Sean “Diddy” Combs is recovering after being involved in a traffic accident in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday.
The actor-rapper-producer-entrepreneur was a passenger in a Cadillac Escalade that collided with a Lexus on Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Drive, according to a press release issued by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
“Sean Combs sustained multiple injuries in yesterday’s car accident including to his neck, ribs and collarbone,” his rep told CNN. “He is currently receiving treatment for these injuries from his physicians and would like to thank all of his fans for the outpouring of support that he has received since the accident.”
Diddy tweeted about the accident on Friday, writing, "Woah...that was a close one!" and “The only reason I'm still here is through Gods Grace!!! Not trying to be dramatic just being Real!”
The entertainment mogul, who has gone by many monikers, such as Puff, Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, King Combs and, for one week, Swag, added: “Thank you for all you prayers support and calls! Thank you for caring about a brother :). I means a lot. Love yall!!! Let's Go!!!”
