Sean “Diddy” Combs, the rapper, songwriter, and record executive has seven children with four different women, despite never having been married. His single mother raised him after his father was murdered in 1974.
He became an exceptional student and leader at Howard University, where he studied business administration before dropping out to work at record label Uptown Records in the early 1990s.
Diddy, now 52, has released six studio albums, founded his record label Bad Boy Records, helped launch the careers of Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, and acted in numerous films.
He has gone by nicknames, including Puffy, P. Diddy, and Puff Daddy. In 2022, Diddy received the BET Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors Black musicians who have shaped industry culture, become leaders in their fields, and inspired generations.
According to the BET website, “Sean has cemented himself as one of the successful entrepreneurs and cultural icons,” His career spanning over three decades has earned him an unrivaled influence only matched by his proven ability to consistently innovate, evolve, and boldly defy convention.
Quincy Taylor Brown
Born in 1991 to parents Kim Porter and Al B. Sure!, a songwriter and record producer, Quincy was named after his godfather, Quincy Jones, who had mentored his father. Quincy’s mother started dating Diddy at three, who later adopted him. Diddy and Porter had four more children before Porter’s passing in 2018.
Today, Quincy is a thriving actor, singer, and model, having appeared in films such as We the Party and Brotherly Love (where he played the lead role) and having co-starring part in the musical drama TV series Star. Quincy has followed in his father’s footsteps and has released over 10 popular singles.
Justin, the son of Sean “Diddy” Combs and stylist/fashion designer Misa Hylton, was born in 1993 and rose to international fame in 2008 after appearing with his father on MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen.
He pursued his academic career at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and earned a Bachelor’s degree in sociology.
While at UCLA, Justin was a defensive back for the UCLA Bruins football team and was awarded a scholarship. In 2016, he became the first member of the Combs family to graduate from college.
Diddy posted passionate captions on Instagram after Justin graduated to show his pride, saying, “Never give up your hopes or faith! One of the most joyful days of my life was yesterday! @princejdc I’m really pleased with you!”
Christian is the couple’s first biological kid, born in 1994, not long after Diddy and Porter began dating. Christian, a musician better known by his stage name King Combs, started his musical career shortly after graduating high school. After his father’s inspiration, he started fusing rap and R&B genres to create his songs.
He released his Sincerely, C3 EP in 2019, which includes the tracks “Heaven Sent” and “Naughty.” In addition to his music career, he has appeared in numerous TV programs, such as Creating the Band and Wild ‘N Out.
In 2006, Chance was born to Diddy and businesswoman Sarah Chapman, who had been a long-time friend of Diddy’s, although they never publicly dated.
The news of Chance’s arrival caused Diddy’s then-girlfriend, Porter, to accuse him of betraying her in their on-and-off relationship, leading to their eventual split.
Despite their past, Diddy and Chapman continue communicating as they co-parent their now 16-year-old daughter, Chance. Diddy even took Chance as his date to the 2022 Oscars, where she revealed in a red-carpet interview with Laverne Cox that she aspires to become an actress and mentioned Zendaya as one of her biggest inspirations.

The twins D’Lila and Jessie were born to Diddy and Porter only five months after their son Chance. The three siblings were reared together despite their parents’ differences. At the Daily Front Row Awards held in April at the Beverly Wilshire 4 Seasons Hotel, the trio made a public appearance.
In August 2021, Diddy shared a Vanity Fair photoshoot with his daughters and expressed his pride in them on social media.
