Sean “Diddy” Combs faces new sexual assault lawsuit

He is said to have forced a producer to have sex with prostitutes and drugged him.

After several lawsuits last year, Sean “Diddy” Combs has to deal with allegations of sexual violence again. Producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, who worked with him on his latest album, is suing the rapper for sexual assault and harassment. He said Combs forced him to have sex with prostitutes and drugged and threatened him for a year.

Screenshots as evidence

This indictment was filed on Monday, February 26th in federal court in New York. Jones claims he lived with Combs from September 2022 to November 2023, traveled with him and produced nine songs on THE LOVE ALBUM: OFF THE GRID with him. During this time, he is said to have been forced by the hip-hop mogul to approach prostitutes and perform sexual acts with them. Combs also gave alcohol to various people in his house without their knowledge.

According to his statement, there were screenshots that were used to capture images of evenings in which underage girls and sex workers were present and were said to have received drinks from the rapper. In another statement, Lil Rod explains that he woke up one morning and found himself in a bed with two women – he believes he had been drugged. In addition, he should have worked in the presence of his former partner while he “walked around naked and showered in a transparent glass house.” Jones is seeking around $28 million from Diddy in his lawsuit.

Diddy’s lawyer denies allegations

A lawyer for the defendant has already met with one statement spoke out, saying the charges were “reckless name-dropping over events that are pure fiction and simply didn’t happen” and went on to describe them as a “transparent attempt to grab headlines.” On top of that, he says, “We have overwhelming, indisputable evidence that his claims are complete lies. Our attempts to share this evidence with Mr Jones’s lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, have been ignored as Mr Blackburn refuses to return our calls. We will address these outrageous allegations in court and take all appropriate action against those who made them.”

The plaintiff’s legal representative tells People: “Litigation should never be the first option in a dispute. We filed a lawsuit because the other side refused to negotiate.” It is not yet clear when a possible court hearing might take place.
