Cameron Diaz claims Diddy date was business, but she’s been with him for a while

We’ve heard rumors for a few weeks that Cameron Diaz and Diddy are hooking up again. They were together back in 2008, but took pains to keep it quiet – at least Cameron did. Diddy gave an interview to Playboy in December, 2009 in which he said he had secretly dated a “famous actress” but wasn’t going to say who it was. You could tell that he was just dying to spill the beans but was hoping to get another chance with the actress he wouldn’t name. Here’s what he said at the time:

COMBS: Yeah, there was a young lady who’s an actress. She’s famous. I liked her, so I was willing to do whatever I had to do. I told her, “I will sneak up the side of the building to see you.” I was persistent.

PLAYBOY: Did you get to hang out?

COMBS: We started spending time together, but we were prisoners of our celebrity. She took me to dinner after we got to know each other and hit me with a line that was straight out of the movies. She said, “You know this will never work, right?” [laughs] I knew she was right.

PLAYBOY: Who was it?

COMBS: The only person I’m gonna tell is God. If he says I can’t get into heaven I may whisper it in his ear. She was so cool the way she let me down softly, and she offered me a ride back to my hotel.

PLAYBOY: Sienna Miller’s name will get linked to that story. You know that, right?

COMBS: I can clear that up right now. It wasn’t her. This was going to shake up the world. It would have been a Puff and J. Lo situation, part two.

So that makes me think that Diaz dumped Diddy nicely back in 2008 when they were linked over the summer and that he was still hung up on her a year later. She probably gave him another chance this year when she was lonely post A-Rod, but she’s still not willing to be associated with him. US Weekly claims Cameron and Diddy are hooking up, that they’ve been spotted all over the place and that “she’ll booty call him,” but the official story, the one that People is reporting, has them meeting up for some sort of “project.” Here’s US Weekly’s story:

The actress, 39, has reunited with Sean “Diddy” Combs, her off-and-on hookup since 2008, when Combs pursued her during Oscars week, a source tells Us Weekly.

“Since then, when she’s single, she’ll booty call him,” adds another insider.

And now, they’ve gone public: Nuzzling in a booth at NYC’s Catch on Oct. 24, the two were “inseparable — they had their hands all over each other,” an eyewitness tells Us.

Two weeks later, at a Nov. 11 lunch at Scarpetta in Beverly Hills, they were “making out, acting romantic,” says a source. (Reps for both stars say Diaz and Combs, 42, are “just friends” and meeting to discuss a possible comedy film project.)

One hitch: Combs is still dating his model girlfriend of three years, Cassie, 25. Says a friend, “Diddy’s single whenever there’s a better offer on the table!”

People has Cameron’s rep telling them “Cameron and Sean are longtime friends and fans of one another’s work. They have been seen together recently because they are developing a film project.” Mmhmmm. I know Diddy is a flashy egotistical douche of the highest order, but I would love it if this fling with Cameron got serious and if they went public. I think when Diddy hooks up with a woman who challenges him he really steps up his game and tries to be a good boyfriend, as much as he can. These two seem really fun together, to me, and I want them to be a real item.

    Man, she has the worst taste in men. A douche parade. Matt Dillon seemed okay but he’s in actuality a douchey womanizer. Jared Leto ruined himself by fooling around with Paris Hilton. Justin Timberlake – class A douche. Then A-Rod. No Comment. And now, Diddy. Seriously?

  2. Delta Juliet says:

    I think he’s a total douche, but this story kind of made me hate him a little less. Must be the thought that he could have feelings for someone other than himself.

  3. BlackMamba says:

    Eh boy, Cassie is not happy about this

  4. truthSF says:

    I’m positively sure they are not dating.

    A few months ago, he was at a ATL hotel my friend was employed in and he had several guests (all men who had to be approved by him through his bodyguard) visit him throughout the night. Needless to say, the next day when they were sent to his room to clean (he had already checked out), there were so many used condoms laying everywhere.

  5. Nanz says:

    ‘developing a film project’ (read: sex tape).

  6. Turtle Dove says:

    I like the idea of them together; they’d be an attractive couple, but I get a cheater vibe from Diddy.

    Hold out for someone really good, Cameron.

  7. TXCinderella says:

    She has sank to an all-time low. He is such a douche.

  8. sassy says:

    doesn’t PDiddy have a relationship already? I thought he had one with the lady who had his babies.
    He’ll NEVER be faithful. If he’s indeed single, he may be fun to go on a date with, but fall in love with??? No way! He’ll hurt you once that new vagina smell wears off…

  9. Ell says:

    Every time Cam moves on she downgrades. Couple this with Lainey’s not so blind BVs and it’s fairly clear she has extremely low self-esteem.

  10. Orange Cone says:

    I thought he’s with that kept girl, Cassie?

    I think Cammy and Combs should go for it; it wouldnt be serious so who cares…it would be fun to watch.

  11. becky says:

    she really does have the worst taste in men

  12. DarkEmpress says:

    I find Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore so interesting.I think they just both want to date and have fun. It doesnt look like either of them are interested in the conventional MAN – MARRIAGE – BABY route. Female Clooneys.

