According to the insider, Justin's love affair with the famous compound began on his birthday this past March. The Biebs allegedly celebrated the big 1-7 at the mansion with Hef and his posse of friends. Since then, the teen idol has reportedly been secretly returning to the modern-day palace to party with the bunnies and even watch movies with Hugh.
If this gossip is true, one person who's sure to be ecstatic over Justin's Playboy hook-up is his own father. Earlier this year, Bieber's dad Jeremy tweeted Hugh Hefner asking for a personal invite to the mansion. The legendary magazine publisher must have been paying attention, because soon after he told CNN's Piers Morgan, "Today we got news that Justin and his father want to come to the Mansion." Hefner's then-fiance, Crystal Harris, also added: "I want to meet Justin Bieber. I have Bieber fever. We all do, all the Playmates. We all want to meet him."
At the time, Justin denied having any interest in the Playboy mansion, tweeting: "So Hugh Hefner says the girls have the fever ... interesting. I'm a teenage boy. Come on."
That was nearly a year ago, and Justin has grown up a lot. He's had his first paternity case claim as well as his first serious relationship with Selena Gomez. Could Bieber's stance on Playboy have changed as he's matured? What say you?
