Want to know what a day in the life of P. Diddy is like? One jobless New Yorker apparently did.

Quamine Taylor, 30, of Queens, N.Y., was arrested this month in the rap mogul's luxe Hamptons summer home where he had apparently spent almost a day raiding Diddy's fridge and liquor cabinet and lounging in his clothes, The New York Post reported.

After getting around a security gate and entering the house through an unlocked basement door on March 31, Taylor spent nearly 24 hours in the home before a caretaker spotted him the next day and called the East Hampton Town Police, cops said.

Before then, Taylor had set off an alarm around 1 a.m. but managed to wave off an alarm-company employee and a cop by convincing them he had permission to be there.

Taylor was arraigned on trespassing and petit-larceny charges and is being held in the Suffolk County Jail. He hasn't posted $2,000 bail.

"I’ve actually been going to the house from time to time since 2001," Taylor told the Post. "I just wanted to get out of the city for a while. I was actually hoping to stay like 15 to 17 days."

His mother said, however, that Taylor has a history of mental illness that may have played a role in his intrusion.

“He has been off his meds for a while. We have been trying to get him some help," she said, according to the Post.

Taylor isn't the only person allegedly drawn to Diddy's Hamptons home.

Two years ago, a woman claiming to be the rapper's wife was arrested in East Hampton after she was reportedly found twice at a home she mistakenly thought was his.
