Rap mogul Diddy (who is worth $700 million) punched rap star Drake (worth $160 million) outside a Miami nightclub early Monday morning, according to TMZ. It supposedly wasn’t about a woman (Drake fought Chris Brown at a New York nightclub over Rihanna in 2012). According to eyewitnesses, it was about business. Diddy was overheard saying, “You will never disrespect me,” before clocking Drake.
New York Daily News doesn’t believe it’s sheer money at stake, reporting that Diddy punched Drake three times and it could have been because Drake disrespected his girlfriend, Let’s Get Crazy singer, Cassie Ventura. Diddy and Drake were at the club to celebrate DJ Khaled’s birthday. After the altercation, Drake left the club and went to the hospital and is now rumored to be suing Diddy. Diddy went back into the club and continued partying in the VIP room. Diddy has been made of Teflon when it comes to the law, brushing up against trouble and skirting it time and time again. Is assaulting someone of serious means a big mistake for the mogul? Sure there’s a $540 million difference in wealth, but anybody worth $160 million can hire a damn good lawyer.
