Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs took a tumble on Sunday at the BET Awards in Los Angeles during his first public appearance since being arrested at his son’s college.

The 45-year-old rapper slipped and fell into what appeared to be a hole in the stage while performing during the awards ceremony at the downtown Microsoft Theater.

To make matters worse, later when he presented an award, he flubbed his lines and had to ask the teleprompter to re-wind.

He took to the stage joined by several artists on his Bad Boy Records company to celebrate the label’s 20th anniversary.

He was performing the hit track It’s All About The Benjamins (Remix) and jaunted across the stage to make room for rapper Jadakiss.

Diddy was at the front of the stage and was strutting back when he unexpectedly tripped and fell flat on his back.
