Diddy’s LA home surveillance footage SEIZED by federal agents amid sex trafficking probe – as lawsuit alleges rapper ‘paid Instagram model Jade Ramey stipend for sex work’

Homeland Security Investigations agents who raided Diddy’s home on Monday seized the surveillance footage of them entering his LA-area mansion amid allegations of sex trafficking, according to TMZ.

The federal agents also disabled the security system and seized the hard drive so that their entrance and search was not recorded, per the outlet.

The agents also already knew the layout of the home and disabled the system before they entered.

It has also been reported that Diddy also allegedly paid Instagram model Jade Ramey a ‘monthly stipend’ for sex work, according to Rodney ‘Lil Rod’ Jones – who updated his lawsuit against him, according to Page Six.

Jones amended his $30 million lawsuit to include the allegation that Diddy paid Ramey, as well as City Girls rapper Yung Miami and Daphne Joy – who shares a son with her 50 Cent – a monthly stipend for sex work, the outlet reported.

Jade’s bio on her Instagram page says she is a ‘certified wellness coach’ and an ‘ordained minister,’ with links that lead to her Only Fans page for ‘free exclusive content’ as well as her official website that has subscriptions, although she didn’t disclose details on the content.

DailyMail.com reached out to Diddy and Ramey for comment and have not yet heard back.

Two of Diddy's sons were detained as part of the raid. 'There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated,' attorney Aaron Dyer said

Diddy and Ramey were seen sharing a kiss in December 2022, days after he welcomed his seventh child Love with ex Dana Tran, per Page Six.

According to Jones’ amendments to his lawsuit against Diddy, the former producer alleges that a female accountant named Robin Greenhill issued payments on a monthly basis via a wire transfer, cash payment or funds transfer to the sex workers, per Page Six. 

Greenhill allegedly made sure the payments were completed to the sex workers, Jones alleged. 

Jones named Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge in the suit – claiming that he authorized UMG and Motown Records – to pay the women via the accountant Greenhill. 

The former producer also claims that Grainge ‘aided and abetted’ Diddy in his alleged sexual abuse, which Grainge and his lawyers call ‘offensively false,’ per Billboard.

Jones filed the lawsuit against Diddy last month, alleging that the rapper sexually abused and harassed him – including Grainge’s name and others.

Jones updated the complaint and filed for a second time – including the sex workers’ names as well as the accountant Greenhill.

Following Grainge’s lawyer Donald Zakarin rebuttal, which included him alleging that the claims were ‘invented’ by Jones’ lawyers.

Jones’ lawyer Tyrone Blackburn said ‘UMG should produce their financial records. Let’s see what the money was used for. Stop trying to escape liability,’ in a statement to Billboard.

The news comes  days after federal agents swept through Diddy’s Miami and LA mansions, busting safes and turning over pill bottles during a dramatic raid. Drawers were rifled through and electronic items seized in the search – though officers did not specify the reasons for the raids or whether they were directly connected to Combs.

Two officials told AP the raids were part of an ongoing sex-trafficking investigation. Photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com this week showed Combs’ Florida home similarly turned over as part of a sex trafficking probe – after multiple women brought lawsuits against Combs accusing him of abuse, while a man accused him of sexual misconduct.

Through his lawyer, 54-year-old Combs broke his silence Tuesday to claim he was the victim of a witch hunt. The rapper and entrepreneur, who has not been charged, stressed that he had neither been detained nor arrested. He denies the allegations made against him.

‘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,’ Diddy’s attorney Aaron Dyer said in the statement shared Tueday.

Diddy has been inactive with the station since ‘temporarily’ stepping down as Chairman last November, as reported by TMZ.

The outlet cited sources claiming the decision was ‘not to allow the accusations he’s facing distract from Revolt’s mission or success’.

Revolt was, at the time, celebrating its ten year anniversary, under the leadership of CEO Detavio Samuels and Chief Brand Officer Deon Graham.

Diddy was not involved in the day-to-day running of the company, TMZ reported, citing sources. 

The decision to step back in November came as the rapper faced his first allegations from numerous alleged victims, accusing him of sexual and physical abuse.

This week, Diddy’s homes were raided, pictures exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com showing several disheveled rooms, bedrooms turned over and drawers rifled through.

Upon walking toward the entrance, a massive gate was seen clearly broken and off its hinges with several holes in the door and breaks in the concrete.

