Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Blasts ‘Excessive,’ ‘Military-Level’ Homeland Security Raids as an ‘Unprecedented Ambush’ SuperNayr

Sean “Diddy” Combs addressed Monday’s Homeland Security raids on his homes in Los Angeles, New York and Miami for the first time on Tuesday, calling the “excessive,” “military-level” effort an “unprecedented ambush.”

In a statement to media from the music mogul’s defense lawyer Aaron Dyer, Combs and his team lambasted his several sexual assault lawsuits and Monday’s HSI investigation as “nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits.”

Read the full statement from Dyer below:

“Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences. There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated. Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities. Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way. This unprecedented ambush — paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence — leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits. There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”

Deadline first reported the news.
