Is Diddy Gay? Addressing the Rumors and Facts

No, Diddy is not gay, contrary to the rumors that have been sustained for a very long time, drawing questions on his sexuality. P. Diddy is a father of 7 kids and has insisted that he is neither gay nor bisexual.

The rumor that Sean “Diddy” Combs may be gay is one of the gay rumors in Hollywood that has been going on for a long time. At the forefront of the claims that the music mogul may be denying his sexuality is 50 Cent, who first began questioning if Diddy was gay in 2014. As against all that has been said and suggested, here is all we know about the subject.

Is Diddy Gay?

No, Diddy is not gay. This is according to the rapper, who has maintained years after rumors began going around about his sexuality, that he is straight. For the better part, Diddy did not deem it fit to reply to the accusations and claims that he was gay.

However, he only decided to set the record straight once when he revealed that if he was ever thinking about any man, it was to uplift him. This has not seemed to solve the gay rumors surrounding him because there are still many claims to that effect.

Diddy Has Never Been Linked To Any Man In The Past

With all the questions that are being raised on the sexuality of the rapper, he has never been linked to any man in the past. But even this is not enough, as there is the idea, as sold by some, that he might be using his closeted sexuality to take advantage of young guys in the industry.

Among the reasons why, even without being ever linked to a man, the rapper’s sexuality has remained a topic of controversy is because of his verse in Blood Orange’s 2018 track Hope, where he claimed he wanted to be loved, but he was scared to feel that. He added that it was like you want something but are scared if you can handle it.

More so, in 2019, the rapper revealed that he suffered from depression. Fans rushed to insinuate that it was because of his sexuality. They jumped on him on social media with advice that he should just come out of the closet and live his life as a gay man.

The silence that Diddy has maintained for a long time has also not helped him. It made it easy for others to believe that since it took him so long before coming out to deny the claims, even though he was never linked with another man, it could be true that he is gay.

The Rumor About Diddy’ Sexuality Started Many Years Ago

The rumor suggesting that Diddy is gay has existed for a long time. At the forefront of the claims is fellow rapper 50 Cent. The two men have not been best of friends and 50 has never had any issue dragging Diddy with issues of his sexuality.

In 2014, 50 shared two separate photos to suggest that Diddy might as well be gay. In the first video, Diddy was standing very close to Rick Ross, while in the second, he was with Steve Stoute. The rapper added the caption, “I ain’t saying nothing, but something ain’t right.”

The next chance for 50 to attack the sexuality of the I Need a Girl rapper came in 2017 when Diddy was seen with Lee Daniels, an openly gay individual. He accompanied it with a joke suggesting that Diddy was gay.

While 50 had continued to take advantage of whatever opportunities came his way to add to the debate of whether Diddy is gay, he was also once accused of being a member of the LGBTQ community by his former girlfriend, Vivica Fox. She made suggestions that the G. Unit frontman could be bisexual.

Even before 50 Cent started claiming Diddy may be gay, Xzibit once claimed that he was taken to a gay club by the rap mogul. According to X in an interview, Diddy took him and Karirine “Superhead” Steffans to a club where they saw two guys kissing and another dancing naked. Xbiti left the bar immediately, believing it was a gay club.

While the interview had gone around with the idea that Diddy took X to a gay club, it was later clarified that the name of the club is Space. Also, it was an after-hours spot.

Yet another person who suggested that Diddy was gay was his former bodyguard, Gene Deal, who claimed he saw the rapper run in his birthday suit with a man.

Jaguar Wright also made it to the list of those questioning Diddy’s sexuality. She claimed that a former worker of Diddy, an attorney, walked in on Cristopher Willimas performing oral on Diddy. After the incident, she alleged that Diddy told her he could get anyone to do whatever he wanted for money.

He Has Dated Many Women In The Past

Contrary to the claims that the rapper might be gay, Diddy has dated many women in the past, which has fuelled the rumor that he might be bisexual. Whatever the case, he has never been married, even though he has fathered 7 kids with different women.

Among the many women Diddy dated is Kim Porter, whom he described as the love of his life. Diddy and the former model started their relationship in 1994, and they were on and off for over 10 years before they broke up in 2007. The pair had their first child together, Christian Combs, in 1998.

Although their relationship ended in 1999, they were back together in 2003, after which they had their twin daughters, D’ Lila Combs and Jessie Combs, who were born in December 2006. A year after their daughters were born, Diddy and Porter went their separate ways. However, they remained very close until the death of Porter in 2018 at the age of 47.

Other women he dated include Misa Hilton-Brim, with whom he had his first child, Justin Dior Combs in 1993, Sarah Chapman with whom he welcomed his daughter Chance Combs, and Dana Tran, who became the mother of his daughter Love Sean Combs.

The love life of the rapper also includes women such as Lori Harvey, Gina Huynh, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Aliana Mawyla, Leah Remini, Blu Cantrell, and Foxy Brown. The rumor mills have also linked him to other famous individuals, including Cameron Diaz, Naomi Campbell, Karrine Steffans, Lil’ Kim, and Mary J. Blige.

In 2022, Diddy, then-52, got into a relationship with the 28-year-old rapper Yung Miami whose real name is Caresha Romeka Brownlee. The pair dated for close to a year before they went their separate ways in 2023.
