Capital Preparatory Schools has ended its partnership with Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Dr. Steve Perry, Founder and Head of Schools, released the following statement on Tuesday (November 28):
Following a comprehensive evaluation, a decision has been made to end the partnership between Capital Preparatory Schools and Sean Combs.
While this decision was not made lightly, we firmly believe it is in the best interest of our organization’s health and future.
The Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School opened in 2016 in partnership with Diddy and served 160 students in 6th and 7th grade.
In 2022, he famously visited the Capital Preparatory Bronx Charter School and made a $1 million donation.
The official statement regarding Sean Combs has been removed from Capital Preparatory Schools’ website.

But, they have also scrubbed Diddy’s name from the official website’s history page where it once stated the school opened in partnership with him.
The news of Diddy’s severed partnership with Capital Prep comes on the heels of Revolt announcing he has stepped down as Chairman of the company.
In the last two weeks, Diddy was hit with an explosive lawsuit by his former girlfriend, Cassie, where she accused him of sexual assault, physical abuse, and sex trafficking.
Diddy settled the lawsuit with Cassie a day later for an undisclosed amount.
Less than a week later, the 54-year-old was sued by Joi Dickerson-Neal, who claims he drugged and sexually assaulted her on camera in 1991.
Diddy was also sued by a Jane Doe who claims he and Aaron Hall of the R&B group Guy, sexually assaulted her and her friend in the early 90s.
An attorney for the Bad Boy Records founder addressed the lawsuits saying:
The claims involving alleged misconduct against Mr. Combs from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute are all completely denied and rejected by him. He recognizes this as a money grab. Because of Mr. Combs’ fame and success, he is an easy target for accusers who will falsify the truth, without conscience or consequence, for financial benefit.
