The rapper may be retiring from music, but that hasn't stopped him earning more than $100 million.
Sean Combs has been named the world's highest paid celebrity this week with $130 million in takings over the last 12 months. He beats last year's higest earner Taylor Swift, who only came in at number 49 this year and a comparatively meagre $44 million.

Diddy landed the top spot on the list of the top 100 of the World's Highest-Paid Celebrities according to Forbes' latest calculations. It's an impressive feat given that he came in at only 22 last year with $62,000,000, so he's more than doubled last year's intake.

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is using his status as the world’s highest-earning rapper to give back to the community, announcing that he’ll be opening a charter school in Harlem, where he grew up.
A report by the Associated Press says that the new school, called Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School, will open in the autumn of this year.

Friends and rumoured girlfriends joined Bieber for a massive birthday bash at his Bel Air mansion on Saturday.
Happy birthday Justin Bieber! It’s hard to believe that Bieber is still only 22, but after a massively successful 2015, the singer treated himself to a lavish early birthday party on Saturday at his Bel Air mansion.

Justin Bieber's love life - the saga continues. Maybe.
Despite recent events, it looks like Justin Bieber still has his fans, especially among the celebrity crowd. The singer cooled off from all the PR and legal problems he’s been having with a party in Ibiza on Friday night. And according to an ever trustworthy “unnamed source” for The Sun, he was joined by – get this – the latest PR project of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kendall Jenner.
Is JB making the moves on Kendall? We can't see it, but the rumour is going strong.
The young celebs attended a party for the birthday of Givenchi designer Ricardo Tisci. The guestlist also included Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (naturally), as well as Naomi Campbell, Jared Leto, P Diddy (or whatever he’s called these days) and Kate Moss – a fashionable crowd.
Dr. Dre has become hip hop's first billionaire, slightly re-organising Forde's five richest hip hop artists.
We hope there's no hard feelings! Dr Dre has overtaken Sean Combs AKA Puff Daddy (or is it P. Diddy, or Puffy, or Diddy?) to become hip hop’s richest man. The rapper has finalised a deal with Apple to sell his stake in Beats Electronics, which will give him a personal fortune of $800 million. Apple are allegedly purchasing Beats Electronics, which produce the popular Beats headphones, for $3.2 billion.
49 year old Dr Dre has become hip hop's first billionaire earner
Upon hearing the news Dre picked up a few bottles of champagne and headed down to the studio with friends Tyrese and F. Gary Gray, where he partied the night away, at one point announcing, “The first billionaire in hop hop…right here from, the mother f**king West Coast!”
P Diddy sparked speculation that he and Cassie are now engaged after posting a photo online of a huge diamond ring, but it turns out the music mogul was just buying a present.
Rumors began circulating that hip-hop mogul P Diddy popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, and recording artist, Cassie Ventura all because of a photograph.
The 44 year-old shared a pic on his Instagram page of a huge diamond ring which many of his followers thought was an engagement ring.
"Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like ! I just wanna Mk you smile :) #takeDat. !," the photo's caption read.
The Muppets sequel promises to be as brilliant as the first.
The full length trailer has just been released for The Muppets Most Wanted and boy, it looks like a thrill ride of a movie. The sequel to 2011's hugely successful The Muppets will see the furry gang plus some high-profile actors unite to take Kermit and Co. on a globe-trotting, crime-solving trip around the world.
Kermit...Or The Evil Constantine?
Filmed at London's Pinewood Studios, the plot follows Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and friends as they bask in the flow of their successful theatre tour. Things are peachy for the team until Kermit's evil doppelganger Constantine and his sneaky sidekick steal priceless jewels and the real Kermit becomes embroiled in a potentially career-destroying jewellery heist.
The new mother has appeared on camera for the first time since she gave birth to North West to discuss motherhood
On Friday's (2 August) episode of Kris, Kris Jenner's daytime chat show, there was a very special surprise for Jenner and the audience watching at home because Kim Kardashian made a very special appearance on the show to discuss her new life as a mother and tell her own mother how much she digs the show. Sean 'P Diddy' Combs was Kris' special gust on Friday's episode, and he brought with him a great little treat indeed; a pre-recorded video message from Kim.
Kim has been in self-imposed exile since giving birth
Kim appeared by herself in the video, with no Kanye or North by her side, making her first appearance in front of a camera in seven whole weeks. That's right, we've had SEVEN WHOLE WEEKS without one selfie or paparazzi shot of the tabloid's most favoured darling. We're not quite sure how to deal with that information... Anyway, in her video appearance Kim told her mother how much she loves the show, saying; "Hi mom, I just want to say congratulations on your new show. I'm sorry I couldn't be there in person, but I'm just loving life a little bit too much at home right now."
Rappers and period drams don't tend to mix... or do they?
When the news broke that P-Diddy was going to appear in Downton Abbey, only for it to be revealed as a joke, fans of the series will have breathed a sigh of relief: this is their serious period drama, and they don’t want a popular rapper in there messing about!
Can you imagine this guy in Downton? We want to see it
But consider this: would P-Diddy be a welcome addition to the Downton scene? This is what the popular show’s creator, Julian Fellowes is currently mulling over in his writer head. “I’d never says never, though I imagine he’d steal the scene, even if it was a small part,” Lord Fellowes said at the Life After Stroke Awards, at the Dorchester hotel in Mayfair, according to the Telegraph.

