Man Sneaks Into Diddy's Mansion to Eat, Drink, Wear His Clothes
Sean "Diddy" Combs must be spinning. First he learns he's been fed penis-shaped dumplings, and now he has to deal with a break-in.
Quamine Taylor has been charged with trespassing and petit larceny, having been arrested on April 1 for breaking into Diddy's mansion. He had been staying at the luxurious Hamptons hideaway for nearly 24 hours when a caretaker called police.
While there, he ate Diddy's food. He drank Diddy's liquor. He danced around in Diddy's clothes.
This was not the first time Taylor had broken into Diddy's mansion. A little over 10 years ago, he did the same exact thing. When asked about the prior incident, he told the New York Post that he's been a frequent guest at the home since 2001. "I stay there a lot, but Sean gets funny sometimes about me staying there," he explained.
During the 2001 incident, Quamine Taylor was able to convince cops that he was a close personal friend. This time, the Post reports that he managed to convince an officer and the alarm company that he was Combs' cousin. The caretaker knew better.
Taylor's mother claims his actions are the result of an unmanaged mental illness, according to the paper. She says that he has long suffered from mental health issues and is no longer taking his meds.
If true, he will be assessed in jail, where he currently remains after being unable to post bail. His mental health issues will also factor into his punishment for breaking into Diddy's mansion. Prosecutors and/or the judge will likely offer him probation on the condition that he takes his meds and continues to get help.
