Money & Violence: A History Of Diddy’s Violent Past

Can’t stop, won’t stop. Sean “Diddy” Combs has been on top of the hip-hop game since the early days of Bad Boy Entertainment. While he has put plenty of credible work in the music industry, he’s managed to build up a rep for getting into physical confrontations over the years, too. The REVOLT executive has been involved in several incidents with fellow celebrities and fans alike that turned violent. If he was unable to lash out personally, he had his bodyguards handle the problem.

One major problem with Diddy’s lapses into rage is that most of them are made into public spectacles. This is probably because a majority of the incidents have happened in nightclubs. While Diddy’s earlier days were marred by the shooting at club New York in 1999, at least the audience didn’t have camera phones capturing videos of he and J. Lo trying to flee. However, that is the case for Diddy’s most recent violent outburst which occurred during Super Bowl weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona.

His mildly violent run-in with a fan is just the latest in a line of incidents going back to the tragedy at City College and the loss of his friend the Notorious B.I.G. He had no clue that a string of assaults would follow him over the next 15 years.
