Selena Gomez branded Justin Bieber a "drug addict"

SELENA Gomez apparently branded Justin Bieber a "drug addict", and he sent her explicit photographs in a lengthy text message row.

The singer-and-actress - who is believed to have rekindled her romance with the 'Believe' hitmaker - lashed out at the 19-year-old star in a text message row which saw him send her x-rated nude photographs.

The messages, which were reportedly forwarded from a phone registered to Selena's stepfather, Brian Teefey, to one of her friends, begin with Justin saying: "Baby come on. I love you."

However, his on/off girlfriend responded with a furious attack, writing: "I don't buy that bulls**t any more. I was honest with you and I gave you a second chance. All my friends were right, You're such an a**hole."

Justin replied: "You're all I need right now. I know I can make it right with you."

Selena hit back, writing: "U r a drug addict. U need help."

According to who obtained the messages, Justin then sent a photo of his manhood, writing: "Come on. Don't tell me you don't miss this."

Selena replied: "Stop it. You need to listen to Scooter [Braun, his manager] and go to rehab. U r sick."

The 'Baby' singer - who is being investigated by police over an egging attack on his neighbour's home - then sent another explicit photograph and wrote: ""Rehab? F*ck that! I make that f***er so much money."

Upon receiving the picture, Selena told the star they are "done" and suggested his friend Lil Za - who was arrested last week for drug possession following a police raid on Justin's home over the egging attack - had "taken the fall" for his behaviour.

She wrote: "And how can u let [Lil Za] take the fall or your actions. U need to grow the f**k up. I hope you get jail time. U deserve it at this point."

After the 21-year-old starlet also advised the 'Never Say Never' star to "retire", he appeared to see red and launched a foul-mouthed attack on her.

He wrote: "F**K YOU!!!!! I need to grow up?! HA ok! Enjoy life with OUT ME B***h!!! F**k you. F**k Scooter. F**k all y'all. IAM DONE!

"Can't hear you over my cash, babe! You're only famous cuz of me. You know it. I know. Everybody knows. Bye ... Go f**k someone else. Keep that talentless p***y away from me!"

Meanwhile, it has been claimed there were drugs and drug paraphernalia - including two large cookie jars filled with marijuana - "strewn all over" Justin's mansion when police raided the property.

According to gossip website TMZ, the star also has a "dedicated smoking room" in his house.

However, police didn't seize any of the items because they were primarily looking for video equipment and it is likely a search of jars and other items would have exceeded the remit of their search warrant.
