We’re not too particular about seeing Diddy in bed, even if it is with girlfriend Cassie. But just in case you care about how the two sleep at night, the couple posted late night pics of theirselves in bed on Oct 10. Cassie posted this weird pic of Diddy laying on top of her (looking rather uncomfortable.) While Diddy posted pics of her rubbing his feet. (Eww!) I guess somebody’s gotta do it.

Swizz Beatz recently posted this pic of him and DMX (wearing his infamous bucket hat),re-igniting rumors that the two may not only be attempting to work together again, but getting the historic Ruff Ryders movement started again. Remember those good ‘ole days in 1998 and ’99 when we were bumping such hits as the Stop, Drop, and Ruff Ryder’s Anthem? It would certainly be great if Swizzy could help get X back on his feet? Or do you think the Darkman’s image has been too tarnished for him to take over the charts again?
