Publisher Random House Inc accuses rapper P. Diddy for not paying a $300,000 advance for the autobiography he never completed. In lawsuit filed on Monday at the state Supreme Court in Manhattan, New York, Random House Inc accuses P.Diddy and his corporation, Bad Boy, for "corrupting" other's money. By means of which P. Diddy had never completed or even wrote the autobiography which he, based on the agreement signed with the publisher Ballantine imprint in 1998, agreed to complete and deliver to the publisher in 1999.
After waiting for over 5 years, the publisher still doesn't get the manuscript or the return of the money they advanced P. Diddy. Won't wait any longer, the publisher then sends the case to court demanding the advance's return, plus interest from the rapper and his corporation. Commenting on the allegation, P. Diddy's publicist, Rob Shuter, says that his client would like to quickly solve it without litigation.
