Puff Daddy Addressed the Rift Between Him and Biggie’s Daughter
When Puff Daddy announced his Bad Boy Family Reunion concert--a show celebrating the late Notorious B.I.G. and acts past and present on Puff's long-standing label--most hip-hop fans seemed excited about the news. But B.I.G.'s daughter T'yanna Wallace blasted Diddy on Twitter for not giving her tickets to the show.
“The bad boy concert is for my dad’s bday but I got NOT ONE TICKET," she tweeted. "Just wanna point that out." She also tweeted that Puff doesn't do anything to help her family, calling him lame.
T'yanna later deleted her tweet and said that she and Diddy resolved their issue. In an interview with Hot 97, Puff Daddy explained the situation between he and T'yanna.
"I had already put tickets to the side for the family of course," he said. "People were notified. They didn't notify her. We don't have no problem."
He also admitted that communication between he and Biggie's firstborn had dropped off in recent years and that he wanted to do better.
"I called her and I let her know that I love her and I know that she doesn't see me all the time. I told her like, I know I can get out of pocket but I also told her as a man, if I ever had made you feel like that where I haven't checked in on you, I apologize."
The Bad Boy Reunion is scheduled to kick off May 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY; and it was recently announced that there will be a second night of performances. Puff Daddy, Jay Z, Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans, Mase and Puff mentioned DMX--with more are expected to take the stage.
