Key Points:

  • Rapper-turned-mogul 50 Cent’s production company sells Diddy sex abuse allegations docuseries to Netflix after a bidding war.
  • Four women have accused Diddy of sexual misconduct in six months, with lawsuits alleging rape, abuse, and sex trafficking. Diddy denies all claims.
  • Diddy faces lawsuits, reportedly nears $100 million in property debt, and sells Revolt TV amid investigations.

Renowned rapper and entrepreneur Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is expanding his media empire with a documentary series about the sexual abuse allegations against Sean “Diddy” Combs. 

G-Unit Film & Television, 50 Cent’s production company, confirmed Netflix secured the rights after a bidding war among streaming services. 50 Cent had been teasing the project since last year. The docuseries will delve into the accusations against Diddy.

“If more victims come forward,” 50 Cent said, “I’ll need more episodes.” The allegations against Diddy have grown in recent months. At least four women have accused him of rape, abuse, and sex trafficking in the past six months. Diddy has denied all claims.

Diddy’s legal woes mount with sexual misconduct claims

The first accusation came from his ex-girlfriend, R&B singer Casandra Ventura, in November. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed sum the next day. Sean “Diddy” Combs’ lawyer called the allegations “offensive” and accused Ventura of seeking financial gain.

However, CNN released a video last week showing Diddy shoving, kicking, and dragging Ventura by the hair in a hotel hallway in 2016.

Diddy later apologized for his “disgusting” behavior in a video statement. Three additional lawsuits followed, all denied by Diddy. Two allege he drugged the plaintiffs. In February, music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones filed a $30-million lawsuit, accusing Diddy of sexual harassment, drugging partygoers, and running a “sex-trafficking venture.”

Diddy sells Revolt TV, faces financial, legal issues

These developments coincided with reports in March that Diddy faced nearly $100 million in debt on luxury properties in Los Angeles and Miami. The disclosure followed federal raids by Homeland Security, reportedly linked to a sex trafficking investigation.

Reports indicate Diddy borrowed heavily to finance his real estate portfolio, with $100 million outstanding. In March, he sold his remaining shares in Revolt TV, a music-focused cable network, amid the investigations and allegations. He had stepped down as chairman in 2023. The buyer of Revolt TV remains anonymous, but current leadership will stay in place.
