Diddy was seen around 3pm at the same airport, shortly before Paul’s arrest there. This happened hours after the raid began, following his jet’s arrival from LA.  Diddy’s Gulfstream 5 jet was later traced to the Caribbean island of Antigua, but the rapper was not on board.

As per the arrest affidavit, the defendant was found with contraband cocaine and a marijuana-laced candy in his travel bags.

Paul’s name appeared in an eight-figure lawsuit filed by producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones against Mr. Combs, alleging that the 25-year-old was responsible for smuggling drugs and guns for Mr. Combs.

It’s unclear if Paul’s arrest was related to the raids that took place at Los Angeles and Miami residences associated with Diddy on Monday or the lawsuit in which Paul was named.
