"I would like to buy the Panthers", Diddy tweeted.

Billionaire Michael Rubin is reportedly looking to the celebrity and National Basketball Association worlds while putting together a group of possible minority owners to support his bid to buy the Carolina Panthers.

That group is being led by Michael Rubin, an e-commerce billionaire who filed formal notices Monday to the National Football League and to the bank handling the sale of the Panthers on behalf of current owner and team founder Jerry Richardson.

L. Jon Wertheim and Viv Bernstein of Sports Illustrated reported "at least four former Panthers employees have received "significant" monetary settlements due to inappropriate workplace comments and conduct by owner Jerry Richardson, including sexually suggestive language and behavior, and on at least one occasion directing a racial slur at an African-American Panthers scout".

Charlotte businessman Felix Sabates is leading a local group looking to partner with another bidder. The eventual buyer will have to be approved by three-quarters of National Football League owners. The rapper/entrepreneur further stated that among his first acts as owner would be to sign free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Neither Combs nor Curry have the money to consider being a majority owner. To date, the National Football League has never had an African-American majority owner.

"Obviously I have a day job, but I've got people that are plugged in and are trying to see how to make that happen", Curry told reporters in December. "I've had nothing really to say about it besides that I'm very interested and very willing to do what it takes to make that happen".

Neither man has the requisite net worth to serve as a majority owner-Forbes pegs the Panthers' worth at $2.3 billion and Combs' net worth at roughly $820 million.

Shortly after Richardson conveyed his intention to sell, both Combs and Curry, a North Carolina native, expressed interest in joining a group to buy the team.

Per ESPN, Rubin - who owns stakes in the 76ers, the NHL's New Jersey Devils and Crystal Palace of England's Premier League - has also reached out to fellow billionaires David Tepper and Ben Navarro.
