So So Def founder Jermaine "JD" Dupri has come forward to lend some support to teen pop star Justin Bieber in light of a publicized arrest last week.
According to reports, JD said Bieber fell victim to being a mega celebrity.
Jermaine Dupri voiced his support for Justin Bieber by saying the crooner was a victim of celebrity profiling by Miami Beach PD. The So So Def CEO knows a thing or two about South Florida cops targeting celebs, considering he was almost arrested during a routine traffic stop back in December. According to JD, law authorities pulled him over and accused the producer of drug possession. Despite Dupri trying to explain to cops that the smell derived from clubs allowing attendees to smoke inside their facilities, the officials went on with their search and found nothing in return. However, Jermaine did suggest Justin Bieber's only flaw was driving a car that was "too flashy" down the Miami strip. (XXL Mag)
A few days ago, the Biebs posted up a Michael Jackson-inspired photo onto his Instagram page following his jail release.
Justin Bieber is feeling like the King of Pop. The teen superstar has compared himself to his idol Michael Jackson in a split black-and-white photo on Instagram. The Biebs posted a pic of himself waving to fans from atop his chauffeured car after being released from jail alongside a 2004 photo of Jackson, who stood on top of an SUV outside court after pleading not guilty to child molestation charges. "What more can they say ?," wrote Biebs, along with a crown symbol. (Rap-Up)
Photos of Bieber leaving his Miami home last week after posting bail heated up the 'net.
It's been a tough week for Justin Bieber. But the troubled teenager seemed happy enough on Friday night as he was pictured grinning when he left a rented Miami mansion. The self-styled King of Pop was in good spirits, signing autographs for fans while surrounded by bodyguards. Also with him was his 38-year-old father Jeremy, amid fears that the star's life may be spiraling out of control, and who some have accused of being a bad influence on Justin. (New York Daily News)
The 19-year-old singer found himself in handcuffs for drag racing and a driving under the influence charge earlier in the week.
Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement tells us ... Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn't end with DUI ... he was also busted for drag racing. The arrest occurred early Thursday morning. Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested -- presumably to more precisely measure his blood alcohol level. Our law enforcement sources say Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene ... and failed. (TMZ)
