Over the weekend, O'Shea Jackson Jr. took to Twitter to share his thoughts on a questionable lyric P. Diddy rapped on his classic 2002 single "I Need A Girl (Part 1)."

Released in Feb. 2002 as the first single from Diddy's Bad Boy compilation album We Invented the Remix, "I Need A Girl (Part 1)" sees Diddy deliver some questionable lines about his relationship with his girl.

"At first we were friends then became lovers/You was more than my girl, we was like brothers/All night we would play fight under covers," Diddy raps on the third verse.

On Saturday, Jackson hopped on Twitter to share his thoughts on the verse, specifically the "You was more than my girl, we was like brothers" line.

"Remember in 'I Need A Girl' when puff was like, 'You was more than my girl we was like brothers.' That Shit always bothered me," Jackson wrote.

Jackson's remarks arrive as the Bad Boy Records founder faces multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Back in November, Cassie filed a lawsuit against Diddy, accusing her former partner of raping and abusing her throughout their decade-long romantic relationship.

Weeks later, after he reportedly settled the Cassie case for an undisclosed amount, Diddy was hit with a second lawsuit from a woman accusing him of sexually assaulting her while she was a student at Syracuse University in 1991. A third woman later accused Diddy of sexually assaulting her at a New York event around 1990 or 1991.
