Sean “Diddy” Combs Temporarily Steps Down as Chairman of Revolt Amid Sexual Assault Lawsuits

In the wake of three recent lawsuits alleging sexual assault, Sean “Diddy” Combs has made the decision to temporarily step aside from his role as chairman of Revolt, the music-oriented television network he co-founded in 2013. The move comes as a response to the serious legal allegations made against the hip-hop mogul.

A statement posted on Revolt’s Instagram page confirmed Combs’ decision and emphasized that he has not been involved in the operational or day-to-day aspects of the business. The statement reads, “Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt. While Mr. Combs has previously had no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps to 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.”

The recent legal challenges involve a lawsuit filed by R&B singer Cassie (Casandra Ventura), accusing Combs of raping and beating her over the course of a decade. A settlement between Ventura and Combs was reached just one day after the lawsuit was filed. Another lawsuit, filed by Joi Dickerson-Neal under the New York Adult Survivors Act, alleges that Combs drugged, sexually assaulted, and abused her, including creating and distributing “revenge porn.” Combs’ companies, Bad Boy Entertainment and Combs Enterprises, are also named as defendants in this case.

A spokesperson for Combs dismissed the allegations, stating, “These are fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute. This is nothing but a money grab.”

Combs, who started Revolt in 2013 with Andy Schuon, formed a distribution pact with Comcast Corporation. The network, known for its mission to shift the narrative for Black people globally, produces shows such as “Love & Respect With Killer Mike,” “Revolt Black News,” and “Sneakin’ in With Druski.”

The decision for Combs to step down as chairman of Revolt underscores the seriousness of the allegations he is facing, creating a significant development in both his personal and professional life.
