Some companies appear to be distancing themselves from Sean “Diddy” Combs as the rapper continues to face sexual assault allegations.

In recent months, multiple women have come forward to share allegations of misconduct by the music mogul. One individual who filed a lawsuit was his ex-girlfriend Cassie. (The exes dated on and off from 2007 to 2018.)

In her November 2023 suit, the model accused the rapper of rape and repeated physical abuse that lasted nearly a decade. The pair agreed to settle one day later with Diddy’s lawyer pointing out that the decision “is in no way an admission of wrongdoing.”

Nearly six months later, CNN released video footage from 2016 that showed Diddy kicking and grabbing Cassie in a Los Angeles hotel. The musician took “full responsibility” for what was shown in the video saying he was “disgusted” by his behavior.

Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images Sean “Diddy” Combs and ex-girlfriend Cassie weathered many ups and downs during their romance before parting ways for good in 2018. While Cassie (real name Cassandra Ventura) has since married Alex Fine and become a mother, her relationship with Diddy hasn’t stopped making headlines. The New York Times reported in November 2023 […]

“It’s difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, sometimes you gotta do that,” he said without naming Cassie. “I was f—ked up. I mean, I hit rock bottom but I make no excuses.”

While Diddy is facing multiple civil lawsuits, he has not been charged with any crimes. In response to the CNN footage, the Los Angeles District Attorney previously said they would be unable to file charges as the conduct “would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted.”

Keep reading to see how the allegations have impacted Diddy’s businesses:

Capital Preparatory Harlem

The public, tuition-free charter school co-founded by Diddy cut ties with the rapper in November 2023. “Following a comprehensive evaluation, a decision has been made to end the partnership between Capital Preparatory Schools and Sean Combs,” co-founder and head of schools Dr. Steve Perry said in a statement via Vulture. “While this decision was not made lightly, we firmly believe it is in the best interest of our organization’s health and future.” The school provides children in grades 6-12 with a rigorous college preparatory education rooted in social justice.

Revolt TV

In November 2023, Rolling Stone reported that Diddy temporarily stepped down as chairman of Revolt, the TV network he co-founded, amidst a wave of sexual assault allegations. Nearly four months later, TMZ reported that Diddy sold off all of his shares in Revolt TV to an interested buyer for an undisclosed sum.

Empower Global

In December 2023, 18 brands confirmed to Rolling Stone that they had severed ties with Diddy’s online marketplace for Black-owned businesses after Cassie and other women came forward and accused the rapper of physical violence. One brand that stepped away was House of Takura.

“This decision was made on the day that Casandra Ventura filed her lawsuit,” founder Annette Njau told the publication. “We take the allegations against Mr. Combs very seriously and find such behavior abhorrent and intolerable. We believe in victims’ rights, and support victims in speaking their truth, even against the most powerful of people.”
