P. Diddy misses Cameron Diaz, ‘the sexiest girl in the world’: sweet or rude?

Remember how Cameron Diaz dated P. Diddy several years ago? I think the gossip world wanted to forget that story. This is a photo of them at the Oscars in 2008, which was reportedly their first meeting. They were definitely flirting with each other in this picture, and who knows what happened then. They were spotted making out all over NYC in late 2011 although Cameron downplayed the relationship in interviews. Cam and Diddy were finished by mid-2012, and Diddy has regretted it ever since. At least, that’s the impression I get from this story. Us Weekly has the scoop on an overheard conversation where Diddy was bemoaning his lost love.

She’s the one that got away! Diddy has dated plenty of gorgeous women over the years, but one in particular still has him reeling — Cameron Diaz. An insider tells Us Weekly that the rap mogul couldn’t stop gushing over his former fling during a recent night out.

“He was at a dinner and the subject turned to Cameron dating Benji Madden,” the source tells Us. “He said, ‘If I could turn back time, things would be different!’” (Diaz began dating the Good Charlotte rocker in May.)

The insider adds: “He was bummed, saying, ‘She’s the sexiest girl in the world.’”

Diddy, 45, who previously dated Jennifer Lopez for three years, first hooked up with Diaz, 42, back in 2008. In 2012, the Annie actress was spotted straddling Diddy at a CAA gala in West Hollywood. “Her hair was all crazy, her makeup was smeared and they made out in front of everyone,” an onlooker told Us at the time. “She was acting like a teenager!”

Part of me thinks that Diddy is out of line in saying this stuff. It’s at least disrespectful to Benji Madden, who has made Cameron very happy this year. I don’t know though. Diddy may not have known that people were listening to him gush about Cameron, but he needs to keep a lid on it in public.

Here’s some photos Diddy interacting with Cam and Alex Rodriguez at a Super Bowl fantasy party in February 2011. The timeline is confusing because Cam was fooling around with A-Rod as early as 2010. There was some definite on-and-off/overlap with these two guys. I don’t know what’s going on here, but A-Rod didn’t look happy.

    nothing about what he supposedly said was disrespectful or rude.

  2. Louise177 says:

    I doubt this story is true but if it was nothing is out of line or disrespectful. Nothing bad was said. Famous or not a lot of people wish they could do things over again.

  3. I’m confused–did he actually say that, or is the tabloid CLAIMING he said it? It doesn’t seem like, to me, that he actually said any of that. I was expecting this to come out of an interview.

    And eh, on one hand, I can see how it is kind of awkward–especially since she’s in a new relationship. On the other hand–it’s not like they run in the same circles, y’know? And it’d be pretty easy for her people to avoid him, if that’s what she wanted. Plus I think, unless it ended awfully, that it’d be a sort of ego boost/nice thing to hear. That even when you break up, your ex still remembers you fondly. Better than trash talking you.

    • Kiddo says:

      Maybe he is looking for a boost in attention, taking cues from JLo, who is now blabbing about Affleck being the one who got away, and whatnot?

      • Anne says:

        good point, kiddo. To each their own, but I for one don’t find Cameron Diaz particularly sexy. My impression is she makes too big a deal of her “i love sex and i’m not interested in tying a man down” approach to relationships. Somehow I just don’t believe her. I’m sure these two had fun together, though.

  4. Ag says:

    If he did say it, it’s a nice thing to say about her. It’s not disrespectful to her in any way, shape, of form. But that’s not the argument, is it? It’s somehow disrespectful to her bf? I REALLY hate the line of thought “it’s disrespectful to her man.” Her man has nothing to do with Diddy’s sentiments towards her. She’s not property, FFS.

  5. captain says:

    No, he doesn’t want her that bad. Maybe he was just showing off to his mates that he shagged this famous H-Wood star they were talking about. Or thought about her and decided to send her a message this way? Or has he got a new “I have a girl” song to furnish with a nice heartbreaking story? The girl can get away once, but twice? Please. They just hooked up for some fun and party time in 2008, and then again in four years. It wasn’t a relationship both times. They just partied and had sex. I get the feeling that Puff Daddy is always up for something like that, if a suitable girl comes along. She was after a break up, so this no-strings, no-feelings, just laughs and party thing was exactly what she wanted.

  6. cynthia says:

    Its odd to me to classify this as rude in anyway- why do we need to be concerned about Benjis feelings with this statement? Cameron is her own woman with her own agency, I dont see how this is disrespectful to “her man” Its not like he said he is plotting to “steal her away”

    • Anne says:

      maybe it’s because people hear it as an invitation. why say it at all unless you want a response from it and what response are you looking for? it can be heard as an expression of interest. I think people just sometimes feel that lust/attraction/chemistry is a slippery slope and that kind of expression can easily threaten someone’s sense of security and trust in their relationship – IF they’re insecure.

      I don’t find it rude, either, but that’s my two cents.

  7. epiphany says:

    Assuming this is true, how is it in any way disrespectful to Benji Madden? What Diddy is saying, in effect, is ‘she’s a great woman – don’t let her get away like I did.’ It’s actually flattering to Cam and Benji – although I’m a bit skeptical it was even said.

  8. QQ says:

    Diddy stays PRESSED about his FAMOUS exes all the while having actual and factual gfs he should be keeping his trap shut for (Cassie, Aubrey o’day Kim or whatever his long suffering bunch of kids baby mommas name is) but also if stories are true he is legendarily awful to these chicks Like the lower the profile the more physical it gets

  9. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Refering to an adult woman as a girl is somewhat disrespectful. I don’t see a problem with the rest though.

  10. cmc220 says:

    The only person this seems disrespectful toward is Cassie

    • FingerBinger says:

      I thought the same thing ,but I think he and Cassie have an understanding. He can do or say whatever he wants and still come home to her.

    • nikzilla says:

      I was thinking the same thing! No mention of her at all in this post lol

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        Wrong skin color. They don’t pay much attention to anyone else than the usuals on here. They were even calling doubt on the Rihanna/Jay Z rumors so they sure won’t know about Cassie.

  11. Anon33 says:

    Have to agree with the majority here. Now if Diddy had said “I’m going to act a fool and try to get her back by any means necessary,” then maybe that would be something to worry about…

  12. JenniferJustice says:

    I didn’t think it rude he said what he said. What I did think was, “What the hell does JLo say to his claiming Diaz is the sexiest girl in the world?” LOL

  13. may23 says:

    Hey, does anyone remember how good she looked all of the sudden recently when wearing that short white dress? It was like she had some sort of lift or a cosmetic procedure that made her look 15 years younger all of the sudden? I guess it was a one time thing but does anyone know what she did then? It couldn’t have been a lift though, because she looks back her normal self now.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      The last and only time I found Diaz attractive was when she did The Mask. After that movie it was like she aged 15 years the next time I saw her or she got some awful surgery.

  14. lisa says:

    every pot has a lid

    i dont see anything in either of them

  15. nikzilla says:

    Has everyone forgotten about Cassie? He’s been with her for YEARS and dates all these other women simultaneously.
