Rap Daily: Sean "Diddy" Combs attempt to take a helicopter from his concert in New York on Friday (April 22nd), to an after party in New Jersey, was halted by the FAA.
The New York Post reports that Combs was supposed to hit Club 4 Sixty 6 in West Orange after his show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, but use of the club's helipad wasn't cleared in time.
Instead, Combs received a three-car police escort from the NYPD and police officers in
A source to the The Post that Diddy was driven "like a head of state" in his Bentley, with police in the front and three SUV's tailing the rap star/mogul.
"This happened last-minute. I organized the police escort through my contacts," said John Mahdessian, the owner of Madam Paulette, a high-end couture dry-cleaning service. "There were three squad cars with the lights flashing. I went along also. We were at the club in New Jersey within 15 minutes."
According to the New York Post, police escorts are not usually offered to private citizens.
