Diddy Wants a Piece of Simon Cowell's Idol Paycheck

The rap mogul, it seems, got a look at Cowell’s paycheck from his Idol days … and he wants a piece of it.
“At first when were asking me if I was interested in the job I was like no ... that's not my style,” Diddy told George Lopez on Wednesday’s Lopez Tonight. “But once I heard what Simon makes . . . I would love the job. I've got six kids. If I would get the same check Simon gets … we would have a ball."
Diddy joins a slew of big names that have been bandied around since the Brit announced his departure, including Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Bret Michaels, Shania Twain, Chris Isaak and Harry Connick, Jr.
As of yet, no replacement has been announced. -- Sara Hammel
