Diddy Allegedly Threatened To Kill Vibe Editor Over Magazine Cover

Diddy has entered rarified air. The music mogul has been accused of so many horrific crimes that each seems more plausible than the last. Diddy has obviously displayed violent tendencies, as evidenced by the infamous Cassie video. That being said, the latest accusations made against him remain startling. Danyel Smith, the former editor of Vibe Magazine, wrote an essay detailing her experience with Diddy during a 1997 photo shoot. She alleged, among other things, that Diddy threatened to have her killed.

Smith’s essay was published July 12 in the New York Times Magazine. She recalled profiling Diddy for the cover story of the December 1997/January 1998 issue of Vibe, given her superstar status at the time. Diddy, however, turned the process into a nightmare. He demanded to see the front cover photo of the issue, which went against Vibe‘s policy. When Danyel Smith explained the policy, the Bad Boy founder turned to intimidation. He reportedly showed up at Smith’s office with his entourage. Smith was led to safety by security before a confrontation could take place.

Diddy Demanded To See The Cover Before Publication

Unfortunately, Diddy was not deterred. He allegedly called Danyel Smith the next day that if Smith did not give him an advance copy of the magazine, she would be dead. Smith recalls, specifically, being told that she would end up “dead in the trunk of a car” if she didn’t do as she was told. The editor demanded an apology, to which the rapper reportedly responded “f*ck you.” Soon after, the servers were stolen from the Vibe office. Smith believes that Diddy’s entourage were behind the server theft, but there was no evidence to link them. Fortunately, a backup copy of the issue was stored, and it was published as originally planned.

Diddy already had a history of strong-arming journalists by 1997. He’d been found guilty for threatening a New York Post photographer with a gun the year before. Danyel Smith was aware of the risks of a cover story, but he was so big at the time that the risk was deemed worthy. “[We] had to have him on the cover,” Smith recalled. Diddy’s representatives told New York Times Magazine that he would not comment on the former editor’s allegations.

Eminem Cleverly Shades Diddy On “Fuel” With JID

Eminem has always been someone who is never afraid to air things out on his albums, so it is no surprise he is doing it again on “Fuel”. This is one of 19 tracks off the Detroit MC’s highly-awaited 12th studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce). “Fuel” features the likes of Georgia MC JID, a collaboration that makes a lot of sense on paper. Both have elite pen games, and their flows are almost always engaging. Thankfully, the track really comes together in all phases, and it makes “Fuel” one of the major highlights.

So, what is Eminem getting into on this cut? Well, with him being one of the most intimidating figures in the genre, it is not wise to diss him. For example, the hip-hop community saw what happened to mgk after “Rap Devil”. It seems the hate gives Eminem extra juice to unleash on any competitor that tries to step to him, and its why naming this song “Fuel” is such a W. However, what also makes this track fun is that Eminem is playing the role of the instigator. He is coming for Diddy’s neck and does so in a clever manner. He starts of the series of bars with, “I’m like a R-A-P-E-R (Yeah) / Got so many S-As (S-As), S-As (Huh) / Wait, he didn’t just spell the word, “Rapper” and leave out a P, did he? (Yep)

It combines wit and humor to the nth degree, talking about Diddy’s longlist of sexual assault allegations. Then, Em continues to unleash on him by referencing how Diddy allegedly hired Keefe D to put out hits and two of rap’s legends. “R.I.P., rest in peace, Biggie / And Pac, both of y’all should be living (Yep) / But I ain’t tryna beef with him (Nope) / ‘Cause he might put a hit on me like Keefe D did him“. Overall, Em and JID split great verses over a glitchy and dark trap production and it’s one we highly recommend.

Quotable Lyrics:

Homie got a heart full of hate and a face full of war paint
Eyes all red, full of rage and it’s hard to escape from a dark place

Tryna sell a pound of the dog cage
All the OGs ’round town was our age
Danger, sex, and drugs, X and R rated

Insider Claims Diddy’s Mom Believes Her Son’s Legal Issue as Source of Recent Health Scare

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Rebrands Combs Enterprises to Combs Global as Business Portfolio Expands

Janice Combs, mother of music mogul Diddy, was rushed to a Miami hospital on Wednesday due to chest pains. According to TMZ, the cause of her discomfort is still unknown, and she will remain under medical observation and testing.

