P. Diddy buys his 16-year old son a $360 K Maybach

Sean Diddy Combs and son Justin arrive for Justin Combs sweet sixteen birthday party in New York

Normally I couldn’t care one way or the other about anything to do with P. Diddy. I just don’t give a crap about him, good or bad. But this one caught my attention – apparently, Diddy’s son Justin turned 16 over the weekend, and Diddy threw Justin an extravagant birthday party in New York, all filmed for MTV’s series “My Super Sweet Sixteen”. Sidenote: I don’t watch the show with any regularity, but when I do, I fear for not only the future of our country, but the future of the human race. Anyway, Diddy wanted his son’s birthday party to go on without a hitch, and that included the unveiling of Justin’s new $360,000 Maybach… and a $10,000 check, which Justin decided to donate to Haiti relief:

Diddy was on a mission to throw his son Justin Dior the ultimate Sweet Sixteen on Saturday night, and no one was going to stop him.

Spies at the M2 Ultralounge bash say the music mogul almost got into an altercation with a publicist early in the evening, when the flack tried to get in some personal business time with him.

“Diddy was yelling about how it was his son’s birthday and not a night to talk about work,” a partygoer dishes. “He really ripped into him, but the guy totally deserved it. He was out of line.”

But the minidrama couldn’t take away from the extravagant fete or Justin’s spotlight: Diddy had his eldest son sit above the packed crowd on a throne that was on the stage, all while MTV cameras rolled for an upcoming episode of “My Super Sweet Sixteen.”

And the line-up of performers wasn’t too shabby, either. The crowd went wild when the likes of Fabolous, Lil’ Kim and Jim Jones took to the stage to perform.

Diddy also didn’t skimp on the gifts. He presented Justin with a brand-new silver Maybach (which sat outside the W. 28th St. hot spot wrapped in a red bow) and a uniformed driver to escort him around New York City — because, at 16, Justin is just now learning how to drive.

In a smaller — but just as exorbitant — package: The doting dad gave his son a check for a cool $10,000, which we hear the miniphilanthropist has decided to donate to Yele Haiti.

And while the kids were having good, clean fun downstairs, the celebrities that attended the fete retreated to a private upstairs section for a more adultlike experience.

The aforementioned singers as well as crooners Trey Songz and Juelz Santana joined the cast of (what else?) “Jersey Shore” behind a velvet curtain, where they were all certainly having a good time.

“When Snooki [Nicole Polizzi] left around 10 p.m., she snuck out a back door and absolutely wreaked like booze,” one partygoer said. “The over-21 party was even more wild than the one downstairs.”

[From Gatecrasher]

Eh, do I really want to get into with the spoiling of today’s children? Do I think Justin probably would have benefited in the long run with a birthday party that was less showy and less expensive? Sure. Do I wish that Diddy had given Justin the choice – donate $370,000 to charity, or buy this expensive car? Sure. And call me crazy, but maybe Justin would have even surprised us and decided to give more money to Haiti if given the opportunity. I mean, why not a simple BMW? Or some luxury car that would cost $100,000, and then Justin could have donated the rest to Haiti, if that was his choice. For my 16th birthday, I got a job and a 14-year-old clunker with a sh-tty muffler. Sweet sixteen indeed.

    “wreaked”? ugh…

    Just goes to show you, Just because you have alot of money doesnt mean you have alot of brains.

  3. yadirak says:

    I always thought P-doodie and JLO belonged together. Always so interested in the materialistic things in life. It was nice that the kid had more social responsibility to donate to the Haiti relief fund. I guess he is just more mature at 16 than his PooDaddy.

  4. princess pea says:

    Is it weird to anyone else that a 16 year old’s party has an over-21 section upstairs? It’s kind of gross that a bunch of celebs went to a teenager’s party, really just to hang out with his dad. Way to make the day about you, Puffy.

  5. ChickenTetrazzini says:

    He should have bought him a Ford Pinto. Or better yet, a moped. Or a bus pass! Just another entitled, spoiled brat that we’ll unfortunately probably have to see on our TVs soon enough….joy.

  6. Phowie says:

    I’m shocked that any kid that would broadcast their birthday party on ‘My Sweet Sixteen’had the value system in place to want to donate anything. Eh, $10K is probably milk money for this kid, but I would have been more impressed if Puffy had bought him some driving lessons and offered to do his time in the passenger seat while the kid practices with his learner’s permit, like almost every other American parent.

