Justin Bieber ‘put students at risk’ when he gatecrashed a high school prom this weekend, it has been claimed.
Officials at Chatsworth Charter High said the 21-year-old and his entourage physically barged his way into the event on at Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood on Saturday night, according to TMZ.
‘His entourage pushed past the school’s security to gain access to the dance floor,’ an LA Unified School District rep told the site, adding that administrators were worried they might lose control of the crowd.
The school said it was aware the singer was recording on the lot at the time but had been ‘assured that he would not come out to interfere’.
Justin’s rep however said that nobody tried to stop him when he entered after being invited in by some students he met on the lot.
‘It’s unfortunate they’re trying to make this a negative thing,’ they told TMZ. ‘It was awesome for all the kids.’
The schools admitted it was a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ for the teens, but added its main concern was for their safety.
Indeed one person who was not complaining was the school’s newest Prom Queen, who got to dance with the pop heartthrob not long after receiving her crown.
The giddy teenagers couldn’t quite ‘Belieb’ it when the Baby singer arrived unannounced, before he was inevitably mobbed by screaming, camera phone-wielding prom-goers.
At the age of 16, Justin Bieber was already a multi-million selling pop phenomenon after being discovered on YouTube in his early teens.
So it wasn’t clear who the evening was more enjoyable for when he was surrounded by glamorously-clad students, who were most certainly in the mood to party.
Still in a state of disbelief, the Prom Queen, going by username Princess Potato, boasted on Instagram alongside her picture with the superstar: ‘I DANCED WITH @justinbieber AT MY PROM ????’
Pop heart-throb Justin was accompanied by a burly bodyguard as he grabbed a morning-after McDonald’s on Sunday.
His high-altitude trip came just several hours after living vicariously through the high school students, but he was soon back to showbiz early the next morning.
The singer was accompanied to the school by friend and rumoured love interest Hailey Baldwin, her pal Gabby Westbrook, and songwriter and producer Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd.
Hailey, who was reportedly accompanying Justin to a nearby recording studio before spontaneously deciding to go to the prom, tweeted: ‘I found a prom and @gabbywestbrook was my prom date.’
And the Baby singer later admitted he had fulfilled a long-held ambition to go to a traditional prom.
The school’s official account tweeted: ‘Justin Bieber showing up at our prom? I think we know who had the best prom this year #cchsprom.’
The star soon replied: ‘Always wanted to go to prom. Thanks for having me. #promcrasher.’
The ‘Beauty and a Beat’ star also retweeted a number of excited postings from students in attendance, one of which read: ‘THANK YOU @justinbieber FOR THE BEST PROM (sic).’
The following day, as Justin headed off for his flight, he was seen sipping a beverage from McDonald’s as he made his way through the busy terminal and headed to the security checkpoint.
Dressed in a grey T-shirt and navy basketball shorts, he tossed away the remainder of his refreshment before getting checked over and strolling to the boarding gate with his bodyguard in tow.
