    Home of rapper, music mogul Diddy raided by federal authorities in Los Angeles
    • March 25, 2024

    Federal authorities searched the lavish Holmby Hills estate of rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs today, but officials did not disclose the nature of the investigation.

    Agents from the Department of Homeland Security carried out the raid early Monday afternoon in the area of Mapleton Drive and Sunset Boulevard. Video from the scene showed numerous law enforcement officials, a possible armored vehicle and several people detained outside the home. It was unclear if any actual arrests were made.

    It was also unknown of Diddy was home at the time.

    “Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HIS Los Angeles, HIS Miami, and our local law enforcement partners. We will provide further information as it becomes available.”

    TMZ reported that a home owned by Diddy in Miami was also raided Monday as part of the investigation.

    The nature of the probe was unclear, although one report indicated it was part of a federal sex trafficking investigation. Diddy has been targeted in multiple lawsuits in recent months accusing him of sex abuse — allegations the rapper’s attorney has vehemently denied. One of those suits was filed by R&B singer Cassie, a former girlfriend of Diddy. That suit was settled one day after it was filed. Two other women have also filed lawsuits alleging sexual abuse.

    Last month, music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. filed a lawsuit accusing Diddy of groping him while the pair worked together on Diddy’s album “The Love Album: Off the Grid.” The lawsuit also included allegations that Diddy and his son engaged in a “sex-trafficking venture.”

    Diddy’s attorney, Shawn Holley, issued a statement in response saying, “Lil Rod is nothing more than a liar who filed a $30 million lawsuit shamelessly looking for an undeserved payday. His reckless name-dropping about events that are pure fiction and simply did not happen is nothing more than a transparent attempt to garner headlines.

    “We have overwhelming, indisputable proof that his claims are complete lies.”
