Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy, but best known as Diddy, has gone by many names in his career but did you know he was once a fiance too?
While playing a game of “Never Have I Ever” on The Ellen Show, the talk show host asked Diddy and fellow The Four stars Fergie, DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor and music exec Charlie Walk, if they’d ever been engaged and kept the news a secret from the public.
The music mogul, who was once known for his playboy way, initially responded that he had never been engaged before, then told a story about a time when he popped the question but the engagement only lasted a few hours.
“I ain’t gonna lie, it was like for four hours. It was for four hours, I honestly did. I was engaged for four hours and I kept it a secret forever — until now,” the 48-year-old admitted.
Diddy is no stranger to love, however.
The star is a father to six children, with exes Misa Hylton-Brim, Kim Porter and Sarah Chapman and publically been in a committed relationship with 31-year-old singer, Cassie, since 2012.
Although that trip down the aisle never happened, Diddy isn’t against saying “I Do” someday–it just might not be anytime soon.
In June, Combs told PEOPLE that the severity of marriage is the reason he hasn’t swapped vows with anyone but that doesn’t mean it’s off the table.
“I think marriage is so serious,” he said. “You’re making a commitment to somebody under [the] law. Unless you’re ready to do everything that’s said, then you shouldn’t get married. Life is a journey. So I have to get myself all the way together before I’m really ready for [marriage.] That, for me, is something very, very serious.”
He added: “One day, I hope that I find that within myself and that’ll I’ll be able to do it.”