Photos show multiple doorframes that appear to have been damaged and several bedrooms left a mess with everything from clothing and receipts lying around. 

Other video shows how thoroughly the mogul’s laptops and other devices have been gone through, before showing unsettled kitchen appliances. 

Everything from stuffed animals to pill bottles were seen strewn across the floor and on both sides of a bedroom. 

At one point, cameras showed several safes that had clearly been accessed by the feds, though not everything had been taken from them.

Officials did not specify the reasons for the raids or whether they were directly linked to Combs. Two officials told the AP that the raids were part of an ongoing sex-trafficking investigation.

They spoke on condition of anonymity and were not authorized to publicly discuss details of the investigation. 

A source also told NBC three women and a man had been interviewed by federal officials in Manhattan over allegations of sex trafficking, sexual assault, and the solicitation and distribution of illegal narcotics and firearms.

Interviews with three other subjects are also scheduled, the source claimed. 

A lawyer representing a woman accusing Diddy of rape in the 1990s said of the raid: ‘Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.’

Tyrone Blackburn, an attorney for accusers Rodney Jones Jr. and Liza Gardner, greeted the news in a statement to Rolling Stone.

‘It’s about damn time,’ Blackburn said. ‘Sometimes justice delayed is not justice denied, so long as justice ultimately arrives.’

Douglas Wigdor, an attorney for Cassie Ventura and another one of the Jane Does accusing Diddy, responded to the search in a statement to DailyMail.com.

‘We will always support law enforcement when it seeks to prosecute those that have violated the law. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr. Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.’ 

A source with knowledge of the situation told DailyMail.com Diddy was not at his Miami home when the raid occurred and he was at the airport when the it went down.

The rapper was on his way to the Caribbean for spring vacation with his two daughters. 

He was questioned by federal authorities at the Florida airport, but was not detained or arrested. 

No domestic or international travel restrictions has been placed on Diddy, according to the source. 

A source also confirmed to DailyMail.com that Diddy and his family were not on his plane when it flew from Florida to the Caribbean on Monday. 

They gathered evidence including a ‘number of’ electronic devices, ABC News reports. No criminal charges have been filed, and Diddy has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

Diddy’s sons King, 25, and Justin, 30, are still traumatized by the raid at the Holmby Hills mansion, the source revealed.

Federal agents allegedly pointed their weapons and lasers directly on Justin and King, who were partially clothed as they were placed in handcuffs and questioned at the property, the source said.

Aaron Dyer, an attorney for the rapper, broke Combs’ silence just over 24 hours after the Homeland Security investigation with a statement to DailyMail.com. 

‘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,’ Dyer said.

‘Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities,’ he added.

‘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.’ 

Combs was seen speaking to customs agents at an airport 15 minutes from his Miami Beach Monday evening but never arrested.

‘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,’ Dyer continued.

‘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.’

There was no immediate official confirmation about what precipitated the raids, but Diddy is currently embroiled in several lawsuits accusing him of sexual assault.

Four women, including Diddy’s long-term girlfriend, filed shocking lawsuits against the rapper late last year, accusing him of abuse and sexual assault.

The rapper, who earned a fortune through music as producer and artist with the Bad Boy Entertainment record label, was accused of rape, sex-trafficking a minor, assault and a slew of additional alleged abuses.

Ex girlfriend Cassie Ventura accused him of rape and forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes in front of him. She also accused him of repeated physical abuses.

Combs denied the allegations and settled the suit.

In November, Joi Dickerson-Neal accused Combs of drugging and raping her in 1991, recording the abuse and sharing it without permission.

Liza Gardner then filed a third suit in late November 2023, also accusing him of sexual and physical abuse.

According to a lawsuit obtained by AP, the alleged incidents also occurred in the early 1990s.

Gardner said she was coerced into having sex and then pinned down by R&B singer Aaron Hall and forced to have sex with him too.

Her friend was also allegedly coerced into having sex with Combs and Hall.

The suit alleged Combs later went to the women’s home to discourage them from reporting what happened.

Combs then allegedly choked one of the women until she passed out.

In a shocking fourth suit, reported first in early December, Combs was accused of assaulting an anonymous fourth victim when she was a 17-year-old high school student in 2003.

The woman was allegedly ‘sex trafficked’ and ‘gang raped’ by Combs, who was 34 at the time, and Harve Pierre, then-president of his record label.

