In the wake of three lawsuits alleging sexual assault, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has temporarily stepped aside as chairman of Revolt, the music-oriented television network he co-founded in 2013.
It was announced through Revolt’s Instagram page with a statement that 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.”

Earlier this month, R&B singer Cassie accused Combs of raping and beating her over the course of a decade.
Shortly after that, two separate lawsuits were filed against Diddy. In one, Joi Dickerson-Neal accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her, and filming the attack, in 1991.
A Jane Doe then accused Diddy and musician Aaron Hall of having taken turns raping her and her friends in the early 1990s.
Diddy ‘completely denied’ the allegations in a statement issued, noting that the claims were ‘from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute.’ The statement dismissed the suits ‘as a money grab.’
