Music mogul and rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs set tongues wagging and social media ablaze when he apparently tweetedsome big news.

“MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!.”

There is only one problem…

“It’s not true,” PBS spokeswoman Carrie Johnson said in an email to Reuters.

However, the Combs’ account continues to thank fans for their well wishes and is posting pictures of what they claim to be Diddy on the set of the show.

So, it would appear that either someone hacked the @iamdiddy Twitter account and is still posting, or Diddy is pulling a fast one, or PBS is trying to keep the news under wraps.
