Representatives of Diddy’s issued a statement regarding the alleged altercation in which Diddy was involved yesterday, per REVOLT:
“The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate,” the statement says. “What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son. We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.”
