Man Found Squatting in Diddy's Hampton Mansion

Sean Diddy Combs had an unwelcome house guest in his East Hampton mansion April 1.

Quamine Taylor, 30, reportedly took a train from Queens, N.Y., to East Hampton and directed a cab driver to take him straight to Diddy's mansion. He got around the security gate and let himself in through an unlocked basement door.

Once inside Taylor immediately ate Combs' food, drank his liquor and tried on his clothes.

It was a full 24 hours before Taylor was caught. He initially set off an alarm, but when security arrived, he was able to convince them that he had permission to stay there. It wasn't until a member of the household staff found him that the police were called and he was arrested.

More surprising is the fact that Taylor admitted to intruding previously.

I've actually been going to the house from time to time since 2001, he told The New York Post from jail. I really didn't go to Diddy's house because I'm a big fan of his. I just wanted to get out of the city for a while. I was actually hoping to stay for like 15 to 17 days.

Taylor's mother explained that he has a history of mental illness and has recently been off his meds.

He remains in the Suffolk County Jail on trespassing and petit larceny charges with $2,000 bail.
