Comment on the Height of P Diddy

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.

Shorter than nas.
P Twitty said on 30/Mar/14
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.
MD 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.

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
5'9 1/2
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.
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 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
someone said on 16/Jun/07
i met diddy in NY and hes short. hes no where near 5'10
chaz said on 12/Jun/07
no way is diddy 5ft 10.5 he was in a interview with uk football player rio Ferdinand who is 6"3 and diddy looked 5-6 inches smaller no way i would ave 2 say he is 5ft 8/9
jae said on 2/Jun/07
no way he is 5 10 i saw him coming out of a school when he was doing vote or die. i was next to him and he seemed 5 9 at most, i'm 5 8.
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!
MD 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"
Bear said on 20/Jul/06
Kanye looks like he's wearing moccasins too...
T said on 23/Jun/06
Definitely 5' 9"
Glenn said on 16/Jun/06
Thanks for backing me dmeyer.
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/06
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
Weight:180 pounds.
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
D. Ray Morton said on 16/Feb/06
165 lbs.? At 5'10"?

I always thought the brutha was bigger than that. (Unless he really *is* only 5'9" or so...)
Tam-Tam said on 15/Feb/06
he is just under 5'10'',the police decribed him this hight.
zenski said on 12/Feb/06
Rob please look at this mugshot of P Diddy the plice decribe him as 5'10''.You got to change his hight
trueheight said on 30/Jan/06
strange because PD looked about 6 foot in Monsters Ball walking next to BB Thornton, he was barefoot as well
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) 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
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Jan/06
P Daddy and Glenn added.
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.
Joel said on 9/Nov/05
To give this guy anything over 5'9 is obsurd!
PopQ said on 9/Nov/05
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.
Christian said on 27/Oct/05
I'm 5'10 with no quarter
Anonymous said on 17/Oct/05
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.
James said on 14/Oct/05
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".
J. said on 6/Oct/05
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!!!
ya-boy said on 6/Oct/05
if anybody listens, puff said he was 5'7" on air on making the band (chopper, baps) He was talking about boxing and how short his arms where.
Holla at the name given!!!
A-Bomb said on 5/Oct/05
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.
J. said on 4/Oct/05
Well, Mz. Carmelo, the NYPD sure thinks that Diddy is 5'10":
Viper652 said on 4/Oct/05
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.]
CoolJ said on 14/Jun/05
I don't think he's this tall. He's about 5'9.5", nearly the same as Mase
Ball-A-Hallic said on 2/Jun/05
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
Mr. R said on 26/May/05
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]
Monty said on 24/Mar/05
He doesn't seem that much taller then Usher who is 5'8.
