Uh-oh. Somebody is going to be in biiig trouble!
After Diddy's concert in Manhattan on Friday night, he apparently had attempted to helicopter to New Jersey to make a $75,000 club appearance, but ultimately was grounded by the FAA when the request wasn't cleared in time, and instead was provided with a police escort to get him to where he needed to go!
Unfortunately for him, this should have never happened, as police are not allowed to escort private citizens, and even Mayor Bloomberg is now speaking out as to why the rapper received special treatment!
A source explains:
"Diddy heard his helicopter had not been cleared for landing, and said he wouldn't go to Jersey if he couldn't get there on time. His team spoke to the police, and he was driven — like a head of state — in his Bentley with three SUVs in a convoy, with two police cars in front, lights flashing, and another behind."
However, the Mayor claims that the only way this would have been allowed is if there were a "security issue," and explains:
"The bottom line is the police department should treat everybody exactly the same. If you don't get a police escort, P. Diddy shouldn't. I would assume there was no reason for [the police escort], but I just don't know."
We have a feeling that he's very curious to find out what exactly happened, and it's not going to be pretty!
Seriously - a helicopter OR a police escort? Who the eff does he think he is?!
Either way, we doubt Bloomberg's going to let something like this happen again for quite some time, so we hope Diddy makes proper arrangements in advance from now on to get where he needs to go!
