Bieber 'played Xbox in club'

Justin Bieber reportedly hooked up an Xbox and played games at a recent nightclub bash.

The 20-year-old singer was one of many to celebrate Pastor Carl Lentz's birthday at Jay Z's New York City venue 40/40 on Thursday. However, it seems he had a set idea of the kind of entertainment he was after as he apparently arrived with his Xbox console in hand.

The Canadian heartthrob took the console to a private room, where he attached it to a TV and invited guests to play him at games including NBA 2K15 and FIFA.

"Bieber was a lot better at FIFA and came out with one or two victories," an insider told New York Post.

An exact guest list isn't known, although Justin did apparently challenge basketball pro Iman Shumpert to a game of NBA 2K15, which simulates the sport.

The badboy singer is known to be good friends with Pastor Carl Lentz. Last year he tweeted his appreciation after he attended a service by him, with the pastor renowned for giving his sermons a celebratory feel.

"Amazing sermon at church this morning. Love you man. I broke down today (sic)," he wrote.

Earlier this year he is thought to have turned to the holy man after his string of personal problems. The star was accused of pelting his neighbour's home with eggs and was then arrested for DUI while in Miami. His relationship with Selena Gomez has also been on off and it was reported that he had decided to get some stability in his life by being baptised.

"Justin and his team spent time on Saturday searching for a place with a pool where they could conduct a baptism for him, a cleansing ritual, with the Hillsong Church. But they couldn’t find a place in time," an insider told New York Post in February.

In June Justin was baptised in a bathtub by Carl. Again it coincided with some issues for the star, as videos of him using racist language when he was younger had been released.
