Combs, the 48-year-old entertainment mogul whose Bad Boy Records and Sean John brands have influenced the world of music and fashion for decades, has been rallying fans on social media to support his dream of buying the NFL team. Earlier this week, Combs posted a picture of himself wearing a Panthers jersey, and spoke about God’s involvement in his vision to own the team.
“This picture was taken back in 2003. This is God’s work,” he tweeted Sunday in a photo of himself wearing an Panthers jersey. “It’s time!! ATTN all @NFL owners, it’s time for diversity!! It’s time for black ownership!! The time is now. Let’s make it happen!!
The tweet comes after former Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, 81, announced that he would be selling the team following an investigation into allegations brought against him. While Richardson founded the Panthers, at least four allegations of workplace misconduct have been brought against him which resulted in settlements being paid out, according to Sports Illustrated.
In a letter posted on the Panthers website, Richardson announced that he would sell his franchise at the end of the season. Until then, he is focusing on the team winning a Super Bowl.
“I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership,” Richardson wrote. “Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season. We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played.”
