Sean “Diddy” Combs will join Gabrielle Union, Colin Kaepernick, and hosts La La Anthony and Anthony Anderson at Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Moms, an event all about showing moms the love they deserve.
Better known as Mama Combs, Diddy’s mom Janice worked hard to make sure that Diddy had everything he needed, setting the example for the hard work it would require for him to become the powerhouse star, entrepreneur and activist that he is today. Diddy is an awesome dad, and you better believe he got those parenting skills from his mama. “I did so many jobs at one time,” Mama Combs said during an episode of “Inside the Actors Studio.” “I worked at the United Cerebral Palsy, United Ed in Westchester County, I [drove] a school bus. I worked in a baby’s boutique shop and he never knew this, I worked at an after-hours spot, too. I have to come clean. I made more money because the men thought I was very glamorous. I used to pour liquor and they’d give me big tips. That’s how I was able to educate my children.”
You can watch him celebrate and honor the woman who made it all possible at VH1’s Dear Mama: A Love Letter to Moms on May 7th at 9pm ET/PT