Diddy was present at the hospital when his mother was admitted, offering her comfort and support. An insider remarked, “He’s her comfort in this,” highlighting Diddy’s close bond with his mother during this health scare.

A source close to TMZ suggested that Janice Combs may have attributed her chest pains to the stress related to her son’s ongoing legal issues. Further details about her condition and the results of her medical tests are yet to be disclosed.

In yet another lawsuit last week, Diddy is accused of forcing a former porn star into sexual acts at his annual party in the Hamptons. According to Page Six, the former adult star, Adria English, says she was contracted as a “go-go dancer” after meeting Diddy with her boyfriend, who auditioned as a model for Sean Jean.

English, who went by the alias Omunique, was Anthony Gallo’s girlfriend, and he stated he would get the Sean John job if English worked for the Hamptons party. English noted at the first party that she was not forced to engage in sex, but in the years following, it changed.

At another party, she was informed to wear a black dress, which is believed to be a sign she was a “sex trafficked sex worker.” She stated she was forced to sleep with Jacob Arabov, known in the industry as Jacob the Jeweler.

“At the end of the night, Defendant Combs, personally congratulated Plaintiff for following his directives with Defendant Jacob and a job well done,” the lawsuit states.

English stated she went along with the request out of fear of her safety and her and her boyfriend’s future job options.

Additionally, English stated she was sexually assaulted at Diddy’s Miami parties. She eventually separated from Diddy in 2009 but was blackballed from future work opportunities.

The requested damages in the lawsuit are unspecified.

Diddy Accused Of Putting Bounty Out On 1999 NYC Nightclub Shooting Victim

Screenshot 2024 07 08 at 11.49.19 PM

According to a recent interview with Art Of Dialogue podcast, 1999 Club NY shooting victim Natania Reuben says that not only was Diddy the person who pulled the trigger and not Shyne, but Reuben contends that the Bad Boy mogul intended to hire a hitman to kill her.

Reuben suffered a gunshot wound to the face during the Club NY shooting in 1999 and won a $1.8 million settlement in a civil lawsuit against the music, fashion and spirits mogul. Former Bad Boy artist Jamal “Shyne” Barrow served eight years in prison for the shooting, however, Reuben asserts that Diddy was actually the one who pulled the trigger on that fateful night just days before the turn of the millennium.

In the most recent episode of The Art Of Dialogue, the shooting victim says that the troubled living legend put ahit out on her during the trial, which forced her to relocate.

“I was born in Brooklyn [and] I was raised in Brooklyn,” she said. “I had no intentions of leaving, and probably had this [not] happened, I probably would have never left, but when the District Attorney’s office gets information from one of their confidential informant sources saying that there’s a bag on my head, and I’m calling the District Attorney’s office and I’m calling everybody because I look out my window where I was living in Canarsie, Brooklyn and there’s four, stretched, blacked-out SUVs — I lived on the corner — there’s one on that corner, that corner, one in front of my house, one on the next corner.”

“What should I do? Sit there and wait for them to come get me or submit to the will of people who have my best interest and want to move me and my family to preserve my safety? […] I had businesses. Why would I pick up and just leave everything I knew but for the fact that my life depended on it?”

She also is adamant that even with her criticism of Diddy, it by no way is a claim that Shyne is innocent.

“I said on my TikTok, Shyne did not shoot me because he didn’t, but Shyne is a con artist,” Reuben said. “Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, we knew Shyne was innocent.’ No, you don’t know a damn thing because he’s far from innocent.”

