Too young! Clubs deny Justin Bieber entry


Major kudos goes out to the folks at Cavalli Restaurant and Lounge Friday night: They refused entry into the lounge to Justin Bieber and his party of 10 following dinner downstairs because he’s under aged. Word is he also was turned away from LIV, Story and Adore. Chuck E. Cheese, however, would have welcomed him with open arms, we’re told.

Pitbull was seen schmoozing backstage Friday night at Chelsea Handler’s South Beach Comedy Festival show at The Fillmore. Following the meet and greet, he and his entourage sat down in the audience to catch her 11 p.m. show.

Contrary to Kevin Spacey’s reportedly friendly, social behavior at Zuma last week, another spy reports quite the opposite from City Hall The Restaurant, where the House of Cards star lunched solo in a corner-back-against-the-wall table on Friday. “As much as I wanted to say ‘hello and I love House of Cards’ or even just do his signature rap against the tabletop,” says the spy, “his body language said ‘ I vant to be alone.’ Respecting his privacy, other guests and waiters, indeed, let him be alone. Exciting nonetheless!”

Following the double overtime loss to the Timberwolves, Miami Heat player Chris “Birdman” Andersen and his entourage refueled with hamburgers at Rok Brgr. Despite the loss, Andersen is said to have been “relaxed” and “real nice to everyone,” saying the place was his fave burger bar.

NY Giants player Victor Cruz was seen Saturday night, partying at the Delano’s FDR Lounge.

Minnesota Timberwolves player Kevin Love was spotted with his uncle Mike of Beach Boys fame Friday for lunch at Zuma. There for brunch on Sunday was Brooklyn Nets player Jason Collins, sharing his eating through the magic of social media.

Model-actress Molly Sims had dinner Friday at Prime Fish, which was packed Sunday night with New York Knicks players following their loss to the Heat. Seen dining away their losses were Carmelo Anthony with wife La La, Amar’e Stoudemire, Raymond Felton, Shannon Brown and Kenyon Martin.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
