Diddy vs. Bruckheimer

Battle Over $23 Million

Bev Hills Mansion?

EXCLUSIVE

A real estate war could be brewing between a Bad Boy founder and a "Bad Boys" producer ... 'cause TMZ has learned Diddy is in the market for the same $23 million Bev Hills mansion that Jerry Bruckheimer is hoping to buy.

Our real estate sources tells us ... Diddy is on the hunt for a brand new pad in certain upscale parts of L.A. ... and one of the homes on his radar is the famous 19,590-square-foot "Harry Cohn" estate in Beverly Hills. In fact, Diddy was photographed at the estate just a few days ago.

Problem is ... Jerry Bruckheimer is also interested in the pad ... and as we previously reported, he put a $23 million offer on the house earlier this month.

Bruckheimer is supposed to close on the house on January 17, but if Diddy decides he HAS to have it, he can still swoop in with a higher bid up until the last minute.

But Jerry shouldn't panic just yet ... sources tell us Diddy probably won't make an offer because he was only planning on dropping $15 mil during this particular real estate venture (even gazillionaires got a budget).

Meantime, sources tell us ... Diddy's been checking out a bunch of other swanky homes with real estate agent Kurt Rappaport -- including a $19 million crib in Bel Air ... with 10 bdrms, 11 baths, staff quarters, media room, wine cellar, sauna ... the works.

It's unclear if he's planning to make an offer on that home ... but he could if he wanted to ... because he's really, really rich.

Don't worry. I doubt Diddy is interested in any hood you would be staying in anyway.

Diddy would lose quickly if it came to any type of bidding war.

Someone should tell that 60yr old woman next to him that dressing like a high schooler isn't the in thing. She could also use a stylist, did she break her brush?

If both buyer and seller signed off on Bruckheimer's offer, and the closing date is set, I don't see how Diddy could "swoop in" with a bigger offer...there would be a lot of legal consequences. And I sure can't believe Bruckheimer would leave that kind of loophole in a contract that large.

This guy is living way beyond his means. Where does he get this money from? He hasn't had a hit record in go long? And, it didn't make him that much money when he did? I'm sure he has major loans out and is just living it up because hell die in debt and doesn't care. There is no way he can afford an 25 million dollar house. Bruckhemier has his own island

Jerry Bruckheimer could buy and sell Diddy many times over.
