Random House Wants Ridiculous Advance Back

This week, Random House has filed suit against P. Diddy for declining to return a $300,000 advance for an autobiography he never wrote, according to the AP. The deadline was Dec 15, 1999.

$300K for P Diddy’s memoir? Good pete, is that realistic? How many books would have to be sold to make back that advance, or was Random House planning to cash in on movie rights? Here, P. Diddy is pictured explaining that writing isn’t his thing.
