Howard Alum Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Hospitalized

A Howard University alum is recovering in the hospital after undergoing knee surgery.

Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs took to Instagram to update fans on his health, writing, “Just had my final knee surgery. They said I’d never run again. I SAID THE DEVIL IS A LIAR.!! 3 surgeries in one year! 3rd times a the charm!!!”

“#Rebirth don’t take the simple things in life for granted. Thank you to all the surgeons and docs and PTs. I THANK GOD FOR YALL! And #teamlove #ThankYou #GODISTHEGREATEST,” he continued.

In 2015, the “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” rapper had knee surgery one month after falling through a hole onstage at the BET Awards in Los Angeles.

“God puts us all thru things for reason,” Combs wrote. “It’s up to us to learn through the things that he puts us through! Sometimes you have to go through the pain to get to the joy. This journey has brought me closer to God. Closer to my family. And most importantly closer to myself. As this has been God’s will. Thank you to My staff for being patient and riding with me the last two years and holding me down. Tomorrow’s a new day. Step-by-step! Thank you to all my fans and friends ! Thank you for your prayers and support! I’m doing great. And I appreciate your concern. And a special shout out to everybody who’s laid up in a hospital right now my prayers are with you you’re not alone god bless and keep fighting! SAVE ME A DANCE! All LOVE!!!! IM DOING GREAT BY THE WAY! Thank you.”

Combs attended Howard University before dropping out to pursue music. The gamble paid off.

Get well soon!
