Diddy is taking some down time — whether he wants to or not.
On Friday, the Grammy Award-winning artist, 50, revealed to fans that he was undergoing his fourth surgery in two years. In a series of videos filmed from his hospital bed and shared on his Instagram Stories, Diddy apologized for missing his scheduled appearance in San Francisco before telling fans that he was going under the knife to repair a quadriceps tendon tear.
“I just found out yesterday, they squeezed me in for today,” he shared in a video in which nurses can be seen preparing his left leg for the medical procedure. “Pray for ya boy, I’m gonna see you all next time and make it up y’all.”
The music mogul then went on to speak about the cause of his latest hospital visit, explaining to followers that he’s probably “one of the most accident-prone people in the world.”
“I’m clumsy. I trip. I fall. I fall in holes. It’s always been like that,” he shared. “This is my fourth surgery in two years. I’ve had two rotator cuffs, a knee replacement, and now it’s on quad.”
He continued, “At the end of the day, this is God’s work to slow me down, take better care of body and eat right — and just stop treating my body like a machine.”
“This is unbelievable,” he added, before telling his fans that he doesn’t want any sympathy. “I did it to myself by accident.”
Diddy also recounted his surgical history in the Instagram Stories, sharing that he’s had about 10 medical procedures in his lifetime so far including four rotator cuff surgeries, a partial knee replacement and operations on his toe, wrist and bicep.
“I just wanna be honest with ya and say to everybody else that’s clumsy and accident-prone, I pray for you,” he said. “Pray for me. This is gonna be my last surgery, I promise.”
After sharing clips of his doctor shaving his leg in preparation for surgery, Diddy ended his health update with an inspirational message for the group of children fighting childhood cancer that he met with on The Ellen DeGeneres Show the day before.
“You guys are truly inspiring me now,” he said, before launching into a rendition of his 2001 song “Bad Boy for Life.”
He added, “Never give up. Praise. Peace.”
He also did a video discussing the revival of Making the Band on MTV and mentioned nearly every R&B group he could think of — except for Danity Kane.
It’s clear there’s some serious bad blood between Diddy and the ladies. Watch below.
