Caught in the act? Justin, 18, was pictured on Jan. 2, smoking what appears to be marijuana one day after a paparazzo, who died in a car crash, claimed the pop star was smoking pot while driving.
Justin Bieber, 18, was photographed holding what TMZ is calling a “roll-up” as he parties with a few friends in a hotel room in Newport Beach, California on Jan. 2. The release of the photos comes three days after a paparazzo, who made a call to his freelancing photo agency and claimed the Biebs was smoking pot while driving, was killed while trying to photograph Justin.
The photos were allegedly taken on Jan. 2, one day after 29-year-old Chris Guerra was hit by an oncoming vehicle after taking pictures of Justin’s white Ferrari, according to TMZ. However, Justin was not behind the wheel of the Ferrari when Chris was killed. Justin’s friend Lil’ Twist was allegedly behind the wheel and was stopped by police.
Sources as the Newport Beach party told TMZ that Lil’ Twist was at the party, where Justin is seen smoking what appears to be marijuana. In the photos, Justin does not appear to still be upset by the death of Chris Guerra — he is seen laughing as his friends drink beer. (Click here to see the pics!)
Lil’ Twist and his brother were allegedly rolling all the suspicious cigarettes and passing them around, resulting in “a lot of pot smoke,” claims TMZ in their story.
