Sean Combs, whose stage names include Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and simply Diddy, is a multi-talented personality who is most famed for his music skills. He earned 3 Grammys, 3 BET and 2 MTV Video Music Awards.
Combs started his music career by being an employee of Uptown Records prior to establishing Bad Boy Entertainment in 1993. He presented his first album No Way Out in 1997, which turned an artist into an international star in the wink of the eye as it gained 7-time platinum certification. It remains his greatest album to date though it was followed by four more ones.
Having launched another project, band Dirty Money, Diddy recorded a collaborative album titled Last Train to Paris. Moreover, he collaborated with many other artists, including R. Kelly, Usher, Pharrell and Christina Aguilera.
Sean Combs also deals with acting. He made a debut in the 2001 movie Made and later had parts in Monster’s Ball, Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power, Get Him to the Greek and I’m Still Here. Besides, he starred in Broadway’s production of A Raisin in the Sun plus had his own reality show I Want to Work for Diddy.
Additionally, Combs is a businessman, who owns clothing line Sean John and an umbrella company. He used to have two restaurants. Apart from making money, the celebrity also donates large sums to charity and runs Daddy’s House Social Programs.
In 1993, P. Diddy welcomed his firstborn son Justin, with designer Misa Hylton-Brim. From 1994 to 2007, he dated Kim Porter on/ff. Sean adopted Kim’s son Quincy before their son Christian drew his first breath in 1998. In 2006, their family was expanded by twin girls, Jessie and D’Lila. Several months before their birth, Combs welcomed his elder daughter Chance, a result of his affair with Sarah Chapman.
In 1991-2001, during his breakup with Porter, the artist was romantically linked to Jennifer Lopez. In 2012-2018, Sean was in a relationship with singer Cassie Ventura. And in 2019, he had a brief affair with Lori Harvey, Steve Harvey’s stepdaughter.
A curious fact: being a child, Diddy huffed and puffed when he got angry. That’s why he was nicknamed Puff.
