Blige: 'Diddy Tried To Clone Me'

R+B star MARY J BLIGE was horrified when her producer SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS tried to mould FAITH EVANS into her clone.

Blige was shocked when Combs marketed Evans as a copy of the NO MORE DRAMA hitmaker, when the latter released her debut album FAITH in 1995 - three years after Blige's debut album THE 411.

Blige says, "You know Puff (Diddy) was trying to put out a whole 'nother version of me which was Faith. I've been going through this for years.

"And I look at it and I'm like, 'If there wasn't a chick every year coming out trying to be me, they probably would have forgot about me by now.' So I have to appreciate that.

"At one time, I was like, 'What the f**k?' But I would never say anything about it."
