Once upon a time, Justin Bieber was a fresh-faced teen with a squeaky clean image but these days he's acting more like the global pop star that he is: he drives fast cars and hangs out with a faster crowd.

This reportedly worries his long-time manager Scooter Braun, who is afraid that Bieber is headed for a downward spiral, sources tell Radar Online. This source says, "Justin is hanging out with the wrong people. It's been one incident after another with him and Braun has always been very supportive and still is. But now Scooter wants him to go to rehab to get his act together. Justin needs to get away from the bad influences in his life."

Braun isn't the only one who thinks this way. This source says his mother and close friends are worried, too. And it's not news that his neighbors are annoyed with Bieber and his posse for ignoring the 25 mph speed limit in his swanky Calabasas hood.

Lately, Bieber has been coming off kind of assholish and narcissistic. A neighbor said Bieber spit on him, Bieber has speculated that Anne Frank would have been a Belieber and he basically called Lindsay Lohan poor.
