Sean “Diddy” Combs isn’t letting bicoastal federal raids or a flood of lawsuits dampen his mood.

The embattled music mogul (or an underling) shared a defiant post on Instagram Friday, April 5, with a message about coming out victorious when dealing with police.

The post featured the music video for Diddy’s 1998 single “Victory,” recorded under his Puff Daddy moniker.

The futuristic video shows the Bad Boy Records founder running from SWAT officers, dodging helicopters and flames in a post-apocalyptic city in the year 3002.

The late Notorious B.I.G. raps “the feds hate me” as Diddy runs for cover.

A hedonistic party scene plays in the background as partygoers sip champagne and watch the police pursuit on a TV monitor.  At the end of the video, Diddy is cornered on the roof of a building, but leaps from the edge and runs away as the word “Victory” flashes on screen.

The music mogul captioned the post “Bad Boy for Life” and included a raised fist emoji.

Diddy’s followers filled the post with comments, with some questioning the wisdom of such a “bold” post, while others praised Diddy for the artistic nature of the video.

The mogul shared the post just two weeks after agents from the Department Homeland Security simultaneously raided his mansions in Los Angeles and Miami in connection with sex trafficking allegations.

During the raid on Diddy’s $40 million L.A. estate, heavily-armed agents escorted people out of the home in handcuffs, including the rapper’s sons Justin and Christian “King” Combs.

Diddy’s attorney Aaron Dyer accused the federal government of a “witch hunt” and criticized agents for “gross overuse of military-level force.”

The mogul is also at the center of civil lawsuits from four women and a male music producer alleging sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and other crimes — all filed since November 2023.

Diddy has denied all of the allegations.

Late Thursday, April 4, the rap mogul’s son Christian was accused of sexual assault in a new lawsuit filed in Los Angeles by Grace O’Marcaigh, an on-duty steward on a yacht Diddy chartered in December 2022.

The complaint describes O’Marcaigh as a European Caucasian female who has worked as a stewardess in the yachting industry since 2018.

O’Marcaigh was 25 at the time of the alleged assault. She said Christian, now 26, pressured her to drink tequila that she suspected “was spiked,” then allegedly assaulted her.

Per the 31-page lawsuit, the woman alleged Christian kissed her neck and face, groped her legs, breasts, anus, and vagina.

The suit said she complained to the ship’s captain, but the incident was not fully investigated. She alleged Diddy paid the captain as part of a “cover-up.” The lawsuit includes photos showing bruises on O’Marcaigh’s arm that she claims were caused by Christian. There’s also a transcript  from a recorded conversation she had with Christian on the yacht.

She is additionally suing Diddy for premises liability as the person who chartered the yacht and for allegedly aiding and abetting his son.

O’Marcaigh is represented by Tyrone A. Blackburn, the same attorney who filed a bombshell February lawsuit against Diddy on behalf of Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones — a producer on the rapper’s recently released The Love Album: Off the Grid.

Diddy’s attorney Aaron Dyer, who also represents Christian Combs, said the woman’s lawsuit is filled with “manufactured lies.”
