A recent Rolling Stone report details horrifying accusations of abuse during Sean “Diddy” Combs's time at Howard University. The report is the culmination of a six-month investigation into Combs and includes interviews with over 50 people. Combs attended Howard, starting in the Fall of 1987, until his sophomore year when he dropped out to pursue his music career.

Rolling Stone details that Combs was known for his parties, often called “once-in-a-lifetime” but also for flashes of rage and unwanted touching. The report initially describes Combs standing outside the Harriet Tubman Quadrangle dorm at the institution, where he began yelling in a “belligerent” manner for his then-girlfriend to join him outside, as claimed by a classmate. Per comments obtained by an unnamed witness, Combs started to attack her using a belt. Witness to the incident told Rolling Stone that he was angry and screaming at the top of his lungs.

Combs's purported behavior instigated fear and anxiety among the female residents in the dormitories.

“She was trying to defend herself a little bit. She was crying. And we were telling him, ‘Get off of her.’ We were screaming for her,” a witness told Rolling Stone.

When Rolling Stone reached out to Combs's lawyer Johnathan Davis for comment, he said, “Mr. Combs cannot comment on settled litigation, will not comment on pending litigation, and cannot address every allegation picked up by the press from any source, no matter how unreliable. We are aware that the proper authorities are conducting a thorough investigation and therefore have confidence any important issues will be addressed in the proper forum, where the rules distinguish facts from fiction.”

The report also describes instances of inappropriate behavior by Combs towards female students, including tapping on windows to disrupt classes, unwelcome physical contact, and displays of anger towards students who questioned him. The extensive Rolling Stone investigative piece comes after multiple allegations of abuse and sexual misconduct against Combs. CNN reports federal investigators are getting ready to present accusers of music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs to a federal grand jury.

Surveillance video from the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles, obtained by CNN in mid-May, depicts an altercation between Combs and his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura in 2016. This incident corroborates her lawsuit, which was resolved last year. The footage shows Combs chasing Cassie through a hallway, confronting her in the elevator lobby, grabbing her by the neck, pushing her down, kicking her, taking her bags, and pulling her back by her sweatshirt. After returning her bags to the hotel room, Combs watches as Cassie attempts to use a hotel phone near the elevators. He later seems to push her into a corner and throws an object out of sight.

A new legal case was brought against Combs this month by Crystal McKinney, as reported by CBS News. The lawsuit was filed under the NYC Gender Motivated Violence Act, allowing victims of gender-based violence in the city to take legal action against their abusers, regardless of when the abuse took place. The deadline for filing claims under this law is 2025. In her lawsuit, McKinney alleged that Combs drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2003.
