Justin Bieber allegedly has a rule which ensures he owns the rights to all pictures taken of him at parties.
The 18-year-old singer regularly enjoys a night out and thanks to his A-list status is often snapped by paparazzi and adoring fans.
To keep his antics private, TMZ reports Justin’s people have put guidelines in place, which make it clear all photos taken at parties belong to the star.
“Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ... Justin's people routinely place a sign in places where Justin parties - a sign that says any and all photos taken at the party do NOT belong to the people who took them - they all belong to JB,” the publication reports.
The supposed precautionary measures come after the teenage heartthrob was snapped looking as though he was smoking in a Newport Beach Hotel room.
Insiders told TMZ there was no obvious sign displayed about photographs, as the people who took the pictures didn’t see anything.
The website was also told security are supposed to “manage private situations” such as the one last week, but failed to “do their job” with the incident in question.
Recently sources have shown concern for the young star’s behaviour.
An insider told the New York Daily News Justin does “whatever he wants”.
“This could really damage his reputation if they don’t get it under control. Justin is someone young teens look up to and this kind of behaviour can really hurt his career. Just look at what happened with Britney Spears,” another source added.
