Sean “Diddy” Combs canceled his famous New Year’s Eve party on Monday. The hip-hop star took to Instagram to announce the disappointing news, telling his friends and family that the bash was a no-go, in order to keep everyone “safe and healthy.”
DaBaby, Meek Mill, and DJ Khaled all attended Diddy’s Miami New Year’s event, last year.
“In efforts to keep everyone safe & healthy, unfortunately, WE ARE NOT HAVING A NYE PARTY THIS YEAR!” Diddy wrote on Instagram on Monday.
“I hope everyone had a blessed holiday and wish you all the best for the new year!” the music mogul added.
Diddy headed off anyone who might try to talk him back into hosting the party by reiterating—”ATTENTION: THIS IS TO EVERYONE, ALL OF MY FRIENDS & FAMILY … I’M NOT CHANGING MY MIND … SEE YOU ALL IN 2021! LOVE YOU! ❤️”
Diddy received lots of feedback on his announcement, including a message from actress, Kerry Washington. “Amen!” the “Scandal” star commented.
“This is responsible. Let’s hope we can travel by the summer next year Damn another year I can’t go to Diddy’s NYE party,” one fan wrote.
“Diddy this is the best thing I have seen all year, especially after the birthday party. Yes stay safe, I don’t blame ya for it! Look out for your health and safety is always a flex I’m here for💯❤️,” another follower commented.
“I was wondering why I hadn’t received my invitation in the mail yet…” one fan joked.
Last year, Diddy rang in 2020 with lots of celebs at a huge NYE party in Miami. The A-listers gathered at Story Nightclub and celebrated with performances and an impressive fireworks display.
As reported—Diddy recently took to Instagram to express his love and gratitude for his mom, Janice Combs, in honor of her 80th birthday.
“I only exist because of this beautiful, hardworking, loving, hilarious, ass-whooping, always telling me the truth, genuine, smart, fly absolutely amazing Black Goddess Queen!!” Diddy captioned a photo of his mom. “Happy 80th Birthday to the best mother in the world!

Diddy also threw his mom a birthday celebration alongside a host of family and friends. In a video reposted by The Shaderoom, Diddy surprised his mom with a $1 million check and a brand-new Bentley.
“My mother to me was a superhero,” Diddy said to the audience during a 2018 VH1 tribute called ‘Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Moms.’ “She sacrificed everything to make sure that we were well taken care of and that we received the best possible education. And that we would always have the opportunity to go on and be great. She taught me to believe in myself and trust in my dreams. She instilled in me the importance of family and the power of love.”
