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.

Not a Bieber fan. But I think Tmz just said he was to stupid to make his own decisions. lol Did the other guy have a gun to his head and make him smoke? Nope, so stop blaming anyone but Bieber..

You know, Bieber is constantly granting Make a Wish kids their wishes or spending the entire day at children's hospital. Many of those times, he does so very quietly so he doesn't do it for the attention. And despite all the good things this young man does, TMZ only writes about it if it might cast a negative light on this him. Very sad. Of course, half the people commenting are just as bad./ Sad people who are jealous that this kid has accomplished more in a few short years then they will their entire lives. So instead of actually doing something with their lives, they hop online and run down this kid with little to no facts, because it's easier then actually doing something with their own life.

Justin will be getting into great trouble or worse and the other one will go free because of who and what he is. It is a stupid world.

It disgusts me that the black kid is being blamed for the white kids choices. Beiber is making his own decisions. Stop blaming the black kid for the white kids decisions.
