Sean "P.Diddy" Combs was hit with a
$25 million dollar lawsuit from a former president of Bad Boy Entertainment,
who claims that the mogul forced him to sign over a 25% interest in the company.
Kirk Burrowes, 40, claims that Combs burst in
his office at Bad Boy brandishing a baseball bat, forcing him to relinquish
his percentage of the company.
"The allegations are pure fantasy,"
Combs told AllHipHop.com. "Kirk Burrowes hasn’t been employed (with Bad
Boy) for seven years and now he makes up a fictional story for financial gain."
The civil racketeering suit, which was filed
in Manhattan Federal Court, named Combs, Bad Boy Entertainment and Kenneth Meiselas,
an attorney for Bad Boy and claims that Combs never followed through on a profit
The lawsuit also claims that Burrowes was "improperly
fired" and that Combs thwarted his management deal with Mary J. Blige.
"He should be ashamed of himself,"
