Justin Bieber Fights Racism Charges By Getting Baptized
When word surfaced that there were videos portraying Justin Bieber as a racist, the pop sensation did what anyone would do with such a threat hanging over his head–he found a preacher and took Bible study, resulting in getting Baptized in a bathtub.
Bieber turned to the Lord while being shaken down over his racist videos — and TMZ has learned he washed away his sins with a baptism performed in a bathroom.
Pastor Carl Lentz — who works with Bieber in NYC — tells us he spent a week doing intense Bible study with Justin last month … in the wake of being extorted over the videos.
As we previously reported — JB’s team was contacted 2 months ago by a man in possession of the videos and wanted a million dollar payday or else he’d go public.
We’re told Bieber’s religious resurgence focused on studying Bible passages and attending services … culminating in an actual baptism performed in the bathtub of one of the singer’s friends.
Why a bathtub, you ask? We’re told JB previously checked out a bunch of churches for the dip — but his cover was blown every time and he wanted to keep the whole thing private.
