Rapper P. Diddy got an earful from fans this week after sharing a racy photo of his former girlfriend and baby’s mother Sarah Chapman.
In an Instagram post, the music mogul wished Chapman a happy birthday, adding, “Chance and I are so grateful to have you in our lives. Love.” It was the photo, not the caption, that got fans all riled up, however.
The picture showed a scantily clad Chapman chilling in a cabana by the beach, sporting a green and white bikini bottoms and a flowing top. Folks slammed Diddy — who has six kids by three different women — for posting the “inappropriate” picture and wondered what his current girlfriend, Cassie, must think of it.
This is not a decent picture, a grown woman having her legs spread all over … I pity your girlfriend’s thought,” one fan wrote.
“You could have used another pic. Looks inappropriate and a bit disrespectful for your girlfriend #justsaying,” wrote another.
One fan joked that, “Cassie calling him right now like: ‘So ummm, was this the only photo she had? 😂😂😂😂'”
Diddy, 48, is no stranger to celebrating the mothers of his children and has talked at length about how to successfully co-parent. He and Chapman share an 11-year-old daughter, Chance, and have known each other for over 25 years. Through the ups and downs, the Bad Boy rapper said the two have remained good friends.
“I want to talk to y’all about the importance of long-term relationships. When you’re co-parenting, y’all gots to be friends,” Diddy said in an Instagram video last year.
He continued, “To all the baby mamas and baby daddies, there just gotta be a time when the bullsh-t stops and y’all can just laugh and y’all can chill. I’m blessed to have three of the greatest baby mothers on the planet. This is one of them right here.”
