NEW YORK (NEWSnet/AP) — Sean “Diddy” Combs has returned his key to New York City, after a request from Mayor Eric Adams in response to the release of a video showing Combs attacking singer Cassie.

Adams sent letters to the musician's offices on June 4 requesting it be returned to city hall. The city received the key June 10, according to the mayor's office.

In his letter, Adams wrote he was “deeply disturbed” by the attack.

Adams awarded the key to Combs in 2023, coinciding with the release of a new album.

In May, CNN aired security video of Combs attacking Cassie in a hotel hallway in Los Angeles in 2016. Combs has said he is “truly sorry” for the attack on Cassie and said his actions were “inexcusable.”
