The mystery behind Diddy's infamous #DiddyCrop and #DiddyShop social media photos has finally been solved. While visiting "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Puff explained it all. 

Feat. and more

In the beginning of the conversation, Diddy and the talk show host spoke about his late arrival to the show, the 2018 Grammys, fashion, Puff potentially becoming an owner of an NFL team and more. Then, DeGeneres asked about the infamous photos that the mogul posted on his social media from time to time that would noticeably leave some famous people out once edited.

"I take a lot of pictures with a lot of different celebrities because we're all family and stuff," Puff explained. "Sometimes my photography editor—he doesn't let me know when he's taking people out of the pictures.

"I just found out about this," he continued. "There were people that were taken away that didn't deserve to be taken away. I had nothing to do with it. My friends haven't been talking to me for like two weeks." 

The most recent picture that illustrates this editing is one that originally had Kendrick Lamar, JAY-Z, Fabolous, French Montana and Nas. However, when the pic was posted on Puff's socials, it only had K. Dot, Nas and JAY. This is dubbed the #DiddyShop.

Diddy -- or shall we say his photo editor -- has done things like this a number of different times. Last year, another picture removed Kylie and Kendall Jenner and it quickly went viral. This was a #DiddyCrop.
