G O I N G D O W N . . .
New Year eh readers? A time of ‘fun’ and ‘happiness’. A time to look at the future and forget the past. Well, if you’re Puff Daddy this week, then the past is definitely coming back to haunt you.

No, I’m not talking about that time you and your friend Jimmy went camping in 1983 and decided to play ‘tunnels and trains’. I’m talking about a certain court case that could land you in prison for fifteen years if you’re found guilty of a crime you swear you did not commit. Let me remind you.

The words ‘gun’ ‘shooting’ and ‘night club’were involved.

This week, whilst shooting anything that moved in his private zoo, Puff told me: "The scariest thing in the world is to be accused of a crime you did not commit". (No, Puff, it’s actually seeing my Uncle Reggie playing a nude version of ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ with his ‘friends’ from the village).

Puff also paid tribute to his ‘cracking bit of ruff’ Jennifer Lopez. He said: "She’s been so supportive. She believes my innocence, she’s my rock. Although, if push came to shove I’d have to tell the judge that she pulled the trigger and it was her gun".
