Reality star kicked out of nightclub after drunken display

Reality TV star Joey Essex didn't have a great weekend by the sound of things!

The TOWIE party animal is in the US at the moment and went for a night on the tiles in the exclusive 10AK nightclub in West Hollywood. After splashing almost €2,000 on a private table for the night, he was kicked out less than an hour later for being too drunk. Ouch.

An insider told the Sunday Mirror that the star had no problem handing over a wad of cash. "Joey and his friend Jake were up for a big night and they heard it was the place to be so he decided it was a no-brainer to hand over the cash and have his own table," said the source.

"He loved it in there, partying alongside Paris Hilton, but he was politely asked to leave. Eventually he agreed to go but then he spent a while outside trying to get back in."

Joey was later pictured stumbling to the ground on Sunset Boulevard after failed attempts to re-enter the club:

He was also snapped dancing and giving the finger to the photographers.

Joey's apparently in California to scout out locations for a new TV show – but we doubt he got much done this weekend with that hangover!
