Rapper and record producer P Diddy, whose real name is Sean Love Combs, took to Twitter to praise Lil Nas X’s steamy performance at BET Awards 2021 but ended up getting trolled. The latter wrapped up his performance with a passionate smooch with a male backup dancer and Diddy’s cryptic tweet regarding the same backfired at him as the social media started speculating he was gay.

Lil Nas X had performed a brilliant rendition of his hit single 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ in the golden garb of a Pharaoh, accompanied by an all-male dance troupe in front of a throne. While the LGBTQ community praised the 22-year-old rapper’s performance, Diddy, on the other hand, had to face the brunt of his tweet. There have been rumors in the past of Diddy being gay and has also faced the heat for not being open about it.

Is P Diddy gay?

Taking to his official Twitter account, the legendary music producer extended his support to Lil Nas X with a simple tweet that read, “Lil Nas X did that!! Be fearless!!!” Twitter users did not waste any time to label him a homosexual and asked him to come out of the closet. The rumors of Diddy being gay also did the rounds on the Internet when Diddy hopped on a verse of rapper Blood Sugar’s 2018 song called ‘Hope’. His vocals are placed where two men are seen embracing each other in the music video. He raps, “Sometimes I ask myself, like / You know, what is it going to take for me not to be afraid/To be loved the way, like, I really wanna be loved? / But that I know how I really wanna be loved / But I'm, but I'm, like, scared to really, really feel that / You know, it's like you want something / But you don't know if you can handle it /Maybe one day I'll get over my fears and I'll receive."

Renowned rapper 50 Cent, who has had a long-standing beef with P Diddy, has called the latter gay on several occasions. While talking about Diddy during an interview on The Breakfast Club in 2018, 50 Cent asserted, “He doesn’t even know what he says is, like, fruity.” Despite getting trolled for years, Diddy has neither confirmed nor denied the gay rumors.
