Continuing his liberation-from-the-band bender taking him to Baoli, LIV and SL on Thursday, Joe Jonas, staying in the penthouse suite at The Riviera on South Beach, was seen Friday night at the Mondrian for a party hosted by British singer and part time Mondrian resident Craig David. Afterward, at the ungodly hour of 4 a.m., Jonas and friends stopped by Maxine’s Bistro & Bar at The Catalina Hotel for a late night meal before his early morning flight back to LA. Our spy tells us that while Jonas was nice to fans, he tried to stay under the radar, “politely denying requests for photos and not drinking the entire night.” As for any amorous behavior despite the absence of his model girlfriend, we were told, “There was a girl with him who was a model but not his girlfriend. She was very touchy feely with him and wasn’t happy that there were others hanging out with them in the group.” Jonas was also seen Friday (“breaking news,” quipped a publicist, “Joe Jonas drinks iced tea”) with friends at Bianca at the Delano.

The InterContinental Miami Make-A-Wish Ball Saturday night was a surreal, charitable circus of sorts, drawing out a list of philanthropists, celebrities and reality television types. Among those spotted were former governor turned gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Crist; producer/director Brett Ratner; headliner Adam Lambert, whose mix of reggae, rock and old school 80s hits entertained the coutured crowd; the legendary Don King, fashion designer Traver Rains, whose runway show sashayed late into the night; Burn Notice actress Gabrielle Anwar, who conducted the live auction, and Queen of Versailles documentary subjects Jackie and David Siegel, seen trading reality war stories with Lea and Roy Black.
