Entertainment mogul and entrepreneur, Sean “Diddy” Combs, has just stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt TV, a network he co-founded, following three lawsuits alleging sexual assault. According to Revolt’s social media post, the hip-hop boss had no “day-to-day role in the business.”
R&B singer Cassie accused Mr. Combs of abusing and raping her, but the two quickly settled the lawsuit. Subsequently, two more individuals made accusations. Declaring the most recent allegations to be “a money grab,” Mr. Combs, through a representative, has refuted the charges made.
It’s uncertain if Mr. Combs will rejoin as chairman despite having co-founded the website and music television network in 2013. The rapper was accused of rape and sex trafficking by musician Casandra “Cassie” Ventura in the first of the three cases.
According to a second lawsuit filed this week, Mr. Combs allegedly sexually assaulted Joi Dickerson-Neal, a psychology student, in 1991. He was accused by her of drugging her, abusing her sexually, and filming it.
According to the most recent lawsuit, plaintiff Jane Doe and her friend met Mr. Combs and singer-songwriter Aaron Hall in the 1990s when they went to an event in New York that was organized by a record company.
The lady claims that during the evening, the two men allegedly provided she and her friend with drinks. Later, the woman alleged that she was “coerced into having sex with [Mr] Combs” at Mr. Hall’s residence.