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Under Federal Criminal Investigation

Sean "Diddy" Combs to Receive Global Icon Award and Perform at 2023 "VMAs"

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, the CEO of Bad Boy Entertainment, is under federal criminal investigation. Earlier this year, Homeland Security agents raided Diddy’s homes in Los Angeles and Miami. Now, insiders have confirmed that federal authorities in the Southern District of New York have notified Combs’ legal team about the ongoing investigation. Sources revealed that a federal grand jury is currently hearing evidence, although no charges appear imminent at this time. Both the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Combs’ lawyers have declined to comment on the situation.

CBS News reported that while Combs is a subject of the investigation, there is no indication that prosecutors are seeking an indictment from the grand jury. Legal experts note that being a subject of an investigation implies involvement within the scope of the inquiry, but does not necessarily mean charges will be brought against him.

The allegations continue to raise questions about whether Diddy will faces any criminal charges.

Diddy Is Being Sued Again, This Time By A Former Porn Star For Allegations Of Sex Trafficking

Sean “Diddy” Combs has been named in a slew of lawsuits claiming sexual impropriety by the music mogul, and it seems new allegations keep cropping up. Today, another lawsuit was reportedly filed by a woman — a former porn star — who says she was forced into prostitution at Diddy’s now-infamous “white parties,” according to TMZ.

Adria English, who went by Omunique, says that after meeting Diddy in 2004 while accompanying her then-boyfriend to a modeling audition for Diddy’s clothing brand, Sean Jean, they were both propositioned by Diddy, who she says told him he’d get the job in exchange for oral sex. While he refused, another Diddy associate supposedly offered him the job if he could convince Adria to work as a go-go dancer for one of Diddy’s parties.

After working a few more parties, where she says she was encouraged to drink laced beverages, she says Diddy paid her an extra $1,000 to have sex with Jacob Arabov — better known as Jacob The Jeweler. She says after this, she was “passed off” to other people at Diddy’s parties, with Diddy threatening to blackball her and her boyfriend from the industry if she didn’t comply — which he eventually did when she returned to California. She’s named event curator Tamiko Thomas as a co-defendant, saying she helped facilitate the alleged sex trafficking.

Diddy’s a defendant in a number of lawsuits, beginning with him being sued by Cassie for abuse late last year.

Shyne Criticized For Not Paying Off Settlement To 1999 Shooting Victim

Shyne’s career was permanently disrupted in 1999. The rapper and heir apparent to Biggie was arrested and sentenced to a decade in prison for shooting a woman named Natania Reuben. Shyne has continued to release music, but his legacy is defined by this incident. Calling it a complicated legacy, however, is an understatement. Reuben claims that Shyne did not actually shoot her, but won a settlement against the rapper for his involvement in the incident. A settlement that he’s apparently yet to pay.

Natania Reuben blasted Shyne during an interview on The Art of Dialogue. She not only called the rapper names, but declared that he still owed her money. “Shyne did not shoot me because he didn’t, but Shyne is a con artist,” she claimed. “Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, we know Shyne was innocent.’ No, you don’t know… Because he’s far from innocent.” The concept that Shyne is “innocent” is something the rapper has been quick to put forth after his release. He told Chanel 5 Belize that he took the fall for artists who were more powerful than him. Reuben dismissed this narrative as being the rapper’s attempt at political power in his native country.

Shyne Has Maintained His Innocence In The Shooting

“He’s going to jockey off of me,” the shooting victim asserted. “Saying Shyne didn’t shoot me to try to leverage himself to get that prime minister seat. You ain’t nothing but a penny Annie Shyer, a shady car salesman, a dressed-up fraud, a liar.” Worse, still, according to Reuben, the rapper has yet to make good on his financial responsibilities. The victim claimed that the rapper is driving a Maybach around Belize, yet has not paid her what she is owed. “You still owe me money,” Reuben added. “In the settlement, Shyne was responsible… He didn’t have the money to pay [then].”

Natania Reuben was paid $1.8M by Diddy, however, after the incident. It was a sizable amount, but it also prompted decades of alleged harassment against Reuben at the mogul’s behest. The victim claimed that Diddy flattened the tires on her vehicle on several occasions. “Not only did he pew pew me in the face,” she stated. “He also set off a course of harassment against me for the past 24 years.” Diddy has repeatedly denied these claims.
