Actress Lauren London took to Instagram to dispel rumors surrounding her and rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs. The rumors started on February 21, when Diddy posted a few black-and-white photos to his Instagram Story showing himself and London at the Roc Nation brunch before the Grammy Awards. In the first photo, Diddy is seen talking to London away from the other guests at the event while London laughs. Accompanying the photo was a caption from Diddy – “#lostfiles … @laurenlondon❤️.” The second photo showed Diddy looking towards London while she walked away. “More lost files …Me and My Sister @laurenlondon at the @rocnation brunch,” wrote Diddy under the second picture. Many online were curious if Diddy was pursuing a romantic relationship with London.

After Diddy’s Instagram Stories made waves online, London made several posts of her to seemingly address the rumors, first posting to her Instagram story. In the first of her Stories, the actress posted a picture of her late partner, hip-hop artist Nipsey Hussle. Along with the picture, the actress posted a caption, which read, “Forever and even after call me Lady Hussle.” Then, the actress posted another Story, this time without a picture. In white text on a black background, London wrote, “Stop fucking playing with me and my name. Now Let me get back to healing.” Nipsey Hussle was killed in April 2019 after he was shot outside of his clothing store. The rapper, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, had a child with London in 2016.

Along with the two Instagram stories, London also posted on her Instagram page. In a post which has since been deleted, the actress wrote, “I’m all love and peace but never forget….I’m a woman in grief and I don’t play about Nip, my family, my character and code. Bout to drink a green juice to start the day though.”
