Canadian pop star Justin Bieber and his entourage were asked to leave the Mayan archaeological site of Tulum after he apparently tried to climb onto or among the ruins, a Mexican official said Friday.
The official of the National Institute of Anthropology and History spoke on condition of anonymity. Bieber was visiting the seaside ruins on Thursday when the incident occurred.
The official could not specify which of the site's structures Bieber allegedly had climbed, but said he was "asked to leave." Visitors can climb some pre-Hispanic pyramids in Mexico, but officials rope off or place 'no entry' signs on some ruins that are considered vulnerable or unstable.

HBO is nearing a deal to bring "Game of Thrones" back for Seasons 7 and 8, the pay-TV service's president, Michael Lombardo, said at the Television Critics Association media tour in Pasadena, Calif. The network also confirmed that the fantasy series (which won a record-setting 12 Emmys in September, including the prize for drama) will return for its sixth season on April 26. The future of the series — and just how long it will run — is on the minds of many fans this week, following the announcement that author George R.R. Martin has missed yet another deadline for "The Winds of Winter," the next installment in the book series on which the show is based.

His label set the trends for such stars as Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, who admired the designer's groundbreaking geometry, plastic miniskirts, space-age silhouettes and futuristic textiles.
