Despite this week's DUI arrest for Lil' Twist, Justin Bieber refuses to throw his crony under the bus. According to TMZ, while Bieber's adult handlers would like Twist out of the picture once and for all, Bieber considers him and fellow rapper and troublemaker Lil' Za "true friends." 

Bieber reportedly resents being surrounded mainly by adults and has no interest in losing two friends who are close to his own age -- no matter how much drama they create in his life.
