Although Diddy is on top now, he is facing a pretty serious legal suite that could hit him hard.
Combs is being sued by his former personal chef, Cindy Rueda, over claims of sexual harassment. Rueda claims that she was “regularly summoned” to serve him meals while “Mr Combs and/or his guests were engaged in, or immediately following, sexual activity” and also alleged that Diddy himself asked if she was attracted to his naked body.
We all know being a cashed-up baller is an important part of hip-hop’s culture so who’s your prediction for the number one spot on next year’s list?
