Rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has stunned fans by confessing he was a bed-wetter as a child.
The hitmaker, who is a spokesman for water brand AQUAhydrate, admits his love of sweet drink Kool-Aid growing up led to a number of embarrassing night time spills.
He tells U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, “One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. Never drank water. 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.
“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.”
And now he’s hoping to convince other kids with bed-wetting problems to stick to water in a bid to stave off embarrassment.
He says, “There is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So, to all you boys and girls out there… 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.”
