Justin Bieber was spotted hanging out with friends in Panama on Saturday morning (25.01.14) after fleeing Miami.
The 'Baby' hitmaker, who was charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in Miami, Florida on Thursday (23.01.14), was spotted walking topless along the beach and went jet-skiing with friends, including his rumoured new flame Chantel Jeffries, in Punta Chame on Saturday morning (25.01.14).
Wearing a pair of bright blue swim shorts, the Canadian star looked relaxed and carefree as he soaked up the sun with the bikini-clad model, who was with him when he was arrested, and two male friends, one of whom appeared to be holding a bucket of beer.
Twitter user Robert Menegoni was among the first to reveal Justin's whereabouts in the early hours of Saturday morning when he tweeted: "Just arrived in Hartford. Slight delay leaving panama due to justin Bieber arriving by surprise. Paparazzi, JB is hiding out in Panama!! (sic)"
The singer is allowed to consume alcohol in the Central American country, where the legal drinking age is 18, three years lower than in the US.
Other fans also posted pictures on Twitter of Justin arriving and speaking to security at immigration control at Tocumen International Airport near Panama City.
The troubled star flew out of Miami on Friday night (24.01.14) after refusing to board a private plane that had been organised to take him back to Los Angeles so he could enter rehab after he was released from jail on Thursday.
His security team were forced to sneak him out the back of his rented mansion in South Beach due to the huge amount of fans waiting to greet him.
Dad blames 'lies of the enemy'
Justin Bieber's dad has blamed the "lies of the enemy" in the wake of his son's arrest for drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in Miami earlier this week.
Justin Bieber's dad has blamed the "lies of the enemy" in the wake of his son's arrest.
Jeremy Bieber was with his son in the early hours of Thursday morning (23.01.14) shortly before he was arrested in Miami, Florida and charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing, but has defended his parenting skills.
He cryptically wrote on Twitter: "I can protect my kids, but I can't protect them from you and your lies. Believe in the truth not in the lies of the enemy. #reallife (sic)"
Jeremy - who is rumoured to have helped bock the road Justin was racing on - also tweeted him and his step brother and sister, Jaxon and Jazmyn, saying simply "love".
However, just a few hours after Justin, 19, was bailed, he was pictured with his father appearing to enjoy a few alcoholic drinks.
Meanwhile, the 'Beauty and a Beat' singer is said to be avoiding his mother, Pattie Mallette, in the wake of his arrest as she is trying to get him to voluntarily check himself into rehab.
A source said: "Justin is not listening to his mother and he's been trying to avoid dealing with her and other people in his camp."
Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, is said to be upset with the singer's actions, but sent him a message of support on Twitter.
He wrote: "@justinbieber love you and i will act in the manner of someone who truly cares.
"Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad. (sic)"
