Mentally Ill Fan Breaks Into Diddy’s Home
Bad Boy CEO Diddy recently received a scare after a mentally ill fan by the name of Quamine Taylor broke into his East Hampton home. Luckily, Mr. Combs was not at home at the time of the break-in. The New York Post reported the details of the crime and arrest.
Quamine Taylor, 30, of Jamaica, Queens, gave “bad boy” a whole new meaning when he found an unlocked basement door and made himself at home for nearly 24 hours in the sprawling mansion. Combs, whose hits include, “Coming Home” and “I’ll Be Missing You,” was away at the time. Taylor made himself at home as he canvassed the closets, but his 6-foot-5 frame couldn’t fit into Diddy’s shirts. He then raided the refrigerator and dented the Ciroc spokesman’s liquor supply. The fantasy nearly folded when Taylor set off an alarm at 1 a.m. But the suave squatter managed to convince an arriving alarm-company representative and a police officer that he was a member of the Combs clan, and was allowed to remain in the home. After a restful evening, Taylor’s dream finally came crashing down when a caretaker found him at 4 p.m. on April Fools’ Day and called the cops.
Taylor’s mother released a statement confirming his mental illness by saying the following, “He has a long history of mental illness, and he has been off his meds for a while. We have been trying to get him some help.” This isn’t the first time he has actually broken into the home, he reported broke into the same East Hampton location over 10 years ago. Taylor was charged with “trespassing and petit-larceny raps and was being held in lieu of $2,000 bail.”
