P. Diddy Net worth
Known by his stage name P. Diddy, the rapper, musician, record producer, entrepreneur, and fashion designer has a fortune of $900 million. In addition to his own musical and business endeavors, Diddy is widely recognized as the founder and CEO of the record company Bad Boy Entertainment.
The Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and Faith Evans were just a few of the singers whose careers he either started or helped guide; he also produced songs for Usher, Lil’ Kim, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, and TLC. He earned his first of many Grammy Awards for Best Rap Album for the first of several albums he would release in the late ’90s.
He kept releasing albums and picking up awards throughout the ’90s and ’00s. His songs did well on the radio and among fans, but he received criticism from certain hip hop musicians for overusing samples and featuring other artists.
Not only did his music gain him widespread attention, but so did his personal life, which included many fights and even a shooting in a nightclub, as well as relationships with several famous women, including Jennifer Lopez. There was also the fairly successful acting career, the media firm, the liquor brand, the reality programs, and the numerous clothing lines he founded.
Diddy has been one of the world’s highest-paid and wealthiest entertainers for almost two decades. He makes between $50 and $100 million on a typical year as of late. Including music royalties and investments in products like Ciroq vodka, he is expected to earn well over $1 billion from the year 2000 to the year 2020. He is also involved with the tequila company DeLeon and the Aquahydrate brand of alkaline water.
Since 2007, when he and Diageo formed an equal partnership to market and promote Ciroc Vodka, Combs has worked in the alcoholic beverage industry. Together, they were able to make Ciroc one of the most recognized vodkas on the market. Combs and Diageo bought the DeLeon tequila company in 2013. DeLeon is an exquisite tequila produced entirely from the Blue Agave plant.
Critics and customers alike have praised the product. According to a legal document submitted in June 2023 in the wake of a lawsuit brought by Diddy against Diageo, in the years between 2007 and 2023 Diageo paid Diddy $1 billion for his work with the corporation. That’s probably a lot more money than he made from his music career.
P. Diddy Private Matters
Combs has a large family, as he has seven kids. In 1993, he and his wife, the designer Misa Hylton-Brim, welcomed their first child into the world. From 1994 to 2007, he was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Kimberly Porter. Their blended family now includes three children: a son, twin daughters, and a son adopted by Combs from Porter’s previous relationship.
Porter died in November 2018 from complications related to pneumonia. Combs also shares parental responsibilities for a daughter with Sarah Chapman, whom he wed in October 2007. From 2007 till 2018, Diddy dated model Cassie Ventura. His seventh child with Dana Tran was a daughter born in October of 2022.
Combs has a history of legal trouble. During a night out with his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez in December 1999, he was shot at while visiting Club New York in Manhattan. After a police probe, Combs and fellow rapper Shyne were jailed on weapons charges.
Combs was subsequently charged with four weapons-related offenses and bribing his driver to claim ownership of his gun, and underwent a highly publicized trial. In 2001, he was arrested in Florida for driving with a suspended license.