Is Diddy the first ever black character in the period drama?
You thought Gary Carr was the first black actor to be making an appearance in Downton Abbey? Think again, fools! There’s another man who has leapt into the ground-breaking role, and it’s none other than P Diddy himself!
The rapper recently told fans on his Twitter that he’s a huge fan of the period drama and started hinting recently that he could be making a surprise turn on it! "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" he wrote on the social networking site, adding "I'm going to be making a big announcement in the next hour-im excited for yall to hear!" He then wrote: "I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey".
Now before you all get excited, it’s of course all a spoof – yes, P Diddy may well be a fan of Downton Abbey, but surely there’s no way he’d ever appear on it. What he has done though is provide some comedy gold in the form of a hilarious spoof of himself appearing as the new Lord of the manor. Cleverly enough, he’s superimposed himself into some old Downton Abbey scenes and goes about his business in an amusing fashion, including hosting the world’s first ever ‘white party,’ and appearing in the trenches during the war. Have a look below – it’s genius.

Read on and watch some stunning footage...
P Diddy is to make a sensational cameo appearance on Downton Abbey! Or is he? The rapper has been telling fans recently on his Twitter that he’s a huge fan of the period drama and started hinting recently that he could be making a surprise turn on it! "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" he wrote at one point, followed by "I'm going to be making a big announcement in the next hour-im excited for yall to hear!" He then wrote: "I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey".
Oh my God! So this is pretty exciting stuff, or we thought it was. But it turns out the whole thing’s a spoof of course. There’s no way P Diddy would appear on Downton Abbey. However, Diddy did provide the following hilarious clip of himself making a surprise appearance as the first black character to appear on the drama. Cleverly enough, he’s superimposed himself into some old Downton Abbey scenes and goes about his business in amusing fashion, including hosting the world’s first ever ‘white party,’ and appearing in the trenches during the war.
To be honest, from the footage we reckon that if Diddy was in Downton Abbey, it would make the program a heck of a lot more enjoyable to watch. Check out P Diddy 'in' Downton Abbey on Funny Or Die.

The pair both denying smooching at the club
Kate tweeted, “Really??? Not at all true..“@TheCut: .@KateUpton and@IamDiddy seen sucking face and dining out!” Diddy tweeted, “Attn all Media. I don’t even know Kate Upton personally! I’m not dating her! What’s being reported is not true. END of story!” An eyewitness at LIV in Miami Beach told New York Daily News, which is what Kate is referring to in her tweet. “They were kissing, they weren’t hiding it,” said the source. P-Diddy had previously tweeted: “Miami… Ain’t no party like a @iamdiddy party … Meet me at Club Liv 2nite #CIROCBOYZ in the building!!!” Reports suggest that Upton arrived to the club after Diddy, and joined him in the VIP area, but it would appear – if the pair are to be believed – that that’s simply not true. Kate recently broke up with Major League Baseball player, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander.
Having enjoyed back-to-back SI swimsuit issue covers, Upton is now hot property, and any suggestion that she’s dating anyone famous usually gets taken too far. P-Diddy is almost twice Upton’s age (she’s only 20 remember!) so there’s another reason people were going a bit crazy over this.

