P. Diddy Birthday Party Draws Kanye West, Jay Z and Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio to Ron Burkle's Beverly Hills Estate
Notables from the music and film worlds were joined by supermodels and, of course, Kardashians for the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored exclusive event.
Most people celebrate their birthday for a weekend, but if you're a music mogul like P. Diddy, you get to stretch it out for a couple of weeks at least.
Diddy turned 46 on Nov. 4, but together with billionaire businessman Ron Burkle, who turned 63 on Nov. 12, he threw himself a massive party on Saturday night (Nov. 21). Held at Burkle's Beverly Hills estate in the historic Green Acres neighborhood, stars from the music and film worlds were joined by supermodels and, of course, Kardashians for the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored exclusive event.
The majority of the party guests were shuttled by party bus to the estate while celebrities arrived by limo. Kanye West and the Kardashians (Kris and Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian were accounted for) made their entrances around 10:30 p.m. followed by a group that included The Weeknd and Bella Hadid. Soon after, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Connelly rolled up, and at around 12:30 a.m., Jay Z and Beyonce arrived — the two had flown in from the Canelo Alvarez-Miguel Cotto fight in Las Vegas, according to a source — with Destiny's Child groupmate Michelle Williams.
Other notable attendees included actors Vin Diesel and Cara Delevingne, musicians Pharrell Williams, Joe Jonas, Tyga, Ludacris, French Montana and Wiz Khalifa, and music executives Guy Oseary (manager of U2, Madonna and Amy Schumer), L.A. Reid (chairman of Epic Records) and Scooter Braun (manager for Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande). Potentially awkward run-ins — West, Wiz and ex Amber Rose, for example — seem to have been averted without incident.
Bieber and Rihanna were also on the guest list, but didn't show. Bieber was resting up for his performance on the American Music Awards Sunday night, an insider tells THR, while Rihanna, says another source, is still putting the finishing touches on her new album Anti, due out imminently.
A, er, highlight of the night, according to a one invited guest: Wiz Khalifa's mason jar of top-shelf marijuana, which he proudly carried in his hand (see photos below) — perhaps the rapper mistook Green Acres for green bakers. Diddy would no sooner snatch the stash, as photographer Jeff Kravitz documented on Twitter.
THR.com reported in October that Burkle, the co-founder of private equity firm Yucaipa Companies, is set to take the reins on Relativity Media's sports division as the company emerges from bankruptcy.
