A series about Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and his family is no longer in development at Hulu following recent sexual assault allegations made against the rapper, our sister site Variety reports.
The show reportedly was in the early stages of development and would have been produced by James Corden’s Fulwell 73 production company.
TVLine has reached out to Hulu for comment.
Several women recently filed suit against the Bad Boy Entertainment founder. In November, Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura, who had a long-term relationship with Combs, claimed he raped and beat her. The suit was soon settled, with Combs’ lawyer issuing a statement that read in part: “Mr. Combs‘ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims.”
Days later, Joi Dickerson-Neal filed a complaint in New York Supreme Court alleging that Combs drugged and sexually assaulted her and created “revenge porn” that he also circulated. A spokesperson for Combs said, “These are fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute. This is nothing but a money grab.”
Next, a woman listed as Jane Doe claimed that Combs and singer Aaron Hall raped her in the early 1990s, and another Jane Doe alleged that Combs was one of a group of men who gave her drugs and alcohol and then gang-raped her in 2003 when she was 17.
“Enough is enough,” Combs wrote on Instagram in early December, saying that people were out to “assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy.” He called the allegations “sickening” and accused the women who’d come forward as only being interested in “a quick payday.”
He added: “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.”
