Sean ‘Diddy‘ Combs’ was stopped for questioning at a private airport in Miami on Monday evening just as his California neighbors dished on his wild lifestyle after federal agents raided his mansions over alleged sex crimes.

The music mogul’s homes in Los Angeles and Miami was swarming earlier in the day with heavily-armed Homeland Security Investigations agents and other law enforcement officers. 

Diddy was nowhere to be seen until he appeared at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport at about 6pm local time.

The rapper, 54, was seen anxiously pacing around after he and his entourage was questioned by Customs agents, but remained a free man as of Monday evening.

Back at his California estate, DailyMail.com spoke to one of Diddy’s neighbors in Holmby Hills who was stunned but recalled the obvious signs of debauchery at the legendary hip hop mogul’s home.

Ryan Mendelsohn, who said he lives five minutes away, spoke about the absurd scenes he’d see late into the night, with scores of beautiful women being brought to the mansion.

‘I’ve seen black Suburbans, Uber drivers, private drivers between 1-3am – sometimes earlier, sometimes later – but I’ve seen girls get out of the car in swimsuits, swimwear and bathing suits sometimes,’ Mendelsohn said.

Diddy's  mansion in Holmby Hills - not far from Beverly Hills - was one of at least two properties raided by Homeland Security Investigations agents as part of an ongoing sex trafficking probe

He had long assumed it was just women attending an afterparty at a famous man’s house following a night of clubbing in Los Angeles. 

Although he’s never himself seen Diddy with the women, in the wake of the charges and the raid, he believes it takes on a more sinister tone.

Mendelsohn recalled a Saturday a month ago where there were suburbans ‘up and down the street dropping off people.’

He says that the neighborhood sees parties not just on the weekend but throughout the entire week. 

‘You come here in Beverly Hills on a Tuesday night, there’s a party going on from 2am to 5am,’ he added.

‘It’s not really unexpected but the outcomes of this parties turned out for the worse. It’s pretty serious, not respectful towards women and it’s good that they’re raising awareness for this cause.’

In a moment only Hollywood could produce, a ‘star tours’ bus rode by the mansion during Monday’s raids, with onlookers taking pictures and asking the hoards of assembled media for a scoop.

The legendary rapper, actor, producer and fashion mogul was questioned by Customs agents at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport just hours after the searches began at his properties in Holmby Hills and nearby Miami Beach, Florida. 

This followed suspicions that the mogul had fled the country when his private jet LoveAir LLC Gulfstream 5 was tracked flying to Antigua earlier Monday, following multiple flights up and down the state of California on Sunday evening.

He was not arrested and remains a free man, according to TMZ. A spokesperson for HSI Miami declined comment to DailyMail.com. 

Officials said the afternoon raids of Combs’ estates were connected to an investigation by federal authorities in New York. 

A police line was set up around the Los Angeles house in Diddy’s wealthy neighborhood near Beverly Hills, where at least two men were put in handcuffs. 

Los Angeles City News Service reported several people were detained outside the home but it was unclear whether any arrests were made. 

Armed agents from the Department of Homeland Security entered luxury properties on both East and West Coasts of the United States, with video footage showing helicopters circling overhead.

Footage showed officers going in and out of his property on Miami Beach’s Star Island, with agents seen carrying evidence out.

A command post was set up outside the house and agents were still entering and leaving hours after the search began. 

A spokesperson for Homeland Security Investigations told DailyMail.com in a statement Monday afternoon: ‘Earlier today, HSI New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners.’ 

The statement did not elaborate on the nature of the investigation. HSI has broad jurisdiction to investigate the illegal movement of people, goods, money, technology and contraband into, out of and throughout the United States, including sex trafficking. 

Combs´ attorney and other representatives have not responded to a request for comment. 

Although Diddy was embroiled in a high-profile business dispute for part of 2023, it was a case filed by his former girlfriend and R&B singer Cassie that opened the door to other claims of sexual violence. Combs has vehemently denied the allegations.

In November, Cassie, who’s real name is Cassandra Ventura, accused Combs of rape and repeated physical abuse.

The lawsuit alleged how he allegedly controlled and abused Cassie for over a decade – as well as plying her with drugs, beating her, and forcing her to have sex with multiple male prostitutes while he watched and recorded.

Just one day after being filed, the federal lawsuit was settled after they both released statements announcing they had reached an agreement and resolved.

No specific details on the terms of the settlement were revealed.

Douglas Wigdor, an attorney for Cassie – real name Cassandra 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.’

