Diddy pulled double-duty Thursday night by beaming into son King Combs’ 23rd birthday in LA while he was in Miami for business.
TMZ released a two-minute video of the “I’ll Be Missing You” MC’s lifelike appearance at the sports jersey-themed soirée on the other coast. The hip-hop mogul used PORTL — an interactive hologram machine founded by David Nussbaum that Kane Brown used during his 2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival performance — to beam into the party.
Diddy sang “Happy Birthday” to “my life, my twin, my baby boy, my heart, my soul, my everything,” getting down on his knees for his grand proclamation to King (born Christian Combs). Meanwhile in Miami, Diddy’s daughters Jessie, D’Lila and Chance crashed the party virtually as well.
“I just want to tell you how much of a blessing it is that you’re my son. I feel like the coolest dad in the world just ’cause you’re my son,” the 51-year-old rapper said in his speech. “Every day that I see you, you taught me how to smile. And I just want to tell you I love you for that, for being my son. And I’m the proudest dad in the world.”
Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus, Swae Lee, Winnie Harlow and Young Thug were reportedly among the in-person attendees at Thursday night’s birthday bash.
On Instagram, Diddy shared a sweet father-son portrait for King’s big day. “Happy happy happy birthday to my King, my son, my twin, my love @kingcombs !!!” he captioned the picture. “I love you with all my heart and soul forever and ever and ever!! Lets f—ing go King!!”
“I LOVE you too!!!” the “Diana” rapper commented. “Let’s get it!!!”
