Justin Bieber fired part of his security team for expressing concerns over his behavior, according to a Radar Online report on Jan. 18. A source tells the website the 19-year-old superstar fired a bodyguard and his team after he tried to step in and address the star’s troubling behavior.

Beiber’s former bodyguard, Dustin Folkes, was reportedly responsible for Bieber’s safety and well-being while on tour and at his home in Calabasas. But according to the report, Folkes was fired by the star’s management team for getting too involved in Bieber’s affairs.

“Dustin got into an argument with Justin’s manager Scooter about trying to help with Justin’s behavior,” an insider revealed to the website.

“Dustin and his company were let go from Justin’s security detail for trying to intervene.”

The source added that the recent drug bust in Bieber’s home is evidence that the new security detail is more “lax” and is allowing Bieber to have too much control.

Meanwhile, authorities are still investigating Bieber after his pal Lil Za was arrested at his home on Tuesday for possession of drugs, which the Sheriff’s Dept. said in a news conference they believe to be Ecstasy in the pure form of Molly. Xanax was also reportedly found.
