Justin Bieber’s team may be staging an intervention, is he taking steroids?

Justin Bieber

Here’s an October 2013 photo of Justin Bieber showing off his abs, which are important later oin this post. Bieber was (thankfully) not at the Grammys last night. He’s been in Panama for the past few days to take a load off after resisting arrest for DUI in Miami Beach. We talked yesterday about how the Miami Beach police department may have fudged the blood-alcohol content on Bieber’s swaggy arrest papers. We’ve got more good news and bad news coming right at ya. Here are many more updates:

* Not only did the Miami Beach PD screw up Bieb’s blood alcohol level, but they embellished the speed of the “drag race.” TMZ got ahold of surveillance video and GPS reports that prove Bieber was traveling only 27 mph during the race. This is just amazing. A police department manages to arrest this menace, and they screw it up completely. Bieber was still underage drinking and driving under the influence of weed and mystery prescription drugs. He’ll probably skate.

* Justin’s still in Panama, and he’s hanging on the beach with Chantel Jeffiers, the “bad girl with a big heart.” Reports say Chantel dared Bieber to drag race, and that “she would be the prize.

* Justin’s mom reportedly flew down to Panama. She is in attendance with Bieb’s manager, Scooter Braun, and Bieb’s childhood buddy Ryan Butler. TMZ has photos of Scooter with a Belieber, who also took a selfie with … Usher. The buzz is that they’re all planning to stage an intervention on the swaggy adult.

* Bieber’s former housekeeper, Tatiana Voziouk, has spoken to the Mirror. She’s detailing all of the drug use she saw while working in Bieb’s home: “I’m terrified he’ll become the next Michael Jackson. If he doesn’t act now I will hear one day that he has passed away. It is heartbreaking. I have decided to speak out now as I care for him. On the kitchen top there was often a bottle of prescription cough syrup which I know had codeine in it, but I am not sure what else. There were soft drinks like Fanta alongside it too. I was told not to touch those bottles. And I wasn’t allowed to throw them away. I was always picking up joint butts and stubs from the kitchen, lounge and pool area where they had been thrown.

* TMZ has photos of Bieber’s kitchen that were taken in early 2013. The pictures are full of drug paraphernalia and (allegedly) cups of Sizzurp. Bieber also spends $8500 on marijuana per week. How is that possible? The Mail cites a friend who says Biebs smokes 12 bongs per day. He also relies on Xanax and Ambien. Aaand he keeps “a child’s sippy cup” of Sizzurp by his bed. That last part is absolute gold.

* You may have noticed Justin’s 38-year-old dad, Jeremy, in in photos from the Miami Beach debacle. He’s the one in the blue shirt (see gallery pictures). Radar Online says that Baby Biebs has been financially supporting dad for years even though Jeremy was absent until his son became rich. An insider says, “Jeremy treats Justin as a friend, a peer, instead of as his son, they’re buddies. It’s absolutely no secret that Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, and Jeremy don’t get along. Scooter has been the father figure in Justin’s life, and then all of a sudden, Jeremy pops back on the scene … look at all the chaos in Justin’s life. Scooter is the voice of reason, and tells him stuff Justin doesn’t want to hear, and Jeremy is the opposite.” I agree that Jeremy isn’t exactly a good influence, but I think Biebs would be going off the rails even without deadbeat dad back in his life.

* A story that originated in the Sun (via The Mail) says the Biebs has been hitting anabolic steroids to enhance his physique. Biebs is allegedly abusing Clenbuterol “to give himself a six pack. His physique had gone from boy-like to muscled in a very short time and his mood have become wildly erratic.” Well Bieber has gained weight lately. He’s a whole 140 pounds now. This theory implies that since Bieber is all newly ripped, his team might be able to blame his swaggy actions on roid rage. For reference’s sake, here’s Bieber’s chest in 2012.

    2. Scooter is no voice of reason. He’s always justifying bieber’s bad behavior.
    Ugh.

  2. QQ says:

    Sure, at this point, why not! The goddamned shame is his mooching ass dad being with him in Miami while all of this was happenning

    • Pia says:

      I’m getting quite the chuckle for “joint butts” and “12 bongs a day”. They are called roaches and normal, non-spoiled people don’t throw them away because they still have weed in them! As far as 12 “bongs” a day… perhaps they mean bowl packs? Wouldn’t surprise me if he actually did own 12+ different bongs, but they can vary quite a bit in size so it’s not really how you measure how much someone smokes in a day. If he’s spending $8,500 a week, that means he is letting his whole entourage smoke for free to keep them around. No way one person could smoke that much, even if you are throwing the roaches away. Or he’s getting ripped off by someone who knows they can get away with it.

