Let’s not lose our heads: Diddy’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds decapitated
Police are searching for a man who vandalized the statue of the hip hop mogul standing in the famed New York City museum
Cain’t nobody hold Diddy down but somebody surely tried to break Diddy’s stride by beheading his Madame Tussauds wax statue in the Manhattan museum, police reported Sunday.
The music and fashion mogul’s statue suffered $300,000 worth of damage after a vandal knocked over the statue, causing Diddy’s wax “head to come loose from” its body and roll off, The NY Post reports.
The man then stomped on the head, the NYPD said.
Police reportedly have video of the attacker who is described as a white or Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s. The offender went into the museum on Saturday before 9p.m. and went up to the 9th floor where the statue was located, and wrecked Diddy’s wax doppleganger, according to reports.
Diddy, born Sean Combs, took his wax figure pretty seriously when it was cultivated back in 2009, according to Guest of a Guest.
Diddy’s former barber was reportedly even consulted about how to achieve the look of his classic cut for the creation of the wax figure.
The statue was also outfitted in the same threads he wore in an ad for his fragrance “I Am King,” the outlets states.
Somebody surely has in it for Diddy, but the entertainer has nobody but love for his people.
Last week he released a video on Instagram called the #DiddyCypher to spread love amongst rappers to inspire and uplift one another.
Rappers such as Christian Combs, YBN Cordae, Meek Mill, Fat Joe, Machine Gun Kelly, Jim Jones, Bay Swag and Moy Baun were featured in the video sharing their ideas and music.
“The vibe that I think we tapped into is sometimes we need to just get together and play our music for each other and catch a vibe,” Combs said.
The rap star and hit maker admits in the video that he wouldn’t play music for a lot of people in the past, but he believes that the rappers seen in the video will be inspired and not “jack” each other. Instead the goal of Mr. Combs was for each of the artists to uplift each other.
