Justin Bieber Smoking Marijuana Again, Heartbroken Biebs Going Out of Control?
SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS FROM FASHION&STYLE
Justin Bieber was spotted smoking marijuana yet again, just a month after photos of him smoking pot emerged and ripped apart many fans’ hearts.
Is the heartbroken singer, who recently went through a painful split from Selena Gomez, going out of control?
More photos of the 18-year-old Canadian heartthrob smoking weed are now circulated among media outlets, according to TMZ.
Thursday, new photos of Bieber and his pal Lil Za passing a “weed-filled stogie back and forth” outside of an L.A. home were taken, the site reports.
The next day, Bieber’s Ferrari was pulled over by police because Biebs’ pal Lil Za behind the wheels didn’t have a license while driving.
It was just last month when Bieber apologized to his fans after he was snapped smoking marijuana with his friend Lil Twist at a hotel party in Newport Beach.
His team, however, "isn't happy about those photos. They are grilling security about who could have taken them," a source told US Weekly.
The photos were allegedly taken on January 2, a day after a paparazzi was killed while crossing the road after attempting to take a photo of Bieber’s now notorious Ferrari.
After the shocking news surfaced online, some Bieber fans have resorted to drastic measures in an effort to get the singer to "stop doing drugs." Internet trolls on 4chan launched "Operation Cut For Bieber" as a hoax campaign to prank serious Bieber fans in encouraging them to self-harm. However, some fans are suspected to have actually self-harmed for the cause.
"Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because Bieber was smoking weed," read a message on 4chan, an online message board.
4chan pranksters went on to post false photos of sliced arms and wrists using fake Twitter accounts under the hashtag: #CuttingforBieber. They claimed they would cut their wrists as an effort to stop Bieber from smoking weed.
4chan members are unclear as to how well their planned worked. It appears as if some fans actually did support the "campaign" but it is difficult to know which photos are authentic or not.
"You stop using drugs and we'll stop cutting. You make this world meaningless and we've lost hope," a fake Twitter account read.
Bieber was allegedly stressed over his rocky relationship with his then girlfriend Selena Gomez.
"He smokes weed all day, from the time he gets up, and orders everybody around. He's surrounded by hangers-on who say 'yes' to anything he wants. There's no supervision," a source said of the “Baby” singer in January, according to PerezHitlon.
The teen pop star tried his best to sustain his clean image, but his attempt apparently failed.
"For me, it's just like, I like to be in control of myself. I mean, I've had a beer, like, before. . . But I never get out of control," Bieber told GQ Magazine in its June 2012 issue.
"I mean, I keep my guard up a lot, because you know, you can't trust anyone in this business. That's what's sad. You can't trust anybody. I learned the hard way."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
