Justin Bieber's 'sombre' religious trip

JUSTIN Bieber took a "sombre" visit to a Jewish centre.  

The 'Baby' hitmaker - whose recent bad behaviour put him trouble with the law - reportedly spent three hours with a rabbi at the Westside Jewish Community Centre in Los Angeles and left the venue in a "quiet and reserved" manner.  

A photographer who was at the centre told X17online.com: "Justin was very sombre. He left the Jewish centre and went for dinner and he wasn't screaming out to fans and being his usual excited self.  

"He was just kind of quiet and reserved."  

The 20-year-old singer - who was raised as a Christian - is believed to have recently given himself a "mission" to learn to spread the word of God.  

Justin has reportedly removed all the "negative influences" in his life, including certain friends, alcohol and drugs, so he can follow a more religious path.  

As part of his "mission", he is spending two weeks with a pastor in Rancho Mirage near Palm Springs, California, according to reports.  

Recently, sources revealed that Justin turned to religion, following his split from on-and-off girlfriend, 22-year-old Selena Gomez.  

The insider said: "Those close to Justin were concerned and reached out to the one person he always listens to and really looks up to, his pastor, Carl Lentz.  

"Justin was all for it. There was no resistance on his part to go away for a couple of weeks for alone time, God time and some spiritual growth time."
