P Diddy has had his credit card details stolen and posted online.

According to TMZ, the hip-hop mogul is reportedly launching an internal investigation to find the culprit after they obtained private information about him and leaked it online to a website.

In addition to publishing the details of his American Express Black Card account, other information including his passport details and private phone numbers were also posted, as well as a suggestion that he is a member of the secret society the Illuminati.

Although a representative for the rapper declined to issue a comment, 'sources' close to Diddy have revealed that he is aware of the situation and has ordered a private internal investigation to identify the person responsible.

Earlier this year, P Diddy topped a list of the world's richest rappers after amassing a $475 million (£295 million) personal fortune. He claimed to not be fussed by the list, telling MTV: "I think people think that I have that money actually sitting at home in the basement. To everyone calling me for a loan today, I do not have that money today."

Yesterday, meanwhile, he announced the launch of his new book Culio, which is inspired by the female backside. The coffee-table tome will be released on November 22.
