Movie star BEN AFFLECK will think twice before he invites his mum to a celebrity party again - after she embarrassed him with rapper SEAN 'PUFFY' COMBS.
The ARMAGEDDON star threw a 30th birthday party for pal MATT DAMON last month (08OCT00) in New York, and was excited when he received a call from Puffy, who wanted to attend the family bash. Affleck says, "I realise my mother is going to be there and she teaches fifth and sixth grade kids. I thought, if I can get a picture of my mum and Puffy, not only would it be the Christmas card, but it would make her like a god to her kids.
"Anyway, he brings JENNIFER LOPEZ and he's really very nice and very sweet, and my mum is like, 'Are you Puffy?' He's got this huge platinum and diamond cross, and she says, 'That's nice, is it real?' "He has a T-shirt with writing on it, and she's like, 'That's nice, what does that say?' and he gets the look from Jennifer Lopez like, 'I told you not to wear that shirt.' "He looks down and says, 'It says pimp,' and my mum's like, 'Pimp, that's nice. Are you a pimp? I've always wanted to meet a pimp!' "So, we got the picture of her and Jennifer Lopez and her andPuffy and now she rules the school." (KL/WNV/CPT)
