Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Returns New York’s Key To The City Award Upon Mayor’s Request

The fallout from Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs assault on his former girlfriend and allegations of sexual misconduct from other women continues.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has revoked Combs’s key to NYC, informing him via a June 4 letter of the order. The item is given to “individuals whose service to the public and the common good rises to the highest level of achievement, and who act as a model for fellow and future New Yorkers,” according to

The key has since been been returned, according to Fabien Levy, deputy mayor for communications.

“I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence. Our city has worked tirelessly to make sure survivors are heard and seen by our administration,” Adams wrote in the letter.

The New York revocation is the latest honor stripped from Diddy after CNN surfaced surveillance video of Combs kicking R&B singer Cassie Ventura in 2016.

Last week, Howard University revoked Diddy’s honorary degree he received in 2014 and returned his $1 million donation.

The university said the video “is so fundamentally incompatible with Howard University’s core values and beliefs that he is deemed no longer worthy to hold the institution’s highest honor.”

Hulu also passed on a reality show that would have featured the family of Combs.
