Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Sued By Music Producer over Alleged 2023 Sexual Assault 

Must read

NEW YORK, USA – Sean Combs, known as Diddy, the celebrated “Coming Home” rapper and music mogul, is embroiled in fresh controversy as he faces a new lawsuit accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Producer Rodney Jones Jr., known professionally as Lil Rod, has filed a lawsuit claiming an incident of sexual misconduct that allegedly occurred in July 2023, The New York Times reports.

Jones, who asserts that he lived with Combs while contributing to nine songs on Combs’ latest project, The Love Album: Off the Grid, alleges that Combs groped him and that he awoke next to a sex worker after consuming tequila laced with drugs. The lawsuit does not specify who provided Jones with the drugged drinks.

Further allegations within the lawsuit accuse Combs of pressuring Jones to solicit sex workers and perform sex acts for Combs’ pleasure.

In response to these serious allegations, Combs’ attorney, Shawn Holley, has vehemently denied the claims, labeling Jones as a “liar” seeking a substantial financial settlement.

Holley’s statement to EW emphasizes the defense’s position, stating they possess “overwhelming, indisputable proof” that Jones’ accusations are fabricated.

Efforts to share this proof with Jones’ attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, have reportedly been met with silence.

In addition to Combs, Jones has named Universal Music as a defendant, attributing the inclusion to the company’s partnership with Combs during the album’s production.

Representatives for Jones and Universal Music have yet to respond to requests for comment on the matter.

This lawsuit adds to a growing list of legal challenges for Combs.

In recent months, he has faced four other lawsuits, including allegations from Cassie, the singer and Combs’ former romantic partner, who sued the mogul for rape, physical abuse, and control over a prolonged period.

The suit was settled the day after it was filed. Other lawsuits involve accusations of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, sex trafficking, revenge porn, and rape stemming from incidents dating back to the early 1990s and as recent as 2003.

Combs has denied all allegations in each case.
