LA Times to Puff Daddy: Sorry, Bro.

Categories: Crime, Media

puff_daddy.jpgThe LA Times ran a story on March 17 implicating Sean Combs, aka P Diddy, aka Puff Daddy, in a 1994 assualt on Tupac Shakur. The Times was like, "Our bad," after confirming that the documents used to support the article were not so much true as totally fake, according to an article in today's Guardian UK. And probably forged by the prison inmate with a "history of exaggerating his place in the rap music world" who supplied them. The documents in question were supposed to originate from the FBI, but muckraking Web site, the Smoking Gun, pointed out that they were typed on a type writer instead of a computer and had sections blacked out. Also, they were helpfully illustrated with crayon drawings.(pic from Associated Press)-Andy Wright
