Embattled American rapper and music mogul Sean Combs, widely known as Diddy, has resigned from his role as chairman of the media company Revolt TV. The announcement came through a statement posted on the company’s Instagram page on Tuesday, citing the necessity of the move to maintain Revolt’s commitment to its mission.

The statement clarified, “Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt. While Mr. Combs has previously had no operational 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.

Founded by Diddy and media executive Andy Schuon in 2013, Revolt aimed to spotlight hip-hop culture and elevate Black voices in the United States. However, recent times have seen Combs entangled in a series of legal challenges, including allegations of sexual assault.

In November, Combs’ former girlfriend, Casandra Ventura, filed a lawsuit accusing the rapper of physical and sexual abuse throughout their decade-long relationship. Subsequently, Joi Dickerson-Neal filed another suit alleging that Diddy had drugged and raped her in 1991. A third lawsuit, filed by a plaintiff identified as Jane Doe, claimed that Diddy and R&B artist Aaron Hall took turns sexually assaulting her and other women at the singer’s apartment in the early 1990s.

Diddy has vehemently denied all allegations, dismissing them as “fabricated claims” and mere attempts at “money grabs.”
