Diddy’s Castle is Starting to Crack

Following Cassie’s sexual assault allegations against Diddy, the world renowned rapper, record producer and actor has stepped down from his position of Chairman at REVOLT and has ended a 7 year partnership with Capital Preparatory Schools.

Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Cassie began an onslaught of allegations against him after filing a lawsuit for sexual abuse, rape and trafficking. Since settling the lawsuit with Cassie for an undisclosed amount, two more women have stepped forward accusing Diddy of sexual abuse. The accusations came in just under the wire for the expiration of the Adult Survivors Act, permitting sexual assault victims to file a civil action suit within one-year despite any statute of limitations.

Despite the suit with Cassie being settled and no longer up for discussion, associations and partners of Diddy have begun to take steps away from the negative publicity. REVOLT, the Black music television company co-founded by Diddy, announced that the public icon would be stepping down from his role as Chairman of the company.

In a statement made yesterday morning, REVOLT told the public: “While Mr. Combs has previously no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps ensure that REVOLT remains steadfastly focused on our mission to create meaningful content for the culture and amplify the voices of all Black people throughout this country and the African diaspora. Our focus has always been one that reflects our commitment to the collective journey of REVOLT — one that is not driven by the individual, but by the shared efforts and values of our entire team on behalf of advancing, elevating, and championing our culture and that continues.”

Succumbing to the domino effect, Capital Preparatory Schools also announced the end of their partnership with Diddy after 7 years. After joining forces in 2016, Diddy played a large role in helping launch the Harlem location of the charter school. Since then he has continued to make donations, including a large $1 million donation to the Bronx charter school location in 2021.

Despite his assistance, the founder and head of schools for Capital Preparatory Schools Dr. Steve Perry announced the end of their partnership on the school’s website yesterday. Dr. Perry wrote: “Following a comprehensive evaluation, a decision has been made to end the partnership between Capital Preparatory Schools and Sean Combs. While this decision was not made lightly, we firmly believe it is in the best interest of our organization’s health and future.”

Only time will tell how many more organizations affiliated with Sean Combs will continue to step away. With the other two lawsuits were filed on Thanksgiving Day, it is yet to be seen whether Diddy will fight or settle these as well.
