Long before he became P. Diddy, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs was in the spotlight often. Back in the day, he dated Jennifer Lopez, supported (and financed) rising artists, and made headlines for his collaborations with fellow musicians.

But he"s also been in some hot water. For one thing, he"s feuded with nearly everyone in the music industry. Then, he took heat for allegedly stealing a fan"s idea and attempting to profit off of it.

So when news emerged that Diddy planned to sue BET, fans weren"t shocked. So why did he want to sue BET, and how did it all end?

P. Diddy Wanted To Sue BET Over An On-Stage Fall

In an era that feels like it was decades ago, P. Diddy had a fall that was heard around the world. Well, almost. It was 2015, and the rapper was on stage for a reunion with artists from his label.

The anniversary event celebrated his label and the artists connected to it. But the awards ceremony event might"ve had something sinister behind it -- if Diddy is to be believed.

While he was performing, P. Diddy fell into a hole in the stage. He recovered quickly and continued the show, later joking about it on Instagram. The thing is, it wasn"t negligence or a broken set that caused the fall.

P. Diddy Fell In A Hole That Was Part Of Lil" Kim"s Entrance

One of the artists performing with Diddy at the BET Awards event was Lil" Kim. When she entered the stage, Kim did so from a hole in the stage floor. While it obviously should have been closed at that point, Diddy ended up taking a dive into it.

Suspicions arose when rumblings of a publicity stunt came about, though. Some say that BET purposely arranged for Diddy to look silly while he was on stage, which sounds a bit farfetched. But to be fair, worse things have happened to celebrities in the name of promotional marketing.

So, did Diddy ever take BET to court?

Did P. Diddy Really Sue BET?

Though rumors suggested that Diddy was going to sue BET"s parent company -- Viacom -- nothing formal ever came of it. In fact, it might"ve all been a rumor. In quotes attributed to Diddy, sources say that he claimed BET was making fun of him by leaving Kim"s entryway open.

But those claims are unsubstantiated, and there"s no proof Diddy ever said anything other than "I was getting so loose I fell lol" on Instagram. Sure, Diddy has a lot of drama with everyone from his former flames to fellow rapper and protege J. Cole, but he probably wouldn"t go up against Viacom in court.
