American rapper Sean Diddy Combs’ houses in LA and Miami have been raided by securities regarding a sex trafficking investigation.

According to TMZ, a representative for Homeland Security Investigations said “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.’’

According to the Associated Press, there was a police presence around Diddy’s Los Angeles residence located in the upscale Holmby Hills neighborhood near Beverly Hills. Helicopter footage from KABC-TV revealed Homeland Security Investigations agents wearing vests gathered in the backyard near the pool area. A command post was established outside the house, and agents were observed entering and exiting the premises for several hours as the search continued.

Diddy has been accused of sexual abuses in the past.

Cassandra Ventura had filed a law suit in November 2023, accusing Diddy of plying her with drugs and alcohol, forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes, and raping and beating her shortly after meeting her in 2005 until 2018.

Later in the same November, according to NBC, a woman named Joie Dickerson-Neal filed a suit against Combs alleging the music mogul drugged her, sexually assaulted her and recorded the assault without her knowledge when she was a college student in 1991.

In Febuary, Combs was enmeshed in a new legal battle as his former producer accused him of pressuring him, Meek Mill, and other artists into having gay sex with him in exchange for Grammy nominations and awards.
