Justin Bieber's grandmother has defended the star, insisting the paparazzi "pick on him".
The Boyfriend singer has been at the centre of several controversies in recent months - including making disparaging remarks about former US President Bill Clinton and relieving himself in a bucket at a New York restaurant.
But his gran Diane Dale told CTV Ottawa he is just being a normal teenager.
She said: "It's totally crazy. I feel sorry for Justin all the time because paparazzi pick on him all the time.
"Anybody else's kids have done the same thing but nobody says anything."
Justin's grandad Bruce Dale added: "He's just a 19-year-old boy and before you criticise him, say, what is my 19-year-old boy doing?"