Is the underwear model dating the man we used to call Puff Daddy?
P Diddy and Kate Upton both seem to have gotten over their most recent relationships and appear to have hooked up together. The pair were reportedly making no secret of their new liaison at club LIV in Miami Beach late last month (March 2013). An eyewitness told New York Daily News “they were kissing, they weren’t hiding it.” This is pretty fast work from Mr Sean Combs and from Kate, both of whom were dating other people until not so long ago.
20-year-old Kate was dating the Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, though she was definitely single by Valentines Day, when she stated that she was no longer dating Justin. P Diddy’s recently split from singer Cassie, too, despite having recently been seen house hunting with her. They were reportedly searching for a pad in Beverly Hills back in January so something must have gone wrong since then. Last September, he tweeted a picture of her, with the message “I’m a very lucky man #knowthat.”
After their meeting in Miami Beach, Upton reportedly met up for dinner with Diddy in New York. The pair apparently dined at Gemma, at the Bowery Hotel. A source told the Daily News “they were having dinner together,” which is what people generally do in restaurants, but you now, the whole kissing in a club thing is certainly something to get excited about, if you’re a fan of celebrity gossip.

Turns out the intended victim of the Steve Carell swatting prank was P Diddy - not that this prevented Carell's home from being invaded by police.
Steve Carell had his home surrounded by heavily armed police and SWAT teams from the Los Angeles Police Police Department earlier this week, but not because he is actually a drug barron or was being held hostage, no instead the comic actor found himself as the latest victim in yet another swatting prank. Well, it wasn't actually him who was the but of the joke as initially though, it was actually music mogul and Carell's neighbour P Diddy who was the intended victim of the prank, but that didn't stop the LAPD from getting a little confused (not for the first time this year) and storming both homes.
Diddy’s swanky L.A. home was invaded by more than a dozen police cars and two helicopters following the prank call being placed to a local dispatcher and although it was initially believed that Carell was the intended victim, it turns out Diddy was the prankster's main target. Police later announced the reason behind their annexing of Carell's property, revealing that they simply had nowhere else to go after completely surrounding the Diddy estate and the reason they invaded Carell's home was because they allegedly wanted to wanted to secure the location.
Swatting has become a popular pursuit for pranksters of late and involves a person making a hoax phone call to police, telling them that armed gunmen have entered someone's home and often adding that shots have been fired. On December 10 last year (2012), police arrested a teenage boy who they claimed had pulled a similar swatting prank against actor Ashton Kutcher and singer Justin Bieber. Due to the ongoing popularity the prank has conjured up, police are taking the issue increasingly more seriously and have warned potential swatters that they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law when caught.
Mark Wahlberg and P Diddy have launched their own brand of water.
If water isn’t enough for you, then perhaps AQUAhydrate water will be. See, normal water is for idiots, but Mark Wahlberg and P-Diddy’s water-drink is the water hard-working celebs drink. So it’s better.
"I grew up a Kool-Aid kid, I would drink sodas, juices everything ... and never drank water because I didn't like the way it tasted," said P-Diddy to MTV News at the announcement of his partnership with Wahlberg. "I drank this water, I loved the way it tasted. It gave me a certain amount of energy, a certain amount of focus and helped me with my recovery for those nights where ... I do work hard, but it is a known fact that I do play hard," added the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy. The pair, and the drinks company alike, will be hoping their enhanced profile will help launch AQUAhydrate into new realms of sales. But what is so different about this drink? Well, according to the fluid’s official site, “cutting-edge pharmaceutical grade UV filters clear impurities and strip water of unwanted harmful dissolved solids.” So we’re just drinking bad solids now. We still can’t figure out why is tastes different though.
Various famous faces were spotted at the Miami Beach Art Basel; it was the 11th edition of the show that is considered the most prestigious art show in America.
Rapper and producer P Diddy (aka Sean Combs) spends his Thanksgiving night among friends at Nightclub Bamboo in Miami. He dances and sings along to loud hip hop music while clutching a large bottle of something in his hand.
Rihanna hit stop four on her 777 world tour, where the singer hits seven cities across the globe in seven different countries in, yeah you guessed it, seven days, when she hit up Paris last night.
The Parisians in attendance were in for quite a treat when RiRi hit the stage at Le Trianon, and those at the after party were in for an even bigger treat as the Barbadian beauty partied the night away with some famous faces and a few fans too. With P Diddy (who she casually bumped into at the airport - as you do), Akon and Pharrell Williams in attendance, Rihanna outshone the party she threw on day 3 in Stockholm, the party where she gave out shots of tequila for her waiting fans, by quite some way.
The 'Diamonds' singer is practically running on empty, flying between countries with as much emphasis on partying as hard as can be as she has on actually performing. Still, when she stopped off at the shops of Paris before her performance she wasn't buying Pro-Plus, but instead she went shopping for some sexy lingerie! You have to think what goes through that sleep-depraved girl's mind sometimes.
As the world breathes a collective sigh of relief over Barack Obama’s re-election, some of the world’s biggest celebrities have tweeted their feelings about the news. Lady GaGa, Katy Perry and Puff Daddy were among the first to show their support.
After posting a rather bizarre tweet which we can only assume was the result of over-zealous, excited tapping on her smart-phone (it read “AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHRHRGRGRGRRRGURBHJB EORWPSOJWPJORGWOIRGWSGODEWPGOHEPW09GJEDPOKSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!0924QU8T63095JRGHWPE09UJ0PWHRGW”) Lady Gaga composed herself and wrote something a little more comprehensible, saying “I JUST GOT OFF STAGE IN COLUMBIA!! CONGRATULATIONS MR. PRESIDENT @BarackObama We are so proud to be American tonight! YES!!! YES! YES!!”
Fellow pop star Katy Perry was a little more restrained in her own message of congratulations, re-tweeting Barack’s own victory message and adding “The people have the power! Proud to stand by you for 4 more years.” P Diddy posted a photo of himself on Instagram with Barack Obama back in 2004, where Diddy reckons he predicted Obama would become the first black president. “The 2nd time around feels even better” he commented.

