Diddy and Kanye West don't really look alike, but that didn't' stop New York-based art dealer Jeffrey Dietch from making an accidental case of mistaken identity.
According to Page Six, Dietch ran into Sean "Diddy" Combs at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Wednesday during Art Basel. He ran through the crowd, walked up to him, and said, "Hi Kanye." After some gasps from the crowd, Dietch immediately realized he made a major oops. Sources say everyone stood quiet until Diddy burst out laughing.
Dietch later e-mailed Page Six about the mix-up. "There was a big crowd gathered at the entrance to an art fair booth. I asked the dealer what the commotion was about and she said, 'Kanye is here.' I could only see the person from the back, and went over to say 'Hi Kanye.' To my great embarrassment, it turned out to be P Diddy. He thought it was very funny, especially since we had spent several hours together visiting my street art show in Los Angeles."
Diddy is hosting amn Art Basel party Saturday night at Dream Nightclub, 1532 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. There is a complimentary admission with RSVP. For information, go to www.dreammia.com
