Diddy has decided to forgo attending the 2024 Grammys amidst the recent wave of sexual abuse allegations that have surfaced against him in recent months.
A representative for Diddy confirmed his absence from this year’s Grammy Awards, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The decision comes even as his latest studio album, The Love Album: Off the Grid, secures a nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album—marking his first solo nomination in two decades.
Throughout his illustrious career, Diddy has garnered 14 Grammy nominations and clinched three wins.
The news of his non-attendance follows a series of sexual assault accusations made by several women, leading to severed ties with various companies.
Hulu, for instance, cut its association with Diddy, canceling a series centered around the founder of Bad Boy Records and his seven children. In late November, after the first three allegations came to light, Diddy stepped down as chairman of his television network Revolt.
The first accuser to come forward was Cassie, who filed a lawsuit against Diddy, alleging emotional and sexual abuse over their 10-year relationship. The lawsuit was settled the next day, although Diddy vehemently denied any wrongdoing through his legal representation.
“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. 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,” Diddy said.
