Sean "Diddy" Combs @diddy , also known by his stage names Puff Daddy and P Diddy, has been revealed as the buyer of a Kerry James Marshall painting that fetched $21.1m at auction.
The sum is believed to be the most ever paid for a work by a living African-American artist.
The painting, Past Times, depicts black Americans picnicking, waterskiing and listening to music in a Chicago park.
The painting had been expected to fetch around $8m. In the event, its price was four times higher than the previous record for a work by 62-year-old Marshall.
