After the awards show, celebrities including Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna and Kevin Hart headed to The Dream in Manhattan. Rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs and J. Cole were also in attendance.
According to the New York Post, Cole was kicked out of the party for provoking Diddy into a brawl.
“J. Cole was saying inappropriate things to Sean Combs and his girlfriend, Cassie. Sean immediately pounced. Some pushing and shoving happened. No punches were thrown, but it was a visible disturbance. A few bottles splashed to the floor and some partygoers were knocked over, falling on top of Renee Graziano from ‘Mob Wives.’ ”
It is unclear what took place, if anything, but it was enough for both parties to address their fans on Twitter.
J. Cole kept it simple, “People believe everything.” His road manager Ibrahim was a bit more chatty: “The Internet is a crazy place you n*** reporting s*** with no facts. Cole ain’t get thrown out no party and he damn sure ain’t get beat up. Ain’t gon go into details about last night, but get the facts right first before you rush to report some s*** for some extra blog clicks.”
Later, Diddy posted to Twitter:
“I usually don’t address rumors but I got too much respect for my bro @JColeNC. We are friends. We just yell in public sometimes LOL #Fam.”
