Earlier today, Diddy's oldest son Justin Combs was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence. Police say they smelled alcohol in his vehicle during a routine traffic stop in the Beverly Hills area. This led them to give the 29-year-old various sobriety tests, which the LAPD says he failed. He was arrested and booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge. Police then took him to an L.A. County jail, where his bond was set at $5,000. It's unclear whether or not Combs remains in custody.

"Officers conducted a traffic stop, and they observed the driver possibly under the influence of unknown alcohol or drugs," one officer from the LAPD stated. He went on to claim, "The investigation revealed that he was under the influence."

Diddy, on the other hand, has been heavily promoting his new track with City Girls and Fabolous, "Act Bad." Last week, an associate of Swinderella accused Diddy of "jacking" the rapper's 2020 song to come up with the hit. She wrote on Twitter, “The industry will really send people to bite your whole entire swagg!” She continued, claiming Swinderella “DID ACT BAD 2 YEARS AGO." Her comment goes on to say, “The industry will be nothing without the underdogs,” and “SWINDY YOU’RE NEXT.” The up-and-coming rapper also chimed in to share her thoughts. “They keep telling me I need a hit whole time I got em and the billionaires stealing my whole sh*t,” she wrote.

Diddy's alcohol company also recently sued it's partner Diageo for allegedly neglecting the artist's brands Ciroc and DeLeon. His company also alleges that the neglect was rooted in racism. “Diageo has typecasted Ciroc and DeLeon, apparently deciding they are ‘Black brands’ that should be targeted only to ‘urban’ consumers," his legal team claims. Combs Wine and Spirits also later claimed they will be pursuing a separate lawsuit against Diageo, where they will seek “billions of dollars in damages due to Diageo’s neglect and breaches.”
