Making The Band Choreographer Won't Work With Diddy's Ego

MAKING THE BAND choreographer LAURIE ANN GIBSON has ruled out ever working with hip-hop mogul SEAN COMBS again, because his ego makes it difficult to maintain a professional relationship. Gibson worked with Combs throughout the hit U.S. reality series, but was sacked from the TV programme earlier this year (May07) after an alleged altercation with the rapper at a New York venue. She claims a heated argument broke out between herself and Combs, which resulted in fellow Making The Band judge Michael Bivins restraining her while the Come To Me hitmaker threatened her with a chair. Gibson filed a formal complaint against Combs following her firing for breach of contract, but no ruling has been made on the lawsuit to date. And Gibson claims the problems on the set of Making The Band all stemmed from Combs not being able to grasp the extent of the dance work the contestants had to put in. She tells New York Magazine, "The problem was definitely P. Diddy and working with his ego. "It was really him that gave me trouble because he couldn't really understand that at certain points (the Making The Band process) was difficult and hostile. I mean, the girls were amazing and the boys were not the problem."
