The Cirque Du Soir London, where Justin Bieber planned to spend his 19th birthday, responded to the “Boyfriend's” tweet that he had the “worst birthday.”
As we previously reported, Bieber was slated to enjoy his last teen birthday in London with a Circus themed soiree. However, the evening was cut short when Bieber’s friend Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith, tagged along.
Jaden, who is currently 14 years old, is too young to enjoy the nighttime club scene in London as the age required to enter is 18. The group was turned away after attempting to allow young Jaden in. Now the club is responding to the incident.
A spokesperson for the club spoke with E! News, saying, “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."
Continuing, the spokesperson adds, “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."
According to E!, Bieber is a regular at the London club so the spokesperson felt bad that the singer felt he had the “worst birthday,” saying, "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.”
Bieber reportedly paid $12,000 for the event and his wait staff team wore shirts which read, "Happy Birthday Justin."
