Diddy, Colin Kaepernick And Steph Curry Want To Buy The Carolina Panthers
After Sports Illustrated released a report detailing some of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson‘s alleged sexual and racial misconduct toward former employees, he released a statement citing his desire to sell the Panthers.
“I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership. Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season,” Richardson said. “We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played. I hope everyone in this organization will be firmly focused on just one mission: To play and win the Super Bowl.”
Following Richardson’s announcement Diddy took to Instagram to voice his interest in purchasing the NFL team while also declaring that if he owned it he would sign Kaepernick.
Since making the announcement both Kaepernick and Curry have expressed interest in buying the team alongside Diddy. “I want in” Curry responded while Kaepernick said “I want in on this ownership group! Let’s make it happen!”

Back in November Diddy celebrated his 48th birthday by changing his name to “Brother Love.”
“I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, or any of my other monikers,” Diddy declared on a video posted to social media. However, only a couple of days later, Diddy backpedaled on the name change, saying that he was “only playin'” with the new moniker.
“If you wanna call me Love, you can call me Love, baby. But I was only playin,'” the artist and entrepreneur said.
