Rap mogul Diddy's Last Train to Paris album release party host Kevin Hart has detailed his reaction to witnessing a model's hair catch fire just inches away from him last week.
Although Hart hilariously recalled the incident, he felt that singer Trey Songz' reaction to the flames generated more laughs.
"That might have been the funniest thing I've ever, like, personally witnessed," Hart said in an interview with Angela Yee. "And I'ma tell y'all what y'all laughing at. See, y'all laughing at the wrong stuff. You laughing at the hair going on fire-- that's not the funniest part of the video. You watch the video again, okay? Lemme give you what's going on. It's me [Fabolous] and Trey [Songz], we all upstairs, you know, I'm doing the interview, right? You know we silly. Everybody's drinking; it's a good time, right? This is what I hear-- let me tell you how funny Trey is. Trey is in sexy mode all the time. This is how Trey said the girl hair was on fire, 'Yo, her hair is on fire.' Listen. Full flame! She got full flames in the back of her head. Trey didn't have a panic. [Laughs]" (Power 105.1)
Following the incident, victim Miyoki Jones addressed the fire.
Celebrity gossip and news site, TMZ.com, recently caught up with Miyoki Jones in NYC as she was exiting a Starbucks restaurant. The model told them about what happened, saying she was a paid model hired to do a party for the Diddy-Dirty Money "Last Train to Paris" album. She said there were a lot of candles around and all of a sudden her hair caught on fire. Miyoki said it was singer Trey Songz who told her that her hair was on fire. TMZ asked if Diddy called Miyoki and she said "he's very humble, and definitely reached out after" to make sure she was alright. Obviously Diddy doesn't want any bad publicity or even worse a lawsuit on his hands for this incident. Miyoki said all the damage to her hair is now hidden under a bun on top of her doo. She said "hopefully something good comes out of all this." If nothing else, Miyoki Jones is getting some publicity and exposure out of this whole thing. While it seems like a laughing matter, if she gets more work out of this, she'll be the one laughing all the way to the bank! (Gather)
Last week, Diddy discussed the situation on Jimmy Kimmel's ate night talk show.
He's famously laid back. And it seems that even a model's hair catching fire at his party didn't phase P Diddy. And with his many millions in the bank, it's easy to see how he made her feel better. 'I definitely had to be nice to her,' he joked as he talked to Jimmy Kimmel last night. Luckily despite her accident, the model wasn't injured. 'She was a great sport. Nobody got hurt,' he said of model Miyoki Jones. And Diddy claims his party was so fun that even burnt Miyoki didn't want to leave. 'At a Diddy party, if something ain't broke, you gotta get back in the tub', Diddy bragged. (Daily Mail)
The incident reportedly took place last Tuesday (December 14).
Diddy is known for some crazy parties -- but this one went down in flames -- particularly for a model whose hair ignited. It all went down while the rapper was celebrating the release of Diddy-Dirty Money's new album, "Last Train to Paris" in a 2,500 square foot penthouse at the London on Tuesday -- with USTREAM catching all the action.
