The accusations against music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs continue to mount in the wake of the explosive lawsuit alleging rape and human trafficking, filed by his ex-girlfriend and former artist, Cassie.
In his fourth allegation of sexual assault in less than three weeks, Diddy is accused of gang-raping and sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl. But, the billionaire businessman says this is yet another attempt at a quick cash grab at his expense.
The filing details an alleged incident in which the accuser, identified as Ms. Doe, said she was drugged and raped by the “Last Night” rapper and two other men, including former president of Bad Boy Entertainment Harve Pierre. She said the incident occurred in 2003 after a night out with friends at a club in Detroit, where she first met Pierre.
According to Page Six, Pierre told her she was attractive and convinced her that Diddy was his best friend and would love to meet her. He then connected her with Diddy, who convinced her to meet him in New York. Although she agreed to the arrangement, she said she was forced to give Pierre, who was high on crack cocaine, oral sex before the flight.
Once the two landed at the Teterboro airport in New Jersey, Ms. Doe said she was taken to a studio owned by Bad Boy, where Combs, Pierre, and a third man gave her drugs and alcohol.
“As the night wore on, the 17-year-old Ms. Doe became more and more inebriated, eventually to the point that she could not possibly have consented to having sex with anyone, much less someone twice her age,” the filing read, revealing specific details of the alleged sexual assault.
“While at the studio, Ms. Doe was gang raped by Mr. Combs, the Third Assailant, and Mr. Pierre, in that order,” the filing continued. “While Mr. Combs was raping Ms. Doe, he complained that he could not ‘get off’ unless she pinched his nipples as hard as she could.”
“Mr. Combs then watched on as Third Assailant, who Ms. Doe had not even realized had begun to have sex with her, raped Ms. Doe as she told him to stop. After Third Assailant was finished, Mr. Pierre took his turn at raping Ms. Doe and then violently forced her to give him oral sex, during which Ms. Doe was choking and struggling to breathe,” it added.
“When Mr. Pierre finished, he left Ms. Doe in the bathroom alone. Ms. Doe fell into the fetal position and lay on the floor. Her vagina was in pain,” the filing read, adding that she could barely stand or even remember how she got back home afterward.
The accuser also included a photo of her sitting on Combs’ lap from around the time of the incident and pictures of her inside Diddy’s studio. She is seeking monetary damages over the incident, which she says caused her “significant emotional distress and feels of shame that have plagued her life and personal relationships for 20 years.”
“Most triggering for Ms. Doe was reading about Ms. Ventura’s allegations of sex trafficking and being forced to have sex with other men against her will. Ms. Doe obviously understands that she too had been sex trafficked and that Mr Combs’s behavior in forcing women into nonconsensual sex was not an isolated incident or unique only to Ms. Ventura,” the filing read.
Immediately after the filing, Combs provided a statement on Instagram, denying the allegations.
“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” Combs said. “For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday. Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family, and for the truth.”
