People are saying Diddy predicted what would happen to him in video from 1997

A person joked on social media that a clip from 1997 could foreshadow federal agents raiding properties owned by Sean 'Diddy' Combs

People have joked that Sean 'Diddy' Combs 'predicted' what would happen to him in a resurfaced clip from 1997.

The tweet was posted after federal officers from the Homeland Security Investigations searched two properties belonging to the rap mogul.

Officers raided a property in Los Angeles and another in Miami as part of an ongoing investigation into sex trafficking by authorities in New York.

It is not clear if Combs was a target in the searches.

The raids have sparked masses of posts online, and among them was one joking that Combs had somehow foreseen what was going to happen.

In the clip the rapper can be seen standing outside a private jet.

Suddenly, a convoy of sinister-looking black Mercedes cars comes tearing down the runway in formation.

He says "Ah man, we got some visitors. Let's get up on outta here," before the pair get on the plane, which takes off leaving the pursuing cars in its wake.

The clip is from a 1997 music video for Been Around the World, featuring Notorious B.I.G. and Mase.

One person tweeted the clip and made a reference to Monday's raids.

They wrote: "Diddy tried to tell us how this story would end in 97."

A spokesperson for Homeland Security Investigations confirmed the raids in a statement, saying: "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.

"We will provide further information as it becomes available."

Combs has faced several lawsuits from a number of different people, including from his former girlfriend R&B singer Cassie, who sued him in November.

Cassie came forward publicly and claimed she had suffered years of sexual abuse.

The suit was settled the day after it was filed.

Combs has also faced allegations that he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl in a recording studio in 2003.

Music producer Rodney 'Li Rod' Jones has also filed a lawsuit against Combs in which he alleges that Combs drugged, threatened, and sexually harassed him.

Combs has denied all the allegations made against him.

In a statement in December 2023, Combs said: "Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth."

UNILAD has reached out to representatives of Combs and Homeland Security Investigations for comment.
