Diddy's Off-the-Cuff Dispute

6/2/2008 6:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean "Diddy" Combs is a multi-millionaire mogul who leads a life most can only dream of. So why is he pissed off at a rinky-dink website that sells cufflinks?

We're told Diddy unleashed his big-time lawyers on a website called Cuff-Daddy.com, a small, family-owned cufflink seller. They fired off a letter telling them that the business' name was way too similar to his. Wait -- didn't he change his name to Diddy years ago?

We hear the business gets its name from the owner of the company -- he's just a proud dad who sells cufflinks.

The owner of the company tells us they are going to post a disclaimer on the site to minimize any confusion about the name. They also say they hope to resolve this with Diddy's lawyers as quickly as possible, and are in no way trading on his name-- they're just trying to run their small business.

Reps for Combs did not return our calls for comment.

piss-diddy needs to get a life. give a little to some [black] guy and he wants it all. what if it were the other way around. There would be all kinds of black suppression B.S. being thrown around. This is B.S. So maybe the the person who invented the cuff on a shirt should sue his ass?

Breckenridge A-Basin -
No need to cherish his memory, he is still alive, hence the potential suit. Maybe you should make your own song..."Mo learnin' Mo knowledge".

As far as the P goes...once a 'gangsta' always one...gonna try to make a buck anyway he can, especially off someone that is lower on the financial chain than himself.

I am now going to buy a pair of Cuff-Links from that site. As for Sean John P Ditty Puff Daddy Ass hat, I will look for his product on Bit torrent and point all others there as well.

PS. hows that "ultra premium" vodka selling of yours at you brought out a little bit ago. Hmmmmmmm, an ultra premium vodka?!?!?! Genius!!! Oh wait, thats what we like to call in the industry a boat that has set sail while you were still on the way tot he docks. Maybe a breakthrough "Energy" drink might be a good venture.

TMZ, I hope you Air this story on TV so that Family business makes a mint of this guy.

# 39 - that made no sense....

Combs is his last name. Puff, Diddy, P, etc, etc, were more or less pen names.,

What a pitiful human being. Rot in hell, whatever your name is these days.

He's probably bored since he's now an actor and nobody's hiring him. Hey, a guy's gotta make a living, right?

You're pathetic... leave these poor people alone.

Who knows, maybe he discovered this company because he was about to come out with his own line of cuff links with the same name. Nah, I doubt it. They'd likely still fall under Sean John. Anyway, I can't remember the last time he was referred to as Puff Daddy.
