I was joking- Diddy denies paying Sting $5,000 per day for sampling his song

The matter of Diddy paying Sting $5,000 per day to sample The Police on the 1997 Biggie ode “I’ll Be Missing You” has been cleared up.

It comes after the owner of Bad Boy Records acknowledged in a recent tweet that the alleged amount he pays the British rock star isn’t actually accurate.

“I want y’all to understand I was joking,” he tweeted on Friday (April 7). “It’s called being Facetious! Me and @OfficialSting have been friends for a long time!

“He never charged me $3K or $5K a day for Missing You. He probably makes more than $5K a day from one of the biggest songs in history.”

As reports about her paying Sting $1.825 million per year spread on social media, the Harlem-born icon must have felt obligated to address them.

However, it’s still not clear whether an agreement was reached when the 1997 song was released.
