American rapper Sean Combs, popularly known as Diddy, has lost yet another deal.

Hulu has opted to pull the plug on a planned reality show centered around Diddy and his family.

Although the exact timeline of Hulu’s decision remains undisclosed, it follows a series of disturbing allegations surrounding the renowned rapper and entrepreneur over the past month.

Accusations against Combs span a spectrum of serious offenses, including sexual assault, revenge porn, and rape.

One of the initial lawsuits emerged from Joi Dickerson-Neal, who contended that Combs assaulted her in 1991, causing severe and lasting harm.

Dickerson-Neal alleged she was drugged, sexually assaulted, and subjected to “revenge porn” disseminated by Combs, also known as “P. Diddy.”

Another lawsuit, filed by an unnamed woman identified as Jane Doe, claimed that Combs, along with musician Aaron Hall, raped her and a friend in 1990 or 1991, following an industry event.

Doe asserted that her non-filing friend was coerced into sex with Combs and Hall in a separate room.

The allegations surfaced due to the Adult Survivors Act in New York state, temporarily lifting limitations and allowing victims to come forward.

Despite Combs vehemently denying the allegations, labeling them as “made up” and “not credible,” his professional life has taken a hit.

He recently announced a temporary hiatus as chairman of Revolt, his cable television network, in the wake of the sexual abuse allegations.

Hulu’s decision to scrap the reality show featuring Combs and his family delivers another blow to the rapper’s public image. Already, some 18 businesses had severed ties with the rapper.
