Rapper says the two friends are done chasing girls

P Diddy reckons he and best mate Russell Brand are now just a couple of dull middle-aged men.

The rapper, 41, and newlywed Russell, 35 – who met when they starred together in 2010 hit film Get Him To The Greek – have both given up their hard-partying ways.

When they hook up, they just sit in front of the TV.

‘It’s not as exciting as people think,’ admits Diddy.

‘When we’re together I’m not being Puff Daddy and Russell’s not being being Russell Brand.

‘There’s no hard partying or chasing girls, or doing crazy things.

‘Seriously, we are real boring.’

Diddy, who also counts Artic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders and David Beckham among his close friends, says the odd coupling is the most natural thing in the world to him.

‘I don’t know why people thing it’s strange that I’m friends with Russell,’ he tells the Sun.

‘We’re being who we were born, doing regular things.

‘We just sit on the sofa and watch the news.’
