You’d think that a world famous entrepreneur/producer/rapper/jacked water mogul like Diddy would have infinite sources of swag. Frankly, with all his riches and accomplishments, it’s hard to think of him ever being a shy, or awkward kid.
Well, there’s hope for all of us now, because just a few days after a media blitz announcing his deal to become the face of AQUAhydrate along with Mark Wahlberg, Diddy, 43, went on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday (March 1) to reveal one of the most shocking secrets from his past.
Yup, he was a bed wetter.
After proclaiming that he grew up drinking nothing but Kool-Aid and sodas as a kid and that AQUAhydrate has changed his life, Diddy copped to messing his sheets all the time, blaming it on the K-K-K-K-Kool-Aid.
“One thing I want to say is, I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. I never drank water,” Diddy told DeGeneres. “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.”
Wait, what? TMI Pee Diddy! (Sorry, we had to do it.)
“I guess I’m confessing that I used to be a bed wetter,” he explained. “So I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed, and the first day 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.”
Dr. Diddy then explained to Ellen’s young viewers that there’s something in sugar that makes you wet the bed. Which got us thinking, really?
“Excess sugar consumption, especially refined white sugar, can cause many health issues and conditions, including the need to urinate more often,” according to the Livestrong website. ” Too much sugar triggers the urinary tract system in an effort to eliminate the substance from within the body.”
