Danity Kane Alum Aubrey O'Day Reacts to Feds Raiding Diddy's Homes

O'Day previously supported Diddy's ex-girlfriend Cassie when she sued the music mogul.

Former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day has weighed in on the recent raid conducted by Homeland Security at Sean "Diddy" Combs' residences in Miami and Los Angeles.

Federal law enforcement agents swarmed the GRAMMY-winning rapper's homes on Monday, prompting a flurry of reactions. O’Day took to Instagram Stories to share a headline detailing the raid, adding her commentary with a cryptic message: "What you sow, you shall reap."

The 40-year-old singer hoped this incident would empower victims of various injustices to speak out about their experiences. Her social media posts concluded with a video tribute to the late Tupac Shakur, suggesting that the drama surrounding Diddy was long overdue.

The raid captured on video showed federal agents descending upon Diddy’s properties with guns drawn and helicopters circling overhead. Among those seen being handcuffed were two individuals believed to be Diddy’s sons, Justin and Christian a/k/a

"Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York 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 rep for Homeland Security Investigations told ET. "We will provide further information as it becomes available."

Following the raid, Diddy was reportedly spotted pacing outside the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, with speculation that his private jet had landed in the Caribbean amid the unfolding events.

ET has reached out to Diddy's reps and attorneys for comment.

In September, O’Day said that her former mentor, Diddy, requested her to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) barring her from speaking negatively about him and his label, Bad Boy. 

O’Day said this in a YouTube video, where she also mentioned her refusal to sign the NDA and advised her fellow Danity Kane bandmates against signing it as well.

In an interview on @SOHTV channel, the host inquired about the timing of this request, to which O’Day responded, "I received it a few months ago when he initiated this." O’Day and her group, Danity Kane, collaborated with Bad Boy Records for six years, during which they produced two platinum albums.

Combs previously announced his intention to return rights to artists he had previously signed. O’Day commented on this development, highlighting that some artists are now receiving streaming royalties and regaining ownership of their song publishing rights. 

She emphasized the significance of this gesture, especially considering the minimal earnings from streaming services in the past.

Expressing solidarity with her group members, O’Day stated, "As someone who values unity among women, I immediately reached out to everyone in my group and advised against accepting this deal. I believe we can secure a show on Hulu right now."

In November, members of Danity Kane spoke out in support of Cassie amid her lawsuit accusing her ex-boyfriend, Diddy, of abuse, rape, and sex trafficking.

The girl group -- which included, at various times, O'Day, Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett, Dawn Richard, Aundrea Fimbres, and Shannon Bex --  was formed on Diddy's iteration of Making the Band in 2005 and later signed to the rapper and producer's Bad Boy Records. 

At the time of Cassie's lawsuit, O'Day shared her thoughts in a statement to ET, saying, "I am in full support of Cassie. It isn't easy to take on one of the most powerful people in this industry and be honest about your experience with them. I know what her heart is feeling right now, because I have done so as well. May her voice bring all the others to the table, so we can start having more transparent conversations about what is actually happening behind the scenes. There is a lot more to all of our stories!"

She also posted about the lawsuit multiple times on her Instagram Stories, writing, "Been trynna tell y'all for years" in reaction to Cassie's allegations.

Just one day after filing her lawsuit against Diddy, Cassie and her ex reached a settlement, ET confirmed.

In a statement to ET, Diddy said, "We have decided to resolve this matter amicably." He added, "I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love."

"Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing," said Diddy's attorney, Ben Brafman, in a statement to ET. "Mr. Combs' decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best."

Sources close to the situation told ET, "The decision to settle quickly and privately was largely influenced by considerations for Diddy's family."
