Money might not buy love, but it will buy a six-figure Maybach for the teenaged son of a hip-hop superstar who happens to still be on campus.
Thanks to his dad, hip-hop mogul and businessman Sean “Diddy” Combs, now Justin Dior Combs is the proud owner of a $360,000 (N57,600,000) luxury sedan.
His dad didn’t just throw Justin a huge, star-studded birthday party at the Manhattan club M2 Ultralounge on Saturday night. He also presented the youngster with a brand-new Maybach, wrapped in a red bow and parked outside the club.
The party, which was filmed for the MTV reality show “My Super Sweet Sixteen,” featured performances by rappers Fabulous, Lil’ Kim, and Jim Jones. Cast members from “Jersey Shore” were also there to wish Justin a happy birthday.
In addition to the wheels, Diddy gave his son a check for $10,000(N1,600,000), which Justin immediately donated to Wyclef Jean’s charity Yele Haiti. And since the teenager doesn’t yet drive or have a license, Diddy provided him with a uniformed driver to escort the teen and his friends around Manhattan.
The gift-wrapped car
Surprisingly, Justin doesn’t seem spoiled by life as the son of a mega-star. At the party, he told said “Words can’t even describe how I feel.” Justin, whose mother is Diddy’s ex Misa Hylton-Brim, said ”I’m so blessed and thankful for all of this.”
For the non-autophiles: A Maybach is the ultra-luxury automobile line owned and operated by Daimler, which is also the parent company for Mercedes-Benz. Maybach is a favorite brand in the hip-hop celebrity community. Russell Simmons and Jay-Z are among the famous Maybach owners, and the Simmons-founded Def Jam record label had a release called ”Maybach Music.”
Justin’s birthday cake
Even with new wheels, no birthday is complete without a cake. Diddy made sure his son was not disappointed.
