@ Sandy Cowell
It should be on Bonnie Langfords page very soon, sorry I should have sent it at the same time as this message but I didn't! It will be in Rob's in tray right now!
Sandy Cowell said on 10/May/17
@ Nik - That's right! I'm about to have a couple of puffs while the kettle boils! Then I'm off to Bonnie Langford's page! See ya!
Nik said on 9/May/17
@ Sandy Cowell
Maybe you just have the odd cig then just to relax!
See you on Bonnie Langfords page!
Sandy Cowell said on 8/May/17
@ Nik - Well, it could be worse! I'm lucky that I don't like it very much, and the thought of having a smoker's cough is just too offputting for words! 😯 😬😠😤😣😵😫
Nik said on 7/May/17
@Sandy Cowell - Hi!
You lead an otherwise healthy lifestyle and you don't smoke more than the odd few so no worries!
Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/17
@ Nik - Hi Nik! - I have had a couple of puffs today, and it is indeed such a stupid way of spending one's money! The 10 lousy fags I bought last Thursday were even more expensive than usual, as I bought them in one of those crappy little convenience stores! Silly me! 👎👱🚬😝
Nik said on 5/May/17
Yes I know that peer pressure encouraged you to have a dabble with cigarettes! At one time though, many years ago, it was not even known to be damaging to your health (or anywhere near as health damaging) as it is now. Thankfully my Mum now only smokes about 2 or 3 a day, in halves! She also only has a couple of small glasses of alcohol a week. I agree that it is a stupid thing to do and a terrible waste of money!
Also I will post a comment for you on the Payton Rae page very soon!
Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/17
@ Nik - Yes, of course it was peer pressure! Both my parents started, hardly surprisingly, in the war! I've met people who have smoked since they were 9! I still have the odd cigarette, but I've never smoked enough to have a smoker's cough! I don't like it enough, and there is nothing more annoying than a smoker's cough! I wouldn't like to get on people's nerves for making that revolting, ear-popping noise! I had 2 small cigs yesterday - a couple of puffs on each! It's a stupid thing to do and a dreadful waste of money! ☝🚬😝👎 💷🔥💶🔥💰🔥
Nik said on 4/May/17
@Sandy Cowell -Hi!
So many people used to smoke at one time so I think it was the peer pressure that influenced you into having a dabble with cigarettes. It was even cool to smoke at one time and it was this culture that got my Mum into smoking! It was only until really recently that attitudes started to change.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/May/17
@ Nik - My brother Christopher has never smoked a single cigarette in his life either! I don't think he would have grown past 17, as he did, had he done so!
I was so bombarded into it that I didn't even know how to do it! It was at a college course, which I abandoned and went on back to school! Some were even smoking there! It was an all-girls class, though the rest of the school was mixed. It was the school I went to from the age of 11!
Nik said on 3/May/17
Oh I can see now where the origins of that name came from! It's interesting that he is down as having 2 different heights, I wonder which one of these is right or whether he is actually between 5'10" and 6'0"? He's certainly not diddy and I think that he looks taller than most guys who are a flat 5'10"!
A few kids used to smoke in the yard at school but I have never smoked one cigarette in my entire life, thankfully I was never pressured into it or I probably would have smoked at some stage. I wouldn't be pressured into it now though!
I think that this "diddy" man is certainly pushing 5'11"!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/May/17
@ Nik - He looks taller than 5ft10! I just checked him out when I saw your comment on the 'Latest Comments' page! He looks anything but 'diddy'! Ha ha ha to that! I have heard of 'Puff Daddy', and reading just now that he has a police record (stating 2 different heights!), the penny has only just dropped as to the origins of the name! THAT can't be very good for the height, can it? Indeed any kind of smoking is so damaging. I'm glad I never smoked a single cigarette until I was 16 1/2, when people were lighting up in the economics lessons because the teacher was lenient! You were regarded as a bit of a jerk if you didn't, but then one boy made a stand and said we were all stupid and I thought he risked being ridiculed for saying that but no, he was respected, just like he should have been! He was of above average height, and maybe his sensible attitude helped him turn him into a guy of 6ft or 6ft1, who knows?
I will give the not-so-diddy Puff Daddy 5ft11!
Nik said on 2/May/17
He is by no means diddy!
thatgyy said on 30/Apr/17
Why does everyone on here try and make everyone seem shorter and say everyone is wearing lifts, some people don't even think about it and there are people that are being called self conscious and lift wearers
Moe said on 27/Apr/17
Met him by chance in public. I can confidently say that he is 179 cm. He needs an upgrade
Adamz said on 9/Apr/17
Diddy was listed as 180cm before. What justifies a full 2cm downgrade?? I think 180cm was more accurrate to be honest. 179cm at least!??
Capetownjazzy said on 18/Mar/17
Near Kevin Love he looks a very good 5'10
Alex said on 4/Jan/17
How tall would u guys guess his son christian ?
said on 23/Nov/16
Here is why using photos to compare height isn't always accurate or fully reliable,
These are are a couple of pictures of Diddy next to his MT waxwork
and Click Here
- in these photos he looks the same height as his waxwork as he should look, in fact he might slightly edge it out if anything.
- but here in this photo, he's looking shorter than it, even thought its at the same place and time as the previous photographs!
Different camera angles, and perhaps even posture can change the perception of how tall someone could look compared to another person, even if both are the same height like shown above! In other words I'm saying guesstimating someone's height based on 1 photograph is not always enough, as its not always an accurate representation of real life.

