A Queen's New York rapper, Swinderella, accused Diddy of stealing and modifying her song "Act Bad," which she released two years ago. Diddy's version of the song, which is on Billboard's Hot Trending Songs' top five, features City Girls and Fabolous.

According to Hiphop DX, a member of Swinderella's team spoke out about the allegation in a now-deleted Instagram post, "The industry will really send people to bite your whole entire swagg!" "You never know who watching you, they not creative enough, they're not organic enough!" Swinderella also addressed the issue via her Instagram story "They keep telling me I need a hit whole time I got em and the billionaires stealing my whole shit."

Diddy's controversy doesn't end with Swinderella's allegations. He was recently called out by his son's mother and fashion stylist, Misa Hylton, after his son Justin Combs received an OWI in Los Angeles. Justin, who is 29, was reportedly with Diddy when he received the OWI. In a string of messages on her Instagram story, Misa appeared upset about the OWI but called out Diddy's character and alluded to things she apparently didn't intend to clarify. She stated, "Everyone has to sit around for years and act like there isn't anything wrong with you. This is where the buck stops for me." "I'm not protecting no one anymore, just my son." "If anything ever happened to my son GOD FORBID..What is anyone going to say to me?? When we all know who's fault it would be." Her most cryptic message in the string of posts stated, "The statement a fish rots from the head down means that, in addition to being a major contributing factor in a success, leadership is also the root cause of its failure and demise."

Hylton and Sean "Diddy" Combs were a couple in the early '90s; they share one son, Justin Combs. While they reportedly had a tumultuous relationship, the pair worked closely in the entertainment business and helped catapult each other's careers in music and fashion. Misa refers to herself as the "architect" after styling a plethora of '90s artists, especially many iconic looks for Lil' Kim, Jodeci, and Mary J. Blige, and even current day artists such as Beyoncé. She's a designer for the luxury brand MCM and Macy's department store and has the Misa Hylton Fashion Academy in New York City.
