In the wake of authorities investigating the Baby singer for an egging incident, and drugs reportedly found on the premises during a subsequent investigation, Bieber Tuesday uploaded a picture to his Instagram account in which he's smoking a big cigar, adding, "I’m in Cuba I love Cubans."
(In terms of the legalities of the Canadian singer's trek to the communist nation, we know from Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip there last year that while it remains illegal for Americans to venture there as tourists, U.S. officials can approve trips for culture-based purposes.)
In the meantime, Bieber's mother, Pattie Mallette encouraged his fans to pray for her son during these trying times, which include a drug investigation and an embarrassing thread of texts made public earlier this week.
She told the UK SUN, "I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day.
"I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots," the 37-year-old said, "and they get influenced somehow."
