Sean “Diddy” Combs has been forced to step down as the chairman of Revolt, a music oriented television network co-founded by him in 2013.
After sexual assault charges on Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs made headlines, the rapper stepped down from his role as the chairman of the company. This comes after Cassie Ventura, his ex of eleven years sued him for physical and sexual assault.
Moreover, he also faced a claim from Joi Dickerson-Neal for supposed drugging and rape. Also, one more charge was filed by Jane Doe for assault. Considering the three claims filed against him, he is stepping down as the Chairman of Revolt.
Revolt is a music-oriented digital cable television network which was co-founded by Diddy and Andy Schuon in 2013. The channel is dedicated to urban contemporary music. The original programming of the platform had initially also covered social issues faced by the African American community.
A statement was posted earlier on Revolt’s instagram page that announced Diddy’s stepdown. It read,
“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.”
This comes after Cassie Ventura’s lawsuit grabbed media attention. The case was resolved amicably a day after it was filed as they reached a settlement. However Diddy claimed that an amicable settlement did not suggest that he pleaded guilty to the charges. He shared this statement:
“We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best.” The attorney of the rap mogul, Ben Brafman claimed, “Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing. Mr. Combs’ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”
On the other hand Cassie Ventura shared,
“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.”
