Justin Bieber and his posse have been accused of bribing a female Canadian border official with $10,000 worth of backstage passes in exchange for allowing several people in his entourage with criminal records into the country for his performances.
TMZ confirmed that the officer who accepted the bribe was fired after other members of Bieber’s crew arrived at the border seeking the same treatment. (RELATED: Justin Bieber Used A Wheelchair To Cut Lines At Disneyland)
Canada has a strict border policy that doesn’t allow “criminally inadmissible” individuals cross. It includes those accused of theft, manslaughter, reckless driving, driving under the influence, and drug or controlled substances trafficking.
TMZ said Canada Border Services reportedly sent out a memorandum telling employees not to accept bribes and to report any misconduct.
Bieber was in Toronto as recently as last December for a Maple Leafs game.
