Diddy Taxed to the Max

Mo' money mo' problems for Puff Daddy.

Records show the rap mogul's popular soul food eatery in Atlanta, Justin's Restaurant, owes $7,373 in back taxes -- this according to The Detroit News.

Diddy's reps claim it was all just a misunderstanding and say the government was sending notices to the restaurant's headquarters office in NYC -- which closed over ten years ago.

Bottom line -- Diddy says the check's in the mail.
