Photos of Justin Bieber holding what looks like a blunt at a party in Newport Beach this week have surfaced.

The pictures were taken at a party in a hotel room in Orange County on January 2, according to TMZ's sources.

Coincidentally, these photos were taken the day after a paparazzo was killed in the pursuit of a picture just like this. Shortly before he was killed, photographer Chris Guerra called up a friend and told him that he had seen Bieber smoking from a pipe just a little while earlier. His friend worried that Guerra put himself at risk of getting hit because he was "overzealous" about his scoop.

Representatives for Bieber didn't have any comment, but Bieber did tweet this out around midnight not long after the pictures surfaced:
