Homeland Security agents raided properties owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs, an entertainment icon in Miami and Los Angeles. The raid was related to a New York sex trafficking case. Combs’s Los Angeles production company is linked to the Holmby Hills property, while Combs owns the Miami property.

Combs’s target is not known, but in the past few months, he has been sued for sexual harassment and rape. Combs’s former girlfriend R&B singer Cassie Ventura sued him in November 2012, “alleging sexual abuse including rape” according to the Associated Press.

Homeland Security Investigations New York (HSI New York) executed law enforcement action as part of an ongoing investigation earlier on Tuesday with the assistance of HSI Los Angeles and HSI Miami. Our local law enforcement partners also assisted. The Department of Homeland Security released a press release stating that it would provide more information when it becomes available.

Combs has been accused of being a serial sexual abuser.

Forbes:

In a later lawsuit filed in November, Joie Dickerson Neal claimed that Combs had drugged her in 1991, sexually abused her, and secretly taped the assault.

Separately in November, an anonymous plaintiff accused Combs and singer-songwriter Aaron Hall of raping her and a friend in 1990 or 1991 after meeting at an MCA Records event in New York—a suit that, like the Dickerson-Neal complaint, was filed shortly before the expiration of a New York law temporarily allowing lawsuits for older assault allegations that would ordinarily be past the statute of limitations.

Combs faced another sexual assault lawsuit in December. The suit accused the rapper of drugging the unnamed victim and participating in the gang rape in 2003 when the victim was 17 years old.

Variety reports that the most recent lawsuit filed against Combs occurred last month. Producer Rodney “Lil Rod’ Jones sued Combs in New York alleging he had been “subjected” to “unwanted advances” by Diddy associates and forced to have sexual relations with sex workers employed by Combs.

Rapper 50 Cent, who has been in a feud with Combs for years, wrote on Instagram, under a picture of Combs’s sons: “S-t got real, the Fed’s are in all the cribs. Damn, they got the kids in cuffs.”

Combs has been called out by the “In Da Club’ rapper on social media for years. He even joked about Combs’ gay relationships with multiple men.

Associated Press:

Seven women sued hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, alleging that he had raped and assaulted them. Two women sued Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, alleging sexual abuse.

We might normally take these accusations with a grain or two of salt. However, Combs has been accused of having unwanted sex since the 1990s. His sexual adventures have become the stuff of social-media legend.

All of the women are not liars.
