Diddy Joining the Cast of Downton Abbey?

Diddy-300x297Is Diddy joining the cast of the BBC period drama “Downton Abbey”?

On Wednesday, the mogul tweeted, “I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey”.

He later followed that message by writing on Twitter, “MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!”

A number of news outlets and blogs fell for it, but it’s “not true,” a spokesperson for the show tells Gossip Cop, reiterating, “He is not joining the cast of ‘Downton Abbey.’”

It’s unclear why Diddy — who also changed his Twitter background to the logo of “Downton Abbey” — claimed he’ll be on the show.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
