Intervention is a pretty strong word, but it sounds like that's exactly what Justin Bieber needs at this stage in the game!
Both Usher and Scooter Braun have flown to Panama to meet with the troubled pop star, and a handful of fans have been posting pictures on Instagram of the two, along with photos of themselves with Biebs.
Justin's childhood friend Ryan Butler is also there, so between his mentor, manager and longtime BFF, hopefully someone can talk some sense into the pop star. Bieber was arrested for driving under the influence last Thursday when Miami Beach police busted him for speeding on a residential street just after 4am, and he was also hit with charges of resisting arrest and driving on an expired license. Bieber admitted to police that he had been drinking, smoking pot and taking prescription meds, and after that Braun and Usher reportedly tried to put him on a private plane back to Los Angeles to talk about seeking treatment, but he resisted and instead flew to Panama with his entourage. Think they'll actually be able to get him to a rehab facility?
A new report in The Sun alleges that Bieber is spending $8,000 a week on marijuana, and that he buys his codeine in bulk amounts and he's also taking Xanax and Ambien. "Weed plays a huge part in Justin’s life," a source told the paper. "He smokes 12 bongs a day and can spend 5,000 pounds a week. He also takes relaxant Xanax and sleep aid Ambien. For his sizzurp, Justin gets bulk shipments of the codeine syrup he likes from Canada then mixes it with Fanta Pineapple before dropping a sweet in it. He even has a child’s sippy cup of it by his bed."
Um, you know the Michael Jackson comparison that was made the other day? That's the first thing we're thinking of here...
