Justin Bieber is in bed with rappers Lil Twist and Lil Za.
Despite reports claiming the “Baby” star has “issues” with the rappers, on Saturday (Oct.26) Lil Za posted an Instagram showing all three pals in bed together while Za looks on fondly.
Back in September, Radar Online claimed Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, wanted Lil Twist and Lil Za to move out of the Canadian’s Calabasas, CA, mansion after a reportedly long house sitting period.
The website added Braun thinks the pair are a “bad influence” on Justin and had even arranged alternative accommodation for them, but with “no specific ultimatum date” for their exit.
Both Lil Twist and Lil Za have previously been accused of hosting raucous parties at Bieber’s pad while he performs on his Believe tour, which reportedly angered nearby residents distressed over alleged loud music playing, late partying, and alleged overnight parking by guests.
Shortly after Radar’s claim, TMZ reported Bieber had thrown Lil Za and Lil Twist out of his house after jewelry allegedly went missing on the duo’s “watch.”
The website added it was unknown exactly what was taken, or by whom, and noted the teen singer didn’t necessarily think his friends took the goods.
Two hours after TMZ went to press (Sept. 24), Justin posted an Instagram of a black screen with a caption that read: “Don’t listen to em I still got all my jewelry.”
However, TMZ insisted the theft happened and stated on their website that Bieber was “lying to cover for his ‘friends.'”
Previously described by Justin as his “best friend” in an April interview with Teen Vogue, Twist has been accused of introducing the singer to drugs. The rapper has been involved in multiple traffic violations or accidents while driving Bieber’s cars.
In August, Lil Twist was accused of battery by a woman during a party being held at Justin’s house while the singer was away on tour. The Young Money star denied the claims through his rep.
Lil Za has also been accused of drug-taking, and abusive behavior to a Calabasas resident in an alleged speeding incident while driving one of Bieber’s cars in an altercation that was captured on film.
Whether Za’s Instagram of the trio in bed together is a reflection of their current relationship and a clear indication of previous media invention, or his attempt to mend fences with Bieber remains to be seen.
