Diddy Loses Lawsuit Over Nickname

diddy1.jpgSean “Diddy” Combs will no longer be able to use the “Diddy” moniker in the UK after he agreed to settle a lawsuit filed against him by music producer Richard “Diddy” Dearlove. Dearlove, who is well known on the UK dance scene, filed the lawsuit alleging unfair competition against his US namesake last year. The case was set to go to the High Court on October 23. While all of the details of the settlement have not been revealed, the BBC places the figure at £110,000, or just over 200,000 U.S. dollars. A press release distributed by the Dearlove’s attorney states that Combs has “given several undertakings to Dearlove,” although no details were given. Under the settlement, Combs will also be required to rebrand his commercial activities in the UK and reimburse Dearlove for the cost of the litigation.

    That’s funny. That’s what that nigga get for trying to be Prince and keep changing his name. I still call that nigga Puff Daddy anyway.

  • Rashad

    Damn! Puff Daddy, P.Diddy, what’s next?

  • stoneyisland

    serves this cocksucka right. This is what he deserves for riding Bigs dick all the time, next time why not take a moniker that fits like P. Dickrider, or P. Ussy, or anything that resembles a bitch ass dolphin tooth looking bastard. cant stop, wont stop, riding biggies dick. Puff Daddy is a bitch a male version of paris hilton.
