Diddy's lawyer implied the sourcing was "unreliable."

Diddy's lawyer, Jonathan Davis, has responded to the new allegations brought up in Rolling Stone's bombshell investigation into the Bad Boy mogul. In the piece, the outlet reports that Diddy allegedly once assaulted his college girlfriend at Howard University. In a statement Davis provided to the outlet after they reached out for comment, he implied the sourcing was "unreliable."

“Mr. Combs cannot comment on settled litigation, will not comment on pending litigation, and cannot address every allegation picked up by the press from any source, no matter how unreliable,” Davis told the outlet. “We are aware that the proper authorities are conducting a thorough investigation and therefore have confidence any important issues will be addressed in the proper forum, where the rules distinguish facts from fiction.”

At one point in the Rolling Stone piece, the outlet cites a friend of Diddy's college girlfriend who recalled a particularly disturbing incident. They claimed that Diddy showed up “belligerent” outside of their dorm and "screamed and hollered and acted a stone fool until she [the girlfriend] came downstairs." Once she did, the classmate claims Diddy used a belt to hit her “all over the place" and was “screaming at the top of his lungs.” The outlet sourced multiple alleged witnesses of the incident. Another Howard alumni remarked that they aren't surprised by Diddy's legacy ending in "disgrace," as the outlet puts it. “None of this was really a surprise for me,” they said. "You’re already an abuser [in college]. You were already feeling you had to have certain power over people.”
