>> is that legal at 19?

>> yes. in london you can be 18 to drink, 16 to actually have somebody else order you a drink, and 5 to drink at home. i'm not making it up. there was people in his entourage that were under age and were not allowed in the club. justin just tweeted back out if you think will smith would let his 14-year-old son go to a club, you are silly. he is saying that jaden wasn't there.

>> underage kids were. tloo there were some people that weren't 18 years old.

>> so now there's a whole debate. the club is saying we're sorry, but rules are rules.

>> i respect the club for doing that. i really do. there are lots of places he can go and have a drink.

>> what?

>> smell a little bit after about an hour.

>> come on. let's be honest.

>> they're in kansas city to do a charity event.

>> no good deed goes unpunished.

>> actually they got stuck in the elevator. they were there for an hour. eventually they got out, and jesse tweeted thank goodness the firemen in kansas city are cute. apparently a bunch of handsome men got them out. they went then, and everybody -- it was a wonderful night.
