When Sean “Diddy” Combs learned he and his posse would have to be searched for weapons upon entering a New York club Monday night, the mogul reportedly decided to take his friends and go elsewhere, according to the New York Post.

As the story goes, Diddy was tapped to co-host a birthday party for DJ Clue at club M2 on West 28th Street Monday night with Kobe Bryant after the historic Knicks/Lakers game in which Bryant scored 61 points.

But the artist had no idea that the New York Police Department had an undercover gun detail searching guests as they came into the club. “Everyone wanted to make sure that the dozens of NBA stars in attendance, including Lamar Odom, Vince Carter and Pau Gasol, would be safe,” an insider told the newspaper.

When Diddy arrived at 1:45 a.m. with a six-man entourage, a witness said he “flipped out” when cops asked to search him and his friends. “He went nuts, saying, ‘Why are you disrespecting me like this? Why are you doing this to me?’ During the commotion, one of his guys slipped away, unsearched, back to the car.”

Diddy “stormed off and started to text DJ Clue asking, ‘What the [bleep] is going on?’ and asked if he could go in the back entrance,” the Post reported. When told that the cops would have to search him and his friends there as well, Diddy decided not to attend the party.

Bryant, on the other hand, endured the pat down and stayed until 4 a.m. “He was in the VIP area, where there were strict orders not to let any women in near him,” the Post reported. On his way out, Bryant (who drank water), after ordering two bottles of champagne for his pals, left the waitresses a $2,000 tip.

Erykah Badu and boyfriend Jay Electronica, who used Twitter to send out updates about the birth of their daughter during delivery, used the same online service on Tuesday to announce that the baby’s name is Mars Merkaba.

Badu – real name Erica Wright – is already mother to 10-year-old son Seven Sirius with Outkast rapper Andre 3000, and 7-year-old daughter Puma Rose with rapper The D.O.C. On Feb. 1, Mars Merkaba became Badu’s third daughter and first with Electronica.

“Morning, I’m in labor,” Badu “tweeted” to her 4,500 followers on Sunday. The couple chose to deliver at her Brooklyn, New York home with the help of a midwife — who was apparently running late.

“Labor has begun,” Electronica wrote. “Everybody stand back. No hospitals. No doctors. No medicine. We’re waiting for the midwife to show.”

He also announced that Puma and Seven were present, and that he was writing updates while rubbing his girlfriend’s feet. Shortly after delivery, Electronica posted: “Feb. 1 2009, my first child, my daughter, born at 1:30 p.m. exactly. It’s the happiest day of my life.”

Badu added: “I can’t believe it’s over. Home birth, no painkillers, about five hours, she was a little past due date, but I didn’t mind waiting. Breath.”


Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods said he and President Obama engaged in a quick conversation about golf when they met at the Lincoln Memorial concert in Washington D.C., where Woods spoke as part of the pre-inauguration ceremony.

“We didn’t get to talk much,” Woods explained on his Web site. “I didn’t want to get in his way. I did ask him if he wanted to play golf and he said, ‘I’d love to.’ So we’ll make it happen.”

Woods, 33, hasn’t played competitive golf since undergoing knee surgery in June, and says that his return to the tour hinges on the birth of his second child with wife Elin Nordegren.

“A lot depends on the baby, which is due pretty soon,” Woods writes on his Web site. “That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise.”

“Elin, [daughter] Sam and I are very excited for the new baby to arrive, although that’s when the real lack of sleep begins. But I must admit, I am also excited about returning to competition,” he says. “Early on, I didn’t miss golf because I enjoyed staying home with Elin and Sam and I knew I wasn’t physically able to play.”

He adds: “I’m taking it tournament to tournament. With our new addition, it’s going to be a hectic spring.”


Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole

Entertainment Tonight reported Wednesday that Natalie Cole is hoping to receive a new kidney from her 31-year-old son Robert, which would put an end to the dialysis she must undergo three times a week.

“My son may be a possible [donor] match,” she told the TV show at the Grammy Salute to Jazz on Tuesday. “It’s very sweet and kind of strange to have people offer something like that.”

Cole, 58, is virus negative after being diagnosed with hepatitis C almost a year ago. She has also struggled with kidney problems while undergoing treatment for the liver disease.

Nominated for three Grammys for her 2008 album “Still Unforgettable,” the singer tells ET that she’s not looking forward to the recovery time following a transplant, “but in the end it’ll be worth it.”
