Sean “Diddy” Combs has elected to temporarily step aside as chairman of Revolt.
“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,” a statement posted to Combs’s Instagram page reads.
The decision to temporarily aside from his role as chairman arrives days after he was accused of offenses across three different civil lawsuits. On Thursday, November 16, Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura filed a civil lawsuit accusing Combs of sex trafficking, serial assault and rape. One week later, a woman by the name of Joi Dickerson-Neal filed a civil lawsuit accusing the Revolt founder of drugging and sexually assaulting her. Then, an unidentified woman filed a civil lawsuit accusing Combs and singer Aaron Hall of raping her in the early 1990s.
Combs settled a civil lawsuit with Ventura one day after the civil lawsuit was filed. However, he has denied the accusations levied against him in the subsequent civil lawsuits.
