Federal agents with guns drawn reportedly raided the mansions of Sean “Diddy” Combs in South Beach and Beverly Hills, Fox 11 Los Angeles and TMZ report on Monday, March 25, 2024.

Multiple people were led away from the mansion in Beverly Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles, and were “detained,” the news outlet reports. Another publication, TMZ, reports that two people in handcuffs appeared to be the sons of Diddy, King and Justin Combs. 

Though members of the Los Angeles Police Department were present and participated, TMZ reports that the Department of Homeland Security was in charge of the raids under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Justice.

“Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations 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. We will provide further information as it becomes available,” the federal department said in a released statement obtained Fox 11.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that this investigation and raid was borne out of the Southern District of New York. It “appears to be tied to sex trafficking allegations” that were levied in the explosive lawsuit filed by singer Casandra “Cassie” Ventura in 2023.

Agents on the scene at the locations on the East and West coasts reportedly confiscated cell phones, laptops, iPads, desktop computers, and other electronic devices.

Most pop culture fans are aware of the inflammatory civil lawsuit filed by Cassie, as well as separate lawsuits filed by a pair of former female employees of Bad Boy, and lastly one by a former male producer of Diddy’s.

Diddy, the toppled titan of hip-hop, has yet to publicly respond to the federal investigation and raid.
