Paparazzi-free Atlanta is reportedlyJustin Bieber’s home sweet home.

The newest bad boy of music has been in Atlanta since last week, reports TMZ.com -- where he's been partying with DiddyJermaine Dupri and Rick Ross.

Bieber was seen at the Marietta Ice Center in east Cobb County last week and at metro Zaxby’s, as well as the Phipps Plaza movie theater, says AccessAtlanta.com. The Bieb’s Instagram account has a video clip of the pop star playing hockey with locals in Marietta.

"Back in my second home," he tweeted recently. "Good to be back. Focused on building up positive energy."

Two of Bieber’s musical mentors, Usher and Scooter Braun, are from Atlanta.

A Bieber backlash has been growing recently as he’s had run-ins with police. A petition to deport Bieber, on WhiteHouse.gov, has gathered more than 258,000 signatures of those who want to see the singing sensation return to his native Canada, Patch earlier reported.

This winter Bieber has mostly made headlines for scrapes with police, including an arrest last month in Miami after allegedly drag racing. Court documents said Bieber was under the influence of alcohol, pot and Xanax when police stopped him, CNN reports. The 19-year-old was charged with assault earlier in the year for hitting his limousine driver in Toronto.

And then there was the report that a chartered jet carrying Bieber and his entourage from Canada to New Jersey was so full of marijuana smoke that flight crew members put on oxygen masks, CNN reports.

Brian White February 15, 2014 at 04:54 PM Yet Obama's illegal Kenyan uncle is allowed to live in the Boston area. I could have sworn this story was about Justin Bieber. Suffering from Deranged Obama Syndrome, huh? LOL You need help. Take your meds.

It might be paparazzi free, its not Police-free you freak. And while ur there, why dont you get your driver's license renewed. Make yourself useful. I have a feeling even Atlanta will tire of him very quickly.

This immature KID needs to be sent packing before he kills someone. Canada raised him, let Canada keep him. We have enough homebred selfish, entitled lunatics already.

Don't fret Bieber. You will always have a home in the Seasides on the Jersey Shore. When our local officials are not burning down outdated welfare-ridden boardwalks for FEMA bucks, robbing Army/Navy stores during storm emergencies or gouging tourists with parking tickets for more vacation memories, they walk the boardwalks at night as a street gang handcuffing single defenseless visitors and beating them to a pulp at police headquarters under our Governor's protection program from prosecution. Yes Justin, it's your perfect cover. No one will even know you are here.