      • KB says:

        lol I don’t think anyone Bieber hangs around with would say he smokes “12 bongs per day.” That is like the lamest way to possibly describe how much he smokes, it doesn’t even make sense.

  3. Jessica says:

    I don’t understand why Justin would let his deadbeat father back in his life when the deadbeat only showed up when his son that he never acknowledged started making money. Doesn’t Justin see how much of a douchebag his dad is? His dad doesn’t give a shiz about Justin his entire life, but wants to party and take money from him once he becomes a millionaire. Seriously, the dad is a dick. Justin is a moron.

    • Tapioca says:

      Because he’s his dad and blood is harder to clean up than water.

      Because he got back in his life when Biebs was still a (relatively) sweet kid, preaching Christian values like forgiveness, so he probably convinced himself he was doing the right thing.

      Because kicking him out of the circle would mean one less enabler!

      • FLORC says:

        Beiber may have still had the Christian persona, but it was fading fast at that point and his actions were no where near his PR image. This kid was rotten from the jump. His dad came in and became a yes man for a seat on the gravy train. That Bieber was foolish enough to not see that proves he’s dumber than we all thought.
        I doubt very much Bieber values family over money. If blood was truly a bonding factor for him he wouldn’t have threatened to cut his mom off for not giving into him. Not to mention how he freaked out at her when she wanted to use an agreed upon picture of mother and son for her book cover.

      • Kiki says:

        That saying “blood is harder to clean up than water is genius and so a accurate for situations like these.

  4. ToodySezHey says:

    Months ago, Lainey had a BI about the biebs, and it was specifically about his steroid use. The blind also mentioned that he tried not to be topless too often because of the backne the steroids gave him.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      since his selfies in his gym room,i thought his steroid use was known

    • MrsB says:

      I haven’t read the BI, but I have taken it as a given that he was using steroids since he swelled up overnight it seems. You just don’t get defined muscles like that so quickly.

      • FLORC says:

        Too quickly. My BIL is big in weights. He slimmed down a few years ago to do the iron man race and after that was insecure without his muscle mass so he freaked out to put it back on. His life was weights, suppliments and protein all day every day. And Bieber still put weight on faster than my Brother in law.
        And I doubt Bieber was not partaking of junk food, staying hydrated, and keeping off drugs. He just chose the easiest shortcut.

  5. ToodySezHey says:

    Also, forget Bieber’s chest..why does he lave the slender legs of an prepubescent girl?

    How does he get women to sleep him, he is such a a delicate flower!

    • SnarkGirl says:

      That’s what happens when guys get obsessed with their upper body and skip leg workouts (’cause they’re too hard). I see it a lot at my gym. As much as some women are obsessed with having big tits, guys can be just as bad. It looks silly too – big arms, ripped chest, and stick legs.

      • Miz Misanthrope says:

        ^ this it’s actually really sad and to me the biggest way to pick out a juicer. They never bother with their legs unless in Mr Universe

    • KB says:

      He only works out his glamour muscles

  6. Lark says:

    The Mail is called the Fail for a reason, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was taking roids.

  7. Red32 says:

    I’m more inclined to believe that someone high up in Miami got paid to make this go away, rather than a cop “exaggerating” the original charges.

  8. Wiffie says:

    I’ve call him a total tool, but even those serve a purpose.

  9. SnarkGirl says:

    Although he doesn’t have the classic ‘roid boy look, it wouldn’t surprise me at all that he’s on them. Remember, this is the kid who had his bodyguards carry his lazy ass up the Great Wall of China.

    I’d say he’d take any easy route he can to get what he wants.

  10. Tippy says:

    A better question to ask might be “what isn’t Justin Bieber taking?”.

    An intervention might be somewhat disingenuous on the part of Braun and Usher since they probably encouraged his steroid use in order to provide longevity to his career.

    The Sizzurp cups that litter Bieber’s home are all marked with a person’s name. For whatever reason they are continuously re-used.

  11. Nicolette says:

    Can he stay in Panama?

  12. Talie says:

    He looks like he deflated a bit even from that top photo. Some men can take steroids approved by docs — and I think he may have been one of those candidates since he was so small. He may have lacked enough testosterone. It was a bit odd that someone his age had the body of a 12 year old, and then even more odd when he ballooned up.

    • Tippy says:

      He had probably been on estrogen therapy for several years after he reached puberty. He’s almost 20 now and seems incapable of growing facial hair.

