Eleven patrol cars arrived to raid Justin Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif. mansion on Jan. 14, with a search warrant to raid his property. Was Selena Gomez standing by his side as it all went down?
On Jan. 14, all hell broke loose at Justin Bieber‘s Calabasas, Calif. home when the police arrived with a search warrant to look for any evidence connecting Justin to the Jan. 9 egging of his neighbor’s house. Since Justin recently reunited with his long-time love Selena Gomez, you’d think she’d be there standing faithfully by his side. Well, HollywoodLife.com has your EXCLUSIVE details on whether or not Selena was at the scene!
Selena Gomez Not Present During Justin Bieber Egg-Raid
Things seemed to be going so well for Justin at the start of the new year. He reconciled with Selena, and even managed to avoid scandal for a week or so before Jan. 9, when he allegedly egged his neighbor’s house.
Five days later, everything fell apart. The police were at Justin’s house — the 5000 block of Prado del Grandioso inside the gated community Oaks of Calabasas — to search for any evidence that could implicate Justin as the one who egged his neighbor’s house, which reportedly resulted in $20,000 worth of damage. This would be a felony, FYI.
You’d think with so much going on, Selena might want to be by her on-again boyfriend’s side — but an insider told HollywoodLife.com that she was nowhere to be found! Still, this doesn’t mean that Selena is over it.
“Even after today’s madness, Selena still is listening to her heart and not her head and friends,” the insider said. “She wants to be with Justin and will be dealing with his immaturity and actions for the forseeable future. She just doesn’t get it.”
What do you think about that, Jelena fans?
Justin’s Friend Lil’ Za Arrested For Drug Possession
Looks like Justin will really need Selena’s support. In addition to the potential felony charge, the police found cocaine in Justin’s house and arrested his friend Lil’ Za for possession. Exactly how much cocaine Lil’ Za had on him has not yet been confirmed, but criminal defense attorney James E. Silverstein confirmed exclusively to HollywoodLife.com that anything illegal could legally be confiscated from Justin’s property due to the warrant.
“As long as the search warrant is valid, and the deputies are lawfully on his property, any illegal items or contraband they find during the search can be seized from the premises,” Silverstein said. “Any such item(s) can then subject Bieber to criminal prosecution, even if unrelated to the initial reasons for search.”
What do you think, Jelena fans? Should she have stayed by his side during the raid? Are you nervous that Justin might go to jail?
