Diddy denies dating rumour

Hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs has denied reports he is dating his R&B protégé, Cassie.

Diddy, 38, was rumoured to have been dating the singer, 21, after he signed her to his Bad Boy record label last year , with the New York Post reporting on Monday that the pair were back together.

A source told PageSix.com: "She recently broke up with her boyfriend, and they're (Diddy and Cassie) in Miami together now. They're holed up together in Miami, very low-key. He's really in love with her."

But Combs insists the rumours are false, telling blogger Perez Hilton: "I am still single and am not in love with anyone."

Combs' publicist confirms the star is in Miami, and that he is working with all of his artists, not just Cassie. - Wenn
