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.

Yeah blame it on the black kid. Justin obviously WANTS to hang with Twist, nobody is making him. If he were hanging with Charlie Sheen you wouldn't say a God damn thing but "rock on Justin!"

Justin is a punk. He has no respect for adults. He is difficult to work with when doing specials. He speeds on the highway and blames the paps. He was a smart mouth at his last reward show. He needs to fade into the sunset.

"Self-destruction"? "At least TMZ isn't turning a blind eye"? Wow. Some people must not realize that marijuana has become legal in a few states, and more are sure to follow suit. Where was he when these photos were taken? Oh, in CA? Where Marijuana is legal? Isn't he over the age of 18? I see nothing wrong here....There is no difference between a 21 year old guy drinking and an over-18 guy smoking a little weed. Absolutely nothing. If you think marijuana is bad, then you ought to be pushing for alcohol prohibition as well, because that is far worse in my opinion. The kid is growing up and marijuana is becoming as normal as beer to my generation and younger. How many older generations felt that drinking a beer before 21 was some sort of "right of passage"? Probably quite a few. This is no different. Certain religious people and older folks don't want to accept it but the times are changing. Do some research on countries and regions where marijuana use has been decriminalized. Not to mention the medical benefits of cannabis. There is reason that the US government has applied for multiple patents on cannabis. Before you drop your hammer of judgement, I'd suggest doing some real research on the topic.

Really??? I was waiting all weekend for you guys to blame that guy for Justin's actions. That really sad and it exactly why so many young celebs crash and burn. Sites like this blaming others for their actions. I don't see a gun to his head. And in the same breath u guys say people need to stop enabling celebs and here u are blaming that guy do Justin's actions. I don't even see him in the pic.

The next Lief Garrett. His star is already starting to dim. In a few years he'll be broke and living with what few friends he has.
