Beyoncé Knowles was “yelling” as Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs got into a scuffle at an MTV VMAs after-party.
The singer clearly didn’t approve of the fight, which happened at a bash hosted by her husband Jay-Z following the Video Music Awards on Sunday. According to onlookers, Beyoncé screamed when the altercation broke out and Jay-Z leapt into action to ensure she wasn’t hurt.
“Diddy got in a fight with someone partying too close to him and his girlfriend [Cassie],” a guest revealed to New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l. “It was mayhem. Beyoncé was yelling to stop and Jay-Z was separating people and getting people away from Bey.”
The ruckus apparently lasted for just a few minutes, with a few people being pushed and some bottles broken.
However, Diddy was quick to reassure fellow revelers that it was safe to continue partying at the Dream Downtown in New York City.
“We were all dancing and the fight breaks out, and it happened so quickly and bottles were crashing everywhere, and everyone was screaming. People got pushed into bottles,” another guest tells us. “Then Diddy got up, took the mic and said, ‘It’s all cool! Ya’ll keep having fun! It’s no big deal, it’s over.’ ”
A host of big names including Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake and his ‘N SYNC bandmates, Jessica Biel, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell and Busta Rhymes are said to have witnessed the brawl.
According to New York Post, Diddy lost his cool with fellow rapper J. Cole when he upset his girlfriend Cassie.
“J. Cole was saying inappropriate things to Sean Combs and his girlfriend, Cassie. Sean immediately pounced. Some pushing and shoving happened. No punches were thrown, but it was a visible disturbance. A few bottles splashed to the floor and some partygoers were knocked over,” a source revealed to the publication.
Producer-and-singer Pharrell decided to carry on partying next door at No.8, where he is said to have arrived with a “crew of beautiful people” before challenging Jennifer Hudson to a dance-off.
