In addition to headlines about wooing Selena Gomez back, egging his neighbors, and having a friend who was just arrested for drug possession, the latest in face-palming Justin Bieber news is that the 19-year-old's life may be at risk if he doesn't get to rehab soon. Not only is he allegedly taking prescription drugs like Xanax, smoking marijuana, and drinking, but Bieber's hooked on sizzurp, multiple sources told TMZ. The dangerous drink, also called "lean," is usually a mixture of promethazine, codeine, Sprite, and a Jolly Rancher, and has been known to cause seizures. (Lil Wayne's seizures last year were rumored to be linked to sizzurp.)
Supposedly, the only silver lining here: Biebs does NOT do cocaine and has never done it in his life, reports TMZ's sources. Well, wheeew -- what a relief.
Of course it's not all! Because what comfort is that when everything else here he's allegedly messing around with sounds plenty toxic and potentially lethal?
At the very least, people around him are well-aware of the serious dangers Biebs could be facing if he doesn't get clean. Apparently, a number of people, including friends, are very worried and have urged him to get help and go to rehab. HollywoodLife.com reached out to Justin's reps, who had no comment.
But if there's even a grain of truth to these reports, let's hope his reps have plenty to say to Justin himself. Because it sounds like the kid could be in grave danger if there isn't a successful intervention ASAP.
Do you believe these reports and think he needs help?
