Diddy On 'Downton Abbey': Rapper Tweets About Appearing On Series, But Masterpiece Shoots Down Report

Diddy on "Downton Abbey"? It almost happened ... sort of.

On Wednesday afternoon, Sean "Diddy" Combs sent out a series of tweets that sent fans of both the rapper and hit series into a frenzy.

TV star Jackée Harry even congratulated Diddy on his "Downton Abbey" news.

Diddy even went so far as to tweet a photo of himself allegedly on "Downton Abbey":

But there's only one problem: When reached for comments, a representative for Masterpiece on PBS told The Huffington Post, "It's simply not true."

"Downton Abbey" Season 4 premieres on Sun., January 5, 2014 on PBS.

Do you think Diddy's account was hacked? Or is he joking around? Sound off in the comments!
