Sean 'Diddy' Combs dropped by powerful NYC lawyers — but not because of Lady Gaga, firm claims


Grubman, Shire, Meiselas & Sacks, the powerhouse Manhattan law firm that represents most of the music industry's bigwigs, has outed rebel rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs.

A spokesperson for the law firm exclusively told Page Six that, “Several months ago, the firm’s partners actively made the decision to part ways with Mr. Combs because they felt it was the right move.”

Lady Gaga asked the company to either fire Combs — who faces mounting sexual assault allegations — or she would leave the company, NewsNation reported Saturday.

A company spokesperson told the Post, “Reports that this decision was the result of customer pressure are not true.”

The anonymous insider reportedly told NewsNighton that the “Poker Face” singer said she was leaving [the firm] If they hadn’t left Diddy.”

But a source who knows the singer told Page Six that “that conversation never happened.”

The source told Page Six that GSM&S dropped the rapper due to the assault allegations.

In chilling surveillance documents from 2016 released in May, Combs was allegedly seen pushing, kicking and dragging his then-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura. AP

Diddy was a client of the law firm for over 20 years.

He was friends with famed attorney Allen Grubman, even staying at his Hamptons home until Allen Grubman's position collapsed, NewsNation reports.

Dispatch says the company's biggest fear was that Gaga's departure would spark a race among other burgeoning artists to exit.

“Lady Gaga said she's leaving [the firm] “If they don't drop Diddy. And he's too big to lose,” the insider said of Frolich. GC Images

Grubman, a founder of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, becomes the first practicing attorney to be inducted there in November 2022.

GSM&S's former and current clients include Elton John, Barbra Streisand, Lil Nas X, The Weeknd, Madonna, U2 and Drake.

Combs has been considered persona non grata ever since reports of alleged lewd conduct surfaced.

As the Post previously reported, Mayor Adams revoked Combs’ keys to New York City less than three weeks after a shocking video leaked of the rap legend beating up his ex-wife.

The keys were returned after Adams sent a letter to Combs on June 4, according to Fabian Levy, deputy mayor for communications.

Combs also deleted his Instagram last week.
