Justin Bieber has had quite the time lately. It seems that his longtime friend, Lil Twist, has been at the root of many of The X Factor star’s most recent troubles. Keep reading to find out the newest details on the relationship between Lil Twist and The Biebs.
Justin Bieber and Lil Twist have been friends for many years, although lately the two seem joined at the hip. Following the break-up between Justin and Selena, it seems that Lil Twist has latched on to Justin to show him how to party his heartbreak away.
Over the New Year holiday, Justin was snapped alongside Lil Twist, who was opening up a bottle of champagne. (Underage drinking, anyone?) He accompanied the photo with a tweet. “#2013 we gettin ready! #WildKidz #YoungRichGang! YMCMB!”
The next day, Justin let Lil Twist borrow his Ferrari. (Maybe he’d had too much champagne the night before?) Lil Twist was pulled over by the cops for speeding, and during the traffic stop, a photog was struck by another vehicle. The photographer passed away on the way to the hospital.
Just a few days later, the fateful blunt pictures surfaced, showing Justin and Lil Twist partying it up. Justin didn’t outrightly admit to smoking weed, but he did however release a statement about the incident. “Everyday growing and learning. Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up. I see all of u. I hear all of u. I never want to let any of you down. I love u. 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.” Many of Lil Twists songs and website pages include lyrics and images of the 19 year old using drugs, along with a host of other inappropriate matters.
His pictures had an even greater influence on his fans, after a disturbing hoax flooded twitter, #CutForBieber. The horrifying trend was started by 4chan as a joke, but some fans took it seriously, cutting themselves in an effort to influence Justin to quit smoking weed.
Do you think that Justin will keep hanging out with Lil Twist? Will he address the #CutForBieber issue? Let us know in the comments!
