Diddy’s Miami & Los Angeles Homes Reportedly Raided by Federal Agents

A pair of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami were reportedly raided by law enforcement on Monday (March 25).

Fox 11 reports that the raids were executed by Homeland Security “in connection” with an ongoing federal sex trafficking investigation.

Helicopters scoped out the chaotic scene in Holmby Hills. Fox added that the property was registered to Bad Boy Films under Diddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment entity along with one of the embattled mogul’s daughters.

With officers swarming the Los Angeles property, video footage appeared to show individuals being detained, two of whom appeared to be Diddy’s sons King Combs and Justin Combs. It’s unknown whether Diddy was at either home during the raids.

TMZ reported on Monday that Homeland Security of New York launched the investigation and the Southern District of New York is handling the case linked to Diddy.

Billboard has reached out to Diddy’s reps for comment as well as the Los Angeles and Miami police departments.

Diddy has been the subject of numerous sexual assault-related civil lawsuits. Ex-girlfriend Cassie lit the fuse in November 2023 with a lawsuit accusing Diddy of physical abuse, repeated sexual assault and trafficking while they were dating. The two parties agreed to settle the lawsuit less than 24 hours later.

When reached for a statement about the raid reports, Douglas Wigdor — lawyer for Cassie as well as a Jane Doe in a claim against Diddy — responded to Billboard: “We will always support law enforcement when it seeks to prosecute those that have violated the law. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr. Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.”

Soon after Cassie’s suit, Combs was then sued by two other women who claimed they were sexually abused by the hip-hop mogul. 

On Dec. 6, a fourth woman sued Diddy, claiming she was “sex trafficked” and “gang raped” by Combs, former Bad Boy Records president Harve Pierre and another man in 2003 when she was 17 years old.

In the months since, Diddy has been accused of sexual assault in several sprawling complaints. The Bad Boy CEO has denied any wrongdoing and attempted to clear his name with a December post to social media.

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” he wrote. “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.”

A lawyer for Diddy vehemently denied the allegations against his client and referred to the accusations as “pure fiction.”