Classic 5'10 on-the-nose guy right here.

In his famous lifts he's 5'10" no more.....

rob how tall do you think the English grime rapper skepta is? p diddy has done a song with him
Editor Rob: ain't sure on that guy
dmeyer said on 19/Oct/15
Could look near 179 in person , in pics he looks nearer 5'11
kid smalls said on 1/Sep/15
half inch shorter than Tyrese who is a weak 5'9".Puffy is 5'8.5 barefoot. With lifts 5'10"
Blink_284 said on 25/Jun/15
5'11 maximum, the picture with Wallberg tells you. Wahlberg is very believable at 5'8 and both are in normal (not extra thick) sneakers. The difference between them could be no more than 3 inches. In most of the other pictures he was wearing (or might have been wearing) formal shoes and those would have made him taller than the sneakers.
TJE said on 22/Jul/14
Around the same height as Tyrese Gibson.
Dmeyer said on 8/Jun/14
Nothing under legit 5'10 i met him mr loves to shave 1in from people ,

Lol ... Police records state he is 5' 10" ... That says it all ! He is a punk !!
Swede said on 18/Jan/14
Mark Wahlberg also looks A LOT shorter than P. Diddy in pictures so Mark should be downgraded, he could be slightly under 5'7.
said on 7/Nov/13
Diddy is very clearly taller than Usher. A few shots from just this year:
Even accounting for the footwear difference in the first photo, it's clear that Diddy is taller. Still, I'm not convinced Usher is a full 5'8", so there is that.
tony said on 3/Nov/13
i saw him in a event and he is the same height as Usher who was there too

To people who say biggie was 6'3 b.s his autopsy has him at 6'1. Theres a video with him and jay-z performing.Jay-z at 6'2 is taller than biggie for sure back in 08 i saw diddy at hancock premiere.He's 5'10 tops he had boots on so probably 5'9 without them.
Big D said on 13/Oct/13
Next to my confirmed 5'9 friend in a Facebook photo, P Diddy's easily 2-2.5" taller than him. Anyone think he sometimes wears lifts?
cole said on 28/Jul/13
5'9 max is rubbish. 5'10 minimum.
Juicey said on 28/Jul/13
teej said on 3/Jul/13
Hes a legit 5 10 just an average guy.. And looked 5 inches shorter than Biggie, and he was 6'3 and looked a legit 6 3 even though he could look shorter because he slouched a lot, he had that james gadolfini posture.
cole said on 18/Jun/13
He looked WAY more than 1" taller than Paul Rudd in the Go Kindergarten video, but then again Paul ain't 5'9.
coke said on 20/Mar/13
My friends just got a pic at a movie premier with him. They are 5'7 tops... Diddy is barely taller than them. Yeah. 5'9 sounds right.

