Los Angeles - Hip-hop icon and fashion mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs suffered "multiple injuries" including to his neck and collarbone in a car crash in Beverly Hills, a spokesperson for the star said on Thursday.

The 42-year-old was reported to have been left in pain after the accident on Wednesday involving his chauffeur-driven Cadillac Escalade outside the Beverly Hills hotel.

Pictures published by celebrity news website TMZ showed him lying on a grass verge after the crash, while police said he was not taken to hospital. His publicists did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.

'Receiving treatment'

But on Thursday a spokesperson issued a statement saying: "Sean Combs sustained multiple injuries in yesterday's car accident including to his neck, ribs and collarbone.

"He is currently receiving treatment for these injuries from his physicians and would like to thank all of his fans for the outpouring of support that he has received since the accident," she added.

Combs himself tweeted "Whoa .. That was a close one!" on his Twitter account earlier on Thursday.

Born in Harlem, New York in 1969, Combs rose to prominence during the 1990s as founder and chief executive of Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment and Sean Combs Enterprises.

As well as his own successful rap career, Combs has produced hits for Aretha Franklin, Sting, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J Blige and Janet Jackson. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
