Justin Bieber and his entourage were detained at the Brisbane, Australia airport while customs agents looked for drugs ... and TMZ has learned they allegedly found weed on one of Justin's pals.
The Australian Federal Police tell us ... a 19-year-old man was detained back on Nov. 24 ... but was released after getting a stern warning for using "inappropriate language." He reportedly swore at the officers.
Sources connected with the incident tell us Justin was the one with the potty mouth.
The AFP says a security check turned up an unknown amount of pot on a 23-year-old man in Justin's entourage. The suspect was released, but got a ticket for allegedly importing drugs.
Sources close to Justin tell us the suspect had a disposable vaporizer -- basically an electronic device to smoke marijuana -- which had residue in it.
We're told an attorney for the suspect appeared in court today, and paid the fine.
It's been one helluva tour -- as we first told you ... one of JB's bodyguards was arrested last month in Hawaii after allegedly attacking a photographer on the beach -- and was also caught on video attacking a photog in Sydney.
Maybe Bieber is more rock 'n' roll than we thought.

... Cops Say
12/5/2013 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The woman who claims she was raped by Florida State QB Jameis Winston says they were boozing at a local bar before the incident ... and she had 5 or 6 shots, this according to police documents.
According to a search warrant affidavit, the woman told cops she "began to feel the effects of the drinks" and was then whisked to a nearby apartment, where she was raped.
According to the affidavit, “[the accuser] then remembers entering an apartment on the ground floor. She remembers the male taking off her clothes then engaging in penile/vaginal sex with her as she told him to stop and tried to fight him off.”
Cops said in the affidavit ... at some point during the incident, another black male with dreadlocks came into the room and told the man to stop ... at which point he took the accuser into a nearby bathroom where he "completed the act."
Cops say the woman contacted police within an hour of the alleged rape -- but claim the accuser was so drunk at the time, she was "unable to tell a detective where the incident occurred."
She had only "hazy recollections of details after that," the cops said.
It wasn't until roughly 5 weeks after the incident that the woman first identified Winston as her attacker.

TMZ spoke with Kordell's lawyer, Shiel Edlin, who tells us the divorce has been finalized ... ending the 2-and-a-half year marriage between the former NFL player and the Bravo reality star.
Kordell's lawyer says Stewart is "very disappointed" the marriage fell apart, because he expected to be married for life."
But the former Pittsburgh Steelers star is clearly still FUMING after Porsha began reigniting rumors that Kordell is gay. Kordell adamantly denied the allegations.
"For reasons we cannot understand, [Porsha] displayed a reckless abandonment of anything close to the truth over the last eight months," Kordell's lawyer tells us.
"We are also hopeful that Porsha will stop villifying Kordell at every opportunity."
The two were married in 2011. They have no children together.

12/5/2013 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan won't put her ass on just any piece of furniture ... that's why she packed up her crappy old sofa and banished it from her swanky NYC apartment.
A moving truck and crew pulled up to Lilo's chi-chi SoHo crib yesterday -- which led to speculation she was moving out -- but sources tell us they were simply there to load up the old couch and deliver a brand spankin' new one.
Sources say Lindsay's been living in the $16,000 a month pad while shooting her docu-series for Oprah Winfrey's cable network -- so the apartment doubles as a set for the show.
We're told ... Lindsay's locked into a 2-year lease on the place ... so she might as well get comfortable.

... Gets Arrested, Fired
12/5/2013 6:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "burger joint" -- TMZ has learned, a Wendy's employee was arrested last month in Georgia ... after allegedly making a cheeseburger with one crazy off-the-menu ingredient ... marijuana.
According to the Lovejoy Police Department, 32-year-old Amy Seiber was busted during her shift on November 1 ... after a customer called 911, complaining she had found a half-smoked blunt in her cheeseburger.
The customer met with police at the Wendy's location where she ordered the burger, and cops claim Seiber immediately admitted the blunt was hers.
According to police, Seiber said she had been smoking pot on the job and conveniently "misplaced" the blunt inside the customer's burger ... right on top of the pickle.
The blunt was taken as evidence and Seiber was arrested for possession of marijuana ... oh yeah, she was also promptly fired.
We spoke to the lucky customer, who tells us she experienced food poisoning-type symptoms after the incident and had to be hospitalized.
So far, she says Wendy's has offered to help pay for her medical bills ... and has even generously thrown in a $50 gift certificate. Like she'll ever eat at Wendy's ever again.
A rep for Wendy's tells TMZ, "Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps ... We are deeply sorry that this incident occurred.” The rep says the franchisee is working out a favorable solution with the customer, including paying her medical bills.

