This J. Cole vs. Sean “Diddy” Combs fiasco only is only getting crazier as more details are revealed. Reportedly, the entire fracas popped off because an inebriated Diddy wanted to confront Kendrick Lamar over his “Control” verse.
What we know for sure is that Diddy, and Jay Z, hosted a MTV VMA’s afterparty at the Dream Downtown in NYC on Sunday, August 25. Both Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, as well as artists like Timbaland and French Montana, we in attendance. After that is when the various accounts start getting dicey.
Initial reports were that the Bad Boy founder and Roc Nation rapper got into an altercation, with witnesses saying that the latter made some “inappropriate” remarks to the former and his girlfriend Cassie that led to pushing and shoving. Both Cole and Diddy took to Twitter to say not to believe what was being written, though Mr. Combs did acknowledge that he and the North Carolina MC were yelling at each other.
Now Complex reports that the altercation started because Diddy wanted to step to Kendrick Lamar about “Control,” where he claims he is the new “King Of New York.” Their sources say Diddy was drunk and attempted to pour a drink of K. Dot’s head before Cole tried to stop him. This is allegedly caused the two to begin arguing which escalated when Cole supposedly put his hands on Diddy.
Clearly, the only people that know what really happened are J. Cole and Sean “Diddy” Combs. Also, whoever was in the vicinity with a camera phone let us all down.
