Mary J. Blige celebrated her 50th birthday on January 11. Making her feel loved on the special day, her close friend Diddy né Sean Combs wished her a happy birthday with a sweet post.

Diddy took to Instagram to share a retro photo of the stunning singer. The monochrome shot featured Blige looking like a snack in a white shirt that she donned with a furry jacket.

Pairing the outfit with matching pants, Blige rocked vintage Fendi sunglasses with a white frame and served looks. The photograph was snapped by Kevin Westenberg in 1997 as a part of her "Share My World" photoshoot.

"Happy Birthday to the Queen!!!!!!! Love you, sis," Diddy wrote alongside the stunning throwback. The singer's fans swarmed the comments section with the sweetest birthday wishes.


Meanwhile, the stunner celebrated her 50th with sizzling hot photos of herself rocking a skimpy bikini. She put her curves on display in the beach photoshoot that has the internet talking.

Diddy is one of Blige's oldest friends who has stuck by her side in the toughest of times.


The cross wrap metallic gold bikini was a perfect match for the singer who loves to wear her light braids long. What a way to enter the 50s! She is living her best life.

In November 2020, Blige partied with Diddy on his 51st birthday in Turks & Caicos. The tropical celebration was attended by the rapper's closest friends and family.


Blige and Diddy danced it away with Nas, breaking it down for the other party-goers. It is unclear how many people attended the party, but Blige and Nas seemed to be the only famous friends of the rapper who were in attendance.

Diddy is one of Blige's oldest friends who has stuck by her side in the toughest of times. He was even there for her when she was amid a bitter divorce battle with Kendu Isaacs in November 2016.

The duo enjoyed a nice dinner at Mr. Chow in Miami Beach after Blige's concert. She was going through a pretty tough time back then, and Diddy was there for her.

Diddy produced Blige's debut album "What's the 411?" in the early 90s. It is heartwarming to see how their friendship has only gotten more beautiful over the years.
