The Los Angeles and Miami homes of Sean “Diddy” Combs, a three-time Grammy award-winning rapper, was raided Monday by Department of Homeland Security officials.

According to Fox News, Homeland Security officials were also seen Monday at the famous rapper and producer’s home in Miami.

“Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (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,” Homeland Security Investigations said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We will provide further information as it becomes available.”

ABC 7 reported that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was also involved in Monday’s raid on the rapper’s Los Angeles home. Sources familiar with the investigation told ABC 7 that federal agents detained two men outside of the property during Monday’s search. According to ABC 7, the two men were later identified as the famous rapper’s sons.

A video posted on X, formerly Twitter, by Raws Alerts shows Homeland Security officials raiding Combs’ Los Angeles home.

An anonymous U.S. official told Fox News that the two raids on Combs’ homes were conducted as part of a federal human trafficking investigation; however, officials have not disclosed whether the raper is the target of Homeland Security’s investigation.

NBC News cited sources that claimed federal officials in Manhattan had interviewed three women and one man regarding allegations of sexual assault, sex trafficking, and the solicitation and distribution of illegal weapons and narcotics.

According to NBC News, Homeland Security officials seized phones from Combs in Miami prior to a trip the rapper had scheduled to the Bahamas. Law enforcement sources with knowledge of the warrant to search the rapper’s Miami home claimed that Combs was in the Miami region when officials conducted Monday’s raids.

Following news of Monday’s raids, the lawyer for the rapper’s ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, told Fox News, “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.”

Fox News reported that Ventura previously filed a lawsuit against Combs, claiming that the rapper subjected her to “over a decade” of “violent behavior and disturbed demands.” Ventura claimed that she was raped by Combs and forced to have sex with male prostitutes while being filmed by the rapper. Combs denied Ventura’s claims, and the rapper’s ex-girlfriend dropped the lawsuit after reportedly resolving the issue with Combs.

NBC News reported that three other women have launched lawsuits against the famous rapper in New York, claiming Combs sexually assaulted them.
