Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, the US rapper, has temporarily stepped aside from his role as chairman at Revolt, his TV network.
This was revealed in a statement via Revolt’s Instagram page on Tuesday.
The company said Diddy’s decision was to ensure that Revolt remains focused on its mission of creating meaningful content.
“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt,” the statement reads.
“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.”
Diddy’s move comes in the wake of several lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct against the rapper.
On November 17, Cassie, Diddy’s ex-girlfriend, filed a suit accusing him of rape, abuse, and human trafficking during their 10-year relationship.
The lawsuit was, however, settled out of court one day after it was filed.
Shortly after, a second suit was filed, alleging that the rapper sexually assaulted a college student in 1991.
An additional lawsuit filed against Diddy by an anonymous woman, named as Jane Doe, alleged that he and Aaron Hall, a US singer, took turns in raping her and her friends sometime between 1990 and 1991.
In response, the rapper denied all allegations, calling them “fabricated”.
Diddy founded Revolt with Andy Schuon in 2013.
The network is behind shows such as ‘Love & Respect With Killer Mike’, ‘Revolt Black News’, and ‘Sneakin’ in With Druski’.
