50 Cent sells new Diddy documentary to Netflix

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has recently revealed that Netflix has won a bidding war and will be the recipients of a docuseries he has put together on the rapper / business-mogul / alleged sex offender and child trafficker, Sean “Diddy” Combs. 

The series will be produced by Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Production Studios. The news of the series landing on Netflix was announced on the rappers Instagram account, as he wrote, “Ok guys we’re all making good television mines just happens to be the best!” He posted the caption alongside a split image of him and Diddy. “NETFLIX wins the bidding war, but if more victims keep coming out… I’m gonna need more episodes.” 

TMZ has reported that the series will look into the various allegations that currently stand against Diddy, a lot of which come from the explosive lawsuit against Ronnie “Lil Rod” Jones, which accused Diddy of sexual assault, rape and sex trafficking. While there is no solid date in place for the series, TMZ has confirmed it will hit the streaming platform soon. 

The allegations from Lil Rod landed just a month after Diddy settled an ongoing case with his ex-partner and artist Cassie. Their case settled for an undisclosed amount merely one day after the lawsuit was filed. In it, she accused Diddy of multiple accounts of rape and sexual assault. 

Diddy has also come under fire very recently after a video of him attacking Cassie surfaced online. In response, he posted a video of himself apologising, referencing the period of the attack as some of “The darkest times” in his life. He said, “I was fucked up – I hit rock bottom – but I make no excuses… My behaviour on that video is inexcusable.” 

A further sexual assault allegation was made against Diddy earlier in the week as ex-model Crystal McKinney claimed that he forced her to perform oral sex on him after a meal during Men’s Fashion Week in 2003. These are all similar scenarios to those detailed in Lil Rod’s lawsuit from November. 

Jackson teased the docuseries several months ago when the first complaints against the rapper started coming in. The two of them have a history dating back to 2006, when on his track ‘The Bomb’, Jackson stated that Diddy knew the identity of the person who killed The Notorious B.I.G. 

Details surrounding the release date of the Diddy docuseries will soon follow.
