How did Diddy react?
Page Six reports that P. Diddy was mistaken for Kanye West at Art Basel in Miami, Florida.
Reportedly, Jeffrey Deitch, an art dealer and collector, went up to Sean "P. Diddy" Combes and said, "Hi Kanye," but then he quickly realized his mistake. Below is a recount of what happened by an eyewitness:
"[Jeffrey] looked absolutely mortified. There was a moment while everybody held their breath, then Diddy burst out laughing. He took it really well. There was a big crowd gathered at the entrance to an art fair booth. I asked the dealer what the commotion was about and she said, ‘Kanye is here.' I could only see the person from the back, and went over to say ‘Hi Kanye'. To my great embarrassment, it turned out to be P. Diddy. He thought it was very funny, especially since we had spent several hours together visiting my street art show in Los Angeles."
