Diddy And Madonna. Deny, Deny, Deny.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Sean “Diddy” Combs is linked to the 1994 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur. The paper claims they are getting their information from FBI records, interviews with people at the scene and statements to the FBI by an informant.

“The story is a lie,” the hip-hop mogul said in a statement Monday. “It is beyond ridiculous and completely false. Neither (the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.) nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened. … I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story.”

Across the pond, Madonna is denying that her 7 year marriage to Guy Ritchie is on the rocks. Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg, of course, gave the obligatory statement on Monday, “I am delighted to confirm that Mr. and Mrs. Guy Ritchie remain happily married.”

Rumors began to swirl when Madonna accepted her induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. She wasn’t wearing a wedding ring, and she did not mention her husband in her acceptance speech. For his part, Guy Ritchie did not attend the ceremony, nor did he attend Madonna’s United Nations fundraiser last month.

According to Rosenberg, Madonna and Guy have been living on opposite sides of the world for a few months now, due to their work schedules. “[The Ritchie’s] are joyfully back together at home in London. All is well and wonderful in the Ritchie household.”
