Diddy Reportedly Not Invited To The Met Gala This Year As Source Says Industry Has ‘Distanced Itself From Him’

Diddy is reportedly not on the guest list for the Met Gala this year.

The disgraced music mogul, 54, is said to be getting blacklisted by heads of the fashion industry as he navigates alarming claims against him, ranging from drugging alleged victims to sexual assault and sex trafficking.

Insiders said Diddy, who has previously been a staple at the event sporting his Sean John line, will not be invited this time around.

One source noted,

 “Now he finds himself grappling not only with the preservation of his reputation, but also with the loss of his standing within an industry that has unequivocally distanced itself from him.”

Last year, Diddy famously walked the carpet with rapper Yung Miami, who he has been romantically linked to for about two years.

Only time will tell if he’ll actually be asked to attend. The event usually falls on the first Monday in May, so this year it will be on May 6.

Meanwhile, Yung Miami has become entangled in Diddy’s legal woes. Most recently, he was sued by producer Rodney Jones (a.k.a. Lil Rod), who alleged that Diddy and his entourage drugged and sexually assaulted him while he lived with Diddy to work on his latest project, The Love Album: Off the Grid.

He also name-dropped Yung Miami in court docs and claimed that she and influencer Daphne Joy, who shares a son with 50 Cent, were paid monthly as sex workers for DiddyRodney Jones went on to allege that Yung Miami transported “pink cocaine” for Diddy.

Last week, Homeland Security agents raided Diddy’s Los Angeles and Miami estates amid the claims against him. His attorney Aaron Dyer slammed the federal government’s move, which included helicopters and Diddy’s sons Justin Combs, 30, and Christian Combs, 26, being in handcuffs in the yard while his LA home was searched. Diddy was also stopped in Miami as he was preparing to go out of the country.

His attorney said,

“Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences. There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated.”

He added that Diddy was never detained and “spoke to and cooperated with authorities.”

The attorney concluded:

“This unprecedented ambush—paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence—leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits,” the lawyer alleged. “There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”

A Homeland Security officer later said in part,

“We are responding to concrete, detailed, explicit allegations. This is not random. We didn’t choose his name out of a hat. We had allegations that we’re following up on.”
