Sean “Diddy” Combs has a documented history of violent and dangerous behavior toward women and employees at Bad Boy Entertainment, according to a recent Rolling Stone report. Despite numerous allegations, Combs has yet to face criminal charges. Sources indicate that New York and federal investigators are closing in, particularly after the eight civil lawsuits filed since November and the Homeland Security Investigations raid on his homes in March.

Combs denies all accusations. However, he apologized to ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura after CNN obtained a 2016 video showing him physically assaulting her in a hotel.

Witnesses told CNN and Rolling Stone that potential witnesses might testify against Combs before a federal grand jury in New York. The Southern District of New York has interviewed witnesses about sex trafficking and racketeering claims, as well as Combs’ alleged ties to the Black Mafia Family cartel.

Diddy’s Allegations from Howard University to Bad Boy Entertainment

While attending Howard University, Combs was reportedly known for his violent behavior. One former student recalled that Combs disrupted his then-girlfriend’s English class, making her tense. Witnesses alleged he physically attacked her with a belt in front of their dorm, leaving her crying and fearful.

In another incident, a woman under the pseudonym “Anna” alleged that Combs tried to solicit sex from her at a 2001 party after he was acquitted of weapons charges related to the 1999 Club New York shooting. Anna claimed, “I’m getting touched on my shoulder, my arms, my back. He’s like, ‘Oh, yeah, you like that? I know you like that.’ Like really, really gross.” She learned later that Combs had requested her boss to solicit her for sex.

Former employees of Bad Boy Entertainment described Combs’ abusive behavior. Felicia Newsome, the former manager of Bad Boy’s studio, recalled stopping Combs from beating a woman during a fight. Combs and Harve Pierre allegedly gang-raped a 17-year-old at the studio in 2003.

Combs’ attorney Jonathan Davis stated, “Mr. Combs cannot comment on settled litigation, will not comment on pending litigation, and cannot address every allegation picked up by the press from any source, no matter how unreliable. We are aware that the proper authorities are conducting a thorough investigation and therefore have confidence any important issues will be addressed in the proper forum, where the rules distinguish facts from fiction.”

Joi Dickerson Neal, one of several women suing Combs, emphasized that the lawsuit “isn’t about money. It’s about making sure the world sees that this man who rose to the level of an ‘icon’ is actually sick and has left so many victims.”

As of May 29, reports indicate that victims might testify before a grand jury in the Southern District of New York. This step could escalate the investigation against Combs, bringing his alleged abusive behavior into criminal courts.
