Appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" aired Tuesday, March 10, P. Diddy opened up about the reason that prompted him to let Chris Brown and Rihanna stayed at his Miami house nearly three weeks after the 19-year-old singer allegedly battered the 21-year-old songstress. "I don't cast a judgment on anybody. It was a dark time for them, and I was there as more of a support," the music mogul defended his move for opening his house for the lovers which then led to their reconciliation.
"I'm not immersed in [their situation]. I'm not going to pass judgment on it. I'm going to be there as a friend," Diddy explained to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "It's my house, and I'm allowed to give my house to whoever I want to give my house to. So if friends ask me for a favor, then I'm going to be there for a favor as long as I know the energy of the favor is positive."
As for the assault that Brown did to Rihanna, Diddy said, "I don't think it's right for anybody to hit anybody. We know sometimes relationships get ugly ... we don't know exactly what's going on [with them]." He then added, "We need to pray for them, and we need to do things to support them."
Chris Brown and Rihanna, who became estranged after he allegedly assaulted her during an argument on February 8, reunited at P. Diddy's house in Miami Beach's Star Island late last month after keeping themselves away from the spotlight. Rihanna was the first to be seen around the house, soaking up the sun in a bikini. Days later, Brown was photographed jet skiing with some of his friends.