P Diddy has sent a reassuring message to his fans, following Wednesday’s car crash (October 24, 2012) in Beverly Hills.
A spokesperson for Diddy issued a statement to MTV News, confirming that he’s receiving treatment, following the accident, in which a Lexus turned in front of the hip-hop star’s Cadillac Escalade.

Mr. Sean Combs, colloquially known as P-Diddy, is recovering well from the car crash that saw his SUV get smashed up, as well has his pride. MTV reports that the rapper-turn-CEO has thanked his fans for their support.
On Thursday (October 25), a spokesperson for Diddy issued a statement to MTV News, confirming that he's receiving treatment following the accident. "Sean Combs sustained multiple injuries in yesterday's car accident including to his neck, ribs and collarbone. He is currently receiving treatment for these injuries from his physicians and would like to thank all of his fans for the outpouring of support that he has received since the accident." The collision occurred on Wednesday, October 25, after a car attempted a left turn in front of Diddy's SUV, causing both vehicles to collide. Cops arrived to find both Combs, his driver and fellow passengers in the car, all complaining of pain after the accident. Russell Simmons was one of the first to break news of Diddy's accident, tweeting, "Glad to hear my man Puff is ok..." and the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy also took to the micro blogging site to allay the fears of the fans, tweeting simply: "Woah...that was a close one!"
He'll be hoping to get back on his feet, as the past couple of weeks, have seen him actively promoting the work of his latest Bad Boy signee, Machine Gun Kelly, who recently released his debut album, 'Laced Up'.
Last night, Puff Daddy aka P-Diddy aka Diddy aka Sean Combs was involved in a car crash outside The Beverly Hills Hotel, in Beverly Hills.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino who gave a little information about the uncharacteristically tame incident for the rapper. According to Hoshino, Dids was a passenger in a Cadillac Escalade on Sunset Boulevard where a Lexus Sedan cut across the Cadillac, at which point the vehicles collided.
TMZ posted videos of the bashed-up Escalade and Diddy lying on the grass. However, although he complained of pain, he bypassed the offer of a lift to the hospital and said he would seek his own medical treatment. While used to wild parties with thousands of attendees or being arrested on firearms charges, a tiny little bump will barely raise the heart-rate of Mr Combs.

