Who is Diddy?
He is responsible for the dance hit, and Feverpitch/Positiva release, "Give Me Love", which peaked at #23 in the UK Singles Chart in July 1997. He also undertook a number of Blondie single remixes for the Chrysalis Records. His remix of Blondie's "Atomic" reached #1 on the American Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
In 2006, Dearlove successfully sued American rapper Sean Combs, who at that time used the stage name "P. Diddy". Combs wanted to change his stage name to simply "Diddy", but the terms of Dearlove's settlement ordered Combs to pay him "significant damages" and barred him from releasing music under the name "Diddy" in the UK.
