Fans now understand why Sean “Diddy” Combs was captured on video pacing back and forth at a facility near a South Florida airport on March 25.

Not only were Combs’ palatial estates in Los Angeles and Miami raided by federal agents, but Rolling Stone also reports that federal agents intercepted Combs’ alleged drug mule before the crew could take a flight to the Caribbean.

Brendan Paul, 25, was arrested and charged with cocaine possession and possession of a controlled substance. Paul was taken into custody by Miami-Dade police on March 25 at Opa-Locka Airport. His bond was set at $2500 for each charge. 

Additionally, the South Florida officers confiscated Combs’ phones in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, which headed the armed raids on Combs’ homes in nearby South Beach and Beverly Hills. 

Paul’s arrest confirms what former producer Lil Rod alleged in his sexual assault lawsuit

What makes the arrest of Paul particularly troubling for Combs is that this confirms what former producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones stated in his lawsuit in February 2024 when he called Paul “a drug mule.” Lil Rod stated in the affidavit that Paul was frequently “acquir[ing] and distribut[ing] Mr. Combs drugs and guns.”

Additionally, officers stated in their reports on Monday that Paul had “the contraband inside his personal travel bags … [and] the suspected cocaine was located and tested.”

Jones’ lawsuit was the latest to accuse Combs of sexual assault, harassment and refusal to pay regarding Jones’ work on the Grammy-nominated The Love Album. 

“Members of the enterprise and their associates procured, transported and distributed ecstasy, cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, mushrooms and tuci by packing these substances in their carry-on luggage and going through TSA,” Jones’ lawsuit claims. 

Jones said in the lawsuit that he saw Paul transport the contraband in his baggage while “traveling between Los Angeles, Miami, Virginia, the Caribbean and London on three occasions in December 2022, April 2023 and November 2023,” Rolling Stone reports.
