Diddy breaks social media silence as sex-trafficking probe ‘set to widen to cover 1999 shooting’: Updates

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs declares innocence after FBI raids of his homes

Sean “Diddy” Combs has posted on social media for the first time since the raids on his homes in Miami and Los Angeles.

On 25 March, his mansions were raided by federal agents from US Homeland Security in connection to a federal sex trafficking investigation. Diddy described the actions of agents as a “gross overuse of military-level force” and insisted he is innocent of any wrongdoing.

That day, a man police have described as Diddy’s “drug mule” – Brendan Paul – was arrested in a Miami airport for allegedly carrying “contraband inside of his personal travel bags”.

Over Easter weekend, Diddy was spotted several times in Miami near his Star Island mansion.

He also took to Instagram on Sunday – making no mention of the current firestorm, but sharing a series of photos of his toddler daughter. “HAPPY EASTER from Baby Love,” he captioned it.

It comes amid a report from The New York Post that the probe is set to widen to reopen an investigation into the infamous 1999 Club New York shooting.

The raids come after Diddy has faced accusations of sexual abuse from multiple alleged victims in a series of lawsuits in recent months.

Infamous 1999 shooting could be re-investigated as part of federal probe into Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ past is back in the spotlight as a sweeping federal sex trafficking probe into the rapper is set to widen after agents raided his mansions in connection to the investigation.

The infamous Club New York shooting from 1999 and the sensational 2001 trial could possibly be re-investigated as part of the probe, two law enforcement officials told The New York Post.

In an explosive lawsuit from February that alleges Combs sexually assaulted music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones and forced him to have sex with sex workers, Mr Jones claimed Diddy was often “bragging about bribing witnesses, and jurors in the criminal case concerning the 1999 NYC nightclub shooting with Shyne”.

Diddy, his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, his bodyguard, Anthony “Wolf” Jones, and rapper Jamal “Shyne” Barrow, were arrested after the club shooting that injured three people.

Diddy’s chief of staff Kristina Khorram named in Lil Rod’s lawsuit against Diddy

Kristina Khorram, Diddy’s Chief of Staff, is named in Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones’ lawsuit against Diddy.

Among other things, the music producer accused Ms Khorram of requiring all of Diddy’s employees to carry drugs around his home, including cocaine, GHB, ecstasy and marijuana. He also claimed Ms Khorram “ordered sex workers, and prostitutes” for her boss.

Mr Jones also said the chief of staff “is the Ghislaine Maxwell to Sean Combs Jeffrey Epstein,” referring to the former British socialite currently being held in prison for twenty years after being convicted of child sex trafficking and other related charges.

The Independent has contacted Ms Khorram for comment.

Music industry giants named in recent lawsuit against Diddy

Rodney Jones named both Universal Music Group (UMG) CEO Lucian Graine and Ethiopia Habtemariam, former CEO of Motown Records — owned by UMG — in his February lawsuit against Diddy.

Mr Graine and Ms Habtemariam, along with their music labels and others, “are 100% liable for the actions of Sean Combs,” Mr Jones claimed in his lawsuit. The producer said Diddy would threaten him with isolation from the music industry, using his connections with these CEOs as leverage.

The lawsuit states Diddy and his associates used “threats of isolation from the music and entertainment industry: parading powerful music industry executives such as Defendants Lucian Charles Grainge, Ethiopia Habtemariam at his parties filled with sex workers, minors, and illegal drugs, such as ecstasy, cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, and mushrooms.”

Earlier this week, Ms Habtemariam said she would be willing to testify about the contact Mr Jones signed to produce Diddy’s “The Love Album.” Meanwhile, Mr Grainge’s lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

“A license to practice law is a privilege,” Donald Zakarin, the attorney who represents UMG and Grainge, wrote per Billboard. “Mr. Blackburn, plaintiff’s lawyer, has misused that license to self-promote, gratuitously, falsely and recklessly accusing the UMG defendants of criminal behavior.”
