Diddy Still Upset By Times Article, Apology Not Enough

SEAN `DIDDY' COMBS is still considering taking legal action against the Los Angeles Times newspaper after an article linked him to a 1994 attack on rapper TUPAC SHAKUR. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chuck Philips claimed Diddy knew all about a gun attack on the late rapper, who lost his life two years later, and did nothing to stop it. Philips has since revealed his information was based on bogus documents. The Times' editors printed a front-page apology on Thursday (27Mar08), but the rap mogul's lawyer Howard Weitzman reveals Diddy was underwhelmed by it. Weitzman says, "The Los Angeles Times apology is, at best, a first step, but it doesn't undo the false and defamatory nature of the story, or the suspicion and innuendo that Mr. Combs has to endure due to these untruthful allegations and the irresponsible conduct of this particular reporter." Times editor Russ Stanton has launched an internal review of the documents and the working methods involved in the reporting of the story. He says, "We published this story with the sincere belief that the documents were genuine."
