Usher saw 'very curious things taking place' when he lived with Diddy aged just 13

The hitmaker admitted that he 'didn't understand' some of the things he saw

Usher was just 13 years old when Diddy invited him to see what a musician's 'lifestyle' was like.

The 'Burn' hitmaker is a global superstar and recently headlined the Super Bowl halftime show, but once upon a time, he was just a young and budding up-and-coming artist like many who start out in the music industry.

In a bid to help him make it as an artist, Usher joined the 'Puffy Flava Camp' after L.A. Reid, former CEO of Epic Records, suggested he do so.

During his time in the so-called camp, Usher mixed with others stars who were much older than him (Diddy is nine years his senior) and in a resurfaced interview, he admitted that he saw some 'curious' things.

Speaking to Howard Stern back in 2016, Usher recalled: "I lived with Sean Puffy Combs for a year."

Stern then asked if it the house was 'filled with chicks and orgys', but Usher insisted that wasn't the case.

"Nah, not really," he said. "I mean, it was curious. I got the chance to see some things."

"I went there to see the lifestyle," the 'My Boo' singer continued. "And I saw it. I don't know if I could indulge and understand really what I was I looking it."

"It was pretty wild," Usher added.

When asked if his parents were okay with what he was experiencing, the 45-year-old admitted that they 'didn't know nothing about this s**t'.

"You're a dad now, would you ever send your kid to Puffy Flava Camp?" Stern went on to ask.

"Hell no," Usher, a father-of-four, replied.

UNILAD has contacted Usher and P Diddy's reps for comment.

The eight-year-old video has been doing the rounds of late in the wake of Diddy's Los Angeles homes being raided in connection to an ongoing sex trafficking investigation.

Homeland Security Investigations said in a statement issued on March 25: "Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners.

"We will provide further information as it becomes available."

As it stands, it remains unclear if Diddy is the target of the federal agents' investigation.

The rapper's sons, Justin and Christian, were detained outside of one of his homes at the time of the raids, but were later released without charge.

The raids follow Diddy's ex-girlfriend Casandra Ventura sued him late last year over allegations of rape and abuse - but Diddy denied the claims.

The pair dated for over a decade before calling time on their romance in 2018.