Russel ash in that photo he looks 179cm. How tall is ludacris? 5 foot 6? Busta rhymes is huge. He looks 6 foot 5 at least.
Busta does look a similar height to Snoop Dogg in that pic. looks a lot taller than 6'1!
Mr. R said on 7/Jun/12
Saw him at a party in Hwood. Walked right past me. 5-9 tops.
Lebensdorf said on 4/Jun/12
No way he's this tall. I would say 5'9" max. He's good friends with Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher, who's around 6'2", towers over him.

noticably shoooorter than 6foot rick ross, If Ross is 6foot, then diddy is 5.9-5.9'5, he always wears dress shoes/boots ..thats why he might look taller(diddy)
5'11 barefoot... said on 26/Jun/11
no way is he 5'10.5.....just subtract about 2-3 inches and that is his true height.....will smith is 5 to 6 inches taller than puff...period....puff is not tall at all...he is average height just like his music....
said on 7/Jun/11
Ok, time to put this case to rest. Diddy looks at least 3 inches shorter than 6 footer Tyson Beckford here: Click Here
You can tell by his body proportions (meaning length of limbs, not musculature) compared to Tysons proportions that he's built like a slightly smaller than average guy. Im guessing his exact height is somewhere between 5'8.25 to about grazing 5'9(5'8.75) and is a frequent lift wearer.
P.S. R Kelly is not 6'1" more like 5'11.5 to a weak 6 foot. There is a youtube clip of him and Jay Z singing "t-shirt" and he is noticeably shorter than Jay(who is 6'1.5) by a couple of inches.
Kenneth said on 27/Apr/11
no more than 179cm tbh

Tyson Beckford isnt even 6-0
Dane said on 29/Mar/11
looks really 5'8' ish, 50 cents 5'10.5-5'11ish. He was dwarfed by 6 footer Tyson Beckford. So im assuming 5'7"- 5'8" natural height.
Tony said on 10/Feb/11
Viper says on 11/Jul/10
50 cent is 5'10.5 Max
I'd say more like 5'11 def not 6 feet i know a bodygaurd in Ny sais at most he thought he was 5'10 when he worked for him
Viper said on 2/Feb/11
Eminem is not a solid 5-7. He looked a hair shorter than 5-7 Wahlberg on MTV.
Hes just under 5-7

David said on 22/Jan/11
On 'The Graham Norton Show' he was wearing noticeable heels, and he looked about 2-3" taller than Graham Norton who is around 5'8" so perhaps 5'9.5" - 5'10" is a decent bet. Certainly no more though.
SH said on 5/Jan/11
Met him as my friend is a concert promoter, I would say 5'10'' is good. 5'7'' is laughable he is certainly taller than that

htf can diddy be 5'10" if they say pac is 5'9" but 2pac is taller than puffy.(obviously tupacs height on his license was 5'10". puff is 5 9 iight boys and girls
D-1 said on 5/Nov/10
I seen Diddy up close and i'm 5'10 with no shoes... 5'10.5-5'11 is pretty accurate because he's slightly taller than me
dmeyer said on 9/Oct/07
when i met him he had very low heeled shoes and still looked easy 5'10 5'10.5 seems right
glenn said on 9/Oct/07
he is 5-10 to 5-11.in court his height was stated as 5-11.
Andre said on 6/Oct/07
I say he is somewhere between 5'9.5 and 5'10
The bottomline. said on 17/Aug/07
This man clearly has 2.5 inches on 5'8 usher. Come on people.
Anonymous said on 3/Aug/07
I find it hard to believe hes 5'10 or 5'11. He look soo short, I say 5'9 if that kim portor chick is 5'10 cause she is always taller than him in every photo.
dmeyer said on 1/Aug/07
diddy is 5'10er he looked a bit shorter than banks in 3.5 in heels if he was less he would have look funny
alessandra said on 31/Jul/07
time for a downgrade! judging by all the footage i've seen of him and by the two pics up top, he can't be over 5'9.
Dermot said on 12/Jul/07
he dont look much taller than glen and one pic hes wearing a hat i think he 5.8.5
Roger said on 10/Jul/07
he isnt much taller than glenn , and i know diddy wears large shoes. 5 ft 8.5 or 9

