According to NBC News, Sean “Diddy” Combs is the subject of an ongoing federal criminal investigation. The news network cited two sources familiar with Combs’ ongoing legal troubles.

“This is the next step in the process for Mr. Combs as the investigation continues,” said a law enforcement official with knowledge of the grand jury proceedings. Deadline tonight. The official also confirmed that Sean Combs and his attorneys were formally notified of the grand jury last week, NBC reported.

NBC defined Combs’ status as a subject of an investigation as “someone who falls within the scope of a criminal investigation, according to legal experts. An individual is designated as a target when prosecutors likely intend to seek a grand jury indictment against the person.”

This news comes three months after Combs’ homes in Los Angeles and Miami were searched by police.
