Sean Combs Returns “Key To The City Of New York” At Request Of Mayor


Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has returned his symbolic “Key to the City of New York,” after Mayor Eric Adams rescind the honor. The disgraced rap star and media mogul was originally presented with the key in a ceremony in Times Square back in September of 2023. “The bad boy of entertainment is getting the Key to the City from the bad boy of politics,” Adams joked at the time. Combs has received multiple sexual assault lawsuits and allegations recently, in addition to surveillance footage being aired of Combs physically assaulting his former girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, in 2016.

Adams sent Combs a letter requesting he return the key, saying he was “deeply disturbed” by the video. “I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence,” the letter reads. “After internal deliberations, the Key to the City of New York committee recommended nullifying and rescinding Mr. Combs’ key.” (CNN)