In harrowing detail, she described in her suit how Combs allegedly demanded that she pinch his nipples throughout the attack to help him ‘get off,’ before pulling up a chair to watch her being raped and choked by his associates.

She says she suffered in silence for 20 years until the R&B singer Cassie sued Combs, her former mentor and ex-boyfriend, for allegedly subjecting her to savage beatings, drug-addled hotel orgies and rape. 

Music producer Rodney ‘Lil Rod’ Jones Jr., who worked with Combs on ‘The Love Album: Off the Grid,’ is also among his accusers.

He filed a lawsuit against the rapper claiming he was ordered to recruit sex workers and have sex with them for the star’s pleasure, and has hundreds of hours of video documenting Combs’s ‘serious illegal activity’.

Record producer Rodney ‘Lil Rod’ Jones’ filed a bombshell lawsuit against Diddy and claimed that his ‘affiliation’ to Prince Harry and other stars gave him and his associates ‘legitimacy’, MailOnline revealed this week.

The court documents filed in the US last month do not suggest any wrongdoing on Prince Harry’s part. He is not a defendant and is named once in the 73-page document. MailOnline has asked the Duke of Sussex to comment.

Lil Rod’s lawyers claim guests were drawn to Diddy’s alleged sex-trafficking parties because of his ‘access to celebrities such as famous athletes, political figures, artists, musicians, and international dignitaries like British Royal, Prince Harry’, court documents filed in New York say. 

Prince William and Prince Harry met P Diddy and Kanye West at a post-concert party the Princes hosted to thank all who took part in the ‘Concert for Diana’ at Wembley Stadium’ in 2007. However, the Prince of Wales is not named in the court documents. It is not known how many times Harry has met the rapper since then, if at all. 

The woman accused Diddy of gang raping her with two other men when she was only 17 in 2003 after plying her with drugs and alcohol. He has denied the claim; she is pictured sitting with him in photos she claims were taken on the night of the alleged assault

Combs responded to the litany of allegations against him in a statement published on Instagram.

He said: ‘Enough is enough. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. 

‘Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. 

‘Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.’

Combs is among the most influential hip-hop producers and executives of the past three decades.

Formerly known as Puff Daddy, he built one of hip-hop’s biggest empires, blazing a trail with several entities attached to his famous name.

His label launched the career of the Notorious B.I.G. before signing artists like French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly and Janelle Monae in the 2000s. 

The former altar boy had a tough start in life where his drug dealer father was shot dead when he was a toddler.

But by age 12, the rap mogul was already making $1,000 a week on his paper round, working in a diner, gas station and cleaning toilets to make ends meet.

‘I would reach out to the boys about to go to college,’ he said of his upbringing. ‘I asked if I could do their round and send them half the money. I was making $1,000 a week as I kept all the other rounds on.

‘I was a busboy in a restaurant, I pumped gas at a gas station, I also had to keep the bathrooms clean. They are the worst but I was proud to make them clean and see people’s faces when they came out’.

Affording her son a better life, his mother scraped together the money to move to upstate Mount Vermont and send Combs to a fee-paying, academic Catholic school.

Diddy’s big break came in the 1990s, when he got a job as an intern at Uptown Records. He was fired in 1993.

Undeterred, he went on to create Bad Boy Entertainment with Arista Records and brought on Notorious B.I.G.

Raking in cash, Diddy still pays $5,000 a day in royalties for sampling Sting’s iconic 1983 single ‘Every Breath You Take’ on his 1997 single, ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ – a tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G.

Combs started his clothing brand, Sean John, in 1998 and partnered with Macy’s in 2010 – he sold part of the brand in 2016 but then bought it back in 2022 for $7.5 million after the brand filed for bankruptcy.

The brand was making $450 million in sales in 2016.

Through his later success in music and entrepreneurship, Combs had accrued a staggering $1billion fortune by the time he turned 50.

Best known as Puff Daddy – he later insisted on being called P. Diddy, Diddy, Sean John, Swag and Sea.

He is still known as P. Diddy in the UK. 

The rapper has also made headlines for dating a number of high-profile partners over the years.

The rap bachelor’s most famous lover was Jennifer Lopez, who he was with at the height of his fame from 1999 until 2001 – once declaring her bottom will go down as the most beautiful in history – before quickly adding that her music would too. While he never married, Combs also dated Cameron Diaz and Naomi Campbell.
