Diddy turned away from own party

P. Diddy got turned away from his own party last week.

The music mogul – real name Sean Combs - was due to host a bash at New Jersey’s Atlantic City in celebration of Independence Day but was barred from getting into the event because security staff didn’t recognise him.

He tweeted: “The party was so crazy, I couldn’t even get in. Ten thousand people showed up. Damn I was ready to party!”

However, according to one onlooker, the reason the ‘Hello Good Morning’ hitmaker didn’t make it into the bash was not because of the thousands of revellers who descended upon the event, but because the “dopey” doormen had no idea who he was.

The insider told Britain’s The Daily Mirror newspaper: “Some of the doormen were so dopey they didn’t recognise Diddy and refused to let him in – even though he was supposed to entertain the crowd.”

The rapper is known around the globe for his lavish parties.

In November 2009 he spent $3m (€2.3m) on a Garden of Eden-themed 40th birthday party.

Bono, Jay-Z, Nelly and actor Denzel Washington were just some of the 500 guests in attendance at the bash, which was held at New York’s Plaza Hotel.
