Diddy's Record Release Party Goes Horribly Wrong

Diddy just does not seem to have much luck when it comes to New York nightlife. Remember the Club USA incident back in 1999 when he was accused of firing a gun into a crowd of people? Ten years later and with a new album coming out, Diddy decided to host an intimate release party at the London NYC Hotel for 200 of his closest friends and broadcast the whole thing on UStream. What could possibly go wrong? How about one of his female "guests" hair catching fire while she was soaking in the penthouse's bathtub (34 second mark of the video), causing her to scream and a Diddy employee to ask if "the camera caught that?" What a great guy. Luckily, she was not seriously injured. Perhaps Diddy should stick to his swinger's club, and leave the rapping and penthouse parties to others.
