A week before Christmas last year, Diddy and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry announced their desire to co-own the Carolina Panthers, when news of the owner’s, departure hit the web (he’s being accused of workplace misconduct).
Three months later it looks as if the pair may have been forced to drop out of their quest to be minority owners of an NFL team. And the reason — believe it or not, money. The bid reached a whopping $2.5 billion and if the number is correct (bidding is confidential), it would be the most expensive sale of a professional sports team in the United States. So what happened? The Bad Boy honcho and NBA champion were slated to partner with Fanatics owner and billionaire Michael Rubin, but when the price spiked, the 46-year-old reportedly dropped out of the running.
There are no updates on whether the two will partner with another investor, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Diddy and Steph found a way back in the room. The music mogul has been in the news all week after his announcement of an app that would allow people to find black owned businesses in any given city. His partner? JAY-Z.
