Over the weekend, superstar Justin Bieber had big plans to celebrate his 19th birthday with a circus themed party at London’s Cirque du Soir. For most Canadians, turning 19 is a big thing because it’s the year they would legally get to drink. So, you would imagine that by throwing a big party which includes a lot of alcohol and a guest list of fellow teen celebrities, the night would end up with Justin Bieber getting drunk, tipsily swagging the night away, and then puking in a random bush somewhere.
But it was not to be.
Minutes after the party began, it came to an end. Justin took it to Twitter to say:
Worst birthday? What happened?
Word has it that Justin’s big day was ruined after a confrontation between his entourage and the club’s security. Sure, he spent tens of thousands for the celebration in the company of friends like Ella-Paige Roberts-Clarke (his rumoured new girlfriend) and Jaden Smith. Both Ella-Paige and Jaden were underage – Ella-Paige is 17 years old whereas Jaden is only 14 years old. The club’s security guards reportedly refused to allow the underaged guests of Justin into the club.
They were under the UK’s legal drinking age limit of 18, anyway. Justin Bieber, along with his entourage, then left the club, stopping off at a McDonald’s before returning back to their hotel.
Soon after, a spokesperson for London’s Cirque du Soir released the following statement:
We, like all clubs in London, operate a strict age policy. As a few of the members of the party were under the suitable age of 18, the security team at Cirque Du Soir, London, clearly explained this rule and refused entry to the club for anyone who could not provide us with adequate proof of age. Justin Bieber visits Cirque Du Soir regularly, and he and his friends are always welcome, as long the members of the group are legally old enough to enter the club. This was simply a matter of regulation that we must adhere to.
We are very sorry, and understand it’s his birthday, but our hands are tied with local authorities and rules we need to follow as club to keep our license. We clearly didn’t want to give him the ‘worst birthday.’ He is a friend and previously was always welcomed with open arms.
Yes, no matter how popular or rich you are, the law is still the law. Sucks to be such a young millionaire, huh?
Meanwhile, #BeliebersHatePaparazzi trended on Twitter, with many tweets from Bieber fans aka Beliebers blaming Bieber’s ever present paparazzi for his birthday woes:
