Close confidants, associates, and family members of Sean "Diddy" Combs are being called into question amid the ongoing sex trafficking investigation into the music mogul. 

Since Diddy's past is now under the microscope, he has been the subject of many conspiracy theories.

This includes the mother of three of his seven children, Kim Porter, who passed away in 2018, at the age of 47.

Porter and Diddy have three children together---17-year-old twin daughters, Jessie James and D'Lila, and son, Christian Combs, 26.

"For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare," Combs said in a tweet at the time that included a video of him cuddling up to a pregnant Porter.

 "But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship," he said.

Attorney Ben Brafman said Combs "vehemently denies" the allegations, calling them "lies." The two reached a settlement 24 hours later.
