In January 2014, Bieber was charged with driving under the influence in Miami, a case he settled in August by pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest.
And he is on probation for a vandalism conviction that resulted from egging a neighbor's home. In June, the pop star was plagued by the emergence of videos of himself as a young teen using racially offensive language.
In April, Bieber's antics prompted an online petition to have him deported from the country.
The petition was hosted on the White House's website and received more than 273,000 signatures.
Drug-sniffing dogs were used to search the plane, according to one of the sources, but no sign of drugs were detected and no illegal substances were found. Bieber turned himself in at a Toronto police station on January 29, 2014, facing an assault charge stemming from an encounter with a limousine driver in December.
But the charge was dropped in September after prosecutors decided there was "no reasonable prospect" of convicting Bieber of striking his limo driver on the back of his head, said Brendan Crawley, a spokesman for the Ontario attorney general's office.
While on tour in early November 2013, Bieber yet again made headlines, this time with some sex-related scandal.
Not happy: It's reported that Lamar Odom, left in 2012, has 'issues' with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian dating basketball player James Harden, right attending Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday party together Sunday.
As part of a plea deal, Bieber was sentenced to two years' probation.
He was also ordered to complete 12 weekly anger management sessions, work five days of community labor and pay ,900 in restitution to his former neighbor.
On January 23, 2014, Bieber was arrested on suspicion of DUI and drag racing, according to police in Miami Beach, Florida.
Bieber, seen here with model Chantel Jeffries the night before his arrest, eventually pleaded guilty of careless driving and resisting arrest.
