Bieber to get psychotherapy?

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is said to have been advised to return to L.A. for psychotherapy.

The popstar was arrested for driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence and driving on an expired licence in Miami in the early hours of yesterday morning.

After appearing in court later in the day Justin was released with a bail totalling $2,500.

Those close to the singer are said to be advising him to return to L.A. now the ordeal is over so he can seek professional help.

TMZ reports "they have been trying to get him into rehab for months, but he has scoffed at the idea - he won't have a conversation about it and insists he doesn't need it."

Justin was apparently under the influence of alcohol, antidepressants and had been smoking marijuana before the drag race which caused his arrest.

This has triggered more concerns for the 19-year-old musician and the website also claims his people "believe the next best step is psychotherapy ... to deal with both his drug problem and the underlying issues that have caused it."

Justin is believed to be willing to have a serious discussion when he returns to L.A. and hasn't dismissed the idea.

A mugshot of the teenage heartthrob showed him grinning at the camera, his hair styled in his iconic quiff.

However, according to people.com. Justin was far from smiling after being on trial and returning to the detention centre.

"[He was] crying his eyes out," a source revealed.

This event marks the latest in a long line of troubles for Justin. Cops raided his Calabasas, California, mansion last week in connection with an egging incident on his neighbour's home, which caused a reported $20,000 worth of damage. TMZ said LA County Sheriff's deputies were faced with evidence of drug use when inside Justin's property.

Despite these allegations his manager Scooter Braun has voiced his support for the young star. He wrote a heart-felt message on Twitter sharing his feelings.

"@justinbieber love you and i will act in the manner of someone who truly cares. that is all I have to say. thanks for all those concerned (sic)," he wrote.

"Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad. (sic)."
