PULLING RANK Jay-Z, Lonsdale (inset)
It seems Tamsin Lonsdale, founder of the supposedly exclusive social-networking service for supposedly talented and influential members The Supper Club, doesn't carry much sway as a hostess. A week after the Observer reported that the Club is little more than the British entrepreneur's attempt to build a network for the "bridge-and-tunnel crowd," the paper now claims that Lonsdale and her guests were recently forcibly removed from the Spotted Pig's exclusive third floor to make way for Jay-Z and girlfriend Beyoncé.
According to an eyewitness, Lonsdale and her crew were asked by the restaurant's staff to vacate the premises to make way for Hov (a Pig investor) and his lady, who were waiting patiently on the first floor for the space upstairs to empty out. After failing to heed the request, the rapper's bald, six foot seven inch Dutch bodyguard reportedly approached Lonsdale, lifted her into the air, and threw her out as she screamed "Do you know who I am?" The rest of her entitled posse quickly followed suit.
