Raids on Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ homes were ‘unprecedented ambush’, lawyer says

Police raids on two properties owned by rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs were an “unprecedented ambush”, his lawyer has said.

Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami were searched by officers on Monday.

The searches were connected to a sex trafficking investigation by federal authorities in New York, US news outlets reported yesterday.

In a statement released on behalf of the rapper, his lawyer Aaron Dyer said: “Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr Combs’ residences.

“There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated.

“Mr Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities.

“Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way. This unprecedented ambush – paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence – leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits.

“There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”
