Diddy Faces Multiple Assault Allegations: A Timeline of Events

In March 2024, we learned that two homes owned by Sean Combs, better known to music fans as Diddy, were raided as part of an ongoing human trafficking investigation, according to CNN. The raids were carried out simultaneously in Los Angeles and Miami on March 25.

Per CNN, it is unclear whether Combs himself was specifically targeted; a source told the outlet that they were unable to reveal more information given the sensitive nature of the investigation.

It’s a fast-moving story, but here is a timeline of everything we know so far about the Diddy assault allegations.

November 16, 2023: Singer Cassie Ventura files a lawsuit accusing Combs of physical and sexual abuse that lasted for years, according to the Associated Press (AP). The pair dated on and off for over a decade between 2007 and 2018.

Through his lawyer, Combs denies the accusations. After Ventura’s lawsuit went public, others came forward with similar lawsuits that also accused the music mogul of sexual assault.

November 17, 2023: Ventura and Combs settle their lawsuit, according to separate statements obtained by CNN. “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love,” Combs said, per the news outlet.

As for Ventura, she said, “I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support.”

The settlement amount was not disclosed.

November 18, 2023: One of Combs’ lawyers, Ben Brafman denies that settling the lawsuit equates to an “admission of wrongdoing” in a statement to CNN.

“A decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing,” Brafman says. “Mr. Combs‘ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”

December 6, 2023: A woman identified as Jane Doe in legal documents becomes the fourth person to accuse Diddy of sexual assault—specifically gang rape—as well as sex trafficking, per the AP. She alleges that in 2003, Harve Pierre, then president of Combs’s Bad Boy Records, flew her on a private jet from Detroit to New York, where Combs, Pierre, and a third man raped her when she was 17, a minor.

In a statement published on Instagram on December 6, Combs denies all accusations of sexual assault, writing, “Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family, and for the truth.”
