Justin Bieber alleged drug photos show that the teenage star started his year off with all smiles. The 18-year-old teenage idol was caught holding what appears to be a blunt of marijuana on Jan. 2. Sources at TMZ are allegedly responsible for releasing the photos on Jan. 4.
The photos were taken at a party inside a Newport Beach hotel room and they show Bieber living it up despite a paparazzo being killed while trying to take photos of Bieber's Ferrari the previous day.
After the photos were leaked online Bieber gave the following statement to fans via Twitter:
"Everyday growing and learning. Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up”, the teen idol posted on Twitter Jan. 5. “I see all of u. I hear all of u. I never want to let any of you down. I love u.
The "Boyfriend" singer then went on to say:
“I'm ready. We are ready. See u all tomorrow and everyday after that. Back on tour tomorrow. Ready to see u all smile. Time to do what I'm supposed to be doing. Performing.”
What's really shocking is the fact that Bieber would allow photos of him holding a blunt to be taken at a party, knowing the potential backlash he could face. Anyhow, at least he started the New Year off on a high note.
