Diddy's brave confession that he used to be a bed wetter when he was younger has seen the rapper receive widespread praise from fans.
The rapper featured on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show this week where he had a fun conversation with the popular host. He explained to Ellen that he grew up drinking nothing but Kool Aid.
However, his confession did not end there; he went on to explain that all the sugar in Kool-Aid drinks used to make him regularly wet the bed.
The rap star said, "One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. I never drank water. I used to pour a half a pound of sugar into the Kool-Aid. Besides it having me bouncing off the walls, I used to be a bed wetter … I guess I'm confessing that I used to be a bed wetter."
He added that overcoming his bed wetting issues also helped make him the man he is today: "So I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day I had a sleepover and I didn't wet the bed, it was, like, one of the greatest days of my life. It gave me the swagger that I have today because I stopped wetting the bed."
The Inquisitr has noted however, that Diddy made his new admission while promoting one of his new related products. Diddy is reportedly pushing his new water drink, AQUAHydrate.
However, that fact has not taken away from his brave confession for many of his fans.
"Wow Diddy just admitted to wetting the bed. I'm sure a lot of kids will take comfort in his confession," said one Facebook user, Jpegger.
