LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sean "Diddy" Combs has settled a lawsuit brought by a man who claims the rapper and fashion mogul punched him after a post-Oscar party outside a Hollywood hotel.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed in court papers.
After-hours calls to attorneys for both sides were not immediately returned.
The lawsuit by Gerard Rechnitzer claimed that Combs punched him, pushed his girlfriend and spat on another woman on Feb. 25, 2007 outside Teddy's Nightclub at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Rechnitzer sought unspecified damages.
In a court declaration, Combs said Rechnitzer lunged toward him and that "any contact ... was caused by his forward motion against my open hand."
I LIKE DIDDY YO...AND I GOT ME A NO *** ***...IM WAITING FOR IT TO COME IN THE MAIL
I hope they got alot of cash
I would have sued his *** too. he thinks just because he got money he can treat people like that..O yea puff stay outta day 26(which is gon be a flop) and danity Kane songs they sound better without you on there!!
Tool of the New World order.
TAKE THAT! TKAE THAT!
Punches cost money. Hope me remembers that the next time he raises his hand in anger.
He needs anger management sessions asap.
I love Diddy now the I can walk around saying...
That's like the best word ever!...lol
DIDDY NEED TO SIT HIS DANCING IN EVERYBODY'S VIDEO *** DOWN SOMEWHERE.... MONEY WILL MESS YOU UP IN THE HEAD...
Well Puffy you just ain't the *** to everybody.
I dont know, I heard this story and it sounds like the dude is just after some paper. get a job.
msnbc reported that the police didnt even file charges cause the mans story changed and he stopped cooperating
Why does he look like an ape all the time though
Rechnitzer lunged toward him and that "any contact ... was caused by his forward motion against my open hand." Puff Daddy, Puff, P. Diddy, Diddy, Corn Pops, or Puff the magic dragon was going to have to pay. Money is only going to get you so far. While celebrities never get the same treatment as the general public, this happened in LA. Considering his net worth, child support payments, and last year's earnings, there was no way to avoid settlement.
He punched me too...i need that dough up off him!
Man y errybody hatin on Diddy! *** a lot of time people need to get they azz knocked out! sometime people think that just because you got a lil dough they can say and do what they want to u and you wont get busy with them because they will sue you ***! We dont know what happended and Diddy hit that guy. Diddy is a business man who makes his money. that settlement aint going to stop Diddy's money. I'm on Diddy's side!
That's good for his *** ***. These celebs kill me. Thinking that they are above the law, and can do whatever they want.
I wish he had came at a real ***!gga, rather than a soft dude. I would have liked to see that suicide attempt. LOL
@ goddie: Money isn't everything. Money didn't protect Biggie's *** did it? Diddy needs a friggin reality check, with his ignorant ***.
And before you start, I don't give a sh!t how much money he has, he's still ignorant and ***. Let him bring his *** over to the Bahamas and disrespect me (with or without my husband around).
I'll friggin stick on his b!tch ***. He just might not make it back to the states where this sh!t is tolerated, and money is worshipped.LOL
Diddy looks like the Geico Lizard on this picture
he hit me last time i was in new york! i was walking down fifth ave and felt sometbody punch me in the chest, i looked up and said 'puffy is that u'? and he said 'my bad i thought u was somebody else'!
my bad, i was watching 'coming to america' last nite.
this is what happens when u got a load of money!!!
Ok, everyone wants a quick payday from Diddy, this is not anything new?
settling may be a sign of b*tch-assness
just goes to show how some celebs think that they are above the average person.
what floored me was the ESSENCE article with and the outsidewedlockbabymo therwife (who knows). she is the LAST WOMAN IN THE WORLD THAT I WOULD WANT TO BE. yeah, he was not treated well as a child. black folks need to tend to their mental health services issues, lol.
