Diddy To Pay $5,000 To Sting For The Rest Of His Life

Earlier this month, it had also emerged that US rapper Diddy has been paying Sting alomost $5,000 for almost three decades.

This hefty price came about following the release of his 1997 hit ‘I’ll Be Missing You’, which was sampled on the Police’s hit ‘Every Breath You Take’ without Sting’s permission.

Sting had confirmed this in an interview The Breakfast Club in 2018, where he was asked “Is it true that Diddy has to pay you USD $2,000 (£1,608) because he didn’t ask permission to sample ‘Every Breath You Take’?”.

“Yep, for the rest of his life”, Sting replied.

Taking to Twitter, Diddy corrected Sting, claiming that he pays the English singer $5,000 a day.

“Nope. 5K a day”, the rapper also tweeted. “Love to my brother @OfficialSting!”. 

The song itself was released by Diddy, as a tribute to his friend and fellow rapper Christopher “‘The Notorious B.I.G’ Wallace, who was fatally shot dead in 1997.
