There is no excuse for the extreme clearly show of pressure and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his little ones and staff members were being handled. Mr. Combs was by no means detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities. In spite of media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his relatives associates have been arrested nor has their ability to vacation been restricted in any way. This unparalleled ambush — paired with an innovative, coordinated media presence — sales opportunities to a untimely hurry to judgment of Mr. Combs and is absolutely nothing far more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits. There has been no getting of felony or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is harmless and will proceed to struggle just about every solitary day to apparent his identify.”

HSI agents flooded Diddy’s mansion in the Los Angeles community of Holmby Hills and collected evidence as component of the investigation. Combs’ sons, Justin and Christian “King” Combs, ended up handcuffed during the raid at their father’s home in Los Angeles.
