Did J. Cole and Diddy get into a fight after the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards? Yesterday, a rumor began online that the two got into a brief scuffle during a VMA after party, which left Cole being kicked off an elevator. Now, the two are addressing the fight rumors on Twitter.
Diddy dispelled any talk of a fight with, "I usually don't address rumors but I got too much respect for my bro @JColeNC. We are friends The rumors are not true. We had a great party." Cole added, "people will believe anything" after ReTweeting a fan "Damn @JColeNC caught a fade by Diddy tho?? #liteSkinN----as lose again."

An account by the NY Daily News claims that Diddy and Cole exchanged words that involved Combs' girlfriend Cassie and it got so bad that guest Jay-Z stepped in to shield Beyonce. “We were all dancing and the fight breaks out, and it happened so quickly and bottles were crashing everywhere, and everyone was screaming. People got pushed into bottles,” a guest told the newspaper. “Then Diddy got up, took the mic and said ‘It’s all cool! Ya’ll keep having fun! It’s no big deal, it’s over.’ ”
