Rap tycoon Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy, was locked in a bitter bidding war with ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, for the rights to acquire Fuse TV.
Puff, who hates to lose, was outbid by J-Lo and the NuvoTV network -- the media outfit that ponied up the cash for the purchase. Puff Daddy badly needed Fuse TV's viewership to boost the ratings of his own Revolt TV. Fuse TV is seen in 74 million homes while Revolt TV is only in 22 million homes.

Two well-known closeted bisexuals got together yesterday on the set of Fuse TV. Host, Toure interviewed singer Trey Songz (who earned his 'Z' back because he is no longer a one-hit wonder). I have no clue what they talked about. But the big buzz online is the "slave rape" tweets made by Toure under the guise of his cousin on Twitter earlier this week.
It's been known for a while that Toure is a bit unstable, but his instability became a lot more obvious when he began retweeting racist tweets from a user he claimed was his cousin.
In one tweet, Toure, under the guise of his cousin, wrote:
"i'm not toure, but i am starting to worry about his mental health to the point i don't wanna pile on. "weird place"?"
The tweets, mostly about slavemaster rape on plantations in the deep South, would have gone unnoticed were it not for Toure retweeting them to his 14,000 followers, some of whom were so upset that they asked him to stop reposting the tweets.
Toure later admitted he made up the tweets himself, but then he deleted his own bizarre confession. It's obvious that the writing styles of both Twitter accounts are the same.
Luckily, What About Our Daughters blog founder, Gina, was online at the time and got a screen grab of Toure's lunacy.
If you check Toure's Twitter @Tourex, you will see where he deleted all his tweets, including the one where he wrote, "pretty sneaky, sis. I wrote that stuff." Interestingly, he (and his supposed cousin) haven't been back online since Mar. 1, which is strange for such a prolific Tweeter. It can only be assumed that Toure's employers, MSNBC and Fuse, "got at him" for his slavemaster rape rants.
As I've said before, Twitter is not the place for people with poor impulse control because once you put it out there, you can't take it back.
