These include Juvenile, Knicks player Eddy Curry and the infamous late payer Scott Storch. I think Jacob will have to join a very long line when it comes to getting his cash from Scott Storch somehow.

Regardless of if Diddy is her man or not, you can guarantee with those lips and that body, Cassie has no concerns in finding a man of her very own and not one that comes with a whole load of baggage.