P. Smith said on 26/Apr/07
The music video "Victory" bills Sean at 6 foot and 180lbs. Personally, he always looked 5-11 to me. So I buy the 5-10.5...
dmeyer said on 24/Apr/07
p diddy didnt look mush shorter than me so 5'10 aleast or marginaly over
glenn said on 24/Apr/07
6ft in footwear.
Brad said on 23/Apr/07
Probably gave Officer Gleason a bill and said "put me at 6'"
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
i thought you said the police would know nas height? diddy isnt 6ft.a hair under 5-11.
Brad said on 20/Apr/07
6' in his NYPD arrest jacket from 1995.
Anonymous said on 1/Mar/07
Also in the second picture you are both leaning, and it looks like he is just trying more to fit in the picture. If you both weren't leaning then it would still be an inch in height difference. Not two and half inches!
said on 7/Feb/07
Here's P. Diddy with 5'9.5" Patrick Dempsey:
1. Click Here
This also means that Daniel Craig needs to be brought down to a more realistic height:
2. Click Here
He can look taller, of course, but who can't? Perhaps, both Patrick Dempsey and Daniel Craig are wearing lifts in both of those photos and Diddy's not? I doubt it.
[Editor Rob: the links need to be modified, I fixed them this time, try in future for getty to make them of the following format:
Mike said on 7/Feb/07
Ran into Diddy outside of a club in South Beach. They had ropes up, but I was right against the ropes, he walked up right in front of me passing me as he walked into the club. Only had sneakers on and I was surprised just how short he seemed. I'm 5'9" and he was definitely no taller than me - maybe an inch shorter (5'8"), small frame as well
Glenn said on 1/Feb/07
I never noticed.really?
Scarlet said on 31/Jan/07
omg, Glenn how come you never mentioned that you and Daniel Craig are the same height next to Diddy?
dmeyer said on 1/Jan/07
thanks glenn i think he is close to 179
Glenn said on 19/Nov/06
Correct Dmeyer.5-10.5 might be accurate.
dmeyer said on 18/Nov/06
to me looks 179 or a strong 178 since he looked only 2 inches shorter than tyra who weared 3.5 inches in he was in low heeled snikers so 5'10 pushing 5'11
dmeyer said on 16/Nov/06
when i met him he looked 5'10 to 5'11
Anonymous said on 16/Nov/06
P. Diddy looks like 5'9.5 at the most in the photo with Glenn. He looks only an inch taller, if that, and doesn't look like he is slouching too much.
Anonymous said on 13/Sep/06
i met p diddy in a club in NYC where im from im a even 6ft flatfooted and i was wearing regular shoes and hes at most 5"9 which is average so, whatever, but 5"11 i dont think so , if a person is 6ft and the other is 5"11 u really cant tell the difference unless you look close, but i had at minimum 2in closer to 3, im a say 5"9.5ft topps
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
he looked 179 when i met him pushing 5 11 but we werent on the exact same floor he was wearing low heeled mocasin i think just over 5 10 ne less
hyphyshark said on 4/Sep/06
Anyone know how tall are the girls of Danity Kane since Diddy is taller than all of them?
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
I find it really strange that 5-7 listings for P-diddy are all around the internet. I wonder why? Makes me a little suspicious.
Anonymous said on 17/Aug/06
Glenn's head is facing straight and you can see that Diddy's head is a facing down a lil. He might be 5"11 or very close to it...
Anonymous said on 10/Aug/06
He is no way 5 foot 10. When I met him he was only a few inches taller than me and I'm 5'6". I'd guess either 5'7"-5'9"

Kanye looks like he's wearing moccasins too...

he looked close to 5'11 when i met him
Glenn said on 13/Jun/06
In Robs defence Diddy can look 5-10 to 5-11 whenever I see him,and on trial 7 years ago,they stated 5-11 on a couple occassions.
J. said on 13/Jun/06
Puffy never looks below 5'10".
MHouillon said on 11/Jun/06
Looking at this picture (Glenn wears no lifts for sure) gives Sean Combs 176cm MAXIMUM! Not 179cm, ROB! It's time to change Diddy's Height. I'm serious.
Smoke said on 19/Apr/06
I always thought he was 6ft that is what it says at the start of the Victory video
Ujane, Moscow said on 11/Apr/06
agree, Brett! Perhaps of the angle it is 2.5in difference so we can`t see it!
ForensicNYC said on 3/Apr/06
Yeah 5'10" is just about right...this guy is "class" enough NOT to wear lifts.
Ain't gonna catch him wearing those silly high heels. Just Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, and maybe a bit of UGG!
Brett said on 13/Mar/06
looks like he has 1.5 inches max over Glenn there?
Chris said on 3/Mar/06
man P diddy don't look 5 10 stNDING RIGHT NEXT TO A GUY THATS 5 8 THEY KINDA LOOK THE SAME HIRGHT TO ME WELL ACTUALLY HE LOOKS AN INCH TALLER BUT THAT'S ALL