Me and My Hubby Want Kids
... and I Want Some POWER!!
12/5/2013 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sam Champion is leaving ABC's "Good Morning America" partly because he and his hubby want to start a family and partly because of his thirst to become a honcho ... ABC sources tell TMZ.
Our sources ... who are extremely familiar with the situation ... say Sam has been chronically unhappy at GMA. We're told he wanted his own show -- badly-- but ABC execs weren't biting.
So, Sam jumped to the Weather Channel (which is co-owned by NBC), where he will anchor the network's new flagship morning show and also serve as managing editor.
Our sources say Sam wanted to be the one who replaced Larry King at CNN and he was shocked when he wasn't tapped. As one source put it, "Sam loves power, and becoming managing editor (of the Weather Channel) gives him that."
Oh, by the way, our NBC sources say Al Roker -- NOT a Sam fan -- is "pissed" his Weather Channel show will be Sam's lead-in.
Another reason Sam bailed from GMA is that he and his husband want kids and the hubby refuses to leave Florida (GMA is in NYC).
We're told Sam will be spending about half his time in Miami so the kids will know his face in person and not just on the tube. As for moolah, we're told its a lateral move. Our sources say Sam was pulling in around $2.5 mil at GMA and he'll be making around the same at the Weather Channel.
$2.5 mil for weather ... now THAT'S making it rain!!!

12/5/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The crash site where Paul Walker and Roger Rodas died has become so cluttered with fan memorabilia ... the city has cleared the area and will begin cracking down on looky-loos who come to visit ... TMZ has learned.
Reps for the city of Santa Clarita tell us ... the flowers, candles, posters, and other tributes -- not to mention all the trash -- that have been left at the crash site by fans paying their respects had piled up in the street and created a road hazard.
We're told city crews have not thrown anything away ... but they've moved all of the items off the street and onto the sidewalk ... and they've invited the Walker and Rodas families to take away anything they'd like to keep.
Also ... we've learned that starting today the city will be enforcing NO parking on the street near the scene of the crash ... handing out tickets to violators.
I'm Being Scammed By Warhol
12/5/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The artist who says she’s Andy Warhol’s cousin and claims Kanye West hired her to paint Kim Kardashian ... may be trying to have her own 15 minutes of fame … because Kim says she has no clue who the woman is.
Monica Warhol – a Tucson artist whose style is similar to Andy’s – tells TMZ Kanye’s people contacted her two weeks ago … and gave her a pic of Kim and asked her to create a screen painting of the photo.
Warhol says she’s already created 9 different Kim paintings ... and says her pieces generally sell for $20K to $70K apiece.
But sources close to Kim tell TMZ … she’s never heard of the woman … and thinks the whole thing may be a scam or a way for Warhol to get publicity – her 15 minutes of fame.
When we called Warhol back, she gave us an explanation for why she's being rebuffed by Kim & Kanye ... she thinks the painting may have been intended as a surprise gift ... and now that the surprise has been ruined ... K&K don't want it.
Warhol says if this deal falls through, she’ll put the artwork up for sale to anyone who wants to buy it.
Hotel to Mayor:
Screw You, We're Keeping Bieb's Art
12/5/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Australian hotel tagged by Justin Bieber is going to war against the city's mayor ... defying hizzoner's order to remove it, and going so far as to PROTECT it from being cleaned up.
TMZ broke the story ... Justin covered a wall at the QT Gold Coast with some colorful graffiti monsters -- angering Mayor Tom Tate, who then sent a videotaped message to the "pop princess" demanding he clean it up.
Justin hasn't responded to the mayor, but now hotel officials have -- telling us they're so proud of the Bieb's handiwork ... they're covering it with a black tarp so no one can remove it.
Officially, we're told the cover-up is there to shield the graffiti from rain and sun ... but clearly it also sends a message to roving do-gooders: HANDS OFF BIEBER'S MASTERPIECE.
