Justin Bieber - Carmen Ortega: Justin could have a meltdown
Justin Bieber's new friend Carmen Ortega believes the 19-year-old singer could be heading for a meltdown like Britney Spears and Amanda Bynes after he was arrested last week.
The 19-year-old singer was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license, drag-racing and resisting arrest last week, but the brunette model believes his entourage are to blame for leading him astray and she fears the consequences will be ''severe''.
Speaking to the MailOnline, Carmen said: ''I feel like he doesn't have good people around him. I fear for him, of course, if he doesn't make the right choices, it can lead to bad things.
''Look at Britney, or Amanda Bynes, or even worse Michael Jackson. He could end up dead. He needs to be near his family or the consequences could be severe.
''This episode is really messing him up, it's so difficult right now to be Justin Bieber as he's surrounded by people who are giving him bad advice and egging him on to do crazy things. He's a sweet kid, but he's alienating his whole family.''
Meanwhile, the stunning model believes the Justin - who is allegedly dabbling in drugs - needs to seek therapy in rehab before it's too late.
She explained: ''I think rehab would be so good for him. He needs help. He needs therapy. As someone who knows Justin, I'm asking his management or mum to intervene now before it's too late.''
The 'Believe' hitmaker is currently in Panama, where it is believed his manager Scooter and mentor Usher are trying to persuade him to seek professional help.
