Diddy Faces New Rape Allegations, Denies Wrongdoing

Content Warning: The following article discusses sexual assault and rape.

A woman has accused Sean “Diddy” Combs and two others of sexually assaulting her nearly two decades ago when she was 17 years old. This marks the fourth lawsuit filed against Combs in recent weeks, as various women, including his former girlfriend Casandra Ventura (Cassie), have accused him of sexual assault. He settled with Cassie just a day after she filed her lawsuit.

In the latest lawsuit, the woman, identified as Jane Doe, alleges that she underwent a traumatic ordeal of “gang rape” and “sex trafficking” orchestrated by Combs and two associates. She filed the complaint in federal court in Manhattan, New York. Combs vehemently denies the allegations and has vowed to defend his reputation and family

Jane Doe’s Alleged Assault at Diddy’s Studio

Jane Doe’s account begins when she met Combs and Harve Pierre, the president of Bad Boy Records, at a Detroit lounge in 2003. According to her, Pierre convinced her to accompany them, along with two others, on a private jet bound for Combs’s New York recording studio.

Before departing, Pierre allegedly directed her to a lounge restroom, where he consumed crack cocaine and coerced her into performing oral sex. Upon arriving at Combs’s studio, someone allegedly gave her drugs and alcohol, which incapacitated her and made her unable to consent to sexual activity.

Diddy allegedly then led her to a studio bathroom, where he forcibly undressed and sexually assaulted her. During this traumatic event, she alleges drifting in and out of consciousness due to the drugs and alcohol. Combs reportedly allowed the third man to rape her while he watched from outside, despite her pleas for intervention.

After the assault, someone escorted Doe out of the building. She claims she could barely stand due to the trauma and had little recollection of her journey back to Michigan. Court documents also include images of the woman inside what is believed to be Combs’ music studio. The woman said she gained confidence to come forward after seeing the other cases involving Combs and Pierre.

It’s important to note that the previous three lawsuits against Combs were filed under the New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which temporarily extended the statute of limitations for sexual assault cases. This latest filing falls under New York City’s Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Act, allowing survivors of gender-based violence to pursue civil suits against their perpetrators, even beyond the statute of limitations.
