The party went on for Sean “Diddy” Combs on Tuesday night, despite the cancellation of his London concert with rapper Snoop Dogg – but Diddy says it just isn’t the same without his pal.

“I am going through Snoop withdrawal right now. I miss him a lot,” Diddy told PEOPLE Tuesday night at a party he threw at Paper in London.

Snoop, 35, and Diddy, 37, are currently on a European tour and had been expected to play five dates in Britain, but their One Love Peace Tour UK was sidelined after Snoop Dogg, who was arrested in London last year, was banned from the country.

“We are going to get together in Dublin and we will be back here,” Diddy said. “We are going to work everything out so that we can come back because I think we can have a positive impact.”

Still, Diddy partied on without his friend – and helped Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas celebrate her 32nd birthday.

“I am 32 – it is wonderful I have had so many experiences so I am happy to be 32,” said the singer, who was accompanied by her boyfriend, Las Vegas actor Josh Duhamel

Added Fergie: “You can’t have a party on the same night that Diddy is having a party. You can’t compete, so expect me to join it. He is a really good friend of mine. He throws the best party.”

Diddy, who has some time to kill in London until his concerts in Dublin on Saturday and Sunday, said he has been hanging out with David and Victoria Beckham. On Monday night, he was spotted out dining with the pair.

“We’re both at the top of our game. A lot of people BS us all the time, but we really just check on each other,” Diddy said of the British soccer star. “He is a real cat. A lot of people you meet, you know, they ain’t really real. He’s real.”
