Sean Combs has slammed reports he was verbally abusive after being denied entry into a Golden Globe Awards after-party on Monday night (15JAN07).
The hip-hop mogul arrived with his entourage at the Sunset Tower Hotel at a party hosted by members of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and according to one witness, was verbally towards hotel security when he was told his name was not on the guest list.
Hotel owner Jeff Klein asked the star to leave, which reportedly caused Combs to shout back, "What are you going to do - call the police? Just try it - I'll spend the rest of my life hunting you down!"
Combs and his entourage left soon after the exchange.
Combs was allegedly banned from CAA parties after an incident several years ago when he lost his temper with an assistant to CAA co-chief BRYAN LOURD, who was hosting an Oscar party - according to PageSix.com.
But a CAA representative has refuted the claims, saying, "There is no ban on Puffy officially or unofficially. He just wasn't invited."
Combs' spokesperson has denied the star was verbally abusive, saying, "Sean never said those things. He respects people's wishes and left. He went to Prince's party instead.
