Justin Bieber was reportedly forced to leave a 2016 Brit Awards afterparty when a fight broke out.

The 21-year-old singer was celebrating after an incredible performance at the awards ceremony earlier in the evening on Wednesday, where he also took home the gong for International Male Solo Artist.

He decided to move on from London's O2 Arena to Tape nightclub in the English capital, where stars including Ella Eyre were continuing the evening's festivities, but things apparently didn't get off to the best start.

"He came through a VIP section in Tape at 1.35am and was escorted to a table in the VIP section near club dancers in skimpy underwear," a source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "He was not happy with photos being taken and the lights were dimmed."

A little later, someone inside the VIP group is alleged to have caused a scuffle. Security were forced to step in and that's when Justin is said to have decided to call it a night.

"A man from his VIP group suddenly launched at someone from outside the group, which was protected by security," the insider continued. "Bieber looked fuming and the whole thing descended into chaos. Everyone was pushing and shoving. The man was dragged inside and everyone was pushed out.

"Security got involved and managed to break it up. Bieber tried to carry on with his night but there was a really tense atmosphere and the club was overcrowded. He then abruptly left out of the back door."

Earlier in the evening, Justin took to the stage to perform a medley of his hits, much to the delight of the audience at the O2. He kicked things off with Love Yourself, for which fellow award winner James Bay played the guitar, before moving onto Sorry, accompanied by scantily clad dancers and fire.
