Speculations around P Diddy’s Sexual Orientation

Legendary music maestro P Diddy voiced his admiration for Lil Nas X via a tweet saying, “Lil Nas X did that!! Be fearless!!!”. This sparked speculations and Twitter was quick to label him as gay, suggesting he should openly admit it. Similar rumors swirled previously when Diddy contributed a verse to Blood Sugar’s 2018 track ‘Hope’. In the music video, his voiceover coincides with a scene of two men in an intimate embrace. His lyrics hint at a fear of expressing love, which led some to question his sexual orientation.

Adding fuel to the speculation is P Diddy’s long-time adversary, rapper 50 Cent. He has, on multiple occasions, insinuated that Diddy might be gay. In a 2018 interview on The Breakfast Club, 50 Cent commented, “He doesn’t even know what he says is, like, fruity.” Despite years of such rumors and comments, Diddy has yet to either confirm or refute these allegations about his sexual orientation.
