Justin Bieber is in a bit of a pickle after being photographed smoking a rather dodgy looking cigarette.

TMZ.com caught the teen star chuffing on what didn't exactly look like a Marlboro light in an article they entitled 'Justin Bieber, let's be BLUNT, whatcha smoking?'.

Justin was pictured smoking what is known as a 'blunt' and basically is a cigar hollowed out and filled with marijuana.

If you're still unsure, ask Rihanna.

That is, unless Bieber simply has a new found appreciation for Monti Cristo cigars...

However, sources who were there when the chuffing took place say that a cigar it was not and that Justin shared his special cig with his rapper BFF Lil Twist.

They added that while his security was there, they didn't seem to mind photos being taken.

Justin has since apologised for his actions, saying that he will try and 'be better'.

Writing on Twitter, the star said:"Everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up".

“Back on tour tomorrow. ready to see u all smile. time to do what im supposed to be doing. performing. #BELIEVEtour.”

He has since performed on stage in his first appearance since the snaps were released, no Monti Cristos in sight.

The pictures were taken the day after a paparazzo was killed while trying to chase Bieber's car down the road.

Ironically, the pap has said before he was killed that he had spotted Bieber smoking weed.
