Paris Hilton had to party without her friends after they were turned away from a Miami nightclub.

The sexy socialite arrived at Mansion with dozens of pals to go and watch her rumoured boyfriend DJ Afrojack perform.

Although Paris was waved into the venue without any problem, her friends were told by a security guard they would not be allowed in as they didn't have valid tickets.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''Paris rolled up to the door with five cars and dozens of friends who said, 'We're with Paris.' But the doorman responded, 'No ticket, no entry.' ''

Although her friends were left outside, the 31-year-old blonde - who wore a bathing suit and sunglasses and had styled her hair into pigtails - had a great time inside and was seen dancing and waving a glow stick in the DJ booth.

Paris has been busy in recent weeks laying down songs for her new record.

The star - who hasn't released an album since her 2006 debut 'Paris' - has been in the studio with songwriter Taura Stinson and has been making good progress on her forthcoming album.
