While Diddy is getting ready to ring in the New Year and provide his “safe rides” driving service for NYE party goers, he’s also become the latest celebrity in Hip-Hop to file a lawsuit.
Just in time for 2010, Puff is taking the landlord responsible for his Sean John flagship store to court.
According to a lawsuit filed by the operators of his Sean John clothing line, Christian Casey LLC, the landlord of the Fifth Avenue building in New York City where the store is located, is responsible for their recent poor sales.
The company claims that the landlord left sidewalk scaffolding in front of their operation causing their sales to decline 50%.
Puff’s Christian Casey LLC is suing for $2.5 million.
Ummm…did it ever occur to them that maybe people just don’t want to wear Sean John anymore?
NBC NY: Most partygoers dead the responsibility of being the designated driver, especially when it comes to New Year’s Eve. Have no fear, Diddy’s here to give you all a ride home.
For the second year in a row, Sean “Diddy” Combs and CÎROC Ultra Premium Vodka are partnering with the Taxi and Limousine Commission to get thousands of people home safely this New Year’s Eve by picking up their transportation tabs.
Diddy and company will be handing out $15 taxi debit cards and one-way fare Metrocards to ensure revelers bring in the new decade safely.
“New York stands as the world’s icon for a New Year’s Eve celebration and Las Vegas is the biggest party destination in the country,” Combs said in a statement. “By bringing this program to both of these great cities we will continue to show the rest of the country that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn’t end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely.”
