The American rapper is renowned for throwing lavish parties. When he turned 40 in 2009 he invited 500 friends and family members to celebrate at New York’s Plaza Hotel, where attractions included a $30,000 orchid display. He also splashed out on a party in a nightclub for his son Justin’s 16th birthday last year, where Lil’ Kim, Trey Songz and Fabolous all performed and Justin was presented with a $360,000 car.
The star attended a party to celebrate his pal Rick Ross’s birthday in Miami last weekend, with Pharrell Williams and Busta Rymes also in attendance.
Diddy and Ross performed at the event, and are said to have lavished the crowd with bills, totalling around $1 million.
The party was held at strip club King of Diamonds, and was a lavish affair from the off with Ross arriving in a private helicopter.
“It just feel good to be in my hometown repping with the city. Just expect the hood to have a good time that’s all it’s about. We just gone do what we do, sip a lil somethin’…smoke a lil somethin’…represent Maybach Music,” Ross told NBC Nitecap with Peter Bailey when asked what he was planning for the evening.
Diddy has given an insight into the planning which goes into his famous soirees on his MTV Show. He is seen giving orders to party planners who are trying to come up with ideas for the perfect night.
“You need to get strawberries and put some marmalade in some yoghurt. Get some bellinis. Tell the guys they can’t come and invite six pretty girls,” he says.
