That is what some friends are speculating.

Family friend Cory Bernier tells the British newspaper the Daily Mirror that "Justin has a very good heart but his judgement is being clouded by drugs and alcohol and a lot of it is to impress his dad."

Jeremy was alongside his son at a Miami nightclub before the incident and never intervened.

What do you think? Is Bieber's lastest scandal simply the result of a boy trying to emulate his father?
