As Sean “Diddy” Combs faces legal scrutiny over several sexual assault lawsuits, including the recent raid of his property as part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation, another astonishing revelation is the grandeur of his disgraced mogul lifestyle, epitomized by his $40 million Los Angeles home boasting eight bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, and an underwater tunnel.

On March 25, the Department of Homeland Security, conducting an armed search as part of Homeland Security Investigations spanning three jurisdictions, inadvertently drew attention to Diddy’s mansion in the Holmby Hills neighborhood, which he acquired in 2014.

“Earlier today, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York executed law enforcement actions as part of an ongoing investigation, with assistance from HSI Los Angeles, HSI Miami, and our local law enforcement partners,” Homeland Security told Us magazine in a statement. “We will provide further information as it becomes available.”

Diddy’s frequent posts on social media offered fans a glimpse into the interior of his L.A. mansion, and certain exterior areas of his home. 

However, a top-down perspective of the mansion has been circulating on social media for some time after the raid, offering a more comprehensive view of the property beyond what was shared by Diddy himself.

The lavish California estate features extravagant amenities including an underwater swimming tunnel leading to a grotto, a 35-seat theater, gym, wine room, and a spa house with a steam room and beauty salon. With eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, along with a separate 3,000 square-foot guesthouse, The Los Angeles Times reported in 2014, the time the mansion was newly acquired.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Combs’ mansion is neighboring the Playboy mansion.

During the raid, which was linked to his growing sexual harassment and rape lawsuits, law enforcement seized boxes and bags containing potential evidence. Additionally, two of Diddy’s adult sons, Justin and King Combs, were home during the operation and got detained, TMZ reported.

While the spotlight primarily centered on the raid at his Los Angeles property, Diddy’s mansions on Star Island, were also subject to the raids, according to The Miami Herald. He owns a property located at 1 West Star Island in Miami Beach, formerly belonging to Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Additionally, according to Miami-Dade property records, he owns a residence at 2 West Star Island in Miami Beach, the Miami Herald reports.

One of these properties is where Diddy allegedly recruited sex workers, according to the lawsuit against him by music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones. Jones claims Diddy forced him to participate in illicit sexual activities, drug use, and dealing with sex workers at a Miami strip club.

In 2021, Diddy acquired the Estefan property for $35 million. Situated on 1.34 acres of land, the property boasts expansive waterfront views and luxurious amenities such as a private dock and 24-hour security. Designed by award-winning Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott, the architectural concepts pay homage to the property’s history while incorporating modern aesthetics, according to Realtors.

The other Miami mansion owned has been owned by Diddy since 2003.
