SEAN "DIDDY" COMBS will be charged with assault after allegedly delivering a bloody rapping to a SOHO clubgoer over the weekend, police sources told THE NEW YORK POST. Cops were reinterviewing witnesses -- and were possibly poised to slap a more serious gun rap against one of the star's bodyguards -- after COMBS roughed up love rival STEVEN ACEVEDO at the trendy club KIOSK in NEW YORK CITY in the wee hours SATURDAY, the sources said.
ACEVEDO told cops that the pair got into an argument at the club around 3:30a and then briefly separated before starting to fight again. COMBS then clocked him twice in the face, busting his lip and bloodying his nose, ACEVEDO claims.
COMBS will be charged with a misdemeanor -- third-degree assault -- and given a desk-appearance ticket for his role in the incident, the sources said. He will not face jail time, they said.
