Every star has “Stans” or obsessive fans, but one of Diddy’s fans got a little too close for comfort when he broke into the mogul’s home while he was away.
According to The New York Post, a 30-year-old Qaumine Taylor invaded Diddy’s East Hampton, N.Y., home on March 31 and attempted to squat there before eventually being caught.
After taking a bus and taxi to East Hampton, Taylor was able to get around the security gate and made his way into Diddy’s home through an unlocked basement door. Once inside, Taylor proceeded to try on Diddy’s clothes, rummage through his food and hit up his liquor stash.
Taylor was almost caught when he tripped an alarm around 1 a.m., but he was able to convince an alarm-company representative and a cop that he was a member of Diddy’s crew and allowed to stay there. However, Taylor was finally caught the next day by a caretaker around 4 p.m.
Bizarrely enough, this isn’t the first time Taylor has broken into Diddy’s home. He’s done it before in the same house more than 10 years ago when cops found him intoxicated after he took a swim in Diddy’s pool.
“I’ve actually been going to the house from time to time since 2001,” Taylor told The Post yesterday at the Suffolk County Jail. “I stay there a lot, but Sean gets funny sometimes about me staying there.”
Taylor’s mothe, revealed that he has a long history of mental illness and has been a fan of Diddy’s for years.
“He grew up listening to [Diddy’s] music,” Taylor’s worried mom said. “He has a long history of mental illness, and he has been off his meds for a while. We have been trying to get him some help.”
However, Taylor swears that his break-in wasn’t because he’s a fan or rather a “Stan.”
“I really didn’t go to Diddy’s house because I’m a big fan of his. I just wanted to get out of the city for a while. I was actually hoping to stay like 15 to 17 days,” he said.
However, after his arrival, Taylor says that he wasn’t that impressed with Diddy’s digs. “I got a good night’s sleep, but it’s not anything too special,” Taylor said of the accommodations. “It’s just like a three bedroom.”
Well, we’re sure that Diddy was quite upset to learn that his unwelcome house guest wasn’t pleased with his lavish abode.
All sarcasm aside, Diddy isn’t the only star to suffer a break-in. Check out some other celebrity break-ins below. –nicholas robinson
