50 Cent Pledges to Donate Proceeds From Diddy Documentary to Victims of Sexual Assault

Trigger warning: The following story contains descriptions of sexual abuse and rape. Following a fourth allegation of sexual assault against Bad Boy Records founder Sean “Diddy” Combs, 50 Cent announced in a tweet on Thursday morning (Dec. 7) that proceeds from his upcoming documentary about Combs’ alleged misdeeds will go to victims of sexual violence.

“I can confirm that the untitled Diddy documentary is in development through G-Unit Film and Television with Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson serving as Executive Producer,” a spokesperson for Jackson and G-Unit Film/TV said in a statement to Billboard on Thursday. “Proceeds from this documentary that G-Unit Film & Television receives will go to victims of sexual assault and rape.”

“WTF at some point you gotta just do the right thing,” the rapper also shared in an Instagram post about donating the proceeds.

In 50’s social media posts, the MC shared footage of former Bad Boy artist Mark Curry alleging that Combs spiked bottles of alcohol that would be served only to women at parties the mogul was throwing.

A spokesperson for Combs has not yet returned Billboard‘s request for comment on 50’s post or the documentary project.

50 — well-known for taking fellow rappers to task — announced his documentary within hours of the news that a fourth woman had filed suit against Combs, accusing Diddy of an alleged gang rape that occurred at Diddy’s New York recording studio in 2003 when she was 17. The graphic details of the latest filing against Combs comes just weeks after he settled a lawsuit filed by former girlfriend singer Cassie Ventura, who claimed that she was subjected to years of alleged violent physical abuse and rape, which allegedly included forcing her to “engage in sex acts with male sex workers” while Combs watched and masturbated.

Diddy was later sued by two other women who claimed he sexually abused them. The embattled mogul responded to the allegations on Wednesday (Dec. 6) in a statement posted to Instagram. “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.”

At press time, no additional information was available on the release date or distribution of the 50 Cent documentary.
