Sean “Diddy” Combs has returned his key to the City of New York after Mayor Eric Adams sent him a pair of letters condemning his abuse towards ex-partner Cassie Ventura.

According to the Mayor’s office, Combs returned the key on June 10 after letters were sent to addresses in both New York and Los Angeles on June 4 (Diddy also has a home in Miami, all three of which were raided by Homeland Security in March).

“Like many people, I was deeply disturbed by recent footage of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs assaulting his then partner,” the Mayor began his letter. “I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence. Our city has worked tirelessly to make sure survivors are heard and seen by our administration.”

“The Key to the City of New York is presented to individuals whose service to the public and the common good rises to the highest level of achievement, and who act as a model for fellow and future New Yorkers,” he continued. “After internal deliberations, the Key to the City of New York committee recommended nullifying and rescinding Mr. Combs’ key.”

Combs received the key from Adams during a ceremony in New York’s Times Square on Sept. 15, 2023.

The key is not the only accolade that the mogul has lost since the shocking video surfaced.

Last week, Howard University announced on June 7 that it had revoked the honorary degree conferred upon Combs following a unanimous vote by its Board of Trustees.
