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.

WRONG...in california, if it is to close on the 17th, that means it is already in escrow...and once in escrow, the seller cannot up the price and the buyer has the property under the instructions of the purchase to close...if the buyer fails to honor the purchase instructions, then buyer loses the deposit...

Way to give back to the community P-Douchey. Sure could feed lots of kids, but I guess you need another roof over your head. Lol

I don't know what is worse about Diddy, his poor grammar or horrible taste in clothes. Nothing is worse than a middle aged man who still dresses like he's 25. I wouldn't want this donkey face to be my neighbor, he's disgusting

Why does the fact that Sean Diddy Combs is successful seem to be a sore point for many of the people posting on this site? The fact that he comes from a humble background? Hmmm, I can think of many rockers, country singers and other artists whose humble beginnings do not cause such a stir when they are seen enjoying their money. Why all the hating and envy? When other's lives and success makes you feel uneasy, you may want to ask yourself if you have tried hard enough with yours.
