Justin Bieber has posted a controversial picture on Instagram on Sunday where he is seen in a compromising position with a woman. The picture, which seems to be photoshopped, appeared to hint at his new friendship with Kourtney Kardashian.

In the picture, the Canadian singer is seen standing against his back towards the camera with a black Audi car in the background. He appears to lean against a woman (whose face is not seen) in a compromising position. "Lord knows," he captioned the picture.

According to US Weekly, the picture seems to be taking a dig at Kourtney's ex Scott Disick, who calls himself by the title, “Lord.” The picture seems to be taken recently given the fact that Bieber's most recent neck tattoo is also visible in it. There has been speculation in the media that Kourtney and Bieber are in a flirtatious relationship with each other.

The website also reports that Kourtney was spotted with the “What Do You Mean?” singer at the Nice Guy restaurant in Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 11. An eyewitness told the website that they have fun in each other's company.

"Every time Kourtney and Justin are together they're extremely flirtatious," a source told the website. "They text each other all the time."

After meeting at the Nice Guy restaurant, the 36-year-old reality star then went to The Montage, a hotel in the Beverly Hills, which is often frequented by Bieber. TMZ also reports that the mother of three, who split from Disick, 32, in July, did not leave the hotel until early morning and stayed there all night.

This is not the first time Kourtney and Bieber were seen together. The sister of Kim Kardashian also met with Bieber in October at the same restaurant during the Halloween Horror Nights attraction and was also invited to his American Music Awards afterparty in November.

Bieber's friendship with the Kardashian-Jenner clan is not new. He is often seen going on dates with model Kendall Jenner and has also been photographed babysitting Kourtney and Scott’s three children-- Mason, 6, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 1.
