Justin Bieber crashed Drake Bell’s album release party on April 17, stealing the attention of his fans, and reigniting the long-standing feud between the two singers.
Drake Bell, 27, never saw it coming until it was too late. Justin Bieber’s Sprinter van had already pulled up in front of Mixology at the Grove in Los Angeles, where Drake’s album release party was taking place. Justin rolled down the window and the crowd went bananas.

Justin successfully stole the spotlight from Drake, who has reportedly been harassing the Biebs on Twitter. Justin had never really responded until now, reports TMZ, and man — did he respond in a big way!
The “Boyfriend” singer later posted the video of the crazy “Drake” crowd on Instagram with a caption that read: “So nice seeing my fans at the grove tonight.”
To make matters worse, Justin’s ambush on Drake was apparently premeditated.
“The whole reason for Justin being at the Grove and The Whisper Lounge the other day was to set up the incident he did with Drake Bell,” a source reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The Whisper Lounge and Mixology are basically 50 yards or closer from each other. So he was getting the lay of the land and seeing what would be the best place to set up his party crashing incident.”
“There was no other reason Justin would go to the Grove since it is tourist central,” the source explains. “He learned about the Drake Bell event and wanted to make a scene and that is exactly what happened.”

These two have been battling each other relentlessly. After Justin’s Jan. 23 DUI arrest it was Drake who spearheaded a petition to get the singer deported.
“Become part of the movement!!!,” Drake said, after posting to Twitter a link to a “We the People” petition. The petition was created following Justin’s arrest and encouraged President Obama to have the Biebs deported back to his native Canada.
“I don’t think a lot of these young people have to work very hard. They’re found on YouTube and boom — thrown into the studio — so they think they can get anything they want,” Drake said.
