Rap mogul Sean Combs spent his New Year's Eve (31Dec09) shooting down rumours he was preparing to wed before 2009 was over after reports alleged he was marrying ex-girlfriend KIM PORTER.
The hip-hop star has reportedly reconciled with his longtime love and the mother of three of his children after recently ending his romance with singer Cassie.
Online blogs claimed Diddy was set to ring in 2010 as a married man after planning a last-minute wedding to Porter on Thursday (31Dec09) - but he was forced to take to his Twitter.com page to dismiss the rumours.
He wrote, "I'm sorry to announce I'm not getting married tonight!!! Stop blogs stop! By the time I do decide to get married no one is gonna (sic) believe me!"
However, Diddy's plea failed to put a stop to the reports, which quickly spread across the internet.
In another post on Friday morning (01Jan10), the star wrote: "I'm not married people. And las (last) night when I said just married I was being sarcastic. But some people wanna believe anything. But I'm not (married)!!"
Diddy's denial comes just two weeks after his representative insisted there was no truth to another rumour he and Porter were heading to the altar.
The spokesperson told the New York Post: "This rumour happens every year - it isn't true."
Porter, mum to Diddy's twin daughters D'Lila and Jessie and 12-year-old son Christian, walked out on the star when she was expecting the girls in 2007 after learning he had cheated on her with a photographer, who fell pregnant.
