To recap: much ado resulted when Canada’s biggest export tweeted that his highly anticipated 19th birthday celebrations were the worst ever.
According to Bieber, when he and his friends turned up at London nightclub Cirque Du Soir on March 1 the club’s security manhandled his fans. Once inside, the chaos forced the star to leave the club after only five minutes.
Fast forward to the 19-year-old’s “worst birthday” tweet in the wee hours, and hoards of Beliebers storming Twitter to trend “#BeliebersHatePaparazzi.”
Subsequent media reports had a field day. Most accused Bieber of attempting to get “underage” friends — actor Will Smith’s 14-year-old son Jaden Smith and 17-year-old rumored gal pal Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke — into Cirque Du Soir.
Yet, as most pop culture watchers will already know, Jaden Smith has since said he was nowhere near Cirque and had in fact attended a Kanye West gig that night.
Throw in the new footage — which clearly shows a not impressed Bieber taking a dim view of what he would later describe as a “weak a** club,” before deciding to get out of dodge — and Cirque’s story lacks credibility.
His disastrous birthday preceded a now legendary “rough week” in the British capital. And by legendary, this writer means it’s probably wise not to believe everything you read.
