Nicki Minaj was rejected at the door to her own party.

Nicki Minaj was turned away from her own album release launch party Tuesday night in New York.

A source familiar with the incident told The Huffington Post that the 29-year-old "Starships" singer was scheduled to attend the event but was denied entry from Greenhouse club when she rolled up with her boyfriend and a hefty entourage of 25 people at 3:30 a.m. Incidentally, the downtown hot spot is also owned by the same folks who run WIP, the club of choice for Drake-Chris Brown brawls.

"The cops denied [Minaj] access saying the venue was capacity," the insider said. "She tried to celebrate with fans but was turned away at the door."

Minaj released "The Re-Up," a rerelease of her second album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," on Nov. 19. "It’s a little of a different direction from the mainstream, but it’s kind of more in the direction I originally started in," she told Ryan Seacrest about the album on Monday. "I feel like the music is such a better representation of me where I am now as an artist in my career."
