But now rapper Diddy has tried to play down his lavish life of excess in the latest interview with Los Angeles Confidential magazine. Ironically, the famous music mogul and business man claims that people have misconceptions about him due to his larger-than-life image. Diddy – whose real name is Sean John Combs – told the magazine: ‘I like nice things, but life’s pretty normal around here. ‘People think. ‘”Oh, Diddy’s probably running around his mansion spooning caviar into his mouth,”‘ he says with a laugh. ‘I don’t even like caviar’. The rapper, who came from a humble home in Harlem New York – to amass a fortune estimated at $550 million in various fields of business and entertainment. And the rapper, who has five biological children by three different women, claims that these ladies keep life real for both him and his children, whom he admits he sometimes spoils. ‘A lot of people say yes to me, I admit that. But I’m blessed by how much the mothers of my children love to tell me the truth. They don’t let me get away with anything!’ he revealed. ‘I don’t make apologies for what I have. Especially in these economic times, it’s an achievement to have financial success. If part of that is to spoil your kids, to give them things, it’s okay, as long as they appreciate what they have.’ Diddy – who is currently rumored to be dating R & B recording artist Cassie – claims he still gets a huge kick from unearthing new talent. The Shake Ya Tailfeather rapper claims that being a mentor is one of the most rewarding aspects of being famous for him. ‘It’s really like a spiritual type of experience, making that connection with someone,’ he adds. ‘You get these goose bumps when you encounter a diamond in the rough. You see potential. You see possibilities unfolding before your eyes. It helps me to help them.’
Oh yeah, Diddy is as real as they come. I mean, let’s be real … he does live a fabulous life and you know he loves luxury but I can absolutely believe that he likes the normal stuff too. I can see Diddy enjoying a meal at Chili’s from time to time … you know. As long as he keeps it real, I can appreciate his down-to-Earth rich guy persona.
