Diddy’s Partnership w/ Capital Preparatory Schools Has Ended Following Third Sexual Assault Lawsuit
Diddy is no longer affiliated with Capital Preparatory Schools.
Sean “Diddy” Combs has been cut out of another business venture seemingly due to the sexual assault allegations that have been brought against him in recent weeks. In 2016 the Bad Boy Records CEO spearheaded the opening of the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School. According to reports, a few years later he donated $1 million to help open doors for a Bronx location of the charter school. However, it seems the music mogul is no longer affiliated with CPS.
On Tuesday (Nov. 28), a statement from Dr. Steve Perry, who first launched Capital Preparatory Schools in 2005, revealed that Diddy’s partnership with the educational institution has abruptly come to an end.
“Following a comprehensive evaluation, a decision has been made to end the partnership between Capital Preparatory Schools and Sean Combs. While this decision was not made lightly, we firmly believe it is in the best interest of our organization’s health and future.”
You may recall that the Grammy Award winner was sued by his ex-girlfriend/R&B singer Cassie, full name Casandra Ventura, earlier this month. She accused him of heinous acts of violence and sexual abuse throughout their decade-long relationship. Though Diddy’s legal team vehemently denied all claims, the billionaire settled the lawsuit in a record-breaking 24 hours.
While it seemed that Diddy had put the scandal behind him with a swift settlement, Cassie’s allegations were seemingly just the tip of the iceberg. As we recently reported, two more women filed lawsuits against Diddy. One of the alleged victims claimed Diddy “raped and drugged” her in the 90s’. While his third accuser, who filed her suit under the pseudonym Jane Doe, said Diddy and singer Aaron Hall once took turns raping her.
All of the recent suits against Diddy were filed under the Adult Survivors Act, which amended state law to allow alleged victims of sexual offenses for which the statute of limitations lapsed to file civil suits for one year (from November 24, 2022, to November 24, 2023).
Capital Preparatory Schools isn’t the only entity that’s cut ties with Diddy amid his legal troubles. In addition to REVOLT announcing he’s stepped back as the company’s chairman, Macy’s has phased out Diddy’s Sean John apparel line and alcohol company Diageo filed legal documents to have the “Tell Me” artist removed as the face of DeLeón Tequila.
