It seems as if Diddy’s aspirations to become the owner of his own NFL football team stems from a childhood dream to play professional football.

While in the UK, Diddy revealed his own football fantasy to Tim Westwood.

“I never had any aspirations to become a recording artist, producer, music mogul or anything like that. I loved American football. So throughout grade school and high school I was pursuing dreams to become a professional American football player,” he continues. “My last year of high school is when I broke my leg, right before my most important season when the scouts come to see you.”

Diddy went on to explain his journey from college student to music industry icon. Check out the interview above.
