Three down, three more to go for Sean “Diddy” Combs.
The proud father of six celebrated the high school graduation of his son, Christian Casey Combs this week with family and friends. For the momentous occasion, Diddy looked overjoyed as his son wore his cap and gown and took pictures with loved ones.
“Words cannot explain!!!!! IM SO PROUD OF YOU SON!!! Now let’s get it!!! @kingcombs has graduated! Look out world. It’s his turn now!,” he captioned the Instagram video of Christian getting his diploma. While sitting front row, Diddy also repeatedly thanks Kim Porter, the mother of Christian, for raising him to achieve this accomplishment.
Christian recently joined his father at the Bad Boy Family Reunion concert at Barclays in Brooklyn. Attending the show with his brother, Justin, the pair danced during the “Finna Get Loose” performance on stage.
The 18-year-old recently signed a record contract with Bad Boy Entertainment/ Epic Records. Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid was involved in the deal, sharing his excitement in a statement. “Our ability to pass the torch to a new generation is what music history is all about,” he said. Adding, “I have watched Christian grow into a very talented young artist and it fills me with great pride to share this with my brother and friend Puffy.”
Christian was elated about the deal as well, saying, “Yesterday was the greatest day of my life.” Noting, “Not only was it my birthday, but also the day a dream came true. I got signed to epic and BADboy records. I’m extremely thankful for everything that God has blessed me with and I will never take it for granted. Music is something that’s been part of me my whole life. #Epic #Badboy we got this!”
There’s no word on if Christian will also be attending college, in addition to making music. But as we all know, sky’s the limit.
