Sean “Diddy” Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami were raided by Homeland Security on Monday in possible connection with an ongoing sex trafficking investigation.

Federal law enforcement agents were seen arriving to the rapper’s properties with guns drawn in the lavish Holmby Hills neighbourhood of LA and in Miami, as seen in video footage obtained by Fox 11.

In another video, captured by TMZ, federal agents could be seen swarming Diddy’s California property while multiple helicopters hovered from above.

According to the outlet, several people were seen being questioned outside Diddy’s home in handcuffs, with two men appearing to be Diddy’s sons Justin and King Combs. Their names have yet to be officially revealed, along with Diddy’s current whereabouts.

“Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners,” a rep for Homeland Security Investigations told TMZ. “We will provide further information as it becomes available.”

Page Six has reached out to Combs’ reps for comment.

The raid comes amid various lawsuits recently filed against the Bad Boy Records founder, including allegations of assault and human trafficking, all of which Diddy has denied.

In February, Combs was sued by former male employee Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones. He accused the hitmaker of sexual assault while working on his 2023 album The Love Album: Off the Grid.

The producer and videographer claimed the alleged abuse occurred repeatedly from September 2022 to November 2023, per TMZ.

Jones also alleged he was forced to perform inappropriate acts with sex workers at Combs’ request, claiming he once woke up drugged and in bed with his boss.

Combs’ lawyer, Shawn Holley, previously told Page Six that “Lil Rod is nothing more than a liar” seeking to “shamelessly” win the $US30 million lawsuit.

In November 2023, the rapper’s ex-girlfriend Casandra Ventura – famously known by her stage name Cassie – was the first to accuse Diddy of rape and abuse. Her case was swiftly settled in November 2023.

In light of Monday’s raids, her lawyer TK Name released the following statement to Page Six: “We will always support law enforcement when it seeks to prosecute those that have violated the law. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr. Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.”

Her case was swiftly settled in November 2023.
