It's a question many have asked for months:
Is Lil Twist a bad influence on Justin Bieber?
And should the singer put distance between himself and the rapper, especially now that Twist has been arrested for smoking up while driving?
But if fans are seeking an answer from Bieber, they may not like the one TMZ source allege he has given: Lil Twist isn't going anywhere.
Despite pleas from other members of his entourage, Bieber has no plans to evict either Lil Twist or Lil Za from his mansion. Nor will he forbid them from driving around in his expensive cars.
Both Twist and Za played roles in almost every Bieber scandal over the past few months, from getting high to drinking sizzurp to speeding around the neighborhood to peeing in mop buckets.
But Justin is taking a stand, this insider says.
He has been surrounded by adults most his life and has finally found pals his age and he doesn't believe he should abandon them. No matter what they do or say.
Is this a righteous stand? Or is it loyal to a fault?
Sound off now: What should Justin Bieber to about Lil Twist?