  7. bite me says:

    low classy

  8. ,,,, says:

    Justin isn’t his eldest son, Quincy Brown is, and he had a My Super Sweet 16 show a few years ago. It was equally as lavish and lame.

    edit: thanks bite me!

  9. rreedy says:

    E-w-w-w! The man has no class, never did, never will. Obviously he has no common sense, either. I won’t say anything about his absent chin.

  10. truthSF says:

    I absolutely, positively can not stand P. Shitty, I am mortified, horrified, and sooo ashamed he is a part of my race. WHY GOD WHY???!!

  11. bite me says:

    actually Quincy is not his biological son, although he did raise him with Kim Porter. Al B.Sure is Quincy father

  12. Roma says:

    For my 16th birthday I got a car with the money I had saved from working part-time jobs for two years. Let me tell you, I appreciated that Toyota Celica with the shag fur seats more than Justin will ever appreciate his Maybach.

  13. Babalon says:

    “…but I would have been more impressed if Puffy had bought him some driving lessons and offered to do his time in the passenger seat while the kid practices with his learner’s permit, like almost every other American parent. ”

    Do you have some inside information or something that indicates he hasn’t done so? This sounds a bit presumptuous.

  14. lucy2 says:

    That’s just gross. I know it’s his money and all, but how do you look at the world around you and decide that yeah, why not spend $360K on a car for a 16 year old, who will probably wreck it in a matter of months.
    Since when do boys have sweet 16 parties?
    I wonder if the kid really decided himself to give the check to Haiti relief, or if that was the arrangement all along with the TV show and all to make them appear charitable.

    Puff Doodle is so pathetic. He probably did the whole thing just for more unwarranted attention for himself.

  15. gimmeabreak says:

    I just threw up a little on my shirt.

  16. Squirrel says:

    Go easy on the kid – there must be some upside in having the P-fuddy for your father… poor kid has to live down the embarrassment for the rest of his life! 😀

  17. Mairead says:

    I feel kind of sorry in a way for this kid – he’s got a father who is known for his tantrums and comes from a materialistic genepool with a penchant for dopey names (Dior, seriously?) even his father’s real name is “John John” for heaven’s sake! 🙄

    I hope that “John John” has given more than that measly $10k to Haiti! He’ll spend that in one shopping trip, clothing his untalented @ss.

  18. ,,,, says:

    It’s Sean John.

  19. J-Lin says:

    Diddy has a ton of money. People are saying it’s gross, but it’s nothing to Diddy’s budget. Justin acutally asked his guests to contribute to the Haitian relief in lieu of giving him gifts.

    Say what you like about Diddy, but his kids are well grounded.

  20. ChickenTetrazzini says:

    Oh, and my dad is pretty rich, and you know what kind of car I had? A 1988 Nissan 240sx with roll-down windows and a huge rip in the seat where the hot metal would burn me every time I got in the car. And let me tell you, I loved that car and was absolutely thrilled to have gotten it. I took care of it and if it hadn’t had engine problems, I’d probably still have it now, 11 years later. I also had a job, so not all rich people spoil their kids like this. It doesn’t teach them anything, just makes them entitled. I wouldn’t trade my normal non-spoiled upbringing for all the $350,000 cars in the world. Diddy should show his love of his son by teaching him that there’s more to life than money, but this *IS* Diddy so I won’t hold my breath. Poor little rich kid…and I mean that.

  21. Alecto says:

    for my sweet 16 i got pizza and watched black beauty with my mom. depressing

  22. Huh? says:

    16 year olds who get cars they didn’t have to pay for themselves (even 14 year old ones) are spoiled, this is just that to the extreme.
    Diddy’s money, Diddy’s decision.

  23. georgiagrl says:

    Its not necessary to be ashamed that he is of your race. You’ve obviously have never seen this show, as the participants are all equally vapid, and represent all races. This over the top, excessive behavior happens everyday, all over the world, and why it becomes so outrageous when its Diddy, I don’t know? I really don’t begrudge people who make and earn alot of money, more power to you, but its unconsciousable as to how one can sleep at night spending so outrageously on something so inconsequential. The World is really going to hell in a handbasket when money is wasted like that and people are literally starving to death, and suffering endlessly.

  24. EMV says:

    It’s his money, he can do with it whatever he wants. I’m wondering when boys started wanting Sweet 16 parties??

