Justin Bieber has been financially supporting his 38-year-old father, Jeremy Bieber, who had been partying with his son both before and after the 19-year-old was arrested for a DUI and drag racing in Miami, is exclusively reporting.

"Jeremy was absent for most of Justin's childhood, and has only been a presence his life in the past several years after the singer catapulted to super stardom," a source told Radar.

"Jeremy loves the lifestyle his son leads, private jets, exotic cars and over the top vacations. Justin had been financially supporting Jeremy for several years. Jeremy treats Justin as a friend, a peer, instead of as his son, they're buddies."

According to the insider, Bieber's team doesn’t get along with Jeremy because they don't think he's a positive influence on the Canadian pop star.

"It's absolutely no secret that Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, and Jeremy don't get along. Scooter has been the father figure in Justin's life, and then all of a sudden, Jeremy pops back on the scene....look at all the chaos in Justin's life," the source said.


"Scooter is the voice of reason, and tells him stuff Justin doesn't want to hear, and Jeremy is the opposite."

A few hours behind bars didn't slow Justin down one bit. Just after he posted $2,500 bail and was released from Miami’s Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, he headed straight to South Beach for a few drinks…with his dad!

CBS News 4 MIAMI reporter Gaby Fleischman snapped the shot of Justin checking his phone and hanging at a table filled with bottles around 5:30 p.m. EST Thursday. His dad, Jeremy, was right by his side — as he reportedly was during the drag racing incident that led to Justin's arrest.

Meanwhile, Justin has "been avoiding phone calls from his mom, Pattie Mallette. You would never see her out in clubs with Justin, or enabling his out of control behavior," the source added.

"It's really sad to watch, because Justin does really need a father in his life, but Jeremy isn't acting like one."
