The Recording Academy is “evaluating” whether or not they will rescind Sean “Diddy” Combs’ 2024 Grammy nomination following his mounting sexual assault allegations.
The once revered music mogul received a nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album for his latest release, The Love Album: Off the Grid.
In an exclusive statement to Radar Online, the Recording Academy said, “We are taking this matter very seriously and we are in the process of evaluating it with the time and care that it deserves.”
Since receiving his Grammy nomination on November 9, 2023, Sean “Diddy” Combs has been hit with four different lawsuits accusing him of various crimes including sexual assault, sex trafficking, drugging and sexually assaulting women and a minor.
Cassie Ventura was the first woman to file an explosive lawsuit against the Bad Boy Records founder.
He settled her lawsuit the very next day.
In the weeks to follow, three more lawsuits have surfaced with accusations against Diddy dating as far back as 1990.
He 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.
Diddy vehemently denies the gang rape allegations against him.
He released the following statement via social media:
Enough is enough. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy.
Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged.
I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.
50 Cent is reportedly in the early stages of developing a documentary about Diddy and his mounting sexual assault allegations.
