Justin Bieber's dad, Jeremy Bieber, isn't such a good influence on his son, according to In Touch Weekly.

This is terrible news and, frankly, hard to believe. What's next -- Lindsay Lohan's parents not influencing her in a positive fashion?

"Jeremy loves his kids more than anything, but he's enabling Justin's partying," former family friend Cory Bernier told the magazine. "When Justin was 18, I saw Jeremy give him (prescription painkiller) Percocet. He said, 'Try one of these, son.' Justin liked the feeling and decided to go four-wheeling after taking it and ended up crashing into a pond."

I can't imagine why this guy is a "former" family friend.

Bernier said that during the years that followed, Justin and Jeremy "would smoke weed and drink together."

"Jeremy loves to party and is being a friend to Justin, not a father," he said. "Justin needs guidance right now. He needs someone who will say 'no' -- not someone who's joining in with him."
