Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs will discuss his friendship with the late Whitney Houston today on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, which airs here at 4 p.m. weekdays on WXIA.

“I somehow got on her wedding invitation (list),” he said, according to a transcript of the visit provided by the show to the AJC. “I was just like, ‘oh my God. I’m at Whitney Houston’s wedding.’”

Diddy has been pals with Houston’s ex-husband, too.

“I was a big Bobby Brown fan,” he said. “Through out the years I got to meet her. She was so full of life. So full of just joy. She always made you feel that she noticed you and recognized you and spoke to you. She’ll definitely, truly be missed.”

Will he make the invitation list for her funeral, too? It will be held Saturday in her native Newark, N.J., in the church where she grew up.

Diddy tweeted a number of times about the singer’s death: “Whitney Houston!!! OMG!! I really can’t believe this.. This is one of the saddest days ever;” “I am so sick;” and then, simply, “#RIPWhitneyHouston.”

She talked to people that could help her make a come back or that she could ask for money. She treated people like trash and were beneath her. She was a DIVA and a Diva like people want to use in a good sense.

It’s obvious that you chose to use this forum to trash Whitney’s legacy. You didn’t know her and that’s a fact. You KimZ’sPackage are gutter TRASH!

It amazes me how evil and cruel people are and can be. Whatever her demons were, they are between her and God. I wish people would respect the fact that we each choose our own paths. Right or wrong respect their choice. You don’t have to support it. For crying out loud – she has a child who is in mourning. I wish people would keep their negative comments to themselves. Nobody is perfect.

I don’t agree with a lot of her choices. I loved her and always will. My heart goes out to her ENTIRE family.
