Diddy Defends Britney

September 20 2007, 10:49 pm

Diddy spoke to Access Hollywoods Billy Bush, telling our co-host that the Toxic star was not drinking prior to her opening slot on the show.

The times that I was around her, in her defense, she didnt drink any alcohol. I didnt see her drink. You know I was hospitable, I offered everybody a drink and you know she had water he said.

Instead of resting up for her comeback, Britney reportedly partied until 3 and 4 AM on both Friday and Saturday night.

At 3am when you see her, as a performer do you say to yourself you should be going to sleep now, you are opening the VMAs tomorrow, Billy asked Diddy.

Everybody has their own way, he replied. Some people deal with, you know, nerves, they cant go to sleep and you dont know what the problem is. To just say Oh, her career is over she [is] done, to discount all her work beforehand because she is a human being we all go through hard times.
