Combs filed his complaint in the state Supreme Court in New York.

According to Revolt, Diageo allegedly failed to make DeLeon Tequila as successful as possible.

Especially since Diageo’s brands, Don Julio and Casamigos, have had great success.

The issue is the brands I aforementioned are founded by actors George Clooney, Randy Gerber, and Mike Meldman.

However, Diageo has not allegedly done the same for Comb’s DeLeon Tequila.

Furthermore, Combs’s complaint claims he has experienced unequal treatment.

And has been continuous that Comb has felt the lack of support.

Also, Diageo’s CEO Ivan Menezes has shown great reluctance to work somewhat with Black partners allegedly.

Sadly, it is not the first venture with Combs and Diageo.

Previous deals with Diageo were quite successful.

At that time, Diageo reached out to Combs to create a new brand of liquor, as stated by Yahoo,

Things went well because CIROC’s sales went from 40,000 to 2,600,ooo in a few years.
