Sean Combs has opened up about his jail visit to see incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne - insisting the star "is doing great" behind bars.
Combs was approved by officials to meet with the Lollipop hitmaker - who was caged in March (10) after pleading guilty to gun possession charges - for an hour last month (Apr10).
The hip-hop star visited Wayne at Rikers Island prison in New York, and admits he urged the rapper to use his time in prison to make himself a "better person".
Combs tells MTV News, "Wayne is a trooper. Wayne is doing great. It was a personal visit, so I don't want to get into the details of that. We're just counting down the days of him getting out. He's somebody that has been there for me over the years numerous times.
"I live in New York. It wouldn't have been right if I didn't go see him and check on his health and well-being. But the status of where that's at, that's his personal business. I think we gonna miss a certain energy that Wayne has.
"The beauty about it is, he'll be back, and hopefully he'll come back a better person. Whenever we get in trouble, we're in the public spotlight. So hopefully there's a lot of kids out there who could learn from any mistakes that we may have put ourselves in, even if we're not guilty of the crime sometimes."
