Diddy Reportedly Returns Key To New York City Upon Request Less Than A Year After Receiving It

It’s been less than a month since New York City Mayor Eric Adams spoke on the resurfaced video of Sean Combs attacking Cassie in 2016. In his initial comment, Adams revealed there were committee talks of rescinding Diddy’s Key to the City.

A new report by TMZ claims the selection committee DID vote to snatch back the Key, and Combs has complied.

Details On NYC Taking Its Key Back From Diddy

As mentioned, the celebrity news outlet reports that Diddy received letters about the Key at his Los Angeles and New York offices. A source told TMZ that New York City issued the letters on June 4, and Combs responded by returning the Key on June 10. The letters, signed by Mayor Adams, had reportedly included instructions on returning the Key.

Additionally, the letters affirmed that the Key to the City of New York committee “recommended nullifying and rescinding” Diddy’s honor and Mayor Adams accepted the recommendation.

“Like many people, I was deeply disturbed by recent footage of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs assaulting his then partner. I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence. Our city has worked tirelessly to make sure survivors are heard and seen by our administration,” Adams wrote.

The city has also updated an online log listing all the Key recipients. Combs’ name is still in the log, but there’s now a note about the Key being revoked this month.

What Led Up To Sean Combs Losing His Hometown Key

As previously reported, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was all smiles when Mayor Adams made a massive show of awarding him the honor in Times Square last September.

Several months later, in mid-May, CNN exclusively released hotel surveillance footage of the music mogul dragging, kicking, and throwing a glass vase at his ex-girlfriend. He later apologized in a video statement, ensuring not to name-drop Cassie due to alleged lawsuit settlement terms.

A slew of celebrity and social media reactions hit the internet before Cassie finally broke her silence. She revealed that she’s “better today” but “will always be recovering from [her] past.”

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has already said they have no plans of prosecuting Combs for the 2016 assault. However, recent reports suggest that a grand jury COULD be in the works, with the possibility of several of the producer’s alleged sexual misconduct victims taking the stand. Since settling Cassie’s lawsuit, multiple women and a former male employee have also sued Diddy on similar assault and abuse allegations.

The Key to the City isn’t the only honor Combs has recently lost. Howard University recently revoked his 2014 honorary degree.
