However, on Friday (Feb. 21st), the Grammy Award-winning super producer revealed to fans that he would be missing the first round of auditions due to undergoing his fourth surgery in two years.
In a video filmed from his hospital bed, Diddy says he will be missing the first upcoming auditions in Atlanta for his series reboot following his surgery plan to under the knife to repair a quadriceps tendon tear. Diddy says in the clip,
”I’m going to be watching and judging from my bed at home. I’m sending the Combs cartel down there.”
”It’s time we bring R&B back. Make and female singers, you can be any race, cred, color, sexuality, but you have to be able to sing and be able to dance.”
In addition, Diddy also reveals in a separate Instagram story video how he injured his quadriceps,
