BIEBDennis Rodman’s announcement that he is entering rehab for alcohol abuse surprised just about nobody. Late Sunday, celebrity media was abuzz about what might be next for The Bieb after a spate of serial bad behavior.

Does Justin Bieber have a drug problem?

While the pop star came up squeaky clean in a recent house raid that pinned his pal Lil Za for ecstasy possession, a new report claims that the “All That Matters” singer isn’t exactly innocent.

Bieber, 20, is reportedly developing a codeine habit that has his handlers worried – according to TMZ.

The pop star is reportedly abusing “sizzurp,” a drink popular with some rappers like Lil Wayne that includes a mixture of codeine and promethazine.

“Multiple credible, connected sources” told the gossip site that the singer has been regularly sipping “sizzurp” or “lean,” a mixture that includes codeine and promethazine, and that his team is urging him to seek treatment.

Bieber has also reportedly been taking “lots of prescription pills,” TMZ reports, in addition to consuming “lots of alcohol and weed.”
