The presence of Rihanna and her bestie Melissa Forde allegedly prevented Karrueche Tran from entering Pink Elephant nightclub in NYC this past weekend.

Page Six writes:

Spies said Tran didn’t make it past Pink Elephant’s velvet rope last week, because, her rep explained: “she was told she could [not] attend said club, because Rihanna was inside. [She] decided to go elsewhere.”

A rep for Roee Nahmani’s hot spot added, “She wasn’t let in as a courtesy to Rihanna. To keep the peace, they decided it was in everybody’s best interest if they weren’t on the dance floor at the same time.”

Could this explain Melissa’s not-so-subtle Instagram posts? We think so.
