Rapper Ludacris' post-Grammy Awards party was such a hot ticket even his own mother had trouble getting in.
The Grammy Award winner staged a glitzy bash at the Social Hollywood club late on Sunday (11FEB07) and asked Queen Latifah to host it.
But he had no idea it would be the party that all his peers would want to get to, and his mother, who arrived late, had to fight to get in.
One reveller says, "The bodyguards were refusing entrance to everyone - even people who had the necessary blue VIP wristband. It seems the place filled to capacity pretty quickly.
"Then there was this one lady who kept loudly protesting that she and three friends had to get past security, into the party and up to the VIP area.
"There was a little fuss and then the bouncer let her and her friends in as everyone else protested. The bouncer then explained the woman was Ludacris' mother."
Among the stars who made it into the party and got to hang with the rapper, his mother and Queen Latifah were Kanye West, NE-YO, Busta Rhymes, KEVIN FEDERLINE, Nick Lachey, Chris Tucker and Quentin Tarantino.