Less than a week after Cassie’s lawsuit was filed, Joi Dickerson-Neal claimed that Combs drugged and sexually assaulted her while she was a pyschology students at Syracuse University in January 1991 – alleging that he also filmed the attack.

She claims Diddy pressured her for a date, and then slipped something into her drink before taking her to an apartment, sexually assaulting her and filming it. Dickerson-Neal is seeking unspecified damages.

The same day as Dickerson-Neal’s lawsuit, another woman called Liza Gardner filed a second lawsuit claiming Combs and R&B singer Aaron Hall sexually assaulted her at Hall’s apartment in 1990 or 1991.

While at Hall’s apartment, Gardner was offered more drinks and was coerced into having sex with Combs,’ the lawsuit claims.

The investigation at the Miami Beach property went on into the evening hours. Diddy was first seen after the raids just 15 miles south at the Opa-Locka Airport

She also claimed in her suit that Diddy later visited her after the alleged rape and choked her over fears that her friend might tell his then-girlfriend about the sexual assault.

In a statement to DailyMail.com shared by his spokesperson, Combs vehemently denied the allegations listed in the lawsuit while describing it as a ‘money grab.’ 

Another alleged victim of Combs came forward in December 2023 to accuse the hip hop mogul and his entourage of brutally gang raping her when she was 17 years old. 

Diddy immediately sent out a tweet denying the accusation and saying the all allegations made against hm in recent days are from people ‘looking for a quick payday’.

The anonymous accuser, now in her late 30s, has backed her bombshell claims with a photo of herself sitting on the I’ll Be Missing You singer’s lap and goofing around in his Manhattan studio.

In harrowing detail, she describes how Combs demanded that she pinch his nipples throughout the attack to help him ‘get off’ – then pulled up a chair to watch her being raped and choked by his associates. 

Last month, the rapper filed an official legal challenge refuting the bombshell abuse accusations made by the alleged victim, who is now in her 30s. 

Diddy has filed a motion to have the woman’s case thrown out, and she will reportedly remain anonymous until the judge rules on that motion. 

It was unclear what precipitated the search but the raids were related to a New York sex trafficking investigation

Most recently, record producer Rodney ‘Lil Rod’ Jones claims Combs subjected him to a year of groping and ‘constant unsolicited touching of his anus’.

He says he was ordered to recruit prostitutes and have sex with them for the star’s pleasure, and has hundreds of hours of video documenting Combs’s ‘serious illegal activity‘. 

Jones has named some of the industry’s biggest names as co-defendants in the $30 million suit, claiming record boss Ethiopia Habtemariam dismissed Combs’s groping as ‘friendly horseplay’, and his way of ‘showing that he likes you’. 

‘Lil Rod is nothing more than a liar who filed a $30 billion lawsuit shamelessly looking for an undeserved payday,’ Diddy’s attorney Shawn Holley told TMZ when the accusations came out.

‘His reckless name-dropping about events that are pure fiction and simply did not happen is nothing more than a transparent attempt to garner headlines. 

Tyrone Blackburn, a lawyer for accusers Rodney Jones and Liza Gardner, told Rolling Stone: ‘It’s about damn time. Sometimes justice delayed is not justice denied, so long as justice ultimately arrives.’

It is not clear whether the search is related to any of the allegations raised in the lawsuits, the latest of which comes from the unidentified woman who claims Combs raped her when she was 17. 

After the flurry of subsequent allegations, Diddy tweeted out a new statement under the heading ‘Enough is enough.’

Just hours following the raid, Diddy was seen at an airport 15 minutes from one of his properties in Miami

Rolling Stone reported Monday that ‘four Jane Does and one John Doe’ have already been interviewed by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York ‘for a probe related to alleged sex trafficking, domestic violence and racketeering,’ with more scheduled. 

While social media has been enthralled with the investigation all day, fellow New York rap icon 50 Cent chose to troll Diddy upon seeing the news, as he often had amid Combs’ misfortunes.

‘S*** just got real,’ the rapper — whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III — wrote in his caption as he said the people handcuffed by officers were Diddy’s children. ‘The Fed‘s in all the cribs, d*** they got the kids in cuffs.’

Alongside another post, he wrote: ‘Now it’s not Diddy do it, it’s Diddy done. They don’t come like that unless they got a case.’

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. 

He is the founder of Bad Boy Records and a three-time Grammy winner who has worked with a slew of top-tier artists including Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, Usher, Lil Kim, Faith Evans and 112.

Combs created the fashion clothing line Sean John, launched the Revolt TV channel with a focus on music, and produced the reality show ‘Making the Band’ for MTV.

Lawsuits against him describe Combs as a violent man who used his celebrity to prey on and intimidate women.
