Scorpio season is in full swing and one of the most famous of the bunch, Sean “Diddy” Combs, pulled out all the stops to celebrate his 49th birthday. Mr. “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” lived up to his words by throwing a celebrity-filled celebration that lasted until the break of dawn. Sources tell ESSENCE that the party took place at Ysabel, a popular Los Angeles hot spot, and included a slew of Diddy’s famous friends.
Beyonce and Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, LL COOL J, Angela Bassett, LeBron James, and many more pulled up to party with Diddy.

According to our source, Diddy’s mother, Janice Combs, toasted to her son’s born day, and Janelle Monáe led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” to the music mogul. At 2 a.m., sources say Diddy led partygoers to his mansion where DJ Cassidy manned the ones and twos and kept the party in full swing (and, of course, the Ciroc flowing) until it was shut down by the cops around 5 a.m. But not before Usher and Swizz Beatz both hit the stage and got the crowd hype. While he rung in his birthday with a bash that would have had most of us asleep for days, Diddy is hitting the road today to stump for Florida gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum. Combs is teaming up with Will Packer, Tiffany Haddish, and DJ Khaled to host a “Bring It Home” rally for Gillum at Florida A&M University late Monday night. Now that’s some serious #BlackExcellence!
