Student Marina Binimeliz was among the guests Justin took back to the house and the Daily Mirror reports the 18-year-old fan as saying: 'There were lots of snacks spread on tables by the pool, on the verandah and in the lounge area.'
Another unnamed fan told website Ego.Globo.com: 'I met him at Zax in a private area and then we went to his house in front of the beach - it was an amazing house. Photos were not allowed in his house, I had to sign a contract.'

She was told not to hug or crowd Justin, but he put his arms around her waist, kissed her on both cheeks and told her she was 'very cute'.
