Prince Harry is one of the iconic names that came up in the latest sexual assault lawsuit brought by Diddy’s former male producer.


Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones asserted in the $30 million civil suit in February 2024 that a steady cavalcade of A-list celebrities and dignitaries sauntered through Diddy’s infamous parties during Jones’ short tenure at the record company. 


This news comes to light in the aftermath of the publicly damning raid by federal agents who descended on at least two of Diddy’s mansions in suburban Los Angeles and Miami on Monday, March 25, 2024.

According to reports by Page Six, Prince Harry has not been implicated by local or federal police in the expansive probe on Diddy. The 39-year-old Duke of Sussex has yet to respond to media inquiries regarding this matter.


Why the feds descended upon Diddy’s palatial estates

Media pundits theorize that the reported sex trafficking investigation on Sean “Diddy” Combs emanates from another sexual assault lawsuit filed by singer Casandra “Cassie” Ventura in late 2022. In the documents, Cassie accused the music mogul of a multiplicity of transgressions, including rape, prostitution, forced drug use, and chronic physical abuse during the decade-long relationship.

Neither the Department of Homeland Security, which handled the raids, nor the Department of Justice has remarked on the specificities of the investigations.

Diddy settled the Cassie lawsuit within 24 hours of Cassie’s filing, leading many pop culture observers to look askance at the Bad Boy boss, with some adding that the multimillion-dollar settlement gives credence to Cassie’s accusations.

Cassie speaks in the aftermath of the Diddy raid

Shortly after the feds tore through Diddy’s homes, Cassie called out Diddy’s “depraved conduct” through her attorney.

“We will always support law enforcement when it seeks to prosecute those that have violated the law,” Cassie’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, told Page Six. “Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr. Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.”

Diddy was spotted walking aimlessly in the proximity of the Miami International Airport on Monday while law enforcement searched then confiscated items at his palatial estates. They also took Diddy’s phones at the Miami airport. He has yet to make a public statement regarding the sensationalized raids.
