You'll recall P Diddy's complaints about the high cost of air fuel from last week, of course. The poor thing couldn't afford to fly his private jet, he complained.
Thye Palm Beach Post, though, has been doing some digging and reckons that it's found the cost of aviation fuel shouldn't be a problem for Diddy at all: he doesn't own a jet:
Further evidence he was making it up? He hasn't got a clue what planes cost, either:
“The truly rich aren’t affected by oil when it comes to private planes,” said the private aviation source in Palm Beach. “Monthly payments on a $20 million-plane and crews are expensive.”
What makes this even more embarrassing for Diddy is that he took MTV off to a hanger to see a jet which he appears to have told them he owned.
His people try and explain how he might have got confused and suddenly started talking about owning a plane when he doesn't:
That company sells flight hours on private jets and calls it “fractional ownership.”
I suppose if you had a timeshare in Spain, you might start to get confused and assume you had some sort of presidential status in Madrid.
