Justin Bieber may soon become neighbors with his mentor, Usher, in Atlanta. TMZ reports the singer has shown interest in purchasing a home in the Buckhead district where Usher and rapper Young Jeezy live.
The 16-thousand-square-foot mansion, listed for 10.95 million dollars, has seven bedrooms. Justin has checked out other homes in Atlanta, too. According to TMZ, he’s itching to buy a new abode in the area as quickly as possible.
The website questions the wisdom of Justin owning a home in Georgia. It notes the state’s laws regarding marijuana possession, as well as possession of sizzurp, the beverage made of soda and prescription-strength cough syrup, are more strict than those of California. Justin has been linked to both pot and sizzurp in media reports in the past, though there was never any related legal action taken against him.
It was reported last month that Justin is moving out of his home in Calabasas, California, where he has rubbed some locals the wrong way. In January, he was accused of egging a neighbor’s home, an incident that led to a police search of his residence and the arrest of his friend Lil Za.
