The hip-hop entrepreneur, 32, is planning to open a restaurant in downtown Detroit, to be named Justin's -- after Combs's eldest son -- his associate, Andre Suite, tells the Associated Press.
There already are two Justin's: the original in New York and another in Atlanta. Both offer soul and Caribbean food. The new eatery will open in four to eight months at a location yet to be determined by Combs.
"We want to be right where the rebirth is -- one of the attractions in the downtown area," said Suite, the executive vice president of Justin's.
