Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs has managed to avoid serving jury duty in New York. The rap mogul was called to the Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday, but missed a spot in the jury box after claiming that he’d have problems being impartial.
Sean Combs arrived at the court at 9:30 am, sporting a Met cap and Tom Seaver jersey. He then went into a room with 20 other potential jurors for a personal injury case. The Bad Boy records boss apparently annoyed the other jurors by speaking loudly on a mobile phone.
The lawyers then asked the potential jurors if they’d have a problem being impartial, Diddy said he would, and was excused from the panel.
He was later questioned for another personal injury case, and was sent home around noon with a ‘call-in-card,’ which meant that he had to return to the court on Wednesday morning to see if he was needed.
