What ‘curious things’ did Usher see at Diddy’s New York home as a teen?



Parallel to a concerning video portraying Diddy supposedly ready to spend 48 hours with an underage Justin Bieber, a clip of R&B hitmaker Usher revealing what it was like living with hip-hop mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has also resurfaced online. All these eyebrow-raising videos reeled back onto the timeline after Homeland Security raided the rapper’s LA and Miami homes earlier this week in the wake of “a federal sex trafficking investigation.”

Usher addressed what ‘Puffy Camp’ was like during his 2016 appearance on the Howard Stern show,

Having co-founded Revolt TV in 2013, Diddy was gloriously famed for discovering breakout stars in the mid-nineties. However, with sour allegations growing against him, accusing him of all sorts of dark deeds like sexual assault and whatnot, his disgraced image is gradually becoming apparent, with the internet growing wary of his other potential immoralities.

The DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love singer again opened up about the issue in 2016 while promoting his film Hands of Stone. Guest-starring on the Howard Stern show, he described the “pretty wild” and “curious things” he witnessed at Diddy’s home.
