If you thought the Queen of Rap was taking sides in the Birdman/Lil Wayne beef, think again! Over the grammy weekend, Nicki Minaj hosted a party at 1Oak in West Hollywood, in which the Cash Money CEO was not permitted into the club.
According to Vibe, Birdman showed up to Nicki’s pre-grammy party Saturday night at 1Oak at 1:45am and the club closed at 2:00am.
In a video from TMZ, you can see Birdman and his crew trying to enter the club while security guards shout, “NO!” Then officers came to the scene to ensure there wouldn’t be any confrontation.
Ouch – to arrive with a big crew only to have to go home is embarrassing!
Anyway, after rumors began to circle that Nicki didn’t let Birdman due to the feud and that she was on Weezy’s side, she released a statement saying she did not take sides and she did not diss Birdman (TMZ).
According to sources close to Nicki, Birdman’s denied access was due to his bad timing and showing to the club 15 minutes before closing.
Although Birdman arrived 15 minutes before the club was set to close he and his posse were looking to order bottle service and that was a no go. Additionally, Nicki had reportedly already left and the houselights in the club were on.
Well, this seems to be a case of trying to make an entrance except there was no entrance to be made…oop!
At least his denied access wasn’t due to Nicki picking side. She’s remaining neutral in this messy beef.
