Sean “Diddy” Combs spends some family time on a yacht in St. Bart’s.
Name: Sean “Diddy” Combs
Company: Bad Boy Entertainment
What MADE him Haute: The Grammy award-winning artist, whose impressive estate on Star Island is a must-see stop on all of the celebrity-home boat tours that raid the waters of Biscayne Bay, is almost as well known for his business ventures as for his music. The hip-hop impresario’s Bad Boy Entertainment is an umbrella company that operates Bad Boy Records, Sean Jean clothing line, a movie production company, Ciroc vodka, and two restaurants. His latest album, Last Train to Paris, has gained many great reviews so far.
What Makes Him Haute Now: What better way to relieve all the stress from the late Christmas shopping and holiday parties then soaking up some sun on top of a grand and lavish yacht in St. Bart’s? Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, was spotted relaxing with his two twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie in St. Bart’s, France, an area of play frequently visited by the rich and famous, on Dec. 27. Kim Porter, ex-supermodel and the mother of Diddy’s twin daughters and son Christian Casey Combs, was also enjoying the sun in a very sexy and chic two-piece bathing suit. When it comes to Diddy, there are all type of surprises. After a nice evening relaxing on the yacht, he had planned several shindigs, including a free concert by indie artist Macy Gray.
