Two men who pulled up in his car outside of Diddy's home in Los Angeles as it was being raided went viral for claiming he was the Bad Boy Records founder's neighbor, alleging he saw minors entering the property at night. But one of their mothers has clarified her son was trolling the media.

TMZ reports that the mother of one of the two men who pulled up to the press at the scene in Los Angeles has confirmed that he's not Diddy's neighbor, despite his claims in the now-viral clip. The driver of the car has been identified as Khaliq Thomas, per his mother Holly. She said that her son and his friend he was riding with live in the area, but do not live right next to Diddy.

As Diddy's home was being raided by authorities, reportedly as part of a sex trafficking investigation, the two men pulled up in a Bentley and the man in the passenger side yelled out to the press. "Tell him to stop bringing all them minors over here late at night," one of the men shouted. "I live right next to him. He do too much." The man alleged that Diddy was bringing "big ass busses" of minors to his property. "It gets wild. I'm his neighbor. When my basketball go over there I just let it be, 'cause I don't wanna knock on the door."

Someone who actually is a neighbor of the 54-year-old media mogul was spotted getting increasingly frustrated that he couldn't return home during the raid, though. As reported by the New York Post, 86-year-old director Ridley Scott wanted to get to his home, which is located near Diddy's, as the raid was taking place. He spoke to police officers at the scene but was not permitted to get to his house until authorities were done searching Diddy's property.

Federal agents reportedly seized multiple electronic devices during the raids at Diddy's homes in Los Angeles and Miami on Tuesday. His legal counsel has condemned what they described as "military-level force" by Homeland Security. "Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities," said Combs’ attorney, Aaron Dyer, in a statement. "Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way."

Before the raids this month, Diddy was hit with a huge lawsuit from ex-girlfriend Cassie, who claimed he abused her from 2005 to 2018. The following day, he reached a settlement with her. Further cases followed, including one last month from producer Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones.
