In town promoting his new song I Want the Love, Sean “Puffy” Combs wanted to make sure all was well with the sound, so his management called the owners of E11even saying they just left the studio with the new single and wanted to hear the song one last time on a good sound system. Apparently naked women aren’t the only thing the swank strip club is known for; it also has a fancy Funktion One resolution 6 sound system. So Combs and his entourage showed up at the 24/7 club at 4 p.m. Thursday and played the track. Says our spy, “He and his crew jammed out and said they loved that fact that Miami has a 24-hour club.”

So the man we reported as being Alex Rodriguez’s father at Prime 112 last week? Not quite. It was Miami architect Ralph Choeff, who isn’t quite old enough to be ARod’s dad. “I’m crying from laughing so hard,” Choeff told us. At least he has a sense of humor.
