Update 1: After a tabloid report claimed David Arquette was forcibly kicked out from Justin Bieber’s 21st birthday party in Las Vegas early Sunday morning after he allegedly tried to fight the singer, a Bieber insider has since told Gossip Cop that “There was no altercation” adding that Arquette was “not violent” and “never tried to fight Justin.”
The source clarified that Arquette was turned away from Bieber’s after-party and “escorted out because he was way too drunk.” However, the insider did not refute the allegation that the actor trash-talked Bieber.
In a later report, E! News wrote, “Justin wanted David to leave because he wanted to have a private party with his close friends. This was in his suite after the nightclub appearance,” a source reportedly told the outlet. “And while he likes David, David is not part of Justin’s inner circle and so David was asked to leave, which he did.”
“There was no altercation,” the insider added. “It was simply that Justin wanted to be with his close friends. He had had a long day and just wanted to be low-key and relax.”
The allegation that Arquette was heard slamming Bieber is not specifically refuted in E!’s report.
David Arquette was reportedly kicked out of Justin Bieber’s 21st birthday celebrations in Las Vegas after bad-mouthing the superstar at his after-party that went on until around 7 a.m. on Sunday morning.
The 43-year-old actor and club investor was one of the guests at the Biebs’ private bash, held at the spectacular rooftop villa in the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace. Earlier, the Biebs hosted his milestone event at the Omnia club inside the famed casino and hotel, for which he was paid a stonking $500,000 by the Hakkasan Group.
A source confided to the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column that Arquette, was “pretty messed up” by the time the after-party began in Justin’s suite, and was reportedly heard “talking about Bieber behind his back.”
Described by the column as having “seen the inside of more club bathrooms than Paris Hilton,” Arquette’s reported slams of the Canadian star reportedly got back to the singer, who then had the actor thrown out of his party.
The source added, “Justin heard what David had been saying, and threw him out of his suite with the help of a friend, because they didn’t have security up there. Somehow David managed to get back in and rushed at Bieber to take him out. There was a confrontation, then other people got in the way to separate them. David was thrown out again, this time for good.”
So far, neither Bieber or Arquette’s reps have commented on the incident. Arquette is a partner in Hollywood club Bootsy Bellows with the h.wood Group, which was bought last year by the Hakkasan Group, which owns Omnia.
Arquette is an investor in Heart of Omnia, the exclusive smaller area where Bieber partied inside the larger Omnia nightclub.
The 21-year-old singer jetted to Las Vegas after wrapping his reportedly riotous and brutal Comedy Central roast at the Sony Studios lot in Culver City, California on Saturday.
Justin was joined in Sin City by a group of pals including, manager Scooter Braun, Allison Kaye, longtime friends Ryan Butler and Ryan Good, Shots apps co-founder John Shahidi and deejay Tay James and others.
After walking a red carpet thronged by paparazzi, press and tons of screaming fans, when he reportedly arrived at Omnia just after 1 a.m., Justin headed to the main part of the club. Specifically, the DJ booth.
There, he introduced acclaimed house music DJ Martin Garrix — who is also managed by Braun — and had some fun with an attentive crowd.
“He was in great spirits,” a source said of Justin to E! News. “He was having a great time with his friends…He looked good.”
“Who’s drunk tonight?” Justin enquired, before introducing Garrix to the audience, People reports. “Where are all my single ladies tonight?” he added, followed by, “Where are all the dudes trying to get some single ladies tonight?”
On the night, the singer was presented with a birthday cake shaped like his recently gifted black 1965 Lincoln Continental. As confetti burst around him, Justin jokingly swapped the numbers on the cake to make “12” instead of “21.” After which, the hitmaker moved on into the Heart of Omnia lounge in the club, where DJ Ruckus and James worked the decks.

In this exclusive part the nightclub, Justin partied with Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, Miguel, Katharine McPhee, Ashley Benson, Braun and the rest of Team Bieber.
The party-loving singer let off post-roast steam by dancing on a table to a mix of R&B and hip-hop tracks, including his feature on Tyga’s “Wait For A Minute,” an unreleased, original song titled “Supermode,” and his feature on Sage Gemini’s “Gas Pedal.”
To these, the Calvin Klein model got the crowd going with call and answer riffs.
Despite the David Arquette disturbance, Justin tweeted an upbeat message after leaving Omnia at around 4 a.m. on Sunday. “Tonight was one of the best nights ever. Thank you to everyone involved. Thank you,” he wrote.
The singer’s official 21st birthday was on March 1, which he spent on an Caribbean island with friends. Following his well-documented missteps over the past year and a half, Justin apologized to the audience as he has been ever since January.
At one point he said, “I am looking forward to being someone you can all be proud of.”
Justin went on to say, “Someone close to me once said, ‘It’s how you rise from a fall that truly defines you as a man.’ I’m excited for that challenge. And I want to say thank you for taking this journey with me.”
Roast Master host and comic-actor Kevin Hart praised Justin during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night. Of the skewering, Hart said,
“It got a little rough. But I will say this I will say at the end of it, what I love the most and I will say this here, Justin Bieber stood on stage and he gave his rebuttal.”
“And, at the end of it, it was more about him acknowledging all of the stuff that he’s done, saying that he’s now in a different place of life [and] he’s ready to mature and move on. I think that’s such a nice place to do it because it’s like ‘Hey, let me be an adult. Let me be a man now and let me go on with my life.”
