The singer recently celebrated his 19th birthday on March 1 with a night out in London that did not end well. The singer Tweeted it was his "worst birthday" but later deleted the Tweet. The rumors for his worst birthday included explanations like people within his group getting into an argument and the singer's attempt to get 14-year-old friend Jaden Smith (son of actor Will Smith) into the 18-and-over night club Cirque du Soir in London. However, the singer explained his "worst birthday" comment in a post on his Instagram account on March 3 which said, "The funny moment when people believe I brought underage people to a club.. U think Will is letting his 14 year old in a club, I don't think so.." "2nd I love how the club wanted to give the press another reason to why we didn't stay at their weak [expletive] club so they wouldn't look bad for me walking in and right back out," he added. "I said m 'worst bday' but that was due to dummies pushing over my fans and being overly aggressive. Btw it wasn't the worst bday cuz all my friends from back home flew in I was just mad in the moment."
