P Diddy's party sets hair on fire

FIRE-FIGHTERS were called to a party thrown by P. Diddy after a model's hair caught fire.

The rap mogul was hosting a gathering in the penthouse of the London NYC hotel in New York on Tuesday night (14.12.10) when the bikini-clad beauty - who was in a bathtub - leaned over a candle and her set her hair alight.

Almost 200 people attended the event - which was originally intended for 20 people - and rapper Fabolous was the first to notice the flames according to P. Diddy's associate Kevin Hart.

He told the New York Post newspaper: "Fab was the first person to see the fire. We put it out as quick as we could, I can honestly say."

The unnamed model quickly dunked her head in the water but not before Fabolous took a picture and posted it on his twitter page.

He then tweeted a series of messages poking fun at the girl he has nicknamed 'ShortyInTheTub'.

He wrote: "#ShortyInTheTubGot mad at me cuz I said I was a Heat fan.. Smh..#HotHeaded", "#ShortyInTheTubGot her Fire Marshall Bill on!! *smokin head*#LemmeShowYouSomethin" and "Somebody ask if #ShortyInTheTubGot a light. (sic)"

P. Diddy later tried to reassure the other revellers that everything was OK after the firefighters left.

He said: "The Fire Department just left upstairs. It's crazy, but everything is under control."

The rapper - real name Sean Combs - later posted a link to video footage of the incident on his twitter saying: "check it out>>its about to be the bathtub scene!! Lol (sic)"

Other celebrities who attended the event include Usher, Chris Brown and Alicia Keys' husband Swizz Beatz.
