The king of parties did the exact opposite to celebrate his 50th birthday. Yep instead of throwing an over the top bash to celebrate turning the BIG 5-0, Sean “Diddy” Combs decided to keep it low key instead.
The Bad Boy head honcho announced to his social media followers on November 4th that he would be celebrating the milestone at home with his children.
“I’m not having a party, y’all. Just chilling, chilling with the family today. Keep the circle tight,” he said in a post on his Instagram Stories. However, it seems Diddy’s family may not have got the memo, as later posts on the social media site showed him being cheered by a large group of friends and family, including his sons Christian, Quincy and Justin, as he blew out the candles on his three-tier birthday cake.
He also showed off several of the presents he’d received, including writing “My queen got me a new car” alongside a clip of him hugging a woman with an afro which appeared to be his mother Janice Combs.
Other presents included a diamond-encrusted portrait showing a close-up of his face and the face of his son Christian divided down the middle.
“Happy birthday pops. Twinny twin twin,” Christian, whose mother is Diddy’s late ex Kim Porter, wrote alongside a clip of the expensive gift on his Instagram Stories.
The rap mogul also marked the occasion earlier that day by getting himself a new tattoo on his ribs – the “most painful place to get a tatt” – and thanking fans for their well wishes.
Stars including Snoop Dogg, Nas, Timbaland and DJ Khaled were among the famous faces sending birthday love to Diddy.
The following day he also posted a video proclaiming that he’d be celebrating his birthday for 365 days, so a major bash may still be coming.
