Justin Bieber Pays Away 2013 Brazil Graffiti Lawsuit

Recommended Posts

Money talks.

You're off the hook, Bieber.

Justin Bieber is miles away from his family friendly image of his debut years, but he still has all the money in the world to wipe away some of his dirty past. According to the BBC, the Biebster is off the hook for graffitiing an abandoned builing during a 2013 visit to Brazil.

A Brazilian judge closed his case after the chart-topper paid a fine, making a $6,000 donation to a cancer hospital in Rio de Janeiro. Even though he was 19-years-old at the time and had his bodyguard nearby, the tagging of the abandoned former Hotel National caused quite a stir. O Globo Newspaper, which just so happens to be the country's largest news outlet, published photos of the singer and all hell broke loose. Brazilian authorities even issued a statement after the incident, revealing that the singer had been charged with "defacing a building or urban monument by graffiti or other means." Cases like this mean business in Brazil as defacing buildings is a crime punishable by up to one year in jail or a fine.

Funny thing is this whole debacle could have been avoided since the singer had permission to paint at a nearby sports facility but chose a different location to avoid fans for security reasons. We all live and learn, right?

Do you think Bieber's bad streak is finally a thing of the past? Let us know in Exhale.
