Although his moniker has changed through the years — Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Puffy — Sean “Diddy” Combs’ name represents success. The 46-year old father of six, who’s dated singer Cassie Ventura on and off since 2007, returns to his roots this month with the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour, which kicks off September 1 in Chicago. In celebration of Bad Boy Records’ 20th anniversary (Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Box Set is out now), the tour features Diddy alongside Faith Evans, Lil' Kim and French Montana.
Ahead of the tour's first stop, the “Last Night” rapper shared 25 interesting facts about himself exclusively with Us Weekly.
