This week, it seemed like you couldn’t go 10 minutes without reading about another Diddy development.

As you're no doubt well aware, the Bad Boy Records founder has received extensive coverage in recent months in connection with sexual assault allegations, including those found in a lawsuit from Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones Jr. The claims in Rod's lawsuit, amended docs from which recently generated a whole new wave of coverage, have been called "outlandish" and "pure fiction" by a lawyer for Diddy.

It's also important to note that despite all of the wild rumors circulating on social media, Diddy has not been charged with any crimes in relation to the raids or lawsuits filed against him.

Below, we take a look back at selections from this week's long list of Diddy-focused headlines.

Brendan Paul, alleged in Jones' lawsuit to be Diddy's "mule" who's responsible for "drugs" and "guns," was arrested in Miami on Monday on cocaine and weed-related charges.

The examples of 50 doing this are simply too numerous to fully document here. 50, of course, has been very vocal throughout news coverage of the lawsuits and allegations against Diddy. This week, he did everything from further teasing a Diddy docuseries to offering "top dollar" for alleged party footage. 50 even brought Jay-Z and Donald Trump's names into the conversation.

At one point in 50's commentary, he seemingly reacted to an allegation from Jones' suit about Daphne Joy, his ex with whom he has a son, with his "I didn’t know you was a sex worker" remark. Said remark was in response to Rod's lawsuit, which alleges that Joy and Yung Miami engaged in sex work. From there, it was alleged that 50 was now seeking sole custody of his and Joy's son, something 50 later confirmed on social media. Joy later spoke out on Instagram, accusing 50 of rape and abuse. "You are wreaking real havoc, frenzy, and chaos onto people's lives," Joy said.
