Usher recalls living with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs at age 14 in resurfaced cl*p

Sean Combs’ LA home was raided Monday by Homeland Security officials in connection with a federal human trafficking investigation.

Sean “Diddy” Combs helped mentor Usher and brought the then-teenage R&B singer to the East Coast to live with him in New York City for a year.

The musician recalled his early days in the business while chatting on the Howard Stern Show in a resurfaced clip from 2016.

“I moved to New York City and I lived with Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs for a year,” Usher said.

Stern mentioned, “That was L.A. Reid’s idea, right? We’re sending you to something called Puffy Flavor Camp.”

“In the ‘90s; do you understand what that’s like?” Usher said, before Stern quipped, “Puffy’s place was like just filled with chicks and orgying like non-stop, right?

“Nah, not really. It was curious. I got a chance to see some things,” Usher said.

The Atlanta-based musician noted, “I went there to see the lifestyle, and I saw it. And it was… But I don’t know if I could indulge and understand what I was even looking at. It was pretty wild. It was crazy.”

Co-host Robin Quivers chimed in, “So nobody tried to, you know, some woman didn’t come along…”

Usher laughed before adding, “I didn’t say that. What I did say is that there were very curious things taking place, and I didn’t necessarily understand it.”

He noted that the parties were filled with industry heavy-hitters, including, “Biggie Smalls was there, Lil Kim, Craig Mack… Faith Evans, Jodeci, Mary J. Blige.”

Robin asked if his parents were “OK with everything,” to which Usher said, “They didn’t know nothing about this s—. I was having a good time.”“Does he having you doing any chores?” Stern wondered. “Are you doing dishes at all to keep you humble somewhat or are you just like, can you stay up till 4 in the morning with them and party?”

“I mean, I could. I actually stayed up longer than them,” Usher said.

“You’re a dad now, would you ever send your kid to Puffy camp,” Howard asked, to which Usher quickly responded, “Hell no.”
