*The company behind Diddy’s Sean John store in New York City just filed a lawsuit against the owners of the building, claiming they put scaffolding in front of the door in 2006 and never took it down.

Diddy’s company, Christian Casey LLC, blames the scaffolding for its nearly 50 percent drop in sales since the metal poles began blocking their leased portion of the Fifth Ave. property.

The rap mogul’s company says it “substantially obstructed the view of the clothing and furnishings displayed in the ground floor windows.”

The lawsuit asks for $2.5 million in damages.
