JLo makes me cry: P Diddy

Wellington: Rap star P Diddy has revealed that watching Jennifer Lopez compassionately deal with music hopefuls on ‘American Idol’ has made him cry twice.

Diddy and Lopez dated for two-and-a-half years, with their relationship ending in 2000.

But he isn’t worried about seeing his former love at all, and has been blown away by her involvement in the show so far.

“First of all she’s just looking so good! You’ve got to give it to her for having twins and to be doing it how she’s doing it. I’m so proud of her," a website quoted Diddy as saying.

"The way [Jennifer] handled coming after Simon, and even myself from Making the Band, and the way we were hard coaches - she’s been like, a compassionate person. She has made me cry like, twice, and she’s looked good doing it. And she has made sense so, you know, I’m proud of her.

"She’s a nice person so, you know, when you’re super nice, your emotions get the best of you. It’s good though - it’s good to see that change in the competitive shows. I think she’s very refreshing."

Diddy can’t wait to be involved with the programme himself and has already thought about the advice he will pass on to the hopefuls.