      • littlestar says:

        Do you think that’s actually possible? Very chilling if so. It’s like forever remaining a child. I don’t mean this in a snarky way at all, but it does make sense in the fact that he has such a delicate body and feminine features, and almost no body hair whatever (I’m hairier than him, for crying out loud).

        The steroid use however, I completely believe.

      • Tippy says:

        @LITTLESTAR, I know that it’s possible to do. It’s an old entertainment industry trick used to maintain a boyish appearance and other characteristics well beyond puberty.

      • Happyhat says:

        Oh my God… That HAS to be totally true. Even if it’s not, it’s still now totally true in my mind.

  13. Pers says:

    He’s a putz. That’s it. I’m in Canada, originally from Ontario….send him back, he can live in a shack in the forest.

    Loser.

    • Jaded says:

      I’m from Ontario too – I say let him come back and live in a crack shack at Jane and Finch. That’ll give him some street cred…

  14. msw says:

    That’s what I’ve been saying. Roid rage is a likely culprit.

  15. Leslilly says:

    The top pic of him is just silly. You can see that he had the muscle definition painted on! I’m really surprised you didn’t point that out in the post.

  16. Kiddo says:

    Most ineffectual use of steroids ever, if true.

  17. shanaynay says:

    This is sad. His parents are not helping/enabling and the fame and criticism is getting so much to him that he has to self medicate this way in order to deal with being a child star. Let’s stop judging these child stars who at the beginning just wanted some validation for their talent but who fell down the ugly road of Hollywood with no real guides or mentors to help them. I hope he gets help.

  18. Onyx XV says:

    UGH, he’s just so gross and trashy – in every possible way that a person can be. I’m very much looking forward to his 15 minutes being up.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    That supposed intervention didn’t work.

    These Instagram pics scream bad PR. His teen and tween fans may like this stuff, but the parents who pay for the CDs, merchandise, concerts won’t. We’re just watching this guy swirl down the bowl.

  20. StaCat1 says:

    His team (notably his parents) are a MAJOR part of the problem.

    I don’t see any of this ending well. He compared himself to Michael jackson- which I don’t get- he certainly doesn’t match MJ’s talent–but perhaps matches in delusion, self-aggrandizement and ultimately perhaps early deaths.

    Sounds like he hasn’t hit bottom yet. Could get uglier for this kid.

    • Happyhat says:

      I get a strong Gary Busey or Jeff Conaway vibe from Bieber’s future. It’s gonna get ugly – not necessarily an early death, but a very painfully long drawn-out decent into hell.

  21. Dommy Dearest says:

    I’m sure that’s 12 blunts and not bongs cause let’s be real, it uh, ain’t hard to hit 12 bowls in the bong per day.

    Little punk is wasting weed. I hope he gets the bad kind instead of the awesome kind. I can dream.

  22. jaye says:

    It is disturbing that he’s abusing so many drugs simultaneously. That’s a recipe for disaster.

  23. ol cranky says:

    clenbuterol isn’t a steroid, it’s a potent beta-agonist (type of bronchodilator) for animal use that people abuse to lose weight and beef up. if you hear he’s had any cardiac issues, he’s using it

  24. jwoolman says:

    I wouldn’t take the TMZ stuff too seriously. It was the usual unresearched “wow wow wow” poorly written story the interns churn out on weekends. Speed is not in the definition of illegal street/drag racing (otherwise cops couldn’t intervene before someone was killed or maimed or turned into a vegetable as Hulk Hogan’s little street racer did to his passenger). The setup to race is the defining point. Also sampling rate by an onboard recorder is crucial since those cars can easily accelerate and decelerate outside the recorded times. Justin is 19 and not legal to drink. The law sets the legal limit to .02 for under 21 drivers, but the legal limit is set only as a cutoff point at which it’s extremely hard to contest the DUI. You can indeed be charged with DUI when below that limit if you are proven to be impaired. So if the cops have video of the field sobriety test they said he failed- the bac doesn’t matter. If toxicology results support other drugs in his system, that will support the report of impairment. Also he was very definitely driving on an expired license. The signs of setup for racing made police testing of the drivers quite reasonable.

    In other words- Justin isn’t in the clear just because of TMZ’s usual shoddy imitation of reporting. Personally, I hope enough sticks to at least lift his license for the automatic six months. He really desperately needs a timeout. I think he’s really tired of working and has full access to all his money at an age when that’s unfortunate. I even wonder if he’s having trouble with his voice- has anyone heard him sing without electronic enhancement lately? He really did have a good, well trained voice when he was younger. It’s not unusual for male singers to go through a lengthy period of adjustment during adolescence.
