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.

really! really?    

It sounds harsh but I care a lot less about Lil's influence over Bieber than I do about Bieber's influence over the thousands of 12-yr old girls who follow him like their shadow.

No issue with the smoking of any kind, but don't blame Lil Twist. JB's a grown ass man and should take responsibility for his actions. You can't be bad ass and a role model at the same time. Time to grow a pair, Beaver.

That is not a blunt. If it is, it was made by a machine.
Looks like a thin cigarette.

He's young and will make plenty of mistakes

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??

I don't agree L'il Twist is a bad influence.


Not at all.


Last week saw the two at a Calabasas fruit and vegetable stand.


"Twist" was lecturing J.B.


On the importance of colorful vegetables.


J.B. was taking notes.


Fondling a radish.


In clear admiration.


Both are down with vegetables.


Need to do a PBS special.

The photos with the weed are fakes. Really has anyone else been in a Newport Beach hotel? They don't have sketchy frat boy furniture like that. TMZ should be sued for this garbage.