P Diddy was involved in a pretty serious looking car accident outside the Beverly Hills hotel on Wednesday evening (October 24, 2012). The rap mogul was arriving at the luxury residence when his chauffeured Cadillac Escalade collided with a Lexus RX.
In photographs provided by X17.com, Diddy is seen crumpled in a heap on the grassy verge, appearing to be in some distress. Eyewitnesses say Diddy and a second passenger remained sprawled on the lawn until hotel staff escorted them through the lobby. An ambulance eventually arrived at the scene, though it’s unclear whether the rapper sustained any serious injuries. Police sources say everyone involved in the accident complained of pain, including Diddy, his driver and the other driver. A report was taken at the scene, though no citations were issued.
It appears P Diddy’s accident occurred shortly after he arrived in Los Angeles from New York, where he had posted an Instragram photo on Twitter with the caption “Retweet if you like my view.” The overhead image showed Central Park and the statue in Columbus circle.
There was almost tragedy for the rapper P Diddy after a serious car accident in the USA yesterday that could’ve left him for dead. X17online carried the news that the accident occurred outside a Beverly Hills hotel, where the MC and music mogul was apparently arriving to stay. All of a sudden, his luxury chauffeured Cadillac Escalade found a Lexus RX SUV pull out in front of it , the result being a somewhat jarring looking smash up.
Hotel staff dashed out to help Diddy, who was with his driver and an additional second passenger, whilst those in the Lexus were also helped out. Pictures from the incident show Diddy lying down on the grass, clearly shell shocked at the incident. As well he might, it really could’ve been a pretty nasty one; the front of the SUV is totally smashed up in pictures posted on the X17 site.
As yet there are few details beyond the accident itself; there has been no word in who was at the fault for the incident and no arrests have been said to have been made. Diddy has apparently avoided serious injury, which will be a relief for a man whose business acumen and hard work has seen him become one of the richest men in the hip hop game.
Just over an hour ago TMZ reported that Sean Combs, AKA P-Diddy, was injured in a car accident in L.A. As of yet, it is unclear as to whether Diddy was badly injured in the incident. Although helicopters arrived at the scene, no one was taken away in an ambulance and Diddy was seen walking away.
According to a law enforcement officer, Diddy, his driver and the driver of the other vehicle complained of pain, but apparently there were no citations delivered. The incident occurred right outside the Beverly Hills Hotel, where employees rushed out to help, according to the Chron. Diddy also, at one point, lay down on the grass in front of the hotel, but got up again shortly later. The SUV that Diddy's Lexus ploughed into attempted to make a turn, but cut the Lexus off. It is unclear as to whom is responsible for the crash, depending on whether Diddy's driver pulled out into the road early or not.
Diddy is currently still in the process of attempting to get his music TV channel 'Revolt' on the air with Comcast. Though it was reported to be live late this year, still no date has been set.

His choco-licious cravings would make for comic gold if Forster were aiming for dark comedy. It really ain't much different from the classic line in Airplane! when that precocious little girl quips, "I like my coffee black, like my men!" But Forster chooses to play it straight and solemn, a hopelessly limiting choice. Without benefit of slapstick satire, Forster's glib presentation of interracial skin's allure feels ignorant and borderline offensive. The only thing missing is Halle Berry biting down on a vanilla wafer -- though she does beat her fat son for scarfing down chocolate bars ("I'll slap the black off of you!").

"Swingers" lounge lizards Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn are reunited in "Made" as a pair of feckless part-time boxers who try to make something of themselves by becoming inept bagmen for the mafia.
Another sardonic -- but more cinematically mature -- comedy written by Favreau (who also directed this time), the flick features Fav as Bobby, a hapless amateur of a pug who just wants to do right by his stripper girlfriend (Famke Janssen) and her angelic little daughter.
A downhearted but upright palooka, Bobby gets kicked off his "day" job as driver for his girlfriend's tease gigs when he punches out a grabby guest at a bachelor party. But his boss, a cranky back-room operator played with comedic panache by Peter Falk, gives him a chance to make up for it by going to New York to do a money drop for a high-rolling uptown gangster called Ruiz (hip-hop mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs).

The opening shot of "Monster's Ball" -- a strenuous, sorrowful, racially-charged drama about finding solace in unexpected places -- is a simple image of Billy Bob Thornton sleeping, his face almost entirely obscured by shadows.
Even though he doesn't move a muscle, his whole body seems somehow racked with so much tension and stress that you inherently understand this slumbering soul is a deeply tormented man.
Now, if he can project all that while completely inert, just imagine how powerful Thornton's acting becomes when he wakes up.
