Justin Bieber on his 19th birthday (Splash News)
After the star tweeted “worst birthday” early Saturday morning, word quickly spread about a confrontation outside London club Cirque Du Soir when Bieber attempted to bring several under-aged people inside. Supposedly amongst that crew was 14-year-old Jaden Smith.
Well, the Biebs insists such stories are based on a ridiculous tale told by the club, and set the record straight on his Instagram.
“The funny moment when people believe I brought underage people to a club,” he wrote beneath an all-black, blank image. “U think Will is letting his 14 year old in a club, I don't think so. 2nd I love how the club wanted to give the press another reason to why we didn't stay at their weak ass club so they wouldn't look bad for me walking in and right back out.”

A club spokesman released a statement to E! Online, 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 … 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."

“I said m (sic) "worst bday" but that was due to dummies pushing over my fans and being overly aggressive,” he said. “Btw it wasn't the worst bday cuz all my friends from back home flew in I was just mad in the moment.”

Speaking of JB’s friends, the lovely, 17-year-old Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke was spotted by photographers leaving Justin’s hotel in the morning wearing the same black dress and red leather jacket as she’d worn the night before. We’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions about that.
