Despite never having been married, the rapper, musician, and record entrepreneur is parents to six kids by three separate women.
After his father was killed in 1974, Diddy was raised by his lone mother. He matured and distinguished himself as an outstanding student and leader at Howard University, where he majored in business administration, before quitting in the early 1990s to pursue a job at the record company Uptown Records.
Since then, Diddy, 52, has established his own record label, Bad Boy Records, released six studio albums, assisted in the careers of Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, and appeared in numerous films.
The hip-hop magnate, who also raised his six children, has had various monikers throughout the years, including Puffy, P. Diddy, and Puff Daddy. Diddy will get the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BET Awards this year.
According to the statement on the Diddy Lifetime Achievement Award page on the BET website, “Sean Combs has solidified himself as one of the most successful businesses and cultural icons of all-time.” “With an extraordinary career spanning more than three decades, Combs has acquired an unmatched influence only equaled by a demonstrated capacity to continually innovate, grow, and audaciously defy convention,” according to the biography.
The Black Entertainment Television network will present Diddy with the award, which is intended to recognise Black singers who have profoundly influenced the music business’s culture, emerged as authorities in their fields, and served as an inspiration to countless numbers of people.
BET CEO Scott Mills stated in a June 13 BET article that “Diddy has always been a pioneering force in our community, shattering barriers, hitting unparalleled heights, blazing new trails, and, in doing so, lifting the bar for all of us.” “Diddy has embodied Black Excellence with his virtuosity and versatility in the fields of music, media, culture, business, and philanthropy.
We are honored to have this chance to honor our friend Diddy’s tremendous accomplishments on our grandest platform.”

Quincy Taylor Brown
Quincy was born in 1991 to singer, songwriter, and record producer Al B. Sure! and model Kim Porter. He was given the name Quincy Jones in honor of his godfather, Al B. Sure! When Quincy was three years old, his mother started dating Diddy, who later adopted Quincy.
Diddy and Porter had four additional kids together before Porter passed away in 2018.
Quincy is now a popular actor, singer, and model. He has starred in movies including Brotherly Love and We the Party, and he also co-starred in the TV musical drama Star.
He has also followed in his father’s footsteps by releasing more than 10 successful singles.
Diddy’s first child with fashion designer and stylist Misa Hylton is named Justin. When he appeared on MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen in 2008 with his father, 1993-born Justin rose to fame all around the world.
Justin was a scholarship football player for the UCLA Bruins during his time at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where he also obtained a Bachelor’s degree in sociology. Justin earned his UCLA degree in 2016 and became the first Combs family member to complete college.
Christian, who was Porter and Diddy’s first biological kid together, was born in 1994, not long after Diddy and Porter began dating.
Christian, a musician better known by his stage name King Combs, started his musical career not long after graduating from high school. He started fusing rap and R&B genres to create his own music, influenced by his father.
He released his Cyncerely, C3 EP in 2019, which includes the tracks “Heaven Sent” and “Naughty.” Along with his singing career, has made numerous TV appearances, including Making the Band and Wild ‘N Out.
Diddy and businesswoman Sarah Chapman, who had known one other for years but had never publicly dated, welcomed Chance in 2006.
Porter said that Diddy had betrayed her in their protracted, on-again-off-again relationship after learning of Chance’s birth, and the two parted ways.
As co-parents to Chance, who is now 16 years old, Diddy and Chapman remain in contact with one another.
Chance attended the 2022 Oscars with Diddy as his date, and during a red carpet interview with Laverne Cox, Chance revealed that she wants to be an actor and named Zendaya as one of her main influences.
D’Lila and Jessie Combs
Twin girls D’Lila and Jessie were born to Diddy and Porter five months after Chance. D’Lila and Jessie were brought up with their sister Chance despite the conflict between their parents.
The trio of adolescent stars made an appearance at the Daily Front Row Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in April.
After his three daughters joined him for a Vanity Fair picture shoot in August 2021, Diddy gushed about them: He posted a picture on social media with the message, “I’m so proud of you girls! “You all appear to be strong, regal, and majestic. I count myself among the lucky men in the world.”
