Troubled singer Justin Bieber as turned away from at least four exclusive pre-Super Bowl parties in New York City in the early hours of Sunday morning because club bosses feared he would cause a scandal in their venue.

The “Baby” hitmaker and his entourage were refused entry to his regular hangout, 1OAK nightclub, and he was later turned away from another three pre-Super Bowl events, including Jay Z’s performance at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night Bash at Pier 40.

A source tells the New York Daily News, “While Bieber may be one of the biggest stars in the world, most clubs don’t want the hassle of having him inside anymore. He is radioactive until he stops being so volatile. No one wants the bad press that follows him everywhere he goes.”

Bieber eventually headed to the Leather & Laces bash thrown by models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, where he was seen showing off his skateboarding skills to guests. He was later spotted skateboarding through Times Square with two handlers chasing after him.

The pop star had earlier suffered difficulties when he flew into New Jersey for the sporting event – officials reportedly smelled a strong odor of marijuana and searched Bieber’s plane with sniffer dogs, but no contraband was found.

EXTRA: Deport Justin Bieber

It follows a string of legal woes for the singer, who was arrested for driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence and driving without a valid license in Miami, Florida last month. He is due in court on Feb. 14. He has also been charged with assaulting a limousine driver and is due in court on that charge in March.
