New York: He is not known for his own impeccable manners but rap mogul P Diddy has hired an etiquette coach to teach his staff some gentlemanly ways.
The `Coming Home` hitmaker has hired `international protocol expert` Dawn Bryan to teach his Bad Boy record label staff how to hold wine glasses and chopsticks, among other social niceties, reported New York Post online.
The music mogul recently tapped Bryan to give staff at his Manhattan-based label a course on proper dining etiquette, business protocol in foreign countries and other rules of conduct.
She recently taught Combs` cohorts lessons including use of dinnerware at formal events, how to hold chopsticks and how to present a business card in Japan, guidance on giving business gifts and how to choose wine, hold a wine glass and eat caviar.
Diddy, real name Sean Combs, has been on the wrong side of law many times, for alleged assault and gun possession charges.