CoolJ said on 23/Jan/06
He's about 1/4 - 1/2 inch taller than Mase.. I'm thinking 5'10 even
Mr. Awesome said on 23/Jan/06
rob, he's not further back than glenn, his body is just turned slightly, which would not make him seem shorter (or at least not that much)...in order for their hands to be together in that manner, then he couldn't possibly be farther back...diddy's right shoulder is just as close to the camera as glenn's...he's not even a step further from the camera then glenn...diddy looks 5'9.5'' at best
[Editor Rob: I'm talking inches here from camera, yeah 'further back' makes it sound he's away in the distance ;-)]
MHouillon said on 22/Jan/06
Yes, Diddy is a 178cm maximum. Not a shade over 5'10.
MD said on 21/Jan/06
Is there some reason why he literally only looks half-an-inch taller than Glenn, there?
[Editor Rob: further back than glenn]
CoolJ said on 21/Jan/06
He's about 5'10.. not 5'10.5 like Rob says
Mr. Awesome said on 21/Jan/06
he's sure not lookin over 5'10'' compared to glenn

Horatio said on 17/Dec/05
On a Puff Daddy music video, at the start they list his height at 6'. I think he's a good bit shorter than that though. Probably in the 5'8-5'10" range.
JJ said on 16/Dec/05
Editor Rob, I was watching VH1 the other night and they were making fun of the fact that Diddy and Bruce Willis are friends. They showed the two together and Willis looks a good 2.5-3 inches taller in every scene (maybe 4 diff scenes). Out of curiosity, why is he listed so much taller than other sites?
yachtie said on 11/Dec/05
Listen up,I work as the captain of a big superyacht,the type which all the celebs love to charter.I have never had P.Diddy on my boat,however i did stand right beside him during the Formula 1 race in Monaco and believe me when i tell you that he was shockingly short.I am 5'9 and at the time i was wearing very flat deck shoes,P.Diddy was wearing a suit and heeled dress shoes,the terrain was even and flat, and as god is my witness i had 3 inches on the little guy, i coulden't fathom it and looked a few times to be sure that it wasen't all smoke and mirrors...not a chance.I'd say bare-footed he's 5'5 max!!
phast said on 30/Nov/05
P. Diddy definitely wears lifts. He always looks like a 6'er on TV and awards shows, but my friend's Dad actually ran the NY marathon behind Diddy. He said he wanted to talk to Diddy and encourage him (lol), but Diddy had his "runners" running next to him to keep him from being bothered. Anyhow, my friend's Dad said he was way shorter than he expected. He's 5'10 and ran about 2 feet behind Diddy for a while in an effort to get on camera (lol), and told me he was about 2 inches taller than Diddy. I guess you can't run in lifts. It's sad that someone that successful and powerful is that insecure.
Glenn said on 30/Nov/05
keep in mind, listen to those who have met him.I have many times and have photos with him.he looks 5-10,5-11.Im 5-8.does he wear lifts? I doubt it,but that would make him 5-8 or less.I believe he truly is the height stated.your right about Mase.he is 5-10.
Joe said on 28/Nov/05
P Diddy is no where near 5'10. I used to think he was over 6' but after discovering this site I started to pay closer attention. He did this Vote or Die Ad for MTV during the last election and he has a picture w/ the cast of the Real World Philadelphia. I can't find that picture online anymore but will post it if it turns up. Anyhow, he looked 2' shorter than Landon in that picture. My buddy went to school w/ Landon and said he's around 5'10, so that would make Diddy around 5'8.
Also, there was an interview on Access Hollywood where he looked 3 inches shorter than Billy Bush, who has stated that he's 5'11 (and I doubt he would understate his height). They had a couple of leveled shots during the interview but other than that the camera kept shooting from an angle that made Diddy look taller.
~Nate~ said on 20/Nov/05
When I met Puffy at Mariahs album release party he was about 3 inches taller then 5'8.5' Mariah and she was in about 4 inch heels. When I shook his hand we were exactly the same height, I was wearing more of a sandal type shoe and he was wearing dress shoes with a big sole but he was bout the same height as me and I'm 6'1. Im not sure if he was wearing lifts because I didnt ask him to take off his shoes! LOL but He was my height.
Viper652 said on 10/Nov/05
Puff daddy is interesting. Why is he listed everywhere at 5-7?? Does he wear lifts?? Its odd.

