In an interview with Port magazine, Duffy revealed that while the two didn't come to blows, they did get in a big fight over whether or not Marc should take over John Galliano's job.
"Marc really wanted to stay at Louis Vuitton and I just want him to do whatever makes him happy, and that was all that I was saying to him all along. I think that he felt that because when I was asked if I thought that he was capable of doing that and I said ‘yes’, he thought that meant I wanted him to do it, and that’s not what I meant at all, but we straightened it all out in the end and it worked out just fine. But, I know it sounds so silly now, we had a big fight over it."
So it wasn't about money, after all.
Oh well, like Duffy said, everything worked out for the best and Marc can get back to what matters: fashion!
