Is he smoking pot? Well, we don’t know for sure, but where there’s (weed) smoke, there’s usually fire. Or a hazy cloud.

TMZ posted photos of the singer from Jan. 2, where he is holding a blunt in his hand at a Newport Beach hotel party. The snaps were taken a day after paparazzo Chris Guerra was killed while chasing the Ferrari and trying to get a photo, thinking Bieber was inside, but he wasn’t. Bieber’s peeps were adamant that Guerra’s claims (that he saw the teen toke up) were fabrications.

Then there were the rumors that on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez broke up with Biebs because he was smoking pot. She refused to acknowledge or answer those claims when hounded at LAX.
