: Mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has a reputation for ripping of Bad Boy Artists. But it looks like he may have tried to rip off the wrong artist.
According to an employee of Bad Boy, reggae star Elephant Man became physically violent at a recent meeting at Bad Boy headquarters. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com that Elephant Man and a few friends paid a surprise visit to Diddy’s offices a few days ago. And that’s when all hell broke loose.
The insider explained, “[The receptionist] tried to stop them from going in to see [Diddy], but they just barged into his office.” She continued, “I wasn’t in there to see what happened but there was a lot of commotion, and stuff was breaking … [Then security] rushed in and pushed Elephant Man and his people out of the office.”
And the employee claims that Diddy was shaken up by the incident. She told MediaTakeOut.com, “His [sunglasses] looked like they were bent up and I heard that his lip was busted.”
But Elephant Man apparently wasn’t finished with Diddy. Our insider added, “I couldn’t really understand what Elephant Man was saying, but it was definitely about money … He kept saying that he wanted his money and in between all the money talk he was kept saying bombo clad and ras clad and other words I couldn’t understand.”
No word yet on whether criminal charges will be filed against Elephant Man.
