Justin Bieber has been banned from a Vienna nightclub after a violent incident in which his bodyguards reportedly groped several young female fans and broke cameras and cellphones belonging to patrons.

According to the Austrian Times, several young women left the popular Vienna nightclub, Passage, in tears on Saturday night. The club’s manager, Joachim Bankel, confirmed that the Canadian pop star was banned from the club, saying, “Justin Bieber is no longer welcome here.”

The incident took place on Saturday after Bieber performed a sold-out show at Vienna Stadthalle, where a horde of fans had to receive medical treatment for “Bieber Fever.” In total, medics treated 178 fans for lightheadedness at the beginning of the concert, and one fan was even hospitalized overnight for what doctors described as “hysteria” induced by seeing Bieber perform live.

Not only is Bieber’s recent club banning the latest in a string of negative reports about the singer, it’s also not the first time he’s been banned from a nightclub. In February, the Manchester nightclub Sankeys turned the pop star away because of his dance moves. In a statement on its Twitter page, Sankeys posted, “Yes the rumours are true, we turned Justin Bieber away. He shuffles on stage and we can’t be having that in Sankeys now can we.”

Bieber was also turned away from the nightclub London's Cirque Du Soir on his 19th birthday, which he referred to as his “worst” ever, because he reportedly attempted to bring in underage friends.

The news also comes on the heels of several other troubling reports involving Bieber. The musician, who recently split from his longtime girlfriend, Selena Gomez, made headlines last week for allegedly spitting on a fellow resident in his gated community who complained about his reckless driving. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department reportedly now plans to recommend charging Bieber with battery over the incident.

Last week, Bieber’s pet Capuchin monkey was seized and temporarily quarantined by German customs officials because he had failed to obtain the appropriate paperwork for the animal.

The negative publicity prompted Bieber to tell Us Weekly that “The biggest misconception about me is that I’m a bad person.”

“I get upset about that,” he said. “I have a big heart. I want to be a good role model, but some people want me to fail. I’m young and I make mistakes. That’s part of growing up. I mess up sometimes. It’s part of growing up.”

Reps for Bieber declined to comment on the club incident.
