Florida teenager AMBER RIDINGER celebrated her coming-of-age Bat Mitzvah in style on Saturday (12NOV05) by inviting Ja Rule, Ashanti and Omarion to her party.

The wannabe fashion designer's parents paid $500,000 (GBP277,800) to make sure her 13th birthday bash at Miami Beach club THE FORGE was a star-studded affair.

The Inc boss Irv Gotti, who oversees Ja Rule and Ashanti, is a friend of Ridinger's family, and also attended the party where his acts performed.

The guest list also included Playboy playmate Brande Roderick and Nicole Richie's fiance DJ AM, according to MTV News.

Ja Rule joked that it was his first Bat Mitzvah performance: "I'm Uncle Ja. I'm really here just to scare all the little boys, the little 13-year-old bad boys that try to hit on little Amber."
