Justin Bieber Caught on Tape During Egg Attack

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Justin BieberJustin Bieber was reportedly caught on tape at the time of the egg attack on his neighbor's house.

New surveillance footage showing the "Boyfriend" singer near the property in Calabasas, California - which suffered an estimated $20,000 of damage in the incident - when it was hit by eggs last month is being considered as critical evidence in the case against the star.

According to gossip website TMZ, Justin isn't seen holding any eggs but he is reportedly heard shouting abuse at his neighbor. In the short clip, a man thought to be Bieber is heard shouting, "F**k you! I got another one for you actually." However, sources close to the star have disputed the authenticity of the video, which is too dark to clearly make out the "Baby" hitmaker.

The reports come after the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department passed the case on to the Los Angeles County District Attorney and strongly recommended that the "Beauty and a Beat" singer be punished to the fullest extent of the law. The District Attorney is expected to make a decision on the case - which was originally filed as a misdemeanor but could become a felony due to the extent of the damage - in approximately one week.

The 19-year-old star was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license on January 23, but the singer's yellow rented Lamborghini reached 136 MPH at 1.23 a.m., long before he was pulled over by police shortly after 4 a.m.

According to data, obtained by TMZ.com, from the car's built-in GPS tracking system, which recorded its speed and location at all times, the vehicle clocked 108 MPH on the Julia Tuttle Causeway in Miami Beach and accelerated to 136 MPH within a minute while being driven to Set nightclub, where the singer arrived at 2:27 a.m. and partied for an hour before leaving. But the data also shows that Justin was cruising under the speed limit at 27 MPH when he was arrested and accused of drag racing at between 55 and 60 MPH for 15 blocks.

Enrique IglesiasEnrique Iglesias has never dabbled in drugs.

The "Hero" hitmaker claims he's never been tempted to try an illegal substance, despite being surrounded by people in the industry that regularly snort cocaine:

"I was never tempted by drugs. The amount of times I've been asked, 'You don't do coke? But you're in music. You really don't do coke?' I don't like sticking stuff up my nose. Get me a drink, get me a rum. I drink, I'm a social drinker but I feel like I can control it. There are friends of mine who go out at the weekend and do a lot of cocaine and do any drug and be perfectly fine throughout the week. But some others can't do that. I need my eight hours' sleep, that's for sure."

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old singer believes that Justin Bieber, 19 - who was arrested last month for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest in Miami - is just being young and experimenting with life.

Justin Bieber Took Drugs on Plane

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs,

Justin Bieber's private jet was so thick with marijuana smoke, the pilots had to wear oxygen masks.

The "Believe" singer, his father Jeremy Bieber and an entourage of 10 flew from Canada to New Jersey last Friday and ignored warnings to stop smoking the narcotic, with flight staff forced to take drastic action as inhaling the smoke would have led to them failing drug tests, NBC News reports.

"The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana," the official incident report said. And the 19-year-old singer and his dad were "extremely abusive" to the flight attendant, prompting her to take refuge in the cockpit. "The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behaviour toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse. The flight attendant stated the passengers, including Bieber and his father, Jeremy Bieber were extremely abusive verbally and she would not work another flight with them," the report continued.
