Sean 'Diddy' Combs returns key to New York City

Sean “Diddy” Combs has made headlines once again, this time for returning his key to New York City after a request from Mayor Eric Adams. This decision came in response to the release of a video showing Combs attacking R&B singer Cassie. The mayor's office confirmed that Combs returned the key after Adams sent letters requesting its return.

In his letter to Combs, Mayor Adams expressed deep concern over the attack, stating that he strongly condemns such actions and stands in solidarity with survivors of domestic and gender-based violence. This incident has added to the controversy surrounding Combs, whose career has been marred by accusations of sexual abuse and a federal criminal sex-trafficking investigation.

The video, which aired on CNN, showed Combs assaulting Cassie in a hotel hallway in Los Angeles in 2016. Following the release of the video, Cassie filed a lawsuit against Combs, which was settled soon after it was filed. The incident has led to increased scrutiny on Combs, with Howard University rescinding an honorary degree and ending a scholarship program in his name.

Despite these controversies, Combs remains a prominent figure in the music industry, having founded Bad Boy Records and built a successful business empire. However, the recent events have raised questions about his character and behavior.
