Yung Miami, 27, caused a stir when she posted a photo of herself holding hands with Diddy, 51, on June 2. It was a glamorous photo, too: both rappers were dressed to the nines for the birthday party of Pierre “Pee” Thomas, the CEO of Quality Control, the record label that Yung Miami is signed to. The PDA came as a pleasant surprise to fans, since Yung Miami (whose real name is Caresha Romeka Brownlee) and Diddy haven’t been romantically linked in the past.
