Diddy has canceled his New Year’s Eve party for the second year in a row due to COVID-19, TMZ reports. According to the outlet, due to the recent rise in positive Coronavirus cases in Florida, the 52-year-old mogul was once again forced to cancel his annual bash.

Diddy reportedly made the decision to cancel the party, which had a 500-person guest list, earlier this month in wake of the quickly spreading Omicron variant. According to NBC 6, Florida broke its record for most COVID-19 infections in one day on Monday (Dec. 27), reporting more than 32,000 new cases. The outlet added that the state’s cases have “skyrocketed” in the past week, which for many included holiday and travel plans.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Florida’s 32,850 positive Coronavirus cases recorded on Monday also marks the highest number of cases reported by a state in a single day across the country.

Last year, Diddy also canceled his annual NYE bash due to the pandemic.

“TO ALL MY FRIENDS: In efforts to keep everyone safe & healthy, unfortunately, WE ARE NOT HAVING A NYE PARTY THIS YEAR!” he announced on social media at the time. “I hope everyone had a blessed holiday and wish you all the best for the new year.”

He later added, “ATTENTION: THIS IS TO EVERYONE, ALL OF MY FRIENDS & FAMILY … I’M NOT CHANGING MY MIND. SEE YOU ALL IN 2021! LOVE YOU!”

The Bad Boy Records founder last held his star-studded New Year’s Eve party in 2019, which hosted the likes of Fat Joe, Meek Mill, DaBaby, DJ Khaled and more at Miami’s Story nightclub.

Although the continued pandemic will likely lead to more end-of-year celebrations being canceled, there are a few virtual options for those planning to spend the evening at home. Jack Harlow, Saweetie, 24kGoldn and more are set to perform for NBC’s New Year’s Eve special; and LL Cool J, Big Boi, Sleepy Brown and others will appear in ABC’s event.
