Sean Diddy Combs’ Alleged Drug Mule Brendan Paul Avoids Jail in Ohio

CLEVELAND (WJW) – A Northeast Ohio man accused of trafficking drugs for music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has accepted a plea deal to avoid prison.

“Brendan Paul accepted the prosecutor’s offer to allow him to enter the diversion program which, once completed, the case against him will be dismissed in its entirety,” according to Brian Bieber, Brendan Paul’s attorney.


Common conditions of diversion include completing education or counseling related to the position, counseling, performing community service and paying restitution, according to Ohio law.

Photos from TMZ showed the moment Brendan Paul, 25, was handcuffed in March. Paul was arrested at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport on felony charges of possession of suspected cocaine and other drugs.

Combs’ lavish lifestyle, often shown in his music videos, is now taking center stage in the investigation.

In a complaint, defendant Rodney Jones alleges that Combs lured sex workers and underage girls to his homes for drug-fueled parties. He alleged that Combs would order his cronies to add alcohol to date rape drugs, ecstasy and cocaine.

In an amended complaint, the plaintiff refers to Paul as Combs’ “mule” who allegedly acquired, transported and distributed ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine, marijuana and mushrooms…packing these substances in his carry-on luggage and passing through the TSA.

In photos included in the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that Paul can be seen with Diddy, allegedly holding what appear to be prescription medication bottles and a black bag that the plaintiff claims was full of illegal drugs.

The case alleged that Paul was among Combs’ employees who would negotiate the fees sex workers received and ensure they were paid.

Paul is a graduate of Hawken High School and a former Syracuse University basketball player.

Arresting officers claimed that Paul had contraband and suspected cocaine in his personal travel bags.
