Vandal topples wax statue of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Someone attacked a statue of Sean “Diddy” Combs at Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York, shoving the rap impresario’s likeness so forcefully it lost its head, police have said.

Investigators are continuing to look for a suspect over the incident, which happened on Saturday night.

Police said a man entered the museum near Times Square at around 8.45pm local time, went to the statue and knocked it to the ground.

The head fell off as the figure toppled.

The Grammy-winning rapper and hip-hop mogul attended the statue’s unveiling in 2009.

It depicts him in the white dinner jacket that he wore on billboards and other advertisements for his I Am King fragrance.
