ATLANTA (WAOK/AJC)-A Buckhead landmark that has been around since 1998 is rumored to be closing for good. Earlier this week the AJC reported that Sean “Diddy” Combs’ restaurant, Justin’s, was rumored to close today. The restaurant’s general manager, Solomon Fornie, denied the closure was permanent, instead indicating that the restaurant would undergo renovations for a short period before reopening.
A spokesperson for Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group (BBWEG), founded by Combs, has confirmed rumors that the 14-year-old restaurant, a longtime celebrity staple, will not reopen.
According to the statement, BBWEG closed Justin’s Restaurant in order to pursue “other business ventures in music, television, fashion, fragrance and spirits.”
