Well looks like Sean "Diddy" Combs is getting out of the restaurant business. BET reports that his 14-year-old restaurant in Atlanta, called Justin's after the rap star's first-born son, has closed for good.
A spokesperson at Diddy's Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group said the company is pursuing other ventures, "in music, television, fashion, fragrance and spirits."
The latter, spirits, is definitely popular with the celebrity crowd, and Diddy has been a brand ambassador for Cîroc vodka since 2007. He's even reportedly referred to himself as "Cîroc Obama." If he does release his own vodka line, he'll be joining the likes of Drew Barrymore, who released a wine label, and George Clooney (tequila).
Justin's was founded in New York City in 1997, which BET reports closed in 2007. His Atlanta branch, which opened in 1998, was open for a grand total of 14 years — not bad for a celebrity restaurateur.
