Brendan Paul, Accused Drug Mule for Diddy, Pleads Not Guilty to Possession Charge in Miami-Dade

A close associate of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Brendan Paul, who is charged with drug possession, pleaded not guilty. Paul has been accused of being the mule for the music baron’s drugs and guns and has been under detention since March 25, 2024. He was arrested at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport and was formally arraigned in a Miami-Dade County courtroom on Wednesday. Paul, who played basketball for Syracuse University in 2019, bonded out of jail on March 26.

The 25-year-old Brendan Paul has been officially charged with possessing cocaine and marijuana-laced candy, a controlled substance. Paul was not physically present in the courtroom, and his attorney, Brian Bieber, entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Paul’s lawyer, Brian Bieber, said,

“We entered Brendan’s plea of not guilty in court today. We will be dealing with this case in the courtroom, not the court of public opinion.”

Videos showed Diddy walking around the same airport where Paul was arrested on March 25 when Homeland Security was conducting a raid on the mogul’s mansions in Miami Beach and Los Angeles. The raids were part of the ongoing sex trafficking probe. Diddy’s attorney, Aaron Dyer, called the raids akin to an “unprecedented ambush” and maintained that his client is innocent and will do everything to clear his name.

Aaron Dyer said,

“There was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences. There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated.”

Diddy is under investigation for sex trafficking, illegal gun possession, and other alleged crimes. Paul, who is very close to Diddy and knows a lot about the goings-on in Diddy’s party, is now a wild card. Though the Feds are not going to see this as a major crime but use Paul as a witness and charges in return for cooperation in the Diddy case and could offer a dropping of charges or a reduced sentence in return.

Paul’s name was added in music producer Rodney Jones’ amended sexual assault lawsuit against Diddy where the former claimed that Paul worked as a “mule” for the rapper and would procure transport and distribute ecstasy, cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, mushrooms, and tuci. Jones also revealed that Paul worked as a mule and transported drugs on three separate trips on Dec. 22, 2022; April 28, 2023; and Nov. 4, 2023. Paul Jones allegedly also procured sex workers for Diddy and was the person who negotiated the fees for the sex workers for their services.
