Federal agents conducted raids on properties associated with rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs on Monday, 25th January, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

These “law enforcement actions” were part of an ongoing investigation conducted in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami.

Two properties in Los Angeles and Miami were searched as part of this probe. However, officials did not disclose the specific reasons for the raids or whether they were linked to Mr. Combs.

Representatives for the hip-hop mogul did not provide comments to the BBC’s inquiries on Monday.

It’s worth noting that several recent lawsuits have accused Mr. Combs of sexual misconduct, although his attorneys have previously refuted all allegations made against him in these lawsuits.

On Monday, Homeland Security Investigations agents were conducting their operations in the 17,000 square foot mansion where Mr Combs announced his latest album release last September.

The address of the house is associated with Mr Combs’ Bad Boy Films production company. Located in the wealthy Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills, the area is home to numerous celebrities and the Playboy Mansion.

Two law enforcement officials told the Associated Press that the raids were part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation.

The BBC has not independently confirmed this reporting.

Last year, R&B singer Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura, filed a lawsuit in New York federal court against Mr Combs, whom she had dated between 2005 and 2018.

In court documents, she alleged years of abuse at the hands of the rapper, though she later settled the lawsuit with him.

Two other women then came forward with their own lawsuits, accusing him of sexual abuse. A man also has come forward accusing Mr Combs of sexual misconduct.

Douglas Wigdor, lawyer for Ms Ventura and another alleged victim, said on Monday that his clients supported the law enforcement efforts.

“Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr Combs responsible for his depraved conduct,” Mr Wigdor said in a statement.

Mr Combs remains one of the most influential and significant hip-hop producers of the past several decades.

He is the founder of Bad Boy Records and is a three-time Grammy winner who has worked with A-list artists like Usher and Mary J Blige.
