PREACH IT! Coming soon from P. Diddy: Justin Combs' 21st birthday party -- in space!

January 26, 2010 |  1:04 pm
Diddy For his son’s 16th birthday, P. Diddy gave the greatest gift a father could give: a giant party, hosted by P. Diddy.

Justin Dior Combs -- not a misprint -- turned 16 this week with a massive shindig at a club called M2 Ultralounge. Diddy, being Diddy, invited a bunch of stars as diverse as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi -- who seems to have a magic talent for ending up in every single item posted on MOG -- and Lil’ Kim.

Combs also presented his son with a $360,000 silver Maybach car and a uniformed driver -- the boy doesn’t have a license -- and a $10,000 check, which Justin Dior promptly donated to the earthquake victims in Haiti.

Best of all, Diddy made sure that not a single person on the planet will remain ignorant of these events: The entire party will be featured on the MTV show “My Super Sweet 16.”

Thankfully, guests reportedly were free to wear colors other than white and did not have to display proper hygiene for inspection at the door. This was a children’s party, after all.

“Seeing Justin grow up is a big deal for me,” Combs told the party-goers, MTV reported. “This is him entering manhood. I know a lot of y’all out there can relate to it.”

Maybach Relate to a $360,000 car with a uniformed driver? Of course!

If you’re, you know, Diddy.
