Mark Wahlberg and Diddy Bet $250K on Mayweather-Pacquiao (Video)
I don’t know about you, but when I imagine what super-rich celebrities are like when they’re just sitting around hanging out, a big part of the picture is casually betting massive amounts of money with each other on sporting events. So I’m happy to report that my imaginings have been proven correct, at least when it comes to Mark Wahlberg and Diddy, who were recently filmed placing $250,000 on the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Some Doubting Thomases out there might question the authenticity of Mark Wahlberg and Diddy’s $250,000 bet, appearing as it did in a short Twitter video ad from Showtime Sports. But think about it – both of these guys are mega millionaires, so why wouldn’t they bet $250,000 on the fight of the century? Wouldn’t you, if you could?
In case you’re interested, Diddy’s going for Mayweather while Wahlberg is backing Pacquiao – but you can see it all go down for yourself in the video below, fresh from the Showtime Sports Twitter account. And if you’re thinking about putting down some scratch of your own, the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight is happening on May 2nd.
Here’s the video:
