‘It’s Diddy Over’: 50 Cent Teases Diddy Documentary, Mocks Rapper Amid Raids – National | Globalnews.ca

As US federal agents raided several properties owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs on Monday, rapper and longtime foe 50 Cent continued to mock Combs online by (re)proving a documentary about the allegations against him .

50 Cent (real name Curtis James Jackson III) first announced the upcoming documentary – produced by his company – in December and revealed the title. Did Diddy do it?

On Tuesday, Jackson shared what appears to be a poster for the documentary series. Alongside the announcement that the project was “coming soon”, Jackson promoted the work by writing that it would “break records when it drops”.

Jackson’s production company, G-Unit Films and Television, confirmed it was developing the documentary with a focus on the multiple lawsuits accusing Combs of rape and sexual assault. A company representative said proceeds from the documentary would benefit victims of sexual violence.

Jackson, 48, is executive producer of the docuseries.

Music and culture fans watched for months as Combs was repeatedly accused of sexual assault and rape in several different trials. (Combs has maintained his innocence and called the lawsuits a “smear” and an attempt to “get a quick payday.”)

The 54-year-old rapper’s legal troubles appeared to come to a head Monday when Homeland Security agents raided two properties owned by Combs in Los Angeles and Miami.

Two law enforcement sources told The Associated Press that the searches at Combs’ home were part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation by federal authorities in New York.

Combs’ attorney on Tuesday called the raids “an excessive use of military force as a search warrant,” in a statement to ET Online.

“There is no excuse for the excessive display of force and hostility shown by authorities or for the manner in which his children and employees were treated,” attorney Aaron Dyer said. “Mr. Combs was never arrested, but he spoke and cooperated with authorities.

Dyer said Combs and his sons were not arrested and their movements were not restricted in any way.

“This unprecedented ambush – coupled with an advanced and coordinated media presence – leads to a premature rush to judgment for Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on baseless accusations made in the framework of civil proceedings,” continued Dyer. “Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every day to clear his name.”

Combs has been at the center of five sexual assault lawsuits in as many months. The premiere saw R&B singer Cassie Ventura, Combs’ longtime partner, accuse the I’ll miss you rapper of repeated rapes and physical assaults for almost a decade.

In her lawsuit, Ventura, who was signed to Combs’ label, said the rapper “hit, beat, kicked and stomped” on her and forced her to have sex with prostitutes for that he was filming them.

The suit was settled the day after it was filed, although Combs’ attorney released a statement saying the settlement did not mean an admission of wrongdoing.

50 Cent mocks Diddy online

Since Monday’s raids, Jackson has continued to relentlessly mock Combs on several of his social media platforms.

On Instagram, Jackson’s trolling continued in numerous posts. He even took aim at Jay-Z, joking that the rival rapper and media mogul hasn’t been answering his phone since Homeland Security showed up at Combs’ door.

Since Jackson has been ridiculing Combs (and other rappers) online for years, it doesn’t seem like his memes about Combs’ legal troubles will stop anytime soon.
