A Florida woman claiming she’s engaged to hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs was arrested on Valentine’s Day after she made several 911 calls saying his family was beating and holding him hostage, police said.
Miami Beach police officers responded to Jermelah Jones’ first 911 call on Jan. 23. She told officers Combs was her fiancé and that he was in distress because of the alleged beatings, police said.
Officers then went to Combs’ home where they talked to relatives who said he was asleep in his room. Combs woke up and told cops he didn’t know Jones and wasn’t engaged to her, an arrest report states.
Police contacted Jones telling her to stop making false allegations, but she ignored the warning and continued calling 911 several times claiming Combs was in danger.
Police spoke to Jones again on Jan. 26, informing her Combs was in “perfect health” and that he said he didn’t know her. Jones told officers she understood making false statements is a crime and would stop. But she kept calling about Combs regardless, according to the report.
Jones made one last 911 call on Feb. 6 and then went to Comb’s home where she attempted to get inside. Police tracked her down and she continued claiming Combs was her fiancé, but couldn’t recall any of his personal information sources said.
The woman then told cops she’s “been recruited by the devil and his people.”
Jones was charged with making false statement to law enforcement.
