Rapper SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS and model Tyson Beckford reportedly patched up their messy legal rift backstage at last Friday's (16SEP05) Fashion For Relief show.

Beckford was suing the hip-hop star-turned-fashion designer for $5 million (GBP2.8 million) claiming Combs' Sean John label owed him money after using his image.

But the pair were spotted making up and hugging after the New York show - which raised money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, reports the New York Daily News.
