The FAA put the kibosh on Diddy's plans to fly across the Hudson via helicopter after his New York concert on Friday night (4/22). Diddy had originally arranged to take a helicopter to the afterparty in New Jersey but, according to the New York Post, use of the club's helipad wasn't cleared in time.

But Diddy still traveled to Club 4 Sixty 6 in true "presidential" fashion—he was escorted to the party in West Orange by three police cars. While Diddy sat comfortably in his Bentley, three SUV's trailed behind him.

John Mahdessian, the owner of Madam Paulette, a high-end couture dry-cleaning service rode along with Diddy and told the New York Post that it took a total of 15 minutes.

As previously reported, the rap mogul made a cool 75K for hosting the lavish event.
