At the beginning of the show, Diddy and members of his new hip-hop group, Dirty Money, could be seen prancing around the stage tossing wads of fake $100 bills.
But once the crowd saw there was real cash mixed in, a free-for-all erupted.
“The audience went wild,” said BET spokeswoman Marcy Polanco. “We were like, ‘Oh, my God!’ ”
Sources said there were about $25 to $100 in singles mixed in with the funny money.
In the midst of the frenzy, a bewildered Combs suddenly looked down at his hands and walked out of view.
“As he was throwing the money out to the audience, his ring flew off,” Polanco said.
