Don’t give up on the dream yet, Diddy

It all started with a tweet.

A day after Jerry Richardson — who got hit with numerous sexual harassment allegations — announced that he was selling the Carolina Panthers, Diddy sent out a tweet saying that he wanted to buy the team:

Diddy started campaigning aggressively to buy the team. He was able to get help from the likes of Stephen Curry and even Colin Kaepernick.

The dream came to an end on Tuesday. Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner David Tepper has agreed to buy the team for a record $2.2 billion. Tepper is expected to finalize the deal on Tuesday.

So what happened to Diddy? Well, the mogul teamed up with Curry and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin to try and make a bid. But the group dropped out after the price went well north of the $2 billion price tag.
