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.

Doesn't Bieber have parents? Also he is not 21 so he has no business drinking. He should be arrested for underage drinking. He is heading down a bad road.

Next are you going to tell us that marijuana is a gateway drug to heroin? Stop the insanity, TMZ. You know better.

Its never Justin's fault is it. It's not his fault he drives like a crazy fool 100mph down a busy freeway in a metallic bloody car that blinds the crap out of everyone else. It's not his fault he chooses to smoke weed. Let's b honest his team totally trashed that photog and I think tried to smear him. All they needed to say was show us the proof ..I mean who was to say the photos mate was even telling the truth about their convo..but no they trashed his memory in defence. This kinda smacks of the same tactics..smear anyone and everyone just don't talk smack about the biebs. And one last thing miles and Diana ..Diana courted the press when it suited her and also her driver drove like an ass. I think bieber believes his own hype and that's why he will go down eventually anyway

I bet TMZ knew about this way before that random Papp and used that as an entry point for their take down. I wouldn't put it past them. I'm done w anything related to this it's like watching a train wreck that was pre- orchestrated in slow motion, while ppl sit back and laugh at the destruction. Hopefully he will come out better for all the hate this has caused and the witch hunts for this 'proof.' too far.

This is racist, is lil twist was white no one would care. Everybody smokes. No a big deal at all. I'd be more worried about JB if he wasn't smoking and drinking.

Justin is a big boy, and has his parent who should be part of this life. Love to see Justin in jail just once. He will lose lots of his fans.

Wow..U gonna blame the brother? U gonna put out the dog whistle (like the repubs do with Obama) and make this a racial thing? Why not call out blacks who may not be a good influence on other blacks? Or whites on blacks? Or whites on whites for that matter?
JB can make up his own mind and im damn sure that he did not start his pot smoking with lil twist. And im sure that if has done it for a while that even sweet lil selena gomez has rolled a blunt or 2 for him and most likely helped him puff it down..

U people crack me up..
Ooops,did the black man say crack??
