P. Diddy has vowed to care for his secret daughter.
The rapper, who fathered a child with Sarah Chapman while he was dating ex-lover Kim Porter last year, wants to be part of 15-month-old Chance’s life now he is sure she is his.
Diddy said: “I will take care of her for the rest of her life.”
The hip-hop star had denied Chance was his daughter for more than a year, but DNA tests recently proved him to be the baby’s father.
Kim, who has three children with Diddy, admitted their romance imploded when she discovered he had a child with another woman, living in Atlanta.
When asked if the rumours of a secret baby were the reason Kim ended their relationship, she said: “That definitely was part of it.”
Diddy insists he was faithful to Kim, claiming he had a relationship with Sarah Chapman while he and Kim were “on a break”.
Diddy was reportedly desperate to keep the baby a secret from Kim – who was pregnant with their twin girls at the time – and allegedly paid the then unnamed mother USD1 million to stay quiet.
Kim moved out of the music mogul’s apartment in July following a 10-year on/off relationship.
Kim and Diddy are parents to nine-month-old twin daughters, D’Lila Star and Jesse James, and nine-year-old son, Justin.
Diddy has another son, 13-year-old Christian, from a previous relationship.
