Sean "Diddy" Combs' ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton said federal agents used "excessive" force against the rap mogul's son, as she shared new footage of the raid on his Los Angeles home last month.

On March 25, the Department of Homeland Security searched Combs' homes in LA and Miami. Several outlets reported that the raid was part of a sex-trafficking investigation, citing unnamed law-enforcement sources.

Combs has not been charged and his lawyer Aaron Dyer described the search as "excessive" to Business Insider at the time.

Combs, who Forbes estimates has a net worth of $90 million, is facing four civil lawsuits brought against him over the last six months.

On Tuesday, Hylton, who dated Combs in the early 1990s, also criticized the raid on Instagram, as she shared footage that appeared to be taken from surveillance cameras inside and outside Combs' LA home. The property is worth $40 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The video appears to show federal agents driving to the property, entering it, and detaining Justin Dior Combs, Combs' 30-year-old son with Hylton, and Christian Combs, the rapper's 26-year-old son with the late Kim Porter.

The brothers were not charged after the raid.

"The over zealous and overtly militarized force used against my sons Justin and Christian is deplorable," Hylton wrote in the caption. "If these were the sons of a non-Black celebrity, they would not have been handled with the same aggression. The attempt to humiliate and terrorize these innocent young BLACK MEN is despicable!"

The surveillance footage appeared to show Christian Combs being handcuffed against a wall and officers pointing firearms at Justin Combs.

"Enough is Enough! Did Justin need several laser beams from firearms pointed at his chest?? Did Christian need a gun pointed at the back of his head while he was handcuffed??" Hylton wrote. "How many times have we seen young UNARMED BLACK MEN not make it out of these types of situations alive??"

Hylton added that Justin Combs' attorney, Jeffrey Lichtman, was investigating what she described as "the excessive use of force."

She went on: "We will fight for justice utilizing every imaginable resource. I'm not with the propaganda!!!!"

Representatives of Combs and his sons, Hylton, and the Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI.

Combs' lawyer, Aaron Dyer, maintained the star's innocence in a statement to BI following the raid.

"There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated," Dyer said. "This unprecedented ambush — paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence — leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits."
