Sean “Diddy” Combs yanked out an IV right before an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” during which he sipped tequila and said he faced “false lawsuits” as a result of his vast wealth.

“I get a lot of false lawsuits,” as a result of being perceived as wealthy, he said. “I don’t want to be on those lists. I want to be able to give money to people that need it.”
