R'n'B diva Mary J Blige has settled her differences with rapper SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS - after a bitter feud split them apart.

The pair, who fell out five years ago, reunited for Blige's new LP LOVE AND LIFE - but she admits Combs is the same "difficult" person he's always been.

Blige says, "It was a lot of fun working with Puffy - it's always difficult because he is Puffy.

"But it's a lot of fun when you grow up and you understand that, you know, he is just Puffy. It's like neither one of us changed, we just grew up, you know. It was great."

The first single LOVE AT FIRST SITE, featuring hip-hop star Method Man, will be released in August (03).
