P Diddy once sat at Sydney airport for a whopping 15 hours all because he didn’t like the colour of his limo, Ian “Dicko” Dickson has claimed.
Ex-Australian Idol judge and record label executive, Dicko, revealed the rapper’s ludicrous demand during a chat withStav, Abby and Matt on Brisbane’s B105.
Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, refused the limo that was sent to him because it was white, according to Dicko.
“And then when we finally sent a black one, he said, ‘I’m not leaving because the stereo system in the limo is not good enough for me to listen to my mixes’,” Dicko said.
“So that idiot sat around the bloody airport for about 15 hours like Tom Hanks in that movie,” he added, referring to 2004 movie The Terminal, in which the star’s character is forced to live in an airport.
Dicko said it was ultimately the sort of nonsense the industry had to deal with.
“I would love to be that famous and that unreasonable, it would be awesome,” he joked.
Radio host Matt was unimpressed with Diddy’s reported behaviour, saying that’s what happens “when no-one tells them that’s not allowed.”
“No one’s given them the tough love to say get out of the aeroplane you idiot and get to the hotel,” he said.
But Dicko wasn’t so keen on pushing back stars like P Diddy.
“I mean it’s a bit scary with P Diddy, all of his security are packing heat so you’re not going to go after them.”
News.com.au has contacted Diddy’s representatives for comment.
It wouldn’t be the craziest claim about Diddy. The former personal chef of the rapper sued the music mogul in 2017 over claims she was forced to work during his “sex parties”.
In court documents obtained by TMZ, Cindy Rueda claimed she was subjected to sexual harassment and denied overtime pay, along with being asked “to prepare and serve entrees and appetisers to him and his guests while Mr Combs and his guests were engaged in or immediately following sexual activity”.
Ms Rueda also claimed in court documents that on at least one occasion, she was summoned by her boss to “serve him a post-coital meal” while he made suggestive comments.
“Mr. Combs was naked and [he] made comments about his body,” she alleged, adding that he asked whether “she was attracted to or liked his naked body”.
The former personal chef sued him for sexual harassment, hostile work environment and a host of other workplace-related claims.
A representative for Diddy at the time dismissed the accusations saying it was a “frivolous lawsuit by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for cause.”
The lawsuit was settled in February 2019.
