Justin Bieber is geting a reputation as quite the (alleged) pothead.
The 18-year-old singer is about to be in the middle of yet another marijuana controversy, as TMZ reports that more photos of the singer holding a blunt have been sold to media outlets.
According to the website, the photos that were taken on Jan. 31 show Bieber and his pal Lil Za passing the blunt back and forth while outside a Los Angeles home.
If the photos are released, this will mark the second time the singer has been caught red-handed. While being caught with a little joint doesn't really seem scandalous at all since it's totally legal to smoke weed in California with a prescription, Bieber still runs the risk of being seen as a bad role model for his legions of younger fans.
Reports of Bieber acting out have coincided with his split from girlfriend of two years Selena Gomez, and Bieber recently admitted he's "not in the happiest place" right now.
TMZ also wonders about the company the singer has been keeping. His pal Lil Za, who is in the most recent round of photos, was also pulled over and detained for driving the singer's Ferrari without a license on Feb. 1.
UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that there are photos that appear to show a large bottle of codeine (aka sizzurp), as well as weed, at the party. In the pictures, Justin Bieber is with his pals Lil Za and Lil Twist.
