Rapper had an escort to travel one block recently

P Diddy recently had a police escort to travel one block in New York – and the incident is now being investigated by the New York Police Department.

A sergeant in the force gave the OK for the escort on Friday (April 22) after the rapping mogul played a show at the Hammerstein Ballroom. A spokesperson for the force has now said that the act was unauthorised and is being investigated, reports Billboard.

Diddy‘s dry cleaner reportedly asked for the escort, and had to go through a few different officers before they found one who agreed to make it happen.

The rapper’s spokesperson declined to comment.
