      Diddy is in stormy waters again. The Bad Boy head honcho has been ordered to pay as much as $500,000 for sampling an Ohio Players song on Notorious B.I.G.’s

      Earlier in 2006, a jury awarded $733,878 in damages to the publishing company Bridgeport Music Inc.

      This is the latest among the litany of lawsuits that have docked Diddy. Previously, the rap mogul was hit with $5 million lawsuit by a man who says he was jumped by his bodyguards at a Manhattan nightclub last June. Then came the $19 million lawsuit from one James Sabastino, who claimed that Diddy owes him for audio and video footage of the late great Biggie Smalls.
classic debut, Ready to Die. The song “Ready to Die” allegedly sampled the Ohio Players’ “Singing in the Morning,” without permission.
