It is en vogue to hate on Justin Bieber for being a punk—and, granted, Justin Bieber is a punk. But Justin Bieber, just a talented kid, is not the Bieber you should hate. No, that is Jeremy Bieber, Justin's dad.
A few days ago, TMZ reported that Jeremy Bieber—pictured above at a UFC event, who has the name of a child and the face of an Adam Sandler character but is in fact an adult with his own children—hurled the family dog off of a two-story balcony because it bit Justin's little brother Jaxon sometime last year.
Justin and Jeremy Bieber bought Karma, an American Bulldog, a year ago, and it was rough from the beginning. Karma was living at Jeremy's Canada home, but the animal needed training. It bit Justin's little bro Jaxon, which sent Jeremy into nuclear mode.
Trainer Trevor Dvernichuk tells TMZ ... Jeremy grabbed the dog and hurled him off the balcony into a snow bank.
This is just one of Jeremy's alleged transgressions, and it is certainly not the first. For instance, last month he was ordered by a judge to pay over $12,000 for trashing an Ontario apartment he lived in between 2011 and 2012. Via TMZ:
The landlord claims he left the place in shambles ... pet urine and feces stains all the over place, a toilet that busted after someone flushed a hairbrush down it and lots of other stuff.
What's notable about this is incident is not that Justin Bieber's dad is a reckless asshole, but that his 20-year-old son pays his rent. Here is a receipt from court filings that show Bieber wiring $1,650 for one month's rent (in Ontario!):
I mean, whatever, but at least have the decency of not leaving piss and shit all over an apartment that your son pays for? That's some sad-ass fathering.
If you have ever wondered why Justin Bieber has turned out to be such a little shit, you need to look no further than his father, who appears to fancy himself merely as his son's partner-in-crime.
You may remember when Justin was arrested in Miami for DUI and drag racing. Well, the person who was making sure that there were cars blocking the road Justin was racing on was Jeremy.
Justin Bieber's dad, Jeremy Bieber, was at the scene of Justin's DUI drag racing arrest on Jan. 23, a source close to Justin confirmed to HollywoodLife.com. He also reportedly helped his son block off the street so that he and his friend, rapper Khalil, could race their Lamborghinis on the residential street, reported TMZ.
You may remember a minor controversy involving Justin Bieber, a private plane, weed smoke and Super Bowl weekend 2014.
According to multiple law enforcement sources, the leased, luxurious Gulfstream IV on which the 19-year-old Canadian pop star, his father and an entourage of 10 friends traveled was so full of marijuana smoke that the pilots were forced to wear oxygen masks.
"The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana," says the official report of the incident. "The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behavior toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse."
"The flight attendant stated the passengers, including Bieber and his father, Jeremy Bieber," stated the report, "were extremely abusive verbally and she would not work another flight with them."
Justin and Jeremy Bieber—age 39—were reportedly such dicks to a private plane flight attendant that she was forced to cower in the cockpit and then refused to ever work with them again.
Justin Bieber's jailbird father was once charged with assault for allegedly breaking an 18-year-old girl's jaw after he smashed her in the face with a flying roundhouse kick, MailOnline can reveal today.
Jeremy Bieber was taken to court, accused of the brutal attack on Alicia Wadden – who stood at just 5ft3in and weighed 100 pounds.
Alicia says she was knocked unconscious by the kung fu style kick, which, according to her statement given to police, broke her jaw in two places, chipped her teeth and forced her to eat pureed food for two months.
Jeremy Bieber faced no consequences for that alleged action, and here is why:
However, the day before the case was due to go to court, Alicia alleges Jeremy, now 39, turned up at her boyfriend's work and handed him $1,000, telling him that she should not show up to testify.
Alicia took the money and left town soon after, moving back in with her family in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Justin Bieber's mom gave birth to him when she was in a "home for pregnant girls" and raised him on her own. Now his father mooches off him and is one of his many companions who flies around the world encouraging his worst tendencies. Except, of course, he's 39 years old.
Oh, also, he wears cargo pants at the beach.
Nice life if you can swing it.
