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.

TMZ seriously, BAD INFLUENCE? How much did you get paid for that headline? justin bieber is of legal age, what, he can't make decisions for himself? You all must have conclusive evidence that lil twist is the first person he has been around that smoked pot? TMZ seriously get a freaking grip.

I think these racist comments are hilarious because one thing I've learned is that most wealthy people aren't racist and one thing wealthy people despise more than black men is poor white trash. These racists rants are from a bunch of inbred bottom bottom feeders that live miserable lives so it makes them feel better to spout off ignorant nonsense. Move back to the South you hillbillies!

How do you know if the kid isn't a bad influence on him? Is the Biebster bored already with his $$$ and celebrity? Just because one can afford anything in life, it doesn't mean they will be satisfied.

The "Celebrity" status of Hollywood is simply a mirage and shortcut to making loads of money. Making loads of money will leave you just as unfulfilled as using drugs will. There is no truth in them and Bieber will have to learn thislife lesson for himself.

TMZ scored a touchdown with the Biebs smoking weed picture though. It brings more hits to their website, which is their #1 goal. They don't care about any celebrity, they just want the "story" and the website traffic.

This is hilarious, not one person in the picture of JB with the blunt looks like Lil Twist! It's obvious JB's camp has decided to throw Lil Twist under the bus in hopes that it will keep JB from losing fans and endorsements.
