Coloured past of a teen star Bieber

JUSTIN Bieber's arrest on suspicion of drink-driving in Miami is not the teenage pop star's first brush with controversy.

Here is a run-down of his recent troubles:

* July 2013 – Bieber is pictured spitting towards fans from a hotel balcony in Toronto.

* May 2013 – The pop star is told to pay several thousand euros for his pet monkey's stay at a Munich animal shelter after it was seized by German authorities for not having the proper paperwork.

* April 2013 – He finds himself at the centre of controversy after leaving a message in a guestbook at the Anne Frank Museum, saying he hoped the Holocaust victim would have been a fan. He wrote: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

* March 2013 – Bieber is filmed lashing out at a photographer in the street outside his London hotel during the UK leg of his tour. Days earlier he had posted a picture of himself online lying in a hospital bed after he had to take a break mid-song as he struggled to breathe. Another of the shows, at London's O2, started so late many young fans had to miss most of it to get home.
