Clubs don't want to pay $45,000 for Diddy after party




It looks like Sean Combs has a pretty high opinion of himself (as if we didn't know), because he's been going around to clubs in Manhattan asking them to host an after party for his show at the Hammerstein Ballroom on his last Train to Paris tour next Friday. All he wants is for the lucky winner to pay him $45,000 to host it. Um, what?

"It's unlikely that (a club) in New York would pay that amount," an unnamed promoter told the New York Post, as if there's some surprise to that. "For that amount of money, Vegas makes sense. That's normal for Vegas. New York doesn't work like that." Especially for a rapper like Diddy, who just doesn't have the pull he did in the mid-'90s.

One place in West Orange, N.J., was actually willing to shell out $25k as a down payment, then the other $20k the night of the event, but Diddy said no when he found out it wasn't in the five boroughs. Good luck finding anyone willing to provide, as the Post notes, his own waitress, 12 bottles of Ciroc, 10 bottles of Moët rose, two bottles of Patron Platinum, five bottles of Hypnotiq and ice that "must be clean," whatever that is.
