The Golden Globe winning actress and singer was referring to a now deleted tweet posted by Justin’s dad Jeremy on Friday which read, ‘@justinbieber what do you feed that thing "#proud daddy.’

Jeremy’s tweet was presumably referring to the nude pictures of his son which where taken while he was vacationing in Bora Bora and published by the New York Daily News earlier this week.

The pictures caused quite the reaction online, but Justin himself is yet to comment. However the singer’s legal team has since circulated a cease and desist letter demanding the photos be taken down from the NYDN site and threatening legal action against anyone who publishes them.
