Justin Bieber drank liquor and smoked weed while onstage with the rap group Rae Sremmurd during a concert in New Zealand. This latest scandal comes just a few days after an Australian model named Bailey Scarlett claimed that she was drugged at an Australian recording studio where Bieber was at. The 21-year-old singer made the bread and butter of the tabloid press last week following the model’s allegations and now this latest incident could further damage the artist’s image. TMZ revealed two incriminating videos which seem to show Justin using an illicit substance on stage.
But that’s not all. After smoking what appears to be pot, Justin Bieber was seen holding a bottle of Hennessy. Once in hand, the superstar did not hesitate a single second and started to drink from the bottle.
As reported by Music Times, earlier this year the controversial star posted a heartfelt video regarding his “arrogant” actions over the past year. He told fans that he was a changed man and said his new outlook on life was partly due to his friendship with pastor Carl Lentz.
“There’s no one just looks up to more than Carl. He’s had a huge influence on him,” a source said.”They spoke at length about how he can get his life and career back on track and both agreed that getting rid of alcohol and drugs was the natural first step. Justin has made promises like this before but this time we all genuinely believe he is clean. His manager Scooter Braun was very clear that, until Justin sorted himself out, his music comeback was on hold.”
Although the Canadian singer’s recent performance with Rae Sremmurd was more than electrifying, it’s been awhile since the public has seen Justin like this after he tried to clean up his act.
During Justin Bieber’s roast, which took place earlier this year, he apologized for his bad boy ways and said that he was disappointed in himself.
“There was no preparing me for this life. I was thrown into this at 12-years-old and I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. There’s been moments I’ve been proud of, then a lot of moments that I’m disappointed in myself for — things that I’ve done that really don’t define who I am. I’m a kindhearted person who loves people and through it all, I lost my best qualities. For that I’m sorry.”
Although Justin can be seen in the video drinking a big swig from a liquor bottle before pouring it on the floor, “the Biebs” reportedly regrets his antics at the crazy concert in New Zealand and insists he did it on a dare.
Justin Bieber’s pal, Riff Raff, spoke up in his defense, and called the incident a “one off” mistake. According to the New Zealand Herald, the rapper believes Justin is still committed to cleaning up his act.
