Entertainer couldn't get around NYPD undercover detail and allegedly 'went nuts.'
*When Sean "Diddy" Combs learned he and his posse would have to be searched for weapons upon entering a New York club Monday night, the mogul reportedly decided to take his friends and go elsewhere, according to the New York Post.
As the story goes, Diddy was tapped to co-host a birthday party for DJ Clue at club M2 on West 28th Street Monday night with Kobe Bryant after the historic Knicks/Lakers game in which Bryant scored 61 points.
But the artist had no idea that the New York Police Department had an undercover gun detail searching guests as they came into the club. "Everyone wanted to make sure that the dozens of NBA stars in attendance, including Lamar Odom, Vince Carter and Pau Gasol, would be safe," an insider told the newspaper.
When Diddy arrived at 1:45 a.m. with a six-man entourage, a witness said he "flipped out" when cops asked to search him and his friends. "He went nuts, saying, 'Why are you disrespecting me like this? Why are you doing this to me?' During the commotion, one of his guys slipped away, unsearched, back to the car."
Diddy "stormed off and started to text DJ Clue asking, 'What the [bleep] is going on?' and asked if he could go in the back entrance," the Post reported. When told that the cops would have to search him and his friends there as well, Diddy decided not to attend the party.
Bryant, on the other hand, endured the pat down and stayed until 4 a.m. "He was in the VIP area, where there
were strict orders not to let any women in near him," the Post reported. On his way out, Bryant (who drank water), after ordering two bottles of champagne
for his pals, left the waitresses a $2,000 tip.
