Title: Sean “Diddy” Combs Faces New Lawsuit Alleging Sexual Assault and Recording Without Consent
Subtitle: The lawsuit comes as the third in a week against Combs or his companies, further exposing sexual abuse allegations.
In a shocking development, music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has been hit with yet another lawsuit, this time by a woman who claims he drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1991. The suit, which was filed in the New York Supreme Court, alleges that Combs recorded the assault without her knowledge. This disturbing revelation comes just before the expiration of the New York Adult Survivors Act.
The lawsuit, brought forward by Joie Dickerson-Neal, centers around an alleged encounter between Combs and herself during her time as a college student at Syracuse University. Dickerson-Neal asserts that Combs intentionally drugged her, sexually assaulted her, and secretly recorded the assault. Shockingly, the suit also claims that a member of the popular ’90s R&B group Jodeci, DeVanté Swing, viewed a “sex tape” of the assault alongside others.
The effects of the assault on Dickerson-Neal’s life have been devastating. Suffering from severe depression and suicidal thoughts, she eventually dropped out of college. Initially, she did not report the assault due to confusion, pain, and shame. However, she later mustered the strength to file police reports and speak to prosecutors.
Dickerson-Neal’s decision to take legal action against Combs was partly influenced by singer Cassie, who recently filed her own lawsuit against the music mogul. In response to the mounting allegations, Combs’ spokesperson dismissed the claims as a “money grab.”
This recent lawsuit is not an isolated incident. Last week, Cassie filed a $30 million lawsuit against Combs, which was reportedly settled for an undisclosed sum. In addition, another lawsuit has been filed implicating the former President of Bad Boy Entertainment and Bad Boy Records, Harve Pierre, for sexually assaulting a former assistant.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages for Dickerson-Neal’s mental and emotional injury, distress, pain, suffering, and subsequent financial harm. It names Combs, Bad Boy Entertainment, Bad Boy Records, and Combs Enterprises as defendants.
As these sexual abuse allegations continue to surface, they cast a shadow over Combs’ reputation in the industry. It remains to be seen how these lawsuits will affect his career and personal life. The industry and public alike will be closely watching as the legal proceedings unfold.
