Police stormed BEYONCE KNOWLES' star-studded rooftop birthday party in New York on Saturday night (04SEP04), following complaints from locals.

The pop princess and 100 guests including boyfriend Jay-Z, Naomi Campbell, and the OLSEN twins were left disappointed after cops shut down the white-themed bash on top of the Big Soho House Hotel to celebrate her 23rd birthday.

A source says, "They were having a great time - it must have been a wild night."

But rapper Jay-Z, who paid for the party, made up for the upset by arranging a follow-up night at the Big Apple's Marquee club last night (05SEP04).
