Diddy and Tyrin Turner both had their spotlights in the 90s. Diddy was the hop hop mogul helping define the genre in the decade alongside the likes of Suge Knight. Meanwhile, Tyrin Turner found success with roles in films like Menace II Society and Belly. Despite this, it's safe to say that Diddy has had a more successful and consistent career.

However, according to a new interview with Turner, it turns out that the two of them might have had a not-so-positive interaction. Diddy was famous for his 90s beefs, primarily the one stemming from his fall out with Suge Knight. According to the actor, he confronted the rapper and businessman at none other than the house of Jamie Foxx.

Turner Opens Up About Diddy Confrontation

Speaking on the Art Of Dialogue show, Turner spoke about defending Jamie Foxx from Diddy's wrath. “It was a total misunderstanding,” he explained. “I think Puff almost fell and tripped — you know, we was at Jamie [Foxx]’s house. I think he kind of tripped or something. And brother, you know, he kind of laughed. And I guess it wasn’t funny to Puff. You know what I mean?” Turner said. “So Puff kinda put, you know, like — ‘Hey, come here.’ What’s funny, or whatever. And I see it from my peripheral. And I’m like, that’s my brother. Puffy don’t know my brother. This is weird. That ain’t — this don’t look cool. So I’m like — I pushed my brother out the way, and I’m like, hold on." Turner continued.

So Turner, a long-time friend of Foxx's, confronted Diddy about it. “And I asked Puff, ‘you know him?’ And Puff is like, ‘Nah, playboy,’ and I’m like, ‘Aye, n-gga, that’s my brother. I’ll touch everything in here for my brother. Period.’ So me and Puff, we end up having a conversation, as men, we shook hands and everything was great.” According to Turner, the confrontation did not go any further than an exchanging of words, with the pair able to squash their temporary beef. While the story is nothing more than a tense interaction many years ago, it's an interesting story behind two 90s heavyweights.
