Is P. Diddy in jail?

Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has faced a series of lawsuits alleging sexual and physical abuse of women and girls, some of whom were signed to his record label, Bad Boy Records. Diddy’s former producer, Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, also filed a suit with similar allegations. So, does this mean Diddy’s in jail?

The first Diddy suit was filed by Bad Boy Recording artist and Diddy’s ex-girlfriend, Casandra “Cassie” Ventura, which Diddy settled out of court, alleging physical and sexual abuse. The next suit was filed by  Joi Dickerson-Neal, who said that in the `90s, Combs drugged and sexually assaulted her, and allegedly taped the incident for “revenge porn.”

Another suit, meanwhile, was from an unnamed woman who alleged that Combs sexually assaulted her twice, once with another man present, and then Combs physically assaulted her, putting his hands around her neck until she passed out.

Lil Rod Jones filed the fourth and most recent litigation against the music megastar to date, accusing Diddy of drugging him, and of sexual assault. Combs has denied all accusations.

The lawsuits against Diddy are civil suits

To date, P. Diddy is not in jail for any of the suits mentioned. So far, Diddy has only faced civil suits, which, as opposed to a criminal lawsuit, don’t result in prison sentences. While litigating one of Combs’ suits, prosecutors may find ample evidence to bring criminal charges against Combs related to the civil suits and then prosecute Combs on those charges. And if Combs and his legal team were to violate court orders, that might also result in jail time.

Diddy’s ongoing legal problems are not the first faced by the mogul. In 2015, Variety reported that Combs was briefly behind bars for an alleged assault at a gym. Combs was released on bail, and the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office chose not to file charges.
