Beyonce ‘yelled her head off’ when Diddy got into a fight at VMA after-party

Do NOT fight in front of Beyonce. Do not fight when you’re standing next to Beyonce. There will be no fighting in Beyonce’s presence. Which isn’t the worst rule to have, quite honestly. Beyonce doesn’t need to see that, and no one else does either. But when you’re at a liquor-soaked VMA after-party, isn’t it sort of an obligation that someone, somewhere gets into a fistfight? I think that’s a rule. Well, at this year’s VMAs, it was Diddy and rapper J.Cole who got into it.

Page Six says that Diddy and his girlfriend Cassie were partying in the same room as Beyonce, Leo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell and Justin Timberlake. At one point, rapper J.Cole came over to Diddy and sources say, “J. Cole was saying inappropriate things to Sean Combs and his girlfriend, Cassie. Sean immediately pounced. Some pushing and shoving happened. No punches were thrown, but it was a visible disturbance. A few bottles splashed to the floor and some partygoers were knocked over, falling on top of Renee Graziano from ‘Mob Wives.’ ” The NYDN says Beyonce was “yelling”:

Beyoncé put on quite a show at the VMA after-party Sunday night at the Dream Downtown — screaming her head off when Diddy started a fight that broke out right next to her.

“Diddy got in a fight with someone partying too close to him and his girlfriend” Cassie, one guest tells Confidenti@l. “It was mayhem. Beyoncé was yelling to stop and Jay Z was separating people and getting people away from Bey.”

Our spy adds that the ruckus escalated, then subsided after about 90 seconds of shoving and bottle-breaking at around 1:30 a.m.

“We were all dancing and the fight breaks out, and it happened so quickly and bottles were crashing everywhere, and everyone was screaming. People got pushed into bottles,” another guest tells us. “Then Diddy got up, took the mic and said ‘It’s all cool! Ya’ll keep having fun! It’s no big deal, it’s over.’ ”

Witnessing the brawl were Jamie Foxx, Pharrell,, Russell Simmons and Busta Rhymes, who wisely came with a hulking bodyguard.

Pharrell then made his way next door to No. 8, where he “arrived with an amazing crew of beautiful people,” a spy says, then had a dance-off with Jennifer Hudson.

I kind of love that Jay-Z’s main concern wasn’t that people were fighting, but that people were fighting AROUND BEYONCE. Beyonce must never be touched! Beyonce must never witness violence! Beyonce is Peace, Love and Empowerment. As for the fight… I don’t know who J.Cole is, but it sounds like he was acting like a douche.

    I love J Cole! Diddy and J Cole have both said it’s not true on twitter.

  2. Yelly says:

    Bey is starting to look like a muppet just like Kim K.

  3. aims says:

    I know we all eyeroll at Beyonce at times. But I’m not going to shade Jay-Z for protecting his wife. I think he’s a husband first and foremost around her.

  4. BreeinSEA says:

    Why was it wise that Busta had a bodyguard? Is that necessary? Or does he have a hit on him? Or was the writer saying it because two grown men were being ridiculous and that Busta couldnt hold his own?

  5. HH says:

    I don’t like fights but from all the people mentioned that sounds like a party I want to attend. I wanna be anywhere Pharrell is. And JT in the same room?! Excuse me while I fan myself off.

    J.Cole definitely doesn’t come off as douchey music-wise and puts out radio singles that actually mean something. I’ve never seen or read an interview with him so I can’t judge on that angle. But Diddy can be quite egotistical and maybe took something the wrong way.

  6. Kassandra says:

    J. Cole is a new-ish rapper (to the mainstream anyway) and Cassie is just Diddy’s favorite jump off AT BEST, he is always with other women then when he’s bored goes back to Cassie. So what this shuffle could’ve been about is beyond me, probably just a drunks acting on liquor courage. For some reason I think it’s sweet that Jay Z was keeping people of Beyonce…kind of like that friend that holds your hair back while you puke over the toilet after a night of bad decision making heh

  7. Samtha says:

    Why is the story about Beyonce yelling and not P.Diddy and the other dude acting like fools? If some dipwads were fighting around me, I’d be yelling my ass off too.

  8. coe says:

    I think the best part of this whole “story” is:
    “Pharrell then made his way next door to No. 8, where he “arrived with an amazing crew of beautiful people,” a spy says, then had a dance-off with Jennifer Hudson.” Hahahaha!

  9. aang says:

    How old are all these people? Aren’t they mostly 30 – 40? Last fight I saw I was a teen. And once I hit 23ish I was in bed by 11, every night!