  25. Ron says:

    The thing that gets me about this is what are the values of the kid? What does the kid appreciate and respect? 10,000 to Haiti is great for them but is really just a token to not make the party seem extreme and make the kid look generous which is really disingenuous. When I worked in retail in BH the absolute worst thing you could see coming toward you was one of these kids with a credit card, they really were a nightmare and when it boils down to it, it was their parents fault for not teaching them values or much of anything else. I found that most of these kids had very little interaction with their parents. They were raised by nannies and just had money thrown at them.
    And on a completely vacuous side note, I hope that kid has a growth spurt soon, he’s a midget and he looks like a valet in that outfit.

  26. gaby says:

    how about a $10,000 car for the 16 yr old inexperienced driver who will probably crash it, and a $360,000 check for Haiti where people are starving, dying, and undergoing medical procedures like amputations without any anesthesia?

  27. Dingles says:

    Kids like these grow into vapid, empty adults who are unable to truly appreciate anything in life. When you’re handed EVERYTHING to you on a silver platter, and that “everything” is the finest in the world, what is there to work for? What way is there to feel accomplished? Any career this kid has will be because of his daddy’s connections, so even his career success will not be earned.

    I can never feel jealous of people like this. Money is not a substitute for a challenging and rewarding life experience.

  28. lucy2 says:

    @Ron, regarding the donation, you said it a lot better than I did!

    Yes, Pink Diddle has a lot of money. But just because someone CAN afford to buy their kid a car like that does not mean that they should. Considering Poop Doofus is a self made millionaire, you’d think he’d want to teach his kids about working hard to earn what you have. It’s great to give your kids all the things you never had, but you have to drawn the line somewhere.
    I very much agree that while kids like this are so often spoiled brats, it’s the parents who made them that way.

  29. JRZEEgrl says:

    Typical of Diddy.

  30. Cinderella says:

    This coming from a man who couldn’t afford fuel for his private jet.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if the car is leased or titled to one of Diddy’s businesses. Tax write-off. You know Diddy’s all about business and show. And don’t think for a moment that party wasn’t comped by at least a dozen vendors.

    Either way, that was very kind of Justin to donate his birthday check.

  31. linda says:

    they’re both ugly and fug so i don’t care

  32. Sincerity says:

    P-Diddy has the right to spend his money anyway he chooses; however, he maybe placing the safety of his child at risk. An African American boy that young in such an expensive car is going to be repeatedly profiled by law enforcement and all police officers are not without their faults. Things can easily get out of hand and before you know it, we’ll be reading about his son’s arrest. There are also some very unstable types running around lose and he should be mindful of what happened to Bill Cosby’s son, Ennis, who was murdered because he was only trying to be helpful.

  33. Leek says:

    What a great dad. He has provided his 16 year old son with enough material items that he now has nothing left to look forward to in life.

    I seriously enjoy being “working poor” after reading shit like this. One day when I get a dishwasher I will party like P. Diddy himself.

  34. mtb says:

    @lucy2 “Poop Doofus” – Best. Name. EVER!

    I too think it’s a shame that since Piddle Diddle did do the hard work for his financial success that he is (seemingly) handing his children things instead of instilling in them the need to work for what they get. I have always had to work for the things that I have wanted. I (now) think it was wonderful that my parents didn’t hand everything to me.

  35. Maleficent says:

    I see Diddy can buy his son a $350k car, and it is okay, because it’s his business, but Tom Cruise, on the other hand should not buy his daughter an expensive kitty car, because that is wrong.

    Why do some celebs get passes on excessive expeditures, while other get called out.

    Seems to me it’s a double standard.

  36. gg says:

    lol @ Praise St. Angie & gimmeabreak. 😆

    I got a crappy no-name-brand tennis racquet and I didn’t even play tennis.

    I can’t help but think Howdy Diddy should quit trying to “impress” everybody so damn hard. Starting with not naming his children after a fashion house. Tacky, tacky.

    At least the young lad doesn’t look anything like his grimaced father.

  37. aaron says:

    why does everyone care what diddy buys his son for his birthday everyone is just jealous “why dont you donate that money to haiti” probabaly cause diddy doesnt care about haiti he cares about his son idk why everyone feels like cause something bad happens we gotta our donate our lives to that cause

  38. AlaskaJoey says:

    @gaby -good point! I knew one girl in HS, who lived in a richer town than me, whose parents bought her a brand new Saab for her 17th birthday. She crashed it within 6 months, and they bought her another one. This is a lifestyle I cannot comprehend.

