Justin Bieber's Father Jeremy Takes Sleeping Photo of Star After Being Charged for Assault, Says He's "Safe and Sound"
His baby's home! Justin Bieber has had a rough month, and is trying to sleep it off at home in Ontario, Canada. Hours after turning himself in for an alleged assault against a limo driver in Toronto last December, the "Boyfriend" singer's father, Jeremy Bieber, snapped a picture of him snoozing with his younger brother in bed.
"Safe and sound #homesweethome," the 39-year-old dad wrote on Wednesday, Jan. 29. Alongside the caption, he posted a black and white photo of the (shirtless) troubled star sleeping next to his younger brother Jaxon, 4.
"The Toronto Police Service requested that Justin Bieber appear in Toronto today to face an allegation of assault relating to an incident on December 29, 2013," Bieber's rep said in a statement to Us Weekly. "We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States."
"Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent," the statement continued. "As the matter is now before the Court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time." He's set to appear back in court on Monday, March 10.
And that's not all. Less than a week ago, Bieber, 19, was also arrested for DUI in Miami, Fla. After being released on a bail of $2,500: $1,000 for DUI, $1,000 for resisting arrest and $500 for an expired license, he flew to Panama and was joined by his father, mother Pattie Mallette, and manager Scooter Braun. His mentor Usher and rumored girlfriend, model Chantel Jeffries, were also in attendance.
