Diddy Nominated for 3 BET Awards Amid Sex Charges

Despite facing sexual abuse allegations, Diddy has been nominated in three categories at the 2024 BET Awards. The first round of voting has placed Diddy’s name on the ballot in several categories, demonstrating his continued influence in the music industry.

Diddy’s recent work, “The Love Album: Off the Grid,” is up for Album of The Year, while his collaboration with Teyana Taylor, “Closer To God,” is being considered for Song of the Year.

Furthermore, his cameo in the music video for “Creepin,” a track by Metro Boomin featuring 21 Savage and The Weeknd, has earned him a BET nomination for Video of The Year.

The first round of voting is slated to end on Tuesday, May 7, with studios, record labels, and managers having the ability to submit nominations.

“The Love Album,” released on September 15, 2023, didn’t garner widespread acclaim but drew attention due to its star-studded guest list, including Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Mary J. Blige, Herb Alpert, John Legend, and Burna Boy.

However, the album’s release was overshadowed by legal issues. Just a week after receiving two Grammy Award nominations, Diddy, also known as Sean Combs, was hit with a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by ex-partner and label singer Cassie Ventura.

The album would later lose to SZA’s “SOS.”

The lawsuit with Ventura, which was quickly settled, marked the beginning of a series of legal troubles for Diddy.

He is currently facing multiple lawsuits, including one alleging that he, along with former Bad Boy Records president Harve Pierre and another man, transported a minor from Michigan to New Jersey and then to a New York studio where she was sexually assaulted.

In addition, Diddy’s residences in Miami and Los Angeles were raided by Homeland Security as part of a federal investigation into allegations of sexual trafficking involving Diddy and his son Christian, aged 26.

Representatives for Diddy have declined to comment on these matters.
