'Palace' in rap star's sights

P DIDDY is planning to buy a British soccer team.

P DIDDY is planning to buy a British soccer team.

The multi-millionaire rapper is reportedly making moves to invest in struggling London club Crystal Palace - which is currently facing bankruptcy and has had 10 league points deducted after going into administration - but is also looking at other sports teams in need of a major cash injection.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Diddy was in London to meet football fixers a couple of weeks ago. The finance is in place, he's just deciding who he thinks he'll make a bid for.

"Portsmouth - who are also in severe debt - were mentioned but he thought Palace were a better idea.

"He could cover their debt and bankroll a return to the Premier League. He liked the name as well."

A spokesperson for the US star - real name Sean Combs - confirmed he is looking to invest in a soccer team, but did not confirm if the Championship side was his current favourite.

The 40-year-old star - who is though to be worth almost R4billion - recently showed he is happy to splash out on a night out in London.

The hip-hop star amazed revellers at London's Runway club by having the DJ play a 30-minute set of his songs to signal his arrival - and insisted on having his own Sean John fragrance sprayed into the room every 20 minutes.

A source said: "All eyes were on Diddy. You could smell him coming a mile off. It was as if a king had arrived - but you could hardly see him under all that mist from the perfume. Girls were throwing themselves at him. It was wild." - Bang
