Diddy Returns Key , to NYC.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams presented the Key to the City to Sean "Diddy" Combs in September 2023.

Earlier this month, Mayor Adams asked the rapper to give it back after 2016 security footage of Combs assaulting his ex, Cassie, surfaced, NBC News reports.


The footage shows Combs chasing Cassie down a hotel hallway, grabbing her near the elevator, throwing her to the ground and kicking her twice.

He then proceeded to drag her on the ground by her sweatshirt.

In a letter addressed to Diddy, Adams asked for the Key to the City to be returned and said he "was deeply disturbed" by the footage, NBC News reports.

I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence, NYC Mayor Eric Adams, via letter to Diddy.

Our city has worked tirelessly to make sure survivors are heard and seen by our administration, NYC Mayor Eric Adams, via letter to Diddy.

Diddy has since honored the mayor's request and returned the key.

He also released a video apology, calling his "behavior" in the footage "inexcusable.".

Five lawsuits alleging "sexual assault, sexual trafficking" and "other criminal activity" have been filed against Diddy since November, NBC News reports.

Federal agents searched his properties and seized his phones in March after a warrant was issued by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York
