David Becker/Getty Images via ABCCan’t nobody hold him down. Diddy lived up to the name of his 1997 double platinum debut solo hit when he celebrated his 49th birthday Sunday by skydiving onto the grounds of the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
The Bad Boy CEO posted an Instagram video of his successful landing, as he was cheered by the waiting crowd. He commented,” Just close your eyes and jump!!! NO FEAR!!! Thank you to my family for all the support. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!”
Will Smith recently bungee-jumped over the Grand Canyon to celebrate his 50th birthday, but Diddy said that he was not copying the Fresh Prince’s stunt.
“He definitely gave me some inspiration after seeing him jump out, but mine was already scheduled,” he explained. “So Will, I don’t want you to think I’m biting.”
Once Diddy landed, LeBron James and Nas were among the stars joining him to celebrate with a party at the mansion.
At the celebration, Diddy also announced he’s supporting Georgia’s Stacey Abrams for governor of that state.
“This will make her the first black woman governor, and it’s not just because of that,” he commented. “It’s because she’s for the people, she’s behind the people. But right now, she needs the people. We’re in a dead heat. I beg everyone out there. Please go hit those polls.”
Oprah Winfrey and Common are also among the celebrities supporting Abrams.
