A club source told E! News that security thought some members of Bieber’s crew looked suspiciously young when they arrived, and were asked to show their ID’s. They were refused entrance because of their age which upset Bieber.
Spokesman: ‘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.
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.”
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.’ The party cost $12,000, slightly less than 8,000 pounds.
Source: ‘I think Justin and his friends had a good time. He had a complete separate area in the club, and most of his guests arrived earlier. He was, of course, not amused that some of his close friends were refused entrance. All the waiters who worked in Justin’s area wore ‘Happy Birthday Justin’ T-shirts.
