Diddy ready to let about 20 lawyers rain down on the LA times.

The LA Times ran a story on their website this morning allegedly linking the 1994 attack of Tupac Shakur at a New York recording studio with Sean “Diddy” Combs.  The sad thing is that the story claims that the story is based on FBI records, interviews with people at the scene of the 1994 shooting, and statements to the FBI by an informant, but none of the sources are on the record!  What kind of shoddy journalism is that!  Don’t we expect more from the LA Times, or is it just another blog!?

Diddy put out a statement denouncing the story, saying “The story is a lie…It is beyond ridiculous and completely false. Neither (the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.) nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened. … I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story.”  Frankly, I am shocked too.  I am not trying to pick sides here, but if you are going to accuse someone of attempted murder, you better have enough information and sources to back it up.  If I was Diddy, I would sue the hell out of the newspaper for libel!

I am sure that this will not be the end of this brouhaha–stay tuned!


  1. We’ve been covering the story with Tupac’s shooting over at Highbrid Nation and honestly I don’t know. I have no doubt that Diddy is a shady character but somehow I just don’t buy that he knew or was somehow involved. I’m gonna be watching this one closly though.

  2. I’ve always believed that Diddy had a hand in Tupac’s death. He’s a somewhat shady guy who is fast to pull a gun. I doubt any libel suit will come up from this because that will require court appearances with possible testimonies under oath!
