On its website, TMZ published pictures of the 18-year-old Biebs' holding a sparked-up doobie while he celebrated the start of 2013 at a hotel party in Newport Beach on Wednesday. The party was held just one day after a paparazzo who was chasing Bieber's Ferrari was killed when another car ran him over.
Sources told TMZ Bieber's buddy and rapper Lil Twist -- who was driving Bieber's Ferrari when the paparazzo was killed -- was rolling all the blunts and passing them around to Bieber and others at the party.
In the photos, Bieber seems to be highly enjoying himself.
