Diddy Does Right By Black Rob
According to reports, Puffy tried to connect with Rob just days before his tragic death. The 51-year-old had Diddy ready to help out but ultimately died before they could fully reunite.
Sean “Diddy” Combs will be contributing to the funeral costs for his friend Black Rob — after the pair reconnected just before his death, Page Six has learned. We can confirm that Diddy — who called Rob “one of a kind” — reached out to Rob at hospital before his passing, as a source said, “Diddy offered help for Rob, but in the end, sadly, it was too late.” “But he wants to make sure that Rob is laid to rest with dignity and according to his wishes. He is helping to make the funeral arrangements,” the source added. (Page Six)
New York rapper Cormega has since come forward to support Puff Daddy for looking out for Rob and acknowledged him handling the funeral arrangements.
“The truth is a ray of light when we are clouded with judgment so let me shine some light on the speculation. Diddy did a Bad Boy Reunion Tour and Rob was included! Diddy looked out for him recently. Diddy is handling the funeral arrangements. If you can’t match what he’s done you should not blame a man for someone’s death. Rob was my guy I proudly worked with him when he was no longer in the spotlight. And I think it would be better served if people reserve their words for condolences to the family and for positive moments instead of the divisive speculation that stops us from unifying and growing as a culture. Blame (b•lame) Don’t be lame. RIP ROB salute to all who stand for something condolences to his family condolences to his Bad Boy peers condolences to the fans who respect his music. Salute”
