Justin Bieber is receiving a significant amount of backlash after photos surfaced of him allegedly smoking marijuana. Following the publication of the photos, Bieber’s team is said to be incredibly upset by the leaking and plans to crack down on his security team.
A source tells Us Weekly that Bieber’s team "isn't happy about those photos. They are grilling security about who could have taken them."
The controversial photos, first published by TMZ on Friday, show Bieber holding what appears to be a joint. The timing of the photos is ironic as photog Chris Guerra is said to have been stalking the “Beauty and the Beat” singer for a photograph as rumors surfaced that he was smoking pot. Guerra died trying to snap a picture of Bieber’s Ferrari after being hit by a car in California. The 18-year-old was not in the vehicle at the time.
While the young singer has not directly addressed rumors of his marijuana use, he did sent out cryptic tweets over the weekend sending out a semi-apology to his fan base.
“i see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u. #beliebers,” he tweeted just hours after the photos went viral.
According to TMZ, those close to Bieber are blaming 19-year-old Lil Twist for leading the “Boyfriend” singer down the wrong path and introducing him to marijuana.
