Nicki Minaj ended up snubbing her own album-release party - after a posse of her boyfriend's friends weren't allowed in, according to reports.
The US rap star invited along boyfriend Safaree Samuels, who arrived before his girlfriend with a giant entourage of 30 male friends to the Manhattan bash, New York Post's Page Six reported.
When Safaree was only allowed in "with a few friends", he was heard saying that if his posse wasn't coming in, Nicki wasn't either.
When she arrived at SoHo nightclub Greenhouse "she stayed outside in the car, then drove off," a source said.
A club rep was quoted as telling Page Six: "Nicki was in a car outside, and didn't come in because only a portion of her boyfriend's group of 30 was allowed entry. He was trying to bring in too large a party, and therefore Nicki chose not to come in."
Nicki was due to celebrate the release of her latest studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up.
