P. Diddy

Investigated for

Assault & Battery

2/27/2007 9:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0227_diddy_ex-1TMZ has learned Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for allegedly attacking a man at a Hollywood Oscar party.

Gerard Rechnitzer was at a post-Oscar bash Sunday night with his fiancee at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. At around 2 AM Monday morning, the 27-year-old Rechnitzer was on his way to the parking lot when he made a pit stop in the bathroom. When he walked out, he noticed his fiancee was surrounded by six men, including Combs. We're told the 5'7", 140 lb. Rechnitzer watched as Combs chatted up his girl for about five minutes, and then asked his fiancee to leave with him.

At that point, Combs allegedly told the woman he was having a party and invited her to come. Rechnitzer persisted and asked his fiancee again to leave with him. Combs then allegedly socked Rechnitzer in the jaw.

Rechnitzer, a real estate broker, called 911. The LAPD came out and took a report, but Combs had left before the cops arrived. An ambulance came but Rechnitzer declined treatment.

We're told the LAPD contacted Rechnitzer yesterday, and as many as five witnesses who observed the incident.

He's a good businessman and worked his ass off to get where he is..His not having musical talent shows you what driven determination can do for people.

And so he's an a**hole. All good businessmen are a**holes. And yes, I think the guy should sue him nevertheless. The Diddy and The Donald can afford their rogue a**holishness.

Maybe if the fiancee had promptly told P Diddy and the other guys "thanks" but she wasn't interested-- then promptly left with her fiance upon seeing him-- this wouldn't have escalated.

Frankly, Gerald should really take a serious look at his fiancee. If he wasn't there, would she have left with P Diddy?

#46 Kevin Brown: Let me give you a wake up call babe. N*****s (as you so elequently put it) come in all races. If you don't think there are white criminals, you have spent many years on another planet. Are you going to be racist against them too, you idiot? Just a thought.

Was what he did immoral absolutely! However, the fact remains he does have money and he is obviously a very smart business man. However,many of these "Hollywood" people, feel they can do what they please and they can because we worship them, follow their every move. My only question is....Did she go? I mean the article doesn't clarify.

I HOPE THE VICTIM SUES FOR TEN MIL.......To The fiancee...dump his low life ass. Do you really want your innocent babies subjected to a father who thinks so little of you to try to get strange p***y while he is out on the town? If you stay, you are a desperate loser!!!!!!

Combs is a conceited, untalented, immoral thug. He's gotten away with other violent acts; hopefully this time around, the self-important mouthbreather won't.

First of all, I see some gaping inconsistencies in this story. Not saying it didn't happen but from what I read here, if the guy came out the bathroom and simply WATCHED as some dudes was hittin' up on his female he just a plain punk anyway. A true pimp would have just rolled out of the bathroom and I don't care if Tyson Beckford is talking to your girl... if she is your girl all you have to say is "baby lets bounce" and she she should be on her way with you. Five minutes? If you ask me, the guy deserved to get punched if he had no control over his game like that. Bottom line is, if I was with a girl and she seemed like she was giving P. Diddy play, I would have just left her there because shes trash anyway.

Here's how I think it went down.... Homeboy comes out the bathroom. His fiancee is CLEARLY giving P. Diddy serious attention. He tells her to bounce. She refuses. He's getting pissed. Finally when he realizes that his girl is dissing him, he starts poppin' off with some insults to Diddy and his team who promptly knock that fool out. Thats how it really went folks.....

You know the old saying... "Don't hate the player hate the game"

I find Diddy to be overbearing and ostentatious with his bling bling. If the facts given here are correct, the victim certainly has the right to sue him. I agree that having millions of dollars does not give him the right to assault another person without having to pay the consequences. He always seems to be mixed up in something shady. I am remembering the matter of the shooting when he was with Jennifer Lopez.

Racist White Devils Still On The PROWL!!!

It makes no sense that you people turn everything into a discussion about color!!! What is it that makes you so angry to talk BS about someone you clearly dont know??? P. Diddy is more successful then you will ever be! So while your sitting up here calling him N*****s he's fratenizing with whites that you will never be privvy to even stand by!!! He doesnt have to have talent as you put it he's a producer so who cares if his lyrics are wack or lame as you put it.HE SIGNS CHECKS!!!!! Furthermore who are you to say if something is lame or not? Your the same ones that bang your heads into walls and sh*t and hop around like a bunch of lunatics considering it to be dancing... You devils have alot to learn.... First off you wouldnt know talent if it kicked you in your flat ass! You all can say what you want but THE CHARTS DONT LIE!!!!!! The next time you want to talk about artist with no talent think, Brittney she can't dance or sing, and she's crazy! Jessica I won't even waste time Im still wondering what she's famous for..... Her sister to for that matter...... Moving Right Along....... Marilyn Manson is another pitiful specimen of a creature, Im just trying to figure out what kind. Whatever he is he's definetly not from the planet earth damn FREAK!!!!!! In the words of FARRAH...... NO Peace No Justice!!!!!
