the people around him? When did he become some hapless victim?
