Seems like just about every other celebrity has a weed company in their portfolio. But, shockingly, not Sean “Diddy” Combs.
That, however, may be about to change. Diddy has been making some not-so-cryptic comments that suggest he wants to sling some legal weed. Combs has been teasing about a partnership with Dia Simms, who used to be his president at Combs Enterprises and has now started BRN Group, which is described as a “first of its kind, privately-held, global brand development, management and distribution company that licenses, manages and distributes superior cannabis brands worldwide.” The company will be headquartered in Toronto and New York City. And focus on hemp CBD products to start.
“I am extremely proud of the work that Dia has done for Combs Enterprises, and wish her the best as she launches BRN Group and changes the cannabis game,” Combs told Yahoo Finance Canada in a statement, before adding that, “I am confident our paths will be crossing again very soon.”
So, in other words, it’s an aggressively corporate cannabis gig for the former hip-hop star. Cool?
