Rapper Lil Za is 'charged with THREE felonies following the raid on Justin Bieber's mansion'
Justin Bieber's party pal Lil Za has been charged with three felonies, according to TMZ.
The charges are reported to be in connection to the raid on Justin's mansion last week.
TMZ report that the L.A. County D.A. has charged the rapper with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance, and another relating to breaking a jail telephone.
Police made the charges after they had initially been called to Justin's house following the egg attack on his neigbor.
TMZ claim that if found guilty he could face up to nine years in prison.
The rapper was arrested earlier this month when drugs, believed to be Xanax and Ecstasy, were found the posh house in Calabasas, California.
It was claimed the Baby star's handlers, including manager Scooter Braun, decided he had to go after the police raid, and that he had actually already moved on.
But according to TMZ this is not the case, and in fact he has not the slightest intention of leaving and is not being made to live elsewhere.
While Za, real name Xavier Smith, was spotted at a hotel near the singer's house immediately after the arrest, sources say this was because he was visisting his mother.
Meanwhile Justin is still facing charges over the egg attack.
He already faces a charge of driving under the influence after getting caught drag racing in Miami.
Bieber has pleaded not guilty to DUI, resisting arrest without violence and driving without a valid license in the Miami case.
A preliminary toxicology report released Thursday showed that he tested positive for marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. Bieber told police after the arrest that he had been smoking marijuana and had taken a prescription drug, saying that his mother gave him the medication.
