Hip-hop mogul Diddy's scheduled New Year's Eve party tonight (December 31) in Florida has reportedly forced the entire University of Cincinnati football team to change hotels.
Coach Brian Kelly's squad faces Virginia Tech tomorrow (January 1) in the Orange Bowl and has said the move is to help lessen the chances of any distractions.
In related news, Diddy will help treat New York City people to free cab service this evening by having a street team of workers passing out taxi service cards. Teaming up with Taxi & Limousine Commission plus E! Entertainment, the superstar's aim is safety and fun, according to New York's Daily News.
"New York is the world's iconic New Year's Eve city," Diddy told Daily News. "So let's lead by example and show everyone that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn't just end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely."
As previously reported by SOHH, the hip-hop mogul recently offered the mayor of New York $1 million to go towards charity if given the permission to redesign the symbolic New Year's ball. The mayor has yet to accept the offer and has likely refused the promotional deal.
