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.

I agree with the first comment here. Second, this dude needs to stop pointing fingers as well as you TMZ and take responsibility for his stupid actions. What the heck is it with young stupid hollywood? No common sense or class.

Please, don't warn him. Let him go off the rails. Drugs are the quickest way to go off the rails. Please don't do anything to encourage JB to avoid that path. Thank you.

Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Leann Rimes, Kristen Stewart, Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton, Rita Ora/Kardashian, Coco/IceT, Petraeus women)

My latest book, "I Steal Wives: A Serial Adulterer Reveals the REAL Reasons More and More 'Happily Married' Women are Cheating," is a highly controversial look at this EXPLOSIVE topic! And the real reasons aren't the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in some psychologist's SECOND-HAND textbook answers in a self-help book. No, this is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN from the FIRST-HAND, insider perspective of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives of over 25 men (and a few women), who cheated on a wife, and was cheated on by both of his ex-wives! It's currently trending in the top 1% of book sales at Amazon!

This book will offend you, because it brings up stuff no one wants to talk about. This book is HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL! Hate the author and his moral failings all you want (and many people do!) but the powerful insights of "I Steal Wives" are pure gold, never before read in relationship books! It's not the same crap we've been reading for decades in relationship books.

Let's face it, WE'RE ALL LOOKING FOR FRESH NEW ANSWERS TO RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS! But all the supposed experts are reading out of the same textbooks, and no one has new insights from new perspectives....UNTIL NOW!! "I Steal Wives" is a salacious, highly self-deprecating, often funny, and penetratingly insightful look into the core reasons for female infidelity, which research shows now rivals, or EXCEEDS, that of male infidelity!

"I Steal Wives" is the relationship version of "How to Secure Your House....as Told by a Professional Burglar!" It's the first relationship book written in GUY LANGUAGE and GUY STORIES, so that GUYS WILL ACTUALLY WANT TO READ IT, and so couples can read it together! It will forever change how you do relationships (and raise a daughter) and understand women....especially if you are one!

You can check it out at Amazon! You’ll really like it! FINALLY, fresh and solid relationship advice!

Anyone think he is doing all this because he knows Selena is giving up that booty to a real man? How soon till we see a full on Brittany meltdown from this wannabe tough guy?

His team need to step up and take charge to get Twist out of his life, Justin's 18 he's old enough to know what he's doing but he's clearly being influenced, the past 3 years the kid has surrounded himself with good people and has kept himself on the right track, it would be a shame to see one person come into his life and screw it all up for him.

According to TMZ, the 'evil little black rapper' is 'corrupting' innocent, perfect and white little Bieber boy.

How do we know Bieber wasn't a pothead LONG before he ever even met Twist?
