They did not want him lying on a slab in the morgue, a toe tag being the only thing that
could identify who he was ? and who he had once been.
For weeks, the walls had seemed to be closing on him. Everywhere Justin turned, there
was trouble of one kind or another.
Cops in California found drugs in his posh Calabasas playpen two weeks before after a
juvenile egg-throwing incident. While Justin would likely skate on vandalism charges,
one of his hangers-on, Lil Za, was unlikely to be so lucky.
Things were getting so hot in southern California that Justin decided to take a break with
some pals, and his father, Jeremy Bieber, in sunny Miami Beach.
?Justin had always loved the scene in Miami,? a childhood friend said. ?It was a lot
wilder and there fewer eyes watching what he was up to. There were paps but it was
nothing like Los Angeles.?
At the King of Diamonds strip joint on NE 5th Avenue on Jan. 21, Bieber helped rapper
Lil Scrappy celebrate his birthday in style.
The naked women roaming the club were quite happy too as the Baby singer spread the
love to the tune of $75,000 in singles for their raunchy antics.
Bieber and company, including his pal rapper Khalil Sharief, 19, had hunkered down at a
posh beige palazzo in Miami Beach. This was to be party central, a headquarters of
hedonism in the tropical metropolis.
There, with his 38-year-old father, posse of pals and army of hangers-on, Justin was
intent on having some big fun.
And tossing out the rulebook.
After reportedly smoking marijuana all day, Bieber and company hit the popular SET

spending more than $5,000 a week on pot.
In addition to the reefer, Justin was also taking anti-anxiety drugs his mother had
admitted giving him. The pills were to calm his rattled nerves.
It was clear to everyone in his ever-expanding orbit that the pressure of being the biggest
pop star on the planet was starting to get the better of him.
In Stratford, Ontario, where he grew up, old friends were also becoming increasingly
alarmed. They had watched anxiously as Justin?s disastrous 2013 went from bad to
And nearly all of them blamed Jeremy Bieber. To them, Jeremy was wielding too much
influence over Justin ? who, more than anything wanted to please his father.
?Jeremy likes the money, the fame, the travel, the lifestyle? he?s more interested in
being Justin?s buddy than his father,? a longtime friend said. ?He?s not going to tell Justin
that something is wrong or that he should think twice before doing something stupid.
Jeremy isn?t going to do anything that?s going to wreck his relationship with Justin or
?That would be killing the goose that laid the golden egg.?
As Jeremy?s star was rising in Justin?s eyes, his mother was being shunted aside in favor
of his party-hardy pater.
Before Justin hit the big time, Jeremy lived across the country in Winnipeg. When the
dollars began rolling in, so did Jeremy. Justin bought him buildings, cars and an $850,000
mansion outside Stratford. It was nice work.
Not surprisingly, it was reportedly Jeremy who closed off the quiet Miami Beach street so
