Diddy Sued For Allegedly Stealing Cologne Bottle Design

Sean “Diddy” Combs was sued on Wednesday (Jan. 28) by a glass artist who claims the hip-hop mogul’s design for his “Unforgivable” cologne bottle is a rip off.

The Boston Globe reports that Tom Patti filed a suit against the rapper in Springfield, Mass claiming that the sleek, plastic crate that Diddy used to house his cologne is a knock off of the glass sculptures he made in the 80s.

“A couple of years ago, my phone started ringing,” the 65-year-old artist told the Globe. “Everywhere I went, people started congratulating me on the success of my fragrance container. I didn’t know what they were talking about. Eventually, I realized that Combs had replicated my work.”

Patti hopes that by taking legal action he will stop the sale of any more bottles of the cologne and “wants all profits to be traceable to the alleged copyright infringement.” – Elan Mancini
