THE DADDY AND THE GODFATHER
SEAN 'PUFFY' COMBS is to present an award to James Brown at the 31st annual 'SONGWRITER HALL OF FAME INDUCTION AWARDS' tomorrow (June 15) in NEW YORK.

It has been a troubled year for the singer, whose offices were destroyed by fire in April. Last month, a former employee, Richard Glenn, was charged with arson, theft and felony forgery.

The soullegend had to cancel his Guildford Festival appearance after a court date was set for July 19. Brown denies claims by ex-employee Lisa Ross Agbalaya that he boasted of his "bull testicles" and asked her to wear zebra-print underpants while he massaged her.

He has two UK appearances lined up at: London Brixton Academy (July 9) Essential Festival, Brighton (16)
