Diddy steps down as Revolt chairman, following sexual assault suits

American rapper and music executive, Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, has been asked to step down as Chairman of Revolt, a media company he co-founded in 2013.

This decision comes after sexual assault lawsuits against him by his ex girlfriend, Cassie.

In a statement posted on Tuesday on Instagram, the company said that the change was required to allow Revolt to concentrate on its purpose.

According to the statement:


“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt. While Mr Combs has previously had no operational role in the business, this decision helps to ensure that Revolt remains steadfastly focused on our mission to create meaningful content for the culture and amplify the voices of all Black people throughout this country and the African diaspora.
