Members of Sean Combs' entourage were forced to abandon cases of vodka at a French airport after customs officials told them their stash of booze was too big.
The rapper's aides surrendered several bottles of Ciroc vodka, of which Diddy is the brand ambassador, after they were stopped by officials at the Cote d'Azur airport in Nice last week (ends31Jul11).
According to the New York Post's Page Six, the employees were bringing the liquor from the U.S. for Combs' parties in St. Tropez.
A source tells the publication, "His entourage was stopped at customs for having too much of the product. So Diddy's people left a few cases with airport agents."
The hip-hop star is currently on a tour of the French Riviera to promote the vodka brand.
