Hollywood’s most exclusive private club, San Vicente Bungalows, is cracking down on leaks from its cozy walls – after a guest dared to tip photographers that Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin were in the hot spot last week.
The club, by Sunset Tower guru Jeff Klein, rewards privacy with strict rules against cell phones, photos and the like. The club’s newsletter in April revealed that it had to “end” a member blabbering on about Biebs.
Along with a photo of the pop star and his wife leaving the property, the newsletter warned: “The photo below was circulated online earlier this week. In less than 24 hours, our team discovered whose guest was responsible for alerting the paparazzi. The member who brought this guest to our club is now closed. ”
Reports with photos of the star couple leaving the club went viral online – with Vogue gushing, “Justin and Hailey Bieber had a little romantic date night at San Vicente Bungalows.”
The club’s new newsletter, seen by Page Six, also warned that when Hollywood insiders set the course more: “We wanted to take a moment to remind you of the following club guidelines, which we take very seriously: No photography / videography of any kind is allowed in the club premises or surrounding areas, ”and“ No posts on social media or discussions about the club, its members and their guests or club activities are allowed. ”
The update also warned: “We not only hold you accountable for these rules, but we hold you, the member, accountable to your guests who follow the rules. If a member’s guest does not comply with the club’s policy, the member’s membership is subject to suspension or termination upon review. ”
We reported in 2019 that a club member was banned for leaking that Steven Spielberg and Netflix boss Ted Sarandos were seen meeting on the spot, which at the time indicated that the power players had smoothed out a public battle over rules governing Oscar qualifying.
A showbiz pro told us at the time of the club: “It’s very difficult to get in – but easy to get kicked out.”
