April Fool's Day has come and gone, so when Diddy announced that he'd joined the cast of British drama Downton Abbey, the Twittersphere didn't know what to believe. "MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i'll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!" Diddy tweeted Wednesday evening.
Media outlets jumped on the story, and even actress Jackee Harry tweeted about the news. Turns out though that the whole thing isn't true. PBS has denied the whole thing to ABC News Radio.
We'll see how long Diddy keeps the Downton Abbey castle as his background image on Twitter.
In other Diddy news, his car recently caught the attention of Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies. That's according to TMZ, which reports that the media mogul had just been dropped off at the swanky Soho House in West Hollywood. Moments later his super expensive Maybach was surrounded by squad cars and cops with their guns drawn. Someone had called 911 and reported that someone in the vehicle had a gun, according to TMZ.
No firearms were found, however.
