In the wake of a Homeland Security raid on rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs’ estates in Los Angeles and Miami, a list of celebrity names has been revealed in court filings for a lawsuit against Combs.

On that list is senior pastor of the Dallas-area megachurch The Potter’s House, Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Media outlet Newsweek listed the celebrities appearing alongside Bishop Jakes in the lawsuit:

  • Stevie J (Steven Aaron Jordan), a music producer and television personality
  • A redacted name of a Philadelphia rapper who dated Nicki Minaj
  • A Grammy Award-winning R&B singer who had trouble with law enforcement after assaulting a Bajan billionaire, whose name was also redacted
  • Yung Miami, who was not labeled as a celebrity in the filing
  • Prince Harry
  • Bishop T.D. Jakes
  • Cassie Ventura, a singer and dancer
  • Georgia Mass Choir
  • Donald Lawrence, songwriter and music producer
  • The Clark Sisters
  • Smokie Norful
  • Faheem Muhammad
  • DeForrest Taylor
  • Jose Cruz

Bishop Jakes has not currently been charged with any crimes and has categorically denied previous accusations made against him in regards to attendance at Diddy’s infamous parties.

It is reported that the raids are in response to a series of sex-trafficking allegations made against Combs, in addition to a recent string of lawsuits that allege the entrepreneur also committed sexual assault along with additional cases of trafficking.

As Charisma News previously reported, The Christian Post talked with Derrick Williams, executive vice president of T.D. Jakes Entertainment, who said:

Bishop Jakes was in LA for important business meetings, and we felt that a quick appearance at the former Chairman of Revolt’s birthday event was the respectful thing to do since Bishop Jakes’ sermons are aired on the Revolt Network.

We both greeted the family, Bishop Jakes recorded a brief celebratory birthday video and left immediately to take our other scheduled meetings. Any accusation to the contrary is wholly unsubstantiated, unverified and false.

Bishop Jakes will continue to break down barriers and find relevant ways to tell faith-based and value-based stories. This and only this continues to be our North Star.

The accusations against Jakes stemmed from “an unverified report that accused Jakes of being a frequent participant at sex parties hosted by music mogul Sean Combs, known as Diddy. However, a representative for Jakes has dismissed the claims as ‘unequivocally false and baseless.'”

Currently, there are no reports of Combs being arrested, and it is suspected that he fled the country shortly before the raids occurred in his private jet to an island in the Bahamas according to NBC News. It has not yet been confirmed if he was in fact on the jet when it left U.S. borders.

This is a developing story, and Charisma Media will provide updates as they are released.
