Howard University severs connections with ‘Diddy’ Combs

On June 9th, it was reported that Howard University located in Washington, D.C., has ended its relationship with rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs. The university took back an honorary degree previously awarded to him and terminated a scholarship program named after him. The decision was made after a video surfaced, allegedly showing Diddy attacking R&B singer Cassie.

According to a statement released by the board of trustees, Mr. Combs’ conduct, as depicted in a video that has surfaced recently, goes against the fundamental principles and values of Howard University. Consequently, the board has decided that he is no longer deserving of the university’s topmost accolade.

According to Ventura’s lawsuit, the InterContinental Hotel in the Century City area of Los Angeles received a payment of $50,000 from Combs for the video. However, CNN was able to obtain images that appeared to be publicly available and showed a similar depiction.

The hip-hop star has been accused of physical and sexual violence in a series of public allegations. Recently, a new accusation has come to light, making it the latest addition to the list. The star has taken responsibility for his actions against Cassie and has issued an apology.

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, they are aware of the video, but no case has been presented to them. Unfortunately, even if a case were to be presented, the statute of limitations has already expired, meaning that no legal action could be taken.

On Friday, Howard University announced that they have accepted the return of the honorary degree awarded to Combs in 2014.

The Board has decided to strip the individual of all honors and privileges that come with the degree. As a result, his name will no longer be included in any records that list recipients of honorary degrees from Howard University. The statement reads, “This acceptance revokes all honors and privileges associated with the degree.”
