Rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs is being sued by a woman who accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her 30 years ago! The woman who complained about the rapper claims that the attack occurred during a meeting with him.
Rapper Puff Daddy is accused of sexual assault again!
Most recently, Combs reached a settlement in another sexual assault case brought by R&B singer Casandra "Cassie" Ventura, who was his former life partner, the BBC reported, citing PROTV.ro.
"This is just an attempt to get money and nothing more," a spokesman for Combs told the BBC on Thursday. Moreover, he also stated that the accusations were made up.
In the lawsuit, plaintiff Joy Dickerson-Neal claims she knew Combs, also known as Puff Daddy and P Diddy, through mutual acquaintances. She also appeared in one of his videos.
It all happened on January 3, 1991, when the woman agreed to meet him right in the Harlem restaurant where she worked. The man later "insisted on keeping her company while attending several events in the city."
She claims that during this time the rapper drugged her, "as a result of which she was unable to stand or walk on her own."
He then drove her to his home, where he sexually assaulted her, according to the complaint.
According to the statement, she later discovered that he had secretly videotaped the entire incident and showed the footage to several people.
Documents in the case show her life went into a “whirlwind” after the alleged attack: She experienced severe mental health problems and soon dropped out of college.
The lawsuit was filed just hours before New York's Adult Survivor Ordinance goes into effect on Nov. 24, which eliminates the statute of limitations and allows alleged victims of sex crimes to sue.
“Our client has not been able to escape the ongoing impact of the harm I caused Combs many years ago,” said Jonathan Goldhirsh, one of the plaintiff’s attorneys.
“Thanks to the Adult Survivors of Violence Ordinance, they can turn to the justice system to finally get justice,” he said.
A spokesman for Combs said: “This last-minute lawsuit is an example of how a well-intentioned law can be overturned. "The story of 32-year-old Dickerson is fictitious and not credible."
