Originally on September 6, 2013, Perez Hilton reported that Taylor and Hailee were turned away the night before because the restaurant was packed, and they didn't have reservations.
Later, however, an E! News source denied the report, claiming that "they never even stopped by there."
Regardless of what actually happened, the restaurant was eager to extend a peace offering. As the manager of Gjelina told In Touch Weekly, "We had no idea that they were turned away from Gjelina. Everyone has been talking about it this morning but we were not aware that they had tried to eat here last night or that they were actually turned away.”
The manager also wanted to make it clear that Taylor and Hailee were welcome anytime. “All people are welcome at Gjelina, all the time, period. Taylor and Haliee are welcome here and we would be more happy to serve them."
