Take That! Take That! Actually, keep that and wash the sheets while you’re at it. Diddy opened up about his secret childhood shame on a recent visit to the Ellen DeGeneres show to promote his new brand of water, where he claimed Kool-Aid was the culprit for his pee-pee problem.
Via DailyMail reports:
‘One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. I used to pour a half a pound of sugar into the Kool-Aid. Besides it having me bouncing off the walls, I used to be a bed wetter.
‘OK, I guess I’m confessing that I used to be a bed wetter. So I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day that I had a sleepover and I didn’t wet the bed, it was, like, one of the greatest days of my life.
‘It gave me the swagger that I have today because I stopped wetting the bed.’
The 43-year-old musician – who has launched his own water brand, AQUAhydrate, with actor Mark Wahlberg – also encouraged children to drink as much H2O as possible to avoid the same red-faced moments he had as a child.
He said: ‘There is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So to all you boys and girls out there, as Muhammad Ali used to tell you [to] brush your teeth, I’m telling you to drink water, OK?
‘It will stop you from wetting the bed, and you won’t be embarrassed in front of the girls at sleepovers.’
Wait, Diddy was having co-ed sleepovers as a kid? No wonder he grew up to be such a freak.
And while we’re on the subject of growing up and rites of passage, hit the flip to see what momentous occasion the Diddster celebrated with his twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James!
