Sean 'Diddy' Combs: 'I Used To Be A Bed Wetter'
Sean 'Diddy' Combs shocked fans earlier this week by confessing he wet the bed when he was a child. The rapper blames his love of Kool-Aid for the night time accidents.
He told Ellen DeGeneres, "One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. 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. OK, I guess I'm confessing that I used to be a bed-wetter. I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day that 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."
Diddy, who is the father of five children, has advice for kids with the same problem: "There is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So, to all you boys and girls out there... I'm telling you to drink water, OK? It will stop you from wetting the bed, and you won't be embarrassed in front of the girls at sleepovers."
Coincidentally, Combs is currently promoting a new water brand, AQUAhydrate, with pal Mark Wahlberg. The product is essentially a sports drink without all the calories.
