Libraries of the world are a happier place this morning: it looks like plans for Puff Daddy'a autobiography have been shelved, as he and Random House come to a settlement over the advance they gave him for a book that never arrived:

Citing a confidentiality agreement, Random House spokesman Stuart Applebaum would not say whether Combs had returned the money, but did say that the publisher would not be releasing a book by him.

If it was us, even if we didn't get the USD300,000 back, we'd see not having to publish his scribbly-writing as a a victory for the publisher.
