...That Puff Daddy (or Just Diddy or Diddle Daddle or whatever dumb name Sean Combs wants to be called today) is angling to buy the same Sunset Strip house he's been leasing the last few months.
Back in the early summer of 2008 Mister crazypants Combs set up his lavish camp in a glassy house in the hills for which a gal named Fancy Nancy swore on her vintage Chanel clutch that he was paying around thirty grand a month. A lot of money by most standards, but just pocket change for a self-made mogul who burns through money like a wildfire through Southern California underbrush. The 4 bedroom house offers Pee Papa (or whatever) 3 main bedrooms, an additional bedroom for the staff/entourage where he could probably put up his umbrella carrier and ass wiper in bunk beds, 5.5 bathrooms, a media room, a lovely view towards Century City, and two swimming pools. That's right children, two damn swimming pools.
The house on St. Ives Drive is currently on the market at $5,995,000 (after having been listed last year at $5,495,000 last year prior to P-Daddy signing a lease.
In addition to his (currently temporary) West Coast crib, Mister Diddy has a handful of properties including a mansion on Miami's Star Island where its been rumored and reported that–much to the chagrin and consternation of many–high drama hip-hoppers Rihanna and Chris Brown have been rekindling their love affair.
