Rap star loses Diddy name rights
Rap star Sean Combs is no longer to be called "Diddy" in the UK after he agreed a settlement with a music producer already known by that name.
The rapper, also known as Puff Daddy and Puffy, agreed to pay more than 110,000 pounds to settle out of court with Richard "Diddy" Dearlove.
Dearlove, best known for his dance remix of the Blondie hit Atomic, had used the name since 1992.
"I'm really happy and relieved," Dearlove told the Guardian newspaper.
