Entertainment mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, has stepped down from his position as Chairman of REVOLT, amid several claims of sexual assault. 

News of his departure from the position was first released on Tuesday, November 28, via a statement on REVOLT’s official Instagram account.

“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt,” the message read in part. 

“While Mr. Combs has previously 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.”

Per a report by, Combs’ decision has been described as “temporary” and doesn’t appear to be a full resignation. 

Earlier this month, Combs’ ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura filed a lawsuit against the 54-year-old, alleging rape and years of sexual abuse during their relationship.

The lawsuit, which was filed on November 16, was settled out of court less than 24 hours later, with both parties issuing statements in the wake of the agreement.

According to Ventura, she has decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms on which she has some level of control.

Combs also reacted to the news of the settlement by saying “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best.”

According to Ben Brafman, lawyer to the founder of Bad Boy Records, Combs’ decision to settle is not an admission of guilt, as the New York native maintains his innocence. 

“Just so we are 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.”

Combs has meanwhile been sued by two other women who also accuse him of rape and sexual assault. 

Brafman has vehemently denied those allegations, framing them as an attempt to procure a payment from his client.

“These are fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute.”
