Puff Daddy Says He Was “Used As A Pawn” In The Fuse Deal
Puff Daddy doesn't like losing. More importantly, he doesn't like being played. When him and his former girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, were battling each other in hopes of purchasing Fuse for their respective channels, he expressed that he felt like he was played by the the former owner of Fuse, in order to increase the bidding for the music channel, according to HipHopWired.
Yesterday at The Cable Show in Los Angeles, Puff sat on a panel and spoke about how he was being "used as a pawn" in the deal against his former lover. Over a month ago, it was reported that Puff was willing to pay $200 million for Fuse. Then, J-Lo's NuvoTV prevailed by outbidding Puffy and ousting him out of the picture with her offer of $226 million.
Puff says he doesn't have any hard feelings towards J-Lo by saying, ""that's the way business works." Despite Puff taking an L on the deal, he still has high hopes for Revolt, saying at the panel that he wants the network to be “the No. 1 brand in music worldwide.”
