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.”
