LATEST: Officials at America's White House have hit back at reports they had anything to do with First Lady Laura Bush's reported snub of SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS this week (ends27AUG04).

The NEW YORK POST recently reported that Diddy's absence at Monday's (23AUG04) inauguration of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, was in response to rumours that representatives of American President GEORGE W Bush's wife didn't want her photographed with the BAD BOY RECORDS boss.

But Laura Bush's spokesman, GORDON JOHNDROE says in a statement, "The White House does not determine who does or does not participate in a program, like the dedication of the Underground Railroad Freedom Center."
