Report: Justin Bieber blows wads of cash at Miami strip club


If you haven’t had your dosage of shocking Justin Bieber news for the minute, here you go: The New York Daily News reports that the alleged egg thrower/graffiti artist/wild child literally threw wads of cash away Monday night.

After visiting Mansion, the embattled pop prince visited King of Diamonds strip club celebrating friend Lil Scrappy’s 30th birthday party and was so taken with what he saw that he kept tossing out dough.

“Justin Bieber is at @KOD_miami strip club in Miami and just ordered 75K in dollar bills,” read a post on the North Miami Beach establishment’s Twitter feed.

But that was an exaggeration/PR stunt/all-out lie.

“Justin Bieber didn’t spend $75,000,” said club owner Ricky “Disco Rick” Taylor, during an appearance on The Andy Slater Show Wednesday afternoon on sports radio on WINZ-940 AM.

While Bieber had serious dough to spend, he didn’t use singles but hundreds. So it was all about the Benjamins.

“First of all, he stayed for an hour,” continued Taylor. “If he dropped $75K, he’d have been here for three or four hours.”

JB may have blended into the crowd as he was as topless as the talent, as evidenced by the young man’s Instagram photo. Granted, he has great abs, but with all he’s got going on, perhaps laying low would be a better option. Mom, where are you? Maybe busy on her book tour.

The front row

As the insider expression goes: When Ken Downing speaks, the fashion industry listens. See what all the fuss is about yourself at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday when Neiman Marcus’ famed fashion director appears at the Bal Harbour NM store, in Fine Apparel, Level 2. Light bites and refreshments will be served as the British style-influencer hosts a runway show. RSVP: 305-993-4612.

Power lunch

Spotted at Bokamper’s in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday: Adam Sandler, who lunched with his elderly mom (seen in a wheelchair) and the family of his wife Jackie Titone, who live in the area. Gossip Extra reports the Big Daddy star couldn’t sit still, hovering over the table for most of the meal.
