Photos of Justin Bieber allegedly smoking pot at a party inside a Newport Beach hotel room on January 2 are circulating the Internet -- just days after a paparazzo was killed trying to take pictures of his Ferrari.
The photos obtained by TMZ show 18-year-old Bieber holding an alleged blunt at a party with friends, including 19-year-old rapper Lil Twist who was driving Bieber's Ferrari when the paparazzo was killed.
Bieber seemed to be addressing the photos via Twitter.
"everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up," he tweeted, later adding, "I see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and...thank u."
Ironically, the paparazzo who was killed claimed Bieber was smoking pot hours before the fatal accident. Bieber insiders have been adamant that he was lying.
