Diddy Loses $20,000 Ring During BET Show Taping


Vibe / October 17, 2009

During a recent taping of BET’s 106 & Park, Diddy lost something and wasn’t letting anybody leave the building until he found it — it being a $20,000 pinky ring.

According to the New York Post, Diddy was throwing out money–fake money at that–into the crowd. But, once they realized real $100 bills were mixed in, a frenzy took place. Sometime while he was making it rain, his ring flew off his finger and into the audience.

In an attempt to find the ring, he asked that security frisk the entire studio audience until it turned up.

Shortly after the incident, the hip-hop mogul took to his Twitter profile (@IAmDiddy), expressing his reaction to the incident.

“The craziest sh** just happened to me lol I guess its sh**tin’ on me season.. Enjoy it while it lasts!!!!! lol life is crazy,” he tweeted.

It’s unclear if the ring was found. But, one witness told the Post that it’s still missing and Diddy ain’t getting it back.

“He ain’t getting’ it back,” the witness said. “Someone pocketed that, and they probably took it to the nearest jeweler.”
