Sean Combs “Diddy” Homes Raided!

( – Music mogul Sean Combs, aka “Diddy,” has a criminal history spanning back to 1999, when he entered a guilty plea to one count of harassment. Since then, the rapper and producer has been arrested for assault and weapons violations. He’s also faced numerous lawsuits for battery and sexual assault. Most recently, law enforcement officials raided two of his residences.

On March 25, media outlets exploded with the news that Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) officials raided Combs’s mansions on Miami’s famed Star Island and Los Angeles’ exclusive Holmby Hills neighborhood. The neighborhood is part of the city’s “Platinum Triangle,” which includes Bel Air and Beverly Hills.

News reports indicated that HSI officials executed search warrants on the properties on behalf of an ongoing investigation led by prosecutors assigned to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Law enforcement officials reportedly briefly detained two of Diddy’s sons as HSI officers searched his 17,000-square-foot Holmby Hills mansion.

Media outlets reported that HSI conducted the raids as part of a federal sex trafficking investigation. It remains unclear whether Combs is a target of that probe. The Los Angeles residence is owned by Combs’ Bad Boy Films company and one of the rapper’s daughters.

Combs’ lawyer, Aaron Dyer, released a statement to the media claiming HSI officials participated in a “gross overuse of military-level force” while executing the search warrants. He also complained about law enforcement officials’ “excessive show of force and hostility” during the raids.

Dyer explained that Combs spoke with authorities. He warned that HSI’s “unprecedented ambush,” coupled with a “coordinated media presence,” resulted in a “premature rush to judgment” of his client despite the fact that investigators haven’t issued a finding indicating any potential civil or criminal liability by the rapper.

An HSI spokesperson confirmed that investigators from New York “executed law enforcement actions” related to an “ongoing investigation.” That individual said local law enforcement officers assisted along with officials from HSI’s Miami and Los Angeles field offices.
