Justin Bieber is reportedly far from pleased that he's being blamed for Selena Gomez's rehab stint, saying his former flame is a party girl through and through.
The addiction problems that resulted in Gomez checking into rehab are hers and hers alone, says Bieber, regardless of what he and his friends do for fun.
TMZ, citing "sources with daily Bieber contact" (Lil Za?) says the star and his posse are laughing at the "bad influence" claims reported in the press.
That's because Selena, they say, is always the drunk girl at the party.
Bieber acknowledges he gets trashed, too. There's no dispute there, nor could there possibly be, given the stories, photos and videos we've all seen.
What he does dispute is the idea that he corrupted her, seeing she was known to smoke just as much weed as the guys and sometimes outdo them.
Justin's camp say Gomez was/is very into drinking alcohol as well.
So what's with the story that she went to rehab because of him?
Justin apparently feels Selena's parents are behind that narrative ... because they despise him. In his eyes, he's a convenient scapegoat for them.
As we previously reported, Bieber's camp warned him to stay away from her, believing she is the bad influence here, despite her good girl reputation.
The Biebs' brushes with the law are well-documented, and his handlers think she indirectly fuels that, as he tends to act out when he's hung up on her.
As you can see, the finger-pointing appears to be reciprocal.
For his part, Justin's happy she's out of the picture because she's just too high maintenance and out of control - a far cry from what Gomez's people say.
Whatever and whomever is to blame for their issues, it's a far cry from the good ol' days when Justin took Selena's virginity and all was right with the world ...
