Diddy Turns Down American Idol


Al Sharpton, Sean Combs

Sean “Diddy” Combs has reportedly turned down a spot to be a judge on ‘American Idol’ because his ex girlfriend Jennifer Lopez is going to return to the show. The two dated for three years from 1999 until 2001. He “felt it was a ‘her or me’ situation,” a source tells Us Weekly. Diddy was also uncomfortable with being around Lopez’s manager Benny Medina who helped him launch his clothing apparel and fragrance brand Sean John, several years ago.
