Rap mogul Diddy who is also known as Puff Daddy and whose real name is Sean Combs, wants to buy the Carolina Panthers and become the first African American owner of an NFL team. He is estimated by Forbes magazine to be worth $820 million. The Newyork rapper voiced his interest as Panthers owner and founder Jerry Richardson stepped down in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
“I would like to buy the @Panthers. Spread the word,” tweeted Diddy
“There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history,” he wrote.
Diddy, 48, was ranked the world’s top-paid celebrity on the last Forbes list in June, raking in $130 million in the previous year. Outside of music, his business empire includes fashion lines and a stake in French-made Ciroc vodka.
