Sean 'Diddy' Combs' homes raided by federal agents

Sean 'Diddy' Combs' homes have been raided by federal agents, and his sons have been handcuffed outside his Los Angeles property.

The raids happened at the rapper's LA and Miami properties at exactly the same time on Monday afternoon.

Diddy's sons Justin, 30, and King, 25, were seen outside the house wearing handcuffs.

Federal agents reportedly walked around the house with guns, questioning people, according to TMZ.

"Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners," confirmed a Homeland Security rep. "We will provide further information as it becomes available."

It's unknown what prompted the raid, but it's believed it was linked to the sex trafficking allegations brought against the 54-year-old.

In November last year, Diddy's ex-girlfriend Cassie accused him of rape and abuse during their relationship. He denied the allegations and the case was settled the following day.

He has since been slapped with four other sexual assault lawsuits, including the sex trafficking one, which was filed against him in February.

In December, he addressed the allegations in a statement on social media, writing, "For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy.

"Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth."
