Sean “Puffy” Combs banned his son Quincy from appearing on the Fox television show Empire. Know why? Because Puffy found out his son Quincy would have to sign over a portion of his musical rights to the Fox network.
Here’s what’s reported:
“Stars on the show are subject to similar music contracts as those on other shows like American Idol. Empire features a score curated by Timbaland and includes original songs that are sold on iTunes and Spotify.”
Here’s the drop:
“Diddy kicked up a huge stink and called all the top brass at 20th Century Fox TV to get them, to change their rules over music rights.
He said there was no way his son was signing over his intellectual property. So he banned him from the show.”
