Roc Nation’s J. Cole and Diddy have stepped forward to clear the air on rumors and reports claiming they had a physical altercation with one another at last weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York.
While brief with his words, Cole simply downplayed the rumored scuffle.
“people will believe anything,” Cole tweeted August 26. (J. Cole’s Twitter)
More direct in his approach, Diddy specifically addressed the reports.
“I usually don’t address rumors but I got too much respect for my bro @JColeNC. We are friends. We just yell in public sometimes LOL #Fam,” Diddy tweeted August 26.

The gossip started to scatter across the Internet early Monday.
The rumor underworld is buzzing with word of an alleged scuffle at the Jay Z and Diddy MTV Video Music Awards after-party at NYC’s Dream Hotel last night (Aug. 25). The D’ussé and Ciroc sponsored event was star-studded, with Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake and more witnessing the alleged melee between Roc Nation soldier J. Cole and the CEO of Bad Boy records, Sean “Diddy” Combs. The two allegedly exchanged words that turned into a physical altercation where J. Cole and Diddy roughed each other up. Seems like cooler heads prevailed and the party went on, yet without J. Cole in attendance as he was escorted out of the building. (VIBE)
