Justin Bieber, in town for the Miami shows of his Purpose tour, was spotted Sunday in Wynwood with Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson. The Biebs was seen jumping out of a black SUV and quickly walking into Wynwood Diner in a long, checkered T-shirt. After a long night at LIV after his first show on Saturday, the pop star wanted nothing more than some scrambled eggs and toast. On Tuesday, Bieber arrived at Seaspice via yacht for a private lunch date with his little brother, Jaxon. After lunch Bieber was seen sunbathing on the yacht’s bow with model Alexandra Rodriguez, who we’re told, ditched her pals to sail off with the pop star, even changing into his clothing after swimming and laying out on the boat’s bow. It must be love. This week, anyway.
Following his show with Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas kicked off Independence Day weekend Friday at Wall Miami. Making an entrance with an entourage of 10 around 1:20 a.m., the Close singer took warm-up shots of Dobel tequila with his posse and looked around the room with his signature brooding gaze as he pretended not to notice people snapping photos of him. While Jonas, says our spy, arrived with a “mysterious blonde,” he was “totally in single mode, handpicking the girls who were allowed to join his group, seen talking to a brunette, telling her he loves Miami’s Latin vibe — and women.” The all grown up youngest Jonas brother drank lots of tequila and then pulled from his pocket a Cuban cigar, tracked down speedily by the club's owners from superstar DJ Kygo, whose managers hand delivered them to the club. The gang left around 3:30 a.m. with six new women in the group.
A motley crew of celebs came out last weekend to celebrate nightlife veteran David Grutman’s birthday. On Sunday afternoon, Kourtney Kardashian was spotted on his boat for an afternoon joyride before heading to Grutman’s Japanese Brickell hot spot Komodo. On Sunday, Bieber hosted his Purpose World Tour after party at Grutman's STORY Nightclub, arriving at 12:30 a.m. and jumping straight on the mic, getting the whole crowd singing happy birthday to his pal before dancing around to several of his tracks and Rihanna's Work. Around 1 a.m. Bieber disappeared for a few minutes only to re-entered the DJ booth with Kardashian, sporting a tight leather mini dress with thigh high lace up Tom Ford boots and seen mouthing the words to Bieber's songs.
The party continued at LIV, hosted by DJ Khaled, and featuring appearances by hip hop star Kent Jones, Lil Wayne, Mack Maine, NY Giants player Odell Beckham Jr., Denver Broncos player Von Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers player Antonio Brown and free agent Darnel Dockett. Khaled performed "I Got the Keys" and Kent Jones performed his hit Don't Mind while Miller and Beckham Jr. danced alongside one another on top of the DJ booth.
