Diddy has denied the allegations against him, with his attorney calling the raids "a witch hunt."

Insiders familiar with the situation told TMZ that Diddy and his team were in the dark about the strategically planned raids. As this outlet reported, the rap mogul's sons, Justin, 30, and King, 25, were detained and handcuffed after Homeland Security descended in LA, collecting potential evidence after searching through the property.

At that same time, Diddy broke cover at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport for a pre-planned trip with some of his other children for Spring Break.
