Tyga has responded after Sir Paul McCartney was denied entry into the rapper's Grammy Awards after-party on Monday night.

Footage taken outside the Argyle in Hollywood shows The Beatles star, who was joined by Beck, Woody Harrelson and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, getting turned away on two separate occasions.

Security wasn't having any of it as the group knocked on the door, with Paul heard saying: "How VIP do we gotta get?" Pretty VIP, apparently.

Tyga's now taken to Twitter to say he's not to blame for the Beatles legend being refused entry.

"Why would I deny @PaulMcCartney stop it. He's a legend. I don't control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left," he wrote.

Thankfully, the music legend managed to take it all in good humour, joking to his pals: "We need another hit".

According to reports, after a second failed attempt the trio headed to Hyde for the Republic Records party.And it wasn't just Tyga and his after party causing controversy following the ceremony.

Over in Beverly Hills, The Weeknd's rowdy bash was shut down by police after complaints about noise levels. The singer had a lot to celebrate on Monday night, as he took home two Grammy Awards the day before his 26th birthday. It's not surprising, then, that he hosted a star-studded after party into the early hours at a Beverly Hills mansion following the prestigious ceremony.

However, the bash - which had around 1,000 guests - was reportedly cut short at 1 am when police were called by disgruntled neighbours complaining about the amount of noise being made by the music and huge crowd.

According to TMZ, officers arrived half an hour later, with The Weeknd having to speak to them himself before people were asked to leave the glitzy gathering. The report adds that the singer was "totally cool" with the police, although it took around three hours to clear all the guests from the mansion.
