    This just isn't Justin Bieber's week.

    Only days after an old video surfaced featuring the singer using the N-word, a second video showing Bieber using racially offensive language has hit the web.

    In a clip obtained by TMZ, a 14-year-old Bieber parodies his own song "One Less Lonely Girl" by repeatedly using the N-word. "One less lonely n-----/ One less lonely n-----/ One less lonely n-----," the pint-size pop star croons in the video while laughing and smiling. He adds, "If I kill you I'll be part of the KKK."

    The new video footage has caused Bieber's legal team to get involved regarding who exactly leaked the racist clip, "as this is stolen property, plus there has been such a shakedown by this person trying to get a substantial amount from Justin's side," a source tells E! News.

    The new shocking clip is the second to come out this week. After the first racist video surfaced a few days ago, Bieber issued a statement apologizing for his past behavior.

    "As a kid, I didn't understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt," the now 19-year-old said. "I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended. I'm very sorry."

    He went on, "I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what's right. Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I'm grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again…I'm sorry."
