Cuff Daddy

Rap star and recording executive Sean “Puffy” Combs has been in trouble more often than he’s been on the record charts recently. His latest misstep: an arrest for illegal gun possession following a Manhattan night club shooting last month.

Police found the weapon, which hadn’t been fired, after they stopped the car in which Combs, 30, and actress-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez had fled the scene. Arrested along with his bodyguard and his driver, Combs denied owning the gun and posted $10,000 bail.

But after two earlier arrests–for threatening a photographer with a gun, and for beating up a fellow music executive–Puff Daddy clearly has more to worry about than declining CD sales.