  39. mia says:

    This is what a man does when he doesn’t actually “parent” his son.
    He tries to buy the boy’s love. This is nothing new but it still doesn’t work.
    P. Diddy will die alone, no one to mourn him.

    What does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul? (God said this)

  40. lilred says:

    I only hope thid doesn’t turn into another Nick Hogan incident.

  41. Aspie says:

    It’s his money and it’s his choice. I believe there are richer people in the world who teach their kids even less about giving back to the world than Diddy did with this son.

    Could they have increased the donation to Haiti? Absolutely. But at least the kid donated a relatively decent sum. It’s a wholly disgusting story all around but at least there’s some glimmer of modesty in there with the donation.

  42. ViktoryGin says:

    Please. Not up for his personal consideration are the ethical practicalities of Diddle’s “generosity”. Rest assured that the man doesn’t give a rat’s ass other than the superficial gesture of power that it creates. Everything and everyone in his life are an extension of his ego and he will use it/them to that end. Recall the sad figure that his former long time partner cut when he decided to temporarily take a “hiatus” from her and replaced her with Jennifer Lopez for a spell. How convenient that he decided to co-opt his son’s party with yet another excuse to grandstand and remind everyone that though he can’t keep artists signed and hasn’t had a successful act in a decade, he’s still the shit and don’t you forget it. And why the hell is his son’s middle name Dior?

  43. remz kendall says:


    Justin IS indeed his oldest son. Quincy is not his biological son, but the son of Kim Porter who is mother to 3 of his 5 biological children. Although he claims Quincy as his son because he basically raised him, the two share no blood.

  44. yae says:

    Worship the rich.
    Buy another pdiddy sponsored album.

    His kids need LOTS of diamonds. He makes lots of kids. And the public will pay for every lavish party those kids have.

    But pdiddy works real hard……
    Like wall street does.

  45. Dhavy says:

    What a clown

    So what’s the lesson?

    To think that this kid will probably never finish school and grows up thinking everything needs to be handed to him without having to work for the things he wants

  46. Phowie says:

    It is not presumptious when the article specifically states that at 16 the kid is just learning how to drive. You can get a learner’s permit at 15, the idea being to have a year to practice with an adult in the car with you until you reach 16, at which time you can legally apply for a driver’s license. How many teenagers or readers of this site waited until 16 to just start to learn how to drive? Conversely, how many hit the DMV on or around their 16th birthday to nab that piece of plastic that meant mobility and freedom?

  47. ogechi says:

    cutie sweet looking sixteen…LOL

  48. Jazz says:

    Is this the kid he wasn’t paying child support for or was that with another baby mama?

  49. Idris U says:

    Listen PEOPLE, if you got the money then why not? Do whatever you like, if Diddy though it was fitting to hold a party of this magnitude then again why not. Stop being jealous he’s got money so he treated his own fleshing blood. Get a life and stop complaining that you got a crappy job in retail hahahahaha

  50. Ummm… how about a reverse. Would it not have been slightly better to donate $360,000 to Haiti and give his [16 year old] son $10,000? I’d bet twice as much as that car that it won’t be too long before he wishes that he’d made a much wiser decision… I’m just saying!

  51. lamont adair says:

    Well it baffles me as to why people get so disturbed with what p diddy does with his money? I mean really where is the congrats for the success and the fact that in a white dominated society a black man can actually thrive and make himself wealthy. Just the problem with people instead of harnessing your own creativity,desires and ambition you frown upon someone else’s. The US is an equal opportunistic country, Bill Gates built Microsoft from nothing, the Google guys are billionaires from turning there idea into something tangible. Sean Combs turned his ambition into something tangible, why can’t you. That negative energy you harness can be redirected into positive energy to create anything you want.That the problem the people at the bottom always have something to say, people like Sean combs are where he is because he decided that talking about what someone else has isn’t going to get you what you want!

  52. slymm27 says:

    hahahahhah!!!!!!!!! Jealousy makes you nasty! Its his damn money, and he can bloody hell do whatever he wants whith it…If he wants to drown in all in the red sea, how does it affect you…bla!! bla!!! bla!!!! i got a muffler for my own birthday, i got a beat up nissan…who cares??? Get off the computer, and get back to work, maybe after 10 yrs of saving, you can get to buy the baby phat muffler!!!!!! hahahhaha!!
