Paramount has been shopping BET for a minute now.
Diddy and Byron Allen were the first bold-faced names to be linked to a purchase, but now a supergroup has gotten together to make their play
According to TMZ, 50 Cent, Shaquille O'Neal and Kenya Barris are teaming up with the investment group CVC to make a bid on the network.
While nothing has been finalized they are said to be deep in negotiations.
All three have substantial TV experience, 50 and Kenya in productions and Shaq as on-air talent.
And if they end up buying the network 50 will be able to taunt his old pal Puff.
