Justin Bieber’s most recent scandal involved the pop star’s arrest in Miami Beach, Florida early Thursday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, drag racing and driving with an expired license.

Ford also made headlines this week after separate videos  of him appeared online drunkenly swearing in Jamaican patois and meeting with Alexander “Sandro” lisi, an alleged drug dealer.

Ford admitted to drinking Monday night, calling it “a minor setback.” This despite the fact he swore off drinking after revealing he smoked crack cocaine.

Bieber has his own controversial video where the 19-year-old singer can be seen peeing in a mop bucket at a New York City nightclub and is later seen spraying cleaning fluid on a photo of former U.S. president Bill Clinton and saying: “F*** Bill Clinton.”
