UPDATE: Diddy’s Alleged “Drug Mule” Was Arrested /Feds Search Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ Properties.


Diddy’s alleged “drug mule” was arrested at a Miami airport after federal agents raided the singer’s Florida and California homes.

Brendon Paul, 25, was arrested Monday at Opa Locka Airport after the feds intercepted Diddy’s plane.

He was booked on one count of possession of suspected cocaine and suspected marijuana candy, according to TMZ.

According to the affidavit, obtained by TMZ, 25-year-old Brendan Paul was booked on two separate drug charges after the feds intercepted Diddy’s plane at the Opa Locka Airport in Miami — namely, one count of possession of suspected cocaine and another of possession of suspected marijuana candy, both of which are felonies in Florida.

In the paperwork, officers claim that while they were working in conjunction with Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection personnel, they came across what they describe as the suspected drugs in Paul’s travel bags, which they say he claimed.

The cops go on to say that the suspected narcotics were tested, and found to be legit – leading to Paul’s arrest. He was booked into jail, but has since bailed out.

Paul was named in Rodney Jones’ explosive complaint against Diddy, which identified him as a close confidant of Diddy’s, and more importantly, as someone who allegedly handles Diddy’s drugs/guns. There are photos of Paul with Diddy, included in Rodney’s lawsuit.

There’s no evidence thus far that the drugs allegedly found on Paul were in any way connected to Diddy.


Two properties belonging to rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs’ in Los Angeles and Miami were searched Monday by federal Homeland Security Investigations agents and other law enforcement as part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation by federal authorities in New York, two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.

It’s not clear whether Combs was the target of the investigation. The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss details of the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

In a statement, Homeland Security Investigations said it “executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners.”

A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan declined to comment.

Messages to Combs’ lawyers and other representatives seeking comment were not immediately returned.

There have been several sexual assault lawsuits filed against Combs in recent months.

In February a music producer filed a lawsuit alleging Combs coerced him to solicit prostitutes and pressured him to have sex with them. Combs’ attorney Shawn Holley has said of those allegations that “we have overwhelming, indisputable proof that his claims are complete lies.” S: Associated Press
