Diddy steps down as Chairman of REVOLT
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has stepped down from his role as chairman of REVOLT.
REVOLT currently houses several popular music podcasts, including Drink Champs and Yung Miami’s Caresha Please.
According to a news report from Billboard, the action comes in the wake of three sexual assault lawsuits filed against Combs in recent weeks. His representatives confirmed the news in a statement on Tuesday.
“While Mr Combs has previously had no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps 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,” the statement begins. “Our focus has always been one that reflects our commitment to the collective journey of REVOLT — one that is not driven by the individual, but by the shared efforts and values of our entire team on behalf of advancing, elevating, and championing our culture and that continues.”
According to the statement, the Black music television company aims to continue its mission of creating “meaningful content for the culture.”
Earlier this month, Cassie, Diddy’s ex-girlfriend, alleged that he abused her during their on-and-off relationship. But a day after filing the lawsuit against Combs, the two settled, outlining that they decided to resolve the matter privately and amicably.
“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,” Ventura said in a statement by her attorney, Douglas Wigdor. “I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.”
Combs responded, adding, “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.” No terms were disclosed and the release states that “the parties will have no further statements.”
Last week, Combs was accused of sexual abuse by two more women. Those came via incidents that allegedly happened in the 90s.