  10. Rachel says:

    If it did happen, I like that JayZ’s concern was keeping people away from Beyonce. I don’t see anything egotistical or narcissistic about that as Kaiser implies. If I was out with my boyfriend and a fight broke out, I know his main concern would be making sure I was safe.

  11. cs says:

    Is it just me.. but isn’t the weave getting longer each week?

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      No silly ~ She is EMPOWERING it to grow super fast….

      • KayLastima says:

        I think that it was valiant for J to protect his wife but why are grown ups fighting – because they are not grown ups and they are walking examples of arrested development.

        I also have a hard time looking at Beyonce ever since the whole “bow down” debacle. Who does she seriously think she is? Kind of showed her hand as a female douche to me. I can’t take her anymore, and I find it hilarious that the reaction to her hair cut was not positive so she immediately “grows” it longer. She doesn’t sound empowered to me if she “bows down” to public opinion that easily.

  12. shelley says:

    The details in this story are so unnecessary . Busta wouldn’t need a bodyguard against any of the rappers named in this story. He could knock them all out with one arm. And there was really no need to mention Beyowulf. She is such a non-entity in this whole story. Now we know Bey can yell and JayZ can pretend to intervene in a scuffle. OK.

    • Max says:

      They say dont engage the haters, it just makes them more thirsty but I have to ask, why would Jay “pretend” to intervene? Especially since pretending would still place when in the line of fire as it were. If he is trying to separate them as reported, he could easily get hurt too.

      In any case Diddy being one of his closest and oldest friends and J Cole being one of his signed artists would be enough motivation to intervene for real. Not to mention that they are doing that shyte next to the mother of his child.

  13. blue marie says:

    I think it’s kinda sweet, but my favorite part was the Pharrell and J-Hud dance off, I would like to have seen that.. (also, I think all fights should end in a dance off)

  14. Sisi says:

    eh. Beyonce and Jay-Z sound like the normal ones in this story. And I kind of have to laugh that diddy thinks he’s at the top of the food chain, but Beyonce can yell at him. Beyonce > Diddy and he knows it.

  15. Saffie says:

    Can you imagine if Beyonce’s wig got snatched off during all that childish mayhem? Now that would have been a story.

  16. MeowuiRose says:

    Idk why some people can get away with it and some can’t but I have no problem with the fact that Bey is a pretty pretty princess.

  17. markymark says:

    Isn’t Diddy getting too old for stuff like this?

  18. ThruRoseColouredGlasses says:

    J. Cole isn’t just so nobody hes an amazing lyricist and signed to RocNation. He’s uber talented…I really don’t see this happening at all…

    Nor do I see Beyonce screaming at the top of her lungs like a Ginger from True Blood. This is such a lame story…

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Agree. He also seems very respectful and polite.
      I saw him open up for Rihanna, before he got big, and he impressed me then. I am not usually easily impressed, especially with someone I have never seen!. He seemed like he really knew what he was doing and he was super nice to the audience. I love him. ♥

  19. Trudy says:

    J Cole is an amazing rapper that will be around for a long time. And of course Jay Z was trying to protect Beyonce. This isn’t the first time, he and their bodyguard got into some type of scuffle with paparazzi before overseas over Beyonce, they tried to keep them at bay and she just kept walking fast to get away.

    Also Diddy is a douche and very unstable so I don’t blame Jay for making sure Beyonce was ok. You know during these scuffles people can sneak up on someone while everyone is distracted and do them harm. Plus I’m sure Bey had a few drinks in her (as usual) so maybe she panicked that’s why she was yelling.

    I thought it was Rita Ora when I saw the picture on the other page.

  21. mar says:

    I do like Bey but her nose just looks way too thin now- it really takes away from her natural beauty and now she just looks constructed.

  22. Tara says:

    Diddy is beyond a joke. No matter how many partys he throws in the Hamptons or how many tuxedoes he climbs into for his dumb Ciroc ads he us still a low rent thug. The funny thing is that he had a comfortabke, middle class upbringing with good parenting. He just has a nasty personality and money can not change that.
    Jay-Z grew up in a public housing slum notorious for drugs and violent crime. And guess who is the bigger man here? Never use your childhood as an excuse for anything.

  23. Noi says:

    since when does pushing= fighting? they were just shoving each other like two bratty kids at the playground

  24. truthful says:

    I don’t blame Bey, who wants to be another J LO dodging bullets–

    Diddy is rich but he is trash.

  25. Cowgirl says:

    This is OT, but every time I see her I think of Michael Jackson. She is turning into a white woman before our very eyes.

  26. lien says:

    Diddy gets into a fight but Beyonce is the problem? Funny other blogs don’t even mention Beyonce in relation to this fight…

  27. fallen says:

    Um J.Cole isn’t the type to get into fights, look him up he’s pretty big…
