The New York Daily News reports Ja Rule’s arrival to the Island/Def Jam holiday party led to a literal riot after he surrounded himself with members of his entourage and breached police barricades as a shortcut to the door. Guards refused to let Ja in the doors, as one officer explained, “There were too many people in there. If it was Jennifer Lopez, I wouldn’t have let her in. I don’t care who he is.” Partygoers who had stood by for over an hour in the cold, bum-rushed the entrance afterwards, and the paparazzi followed. In the melee, a PR rep broke their toe.
