Police have reportedly been called to Justin Bieber's new home twice already.
The "Believe" hitmaker is renting two apartments in a new complex in Beverly Hills - a penthouse and a property directly below - and even though he only moved in earlier this month, he has already ran into problems with his neighbors.
According to reports, the HOA (Home Owners Alliance) have been contacted because of excessive noise and marijuana use, and police were called on two occasions. One resident in the building told TMZ, "The smell of marijuana was permeating the floor, especially my hallway which is shared by [Justin's] unit."
According to the website, the 20-year-old star threw a party last week which went on until 4am and on Monday, he threw a small bash which saw his deck set up with bongs and a bar, and his entire penthouse was "hotboxed," meaning it was sealed off to maximize the possible high from smoking marijuana.
Usher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.
The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.
"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.
Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.
