Justin Bieber baptized in New York City church's bathtub following racist scandal (Report)

By Gina DiFalco,

Following the video that surfaced of a then 14-year-old Justin Bieber hurling several racist words in a remix of his song “One Less Lonely Girl,” it’s being reported that the 20-year-old pop star got baptized in a bathtub in New York City.

Pastor Carl Lentz is claiming he worked with Bieber extensively last month, who attended services and underwent rigorous bible study. He started working with him when the scandal first broke.

He told TMZ, Bieber chose to get baptized in a private bathroom in a bathtub in the church because he wanted to keep it out of the media. A friend of Bieber’s performed the religious ritual for him.

According to Page Six, Bieber and his team were scouting churches to have this done as far back as February, and they decided on Hillsong Church in Manhattan.

Bieber confirmed he’s been working with Lentz by tweeting him on Sunday, “Love to my guy @carllentzNYC for the amazing sermon at church this morning. Love you man. I broke down today. Thank u.” :) which he has since deleted.
