Sean “Diddy” Combs is trying to sell his Los Angeles mansion for $70 million amid ongoing legal troubles, TMZ reports. The property, located in the exclusive Holmby Hills neighborhood, was purchased by Diddy in 2014 for $39 million.

In March, federal agents from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) conducted raids on Diddy's L.A. and Miami properties as part of an ongoing investigation related to sex trafficking allegations in two lawsuits. A representative for the agency confirmed the law enforcement actions, stating, "We will provide further information as it becomes available."

The mansion, a 17,000 sq. ft. European-inspired property, includes a 35-seat theater, a guest house, and a swimming pool with a grotto connected via an underground tunnel. Diddy took out two mortgages on the property, both for $25.35 million, one in 2014 and another in 2021, neither of which has been fully paid off. The former is due in 2029, and the latter in 2036.

Diddy is facing serious allegations, with six women accusing him of sexual assault in recent months. Surveillance footage from 2016 shows him grabbing, shoving, and kicking his ex-girlfriend Cassie, corroborating her allegations in a lawsuit settled last November. In response, Cassie expressed gratitude for the support she received and highlighted the impact of domestic violence.

Diddy's attorney, Jonathan Davis, issued a statement on July 3, denying the allegations: “No matter how many lawsuits are filed it won't change the fact that Mr. Combs has never sexually assaulted or sex trafficked anyone.” He emphasized the importance of the judicial process and expressed confidence that Diddy would prevail against the claims.

Amid public backlash, Diddy has returned accolades, including the key to the city of New York and an honorary degree from Howard University. On June 22, he deleted all posts from his Instagram page, including an apology video to Cassie.
