Justin Bieber celebrated turning 17 in true rock 'n' roll style - by throwing an obscene gesture at photographers as they snapped him leaving a restaurant with girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The young couple shared an intimate meal at Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (01Mar11), but sparked rumours the evening did not go as planned when they were later pictured scowling as they left the eaterie.
Now another image from the evening has emerged suggesting Bieber is growing up fast - he's shown sitting in his car and flicking his middle finger at snappers as Gomez shields her face.
And the Baby hitmaker also showed his lack of chivalry - he made Gomez wait outside the Ford sports utility vehicle while he clambered into the driver's seat and opened the door for her from inside.
