Justin Bieber's got two more years until he turns 21—and it couldn't come soon enough.

While in Chicago on his Believe tour earlier this week, the hitmaker visited a Windy City nightclub, which was subsequently hit with a violation by authorities for letting him in because he's minor.

A spokesperson for the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection confirmed to E! News that police issued a citation to Bodi Chicago for "admitting and knowingly having underage persons in the establishment."

The "Boyfriend" singer and his entourage managed to gain entry into the hot spot, but soon after cops showed up when someone tipped them off to the teen idol's presence in the 21-and-over club.

The spokesperson added that this is first violation for Bodi and that the establishment would be aware of the citation, which was handed out early Wednesday morning.

The typical fine for such an offense is $1,000 if Bodi be found liable.

No word on when a hearing will take place, but Bieber won't have to appear, the spokesperson added. 

The crooner's camp declined to comment on the matter while a rep for the club denied it was issued a ticket, telling E! News "nobody has been cited."

But Bodi's management wasn't exactly denying Bieber made it inside, which is no surprise given that the club tweeted about him being there.

"Incredible time with @Lilza @justinbieber and @DJTayJames last night at Bodi! Thanks for stopping by!" wrote the club on its Twitter page with a picture of the shirtless wonder himself and two cohorts.

"Its not every night that Justin Bieber shows up!" Bodi's account tweeted shortly after, adding, "Last night was a night for the record books!! What an awesome night!"

This isn't the first time Bieber has been asked to leave a watering hole. Last month, the popster was turned away from Los Angeles' Lure nightclub thanks to his minor status, though as E! News previously reported, that didn't stop him from trying to come in through the back door.

Despite the setback in Chicago, in any case Bieber can always go to Disneyland, as he did with his posse a few days later.

One person that group of buddies may not include is the Biebs' BFF, Lil Twist, who was busted earlier today in Calabasas, Calif. for allegedly driving under the influence of marijuana while behind the wheel of Justin's Fisker Karma.

Bieber meanwhile is doing his best to move on from some other embarrassing headlines.

Not only did he enrage Chicago Blackhawks fans after standing on the team's logo in the Blackhawks locker room recently. But a video surfaced showing him urinating in a mop bucket and spraying cleaning fluid onto a photo of Bill Clinton while dissing the former president. The popster subsequently spoke with Clinton by phone and apologized for his behavior.
