Judge To Diddy: "You Owe 4 Million Dollars...And It's Time To Pay Up!!"

5:43:00 PM

I just got the four - uno - uno about Bad Boy records getting dealt a serious financial blow. I know all you have to remember that judge who awarded Bridgeport and Westbound a $4 million dollar judgment in punitive damages when a jury found Bad Boy Entertainment, Justin Combs Publishing, Universal Records and Sean "Diddy" Combs guilty of illegally sampling "Singing In The Morning" by The Ohio Players right? (well if you didn't I just informed you). Well it looks like the plot has thickened on this lawsuit. Read more below.

Word on the streetz is that the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit rejected Combs' appeal last Wednesday (October 17), after ruling that Combs released and re-released "Ready to Die" with knowledge that the sample had not been cleared. "Ready to Die" was produced by Sean "Diddy" Combs and Osten Harvey Jr. and is the titled track to B.I.G.'s 1994 classic album Ready to Die.

I'm hearing that all these legal issues is stressing the mogul out beyond belief. As we all know, Diddy has been in out of the court room for virtually the past ten years. From child support cases, to assault cases he's shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. No word yet on what Sean's next move will be.
