"Someone from Justin's team had come earlier in the day and told the club that he would be showing up. The club told him they wouldn't let him in because he's not 21. Bieber came anyways and tried to sneak in through a back door. The Game was on the mic at this point and saw Bieber trying to get in and shouted that Bieber was on his way inside. That's when security saw him and escorted him out immediately. He left right away, he seemed really embarrassed," the insider explained.

The 43-year-old actor battled addictions to booze, Vicodin, methadone and amphetamines during his 10 year stint on the sitcom Friends and Matthew admitted seeing photographs of himself when he was painfully thin in 2001 terrifies him.

I can say, 'Yes, I can help you,'" he explained.
Lindsay Lohan claims her latest trip to rehab is "pointless."
The 26-year-old actress - who began a 90-day court-ordered treatment program at the Betty Ford Center in California on Thursday to avoid jail after pleading ''no contest'' to charges for lying to police about driving during a car crash last June - claims she doesn't have a problem with alcohol or drugs.
"I've never been a huge drinker. I've never woken up in the morning and had a drink. I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. I don't think that's rehab. I've been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time."
The actress - who also claims she has only done cocaine "four or five times" in her life but admits to preferring ecstasy and pot - hopes that her stint in rehab will help her to change people's opinion of her.
