A Snapchat clip from Justin Bieber and Niall Horan’s get-together with Cody Simpson gets fans talking

Justin Bieber and Niall Horan enjoyed some downtime together in Los Angeles over the weekend but their casual get-together soon caused controversy.

The boys had a jamming session with fellow popster Cody Simpson whilst hanging out and it was captured in a short clip on Cody’s Snapchat account, but many fans quickly noticed a suspicious-looking pipe on the table in front of the group.

A yellow implement – resembling a pipe used to smoke weed – can clearly be seen in the video which shows Cody, 18, playing his guitar as Justin, 21, sings the tune Home To Mama and Niall, also 21, perches on the end of the sofa and stares blankly ahead.

There is nothing to suggest that the guys had been using drugs, however.

Alongside the pipe on the table is what looks like a CD, some remote controls and a bottle of water.

Earlier in the evening Niall had been seen going out in LA with Justin and Cody and other male pals. Justin even took a photo of Niall with some eager One Direction fans who were clearly keen to get a picture.

The famous friends seemed to have a great night together and happily posed for a snap posted on Cody’s Instagram.

‘crewing,’ the Aussie star captioned the shot.

Justin Bieber also took to Twitter to tell the boys how much fun he’d had.

Meanwhile Niall has kept quiet about the evening but posted a message earlier today to tell fans that he’s not registered with the photo-sharing app Shots, a site used by Justin.

The One Direction star – who is currently touring the US with the group – has certainly been making the most of his time in America. As well as spending time with Justin Bieber he’s also hung out with other celeb mates including British footballer Steven Gerrard.

‘Great laugh on the golf course today with our Steven … Buzzin larrrrr !’ Niall posted with a picture of him and Stevie G indulging in a spot of golf.

Tonight Niall will be back on touring duties as 1D are set to play Edmonton in Canada tonight.
