P. Diddy's $500,000 car was allegedly pulled over and searched by police officers at gunpoint on Wednesday (15.05.13).

The 43-year-old rap mogul's Maybach was surrounded by armed deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department, close to the exclusive Soho House club in West Hollywood, after someone called 911 and claimed there was a person in the vehicle with a gun.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 'I'll Be Missing You' hitmaker was not in the car at the time as his driver and security guard had just dropped him off at the member's only venue.

At least nine squad cars pulled over the car shortly after it left the club and officers allegedly pulled out their guns before ordering the occupants out of the car.

The men lay on the ground as officers searched the Maybach until they discovered there were no weapons in the car.

The street was closed down temporarily until deputies gave the all clear.

Diddy was most recently romantically linked with singer Cassie, and though they were seen house-hunting together in Beverly Hills in January, it is believed they are no longer together.

He was also briefly linked to model Kate Upton last month but her spokesperson insisted she and the rapper - whose real name is Sean Combs - were not romantically involved.
