Diddy Joins Diana Ross on Stage at Birthday Party Singer Threw to Celebrate Turning 75
Diana Ross’ 75th birthday party celebration was one of the most expected events in the entertainment industry this year, and Diddy couldn’t be left out of it. The rapper arrived with his mother in tow, and later took the stage with Diana to perform one of his biggest hits.
Sean Combs and Diana Ross' friendship goes way back. Even though she started in the business almost 40 years before the music mogul became a huge name in the music industry, Combs eventually managed to earn the recognition of Diana and many other big names.
So, Diddy couldn't be left out of the big celebration that was Ross' 75th birthday party.
The music mogul made head turns at the party, looking dapper in a black tuxedo with a diamond encrusted lapel. He added even more flair to the look with a white shirt embellished with diamonds, black patent leather dress shoes and a diamond ring for the final touch.
Diddy melted hearts arriving at the party hand-in-hand with his beautiful mother, and later, as the celebration kicked off at the Warwick nightclub, he was seen standing close to Ross and her family while Beyoncé sang happy birthday to the iconic diva.
Combs also joined Diana on stage at the birthday concert that took place hours later in the Hollywood Palladium.
As the 75-year-old singer performed her hit single “I'm Coming Out,” she welcomed the rapper on stage to perform his 1997 hit "Mo Money Mo Problems," which was originally performed by Notorious B.I.G and samples the chores of Diana's song.
Diana also looked impeccable, wearing a body-hugging bright orange dress embellished with sequins. after calling Combs to the stage, she made sure to keep dancing around the rapper while the excited audience basked in the special moment of having the two stars sharing the spotlight.
And their collaboration didn't end there.
Later in the night, Combs' three daughters, D'lila, Jessie and Chance, were able to share the stage with Diana too, putting on their best The Supremes attitude to dance along while Ross belted out "Stop! In the Name of Love." Diddy also joined the girls for a portion of the performance.
Although Combs looked excited and happy while partying with such a legend, he’s said to be still mourning the sudden passing of Kim Porter, the mother of four of his six kids, last November.
Earlier in the year, the 49-year-old star took to Instagram with a message of gratitude for his mother and his daughters, stating that because they stuck with him through the difficult times, he was able to step out of the dark.
“Mama and the babies. GOD IS SO GOOD. THE GREATEST!!! I’m the luckiest man in the world. The way my family has been strong has humbled me. They have led me. They brought me out of a state of deep depression. Their strength and love brought me back into the light. I love my family!! THANK YOU GOD @CombsFamily #MamaCombs @the_combs_twins @myfancychance they’re all born on the same day!!!! Dec 21. My mother and the twins.”
Ross, on the other hand, is far from ending her birthday celebrations.
A new documentary titled “Diana Ross: Her Life, Love, and Legacy,” which features never-before-seen footage from her 1983 Central Park concert as well as new material, will hit theaters for one night only on March 28.
On top of that, Diana will be performing at Wynn Las Vegas this summer as part of her Diamond Diana residency.
