As Sean 'Diddy' Combs faces a barrage of civil lawsuits and intense scrutiny following bombshell video depicting Cassie assault, public calls to remove his Hollywood Walk of Fame star are growing louder.

AceShowbiz - Recently, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has faced mounting pressure to remove P. Diddy's star from the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Diddy, who was honored with the 2,362nd star on May 2, 2008, is now embroiled in seven civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and other misdeeds, alongside a federal criminal investigation.

Despite these allegations, a Hollywood Chamber of Commerce spokesperson told TMZ that the organization is powerless to remove a star once it has been installed. The Chamber can nominate recipients, manufacture and install stars upon city approval, and conduct the Walk of Fame installation ceremony, but lacks the authority to remove them.

Diddy has firmly denied the allegations against him, stating that his accusers are driven by financial motivations. However, this assertion has been called into question following the release of a video showing him assaulting Cassie in a hotel hallway.

Initially apologizing for his action, Diddy later suggests the video leak is part of a larger agenda against him. According to a source close to Combs, he is particularly incensed by the video, claiming it does not portray the full context of the incident.

Cassie, who took to Instagram to address the situation, thanked her supporters and highlighted the enduring impact of domestic violence. She urged people to believe victims and offered her support to those still living in fear. "It broke me down to someone I never thought I would become. With a lot of hard work, I am better today, but I will always be recovering from my past," she wrote.

Calls for the removal of Walk of Fame stars are not unprecedented. Similar demands were made in the past regarding stars belonging to Bill Cosby and Donald Trump. However, despite recurring vandalism, their stars too have remained.

On the day of his star's unveiling, Diddy was lauded by actor Jamie Foxx, who praised his influence and threw a lavish party attended by close friends, family, and industry peers. "This is big. This is legendary," Foxx declared.

Ultimately, the controversy surrounding Diddy's star shines a light on the broader conversation about accountability and the permanence of public honors amid serious allegations.
