Justin Combs’ mother speaks out after Diddy’s L.A. home raid

Misa Hylton shared a video and a statement criticizing the “militarized force used” during last week’s law enforcement raid of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Los Angeles mansion.


Misa Hylton, the mother of Justin Combs and an ex-girlfriend of Sean “Diddy” Combs, posted a video and a statement on Instagram Tuesday criticizing the “militarized force used” during last week’s law enforcement raid of the music mogul’s Los Angeles mansion.

“The over zealous and overtly militarized force used against my sons Justin and Christian is deplorable,” Hylton wrote. “If these were the sons of a non-Black celebrity, they would not have been handled with the same aggression. The attempt to humiliate and terrorize these innocent young BLACK MEN is despicable!”

Sean Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami were raided by Homeland Security Investigations agents and other law enforcement officers as part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation, U.S. officials confirmed on March 25. 

Hylton’s video showed three armored vehicles arriving at the hip-hop mogul’s residence and at least a dozen heavily armed officers entering the home. One officer appears to turn a security camera toward the ground. 

In Hylton’s video, which appeared to have been edited to combine various angles of security camera footage, the officers are seen handcuffing Justin and his brother Christian “King” Combs, 26, while what looks like a drone flies around the residence.

“Enough is Enough!” Hylton wrote. “Did Justin need several laser beams from firearms pointed at his chest?? Did Christian need a gun pointed at the back of his head while he was handcuffed?? How many times have we seen young UNARMED BLACK MEN not make it out of these types of situations alive??”

Hylton said her son’s attorney is investigating to determine if the force used by law enforcement was excessive. “We will fight for justice utilizing every imaginable resource. I’m not with the propaganda!!!!” she wrote.