To give this guy anything over 5'9 is obsurd!

But Ciara is shorter than Puff the diddy. So Puff gotta be 5'11 or more. I know he's not my hight-4'0.

He is not 5ft 10.5. My friend's a huge fan of his and ran next to him for a little bit during the ny marathon. JJ said he was about arms distance from diddy and noticed that he towered over him. JJ's 6' so there's no way he can be even 5'10. I always thought diddy was somewhere in the 6'1 range but JJ said he's probably 5'8 or so.

P.Diddy is 5'9ish", 5'10" with heels on. J.Lo compared his height to Ben Afflecs(spelling?) when she was dating Ben, she said Ben is 6'2", and Diddy is 5'9".

I do recall that episode of Making the Band that the previous poster mentions. Chopper, one of the members of the 'Da Band' was a lanky 6'4", by the way. In the episode, Puff asks Chopper to stand up. They stand next to each other and compare arm length. I couldn't help to notice that Puffy looked quite short next to Chopper. But the thing that confuses me with him is that Puff can easily look 6'0"+ in many ocassions. With an ego like his, I think a pair of Sean John elevator shoes in that vast closet of his!!!

Holla at the name given!!!

Do any of you guys know Bill O'Rielly conservative ditto-head who has a show on Fox News? 6'5" guy, likes to use his height to intimidate people. In his 2001 book he spoke of his interview with Puff Daddy and his disdain for the man couldn't be more obvious (he doesn't like rap!). In the book he called Puff a shrimp and placed him at 5'7". Obviously Puff's taller than this and O'Rielly was trying to put him down as much as he could (or that at 6'5" it's very hard to estimate someones height). Maybe this is where those 5'7" sightings came from.

Well, Mz. Carmelo, the NYPD sure thinks that Diddy is 5'10": http://www.mugshots.net/puff_daddy/

Why is P-diddy listed at 5-7 on most websites? Could that be his true height without any sort of lifts??
[Editor Rob: I leave him 179cm as I think he really does look it. The 5ft 7 listing was from many years ago and spread to quite a few sites.]

I don't think he's this tall. He's about 5'9.5", nearly the same as Mase

I dont think Diddy's 5'10 he's probally 5'8.5 or 5'9 no taller have u ever seen pics of him and the 6'3 Notorious B.I.G. Diddy was a midget but ^'3's very tall and all but I'm 5'9 and my uncle's 6'3 and he doesnt tower me as much as B.I.G. did Diddy in pics in the 90s so really Diddy might be the 5'7 or 5'7.5 he gets listed at

Jay, Diddy and Foxx were pictured in the forward section of that issue, where they have snapshots of celebrities at various events and such. And hey, don't be hatin' on these boys. Okay they are not my cup of tea, but somebody somewhere may find them to be hot! They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder! (Sometimes the beholder seems to be blind!)
Jay said on 25/May/05
Mr. R, why was P. Diddy and Jamie Foxx in 50 most beautiful people magazine? Not to sound cocky but they seem like they fit the ugly duckling list. And besides that 5'9 on the dot is p diddy's height in my opinion.
Mr. R said on 24/May/05
Hey Rob - did you ever find the pic in People Magazine with P. Diddy and Jamie Foxx? It reveals a lot about both of them. I think it was in the 50 most beautiful people issue.
[Editor Rob: sorry I couldn't see the issue]
dmeyer said on 8/May/05
i worked on the diet pepsi comercial he did looked between 179-182 cm and he was wearing very low heel shoes 1.5 cm
Mr. R said on 5/May/05
One day Puffy, er Diddy was asked his height. He responded along the lines of he was six feet tall exactly, because that's what a real man is. SO THERE!
J. said on 4/May/05
Does Puffy wear lifts? He looks a solid 5'10" for the most part but I swear there's so many photos where he looks 6'0"+. I'm telling you, it confuses me! Then was a 2001 cover story for the Source magazine where the writer describes Puffy's "six foot frame". Rob, are we shortchanging or is he being fooling us???
[Editor Rob: hmm, not looked at the old Didster for a while, but I'll say this - in Monster's ball he does look 179, maybe pushing 180cm, but 6ft? yes with a help from the lift fairy]