  13. Dusty says:

    @turtle dove, excuse me, but when does being an “attractive couple” mean it is a good fit?Isn’t there more important criteria? After all, looks fade…always.

  14. The Truth Fairy says:

    I love her jacket.

  15. MellaYella says:

    She looks old, he is ugly perfect!

  16. Lisa says:

    I mean…she needs to get her engine tuned…so he’s a good mechanic…it’s not like she’s walking down ANY red carpet with him…NO WAY!!!

    So…I can’t hate on her maintenance program…

  17. mln76 says:

    Puffy is a douche but ARod never even publicly acknowledged her so it is a step up.

  18. Shelly says:

    Her taste in men is pathetic.

  19. Callumna says:

    If she’s JLO the sequel he cheated on the first one and they had to break up over public gun play at a club.

    He’s got 6 kids by two or three women.

    He’s just not a good catch but she doesn’t seem to want a good relationship so maybe they’re better for each other than they know. But I’d be careful disease wise with either.

  20. RocketMerry says:

    Am I the only one who finds the way they both handles this sweet and kind of romantic? That surprised me.

  21. BlackMamba says:

    Diddy is the worst, the only reason he would leave Cassie for Cameron is status. Diddy is the biggest attention whore that ever lived and likes to attach himself to people`s fame. He would love all the tabloid attention that would come with dating A list movie star Cameron. Plus he would get to go to all the right hollywood parties, mingle with the right people(he fancies himself as an actor too you know) that are unavailable to him even though he is a super rich hip hop superstar.

  22. Amanda G says:

    What an odd couple. I disagree with him that it would be J.Lo part 2. No one cares enough about either of them anymore.

  23. Dani says:

    No way Cameron is dating Diddy. Her taste in men isn’t bad. I rather like Matt Dillon, and Jared Leto seems like a cool dude who isn’t out to be in the public eye.

  24. Blue says:

    Ughhh he’s so gross. Attention whore and sooo annoying and in love with himself. He always goes back to one of his baby mamas. Plus he has something going with Cassie. Also so many rumors about him being gay (uses all his
    women and kids to play it off?)
    He’s just too much gross, she may have self esteem issues but she can do better. Also I love her outfit in this pics walking around, makes me wish I was skinny enough to pull it off :(

  25. krisna says:

    He’s butt frickin ugly

  26. Firecracker says:

    I think he’s really hot…for a douche.

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    Disty – relax. It’s a gossip site, hon.

  28. dorothy says:

    She just can’t be without a man can she? She reminds me so much of Kate Hudson.

  29. normades says:

    What BlackMamba #21 said, but still wanna see them as a couple too!

    Why do they all want to be “actors” these days?

  30. Kelly says:

    They’re made for another. Both shallow and self-absorbed

  31. Maritza says:

    Like she said, it’s never going to work! They are just have fun in the meantime.

  32. Ally says:

    He does seem like a dumb, pretentious douche, but watch his appearance with Vince Vaughn (of whom I thought the same) on the Graham Norton show. In an almost hour-long less-than-PC sit-down, they come off quite sweet and witty.

    Google any celebrity & the Graham Norton show. It’s really the best in the nighttime talk show format: funny and you get some sense of how these people behave — a lot less canned than Letterman, Leno, etc.

  33. JamTam says:

    Mouf breevah

  34. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Diddy looks so weird, I just can’t imagine him having sex with anyone, he’s disgusting really…Gosh I just picture him sweating and ugh!

  35. Andie B says:

    He’s probably like Jay-Z and photographs uglier than he appears in real life. I hear Diddy is a bit of a dawg, but I actually like these two as a couple.

  36. Lady_Luck says:

    Omg what is happening to her face!? she looks like a waxwork out of madam tussauds – except melting!

    Sort it out cammie.

    As for the train of douche-bags. I wonder if you sat cammie down on a therapist’s couch it would be revealed she is attracted to ‘emotional-unavailable’ douches? Perhaps she is a commitment-phobic herself.

  37. Toot says:


    I believe it. That’s been the rumor about Puffy for years. I also believe that he may be doing Cameron too.

    Puffy is a big old slut

  38. kikay says:

    Didn’t Naomi Campbell dump him because he’s got a small ding dong?

  39. BabyCakes says:

    @ 1 there’s a rumor going around in Hollywood that they are all part of the herpes club.

  40. Kimbob says:

    GROSS! This news disgusts me! And now I hear there’s a possibility Diddy/Puffy/whatEVER the hell his name is this particular minute could be a switch hitter? Excuse me while I go to the bathroom to throw up.

    Diddy is such an overblown alleged celeb. Dude grosses me out!

    If this is true about him being Cam’s “booty call” in between her boyfriends….ummmm….she DESERVES him then! This is just plain NASTY news!

  41. Meanchick says:

    Okay, um, eeeeew. Diddy is an opportunist, plain and simple, he HAS a girlfriend, but as we all know, that doesn’t stop him from chasing women that will make relevent. According to a book I read by a video skank who smashed him, he has NOTHING to be proud about in the wee-wee department.
