Sean “Diddy” Combs Sued Again, Accused of Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Girl in 2003

Note: This article contains descriptions of alleged sexual assault.

Sean “Diddy” Combs has been sued for the fourth time this autumn by a woman who accuses him of sexual assault. In the new complaint, the woman, identified as Jane Doe, claims that Diddy, former Bad Boy Entertainment president Harve Pierre, and an unnamed third person “sex trafficked and gang raped” her in 2003 when she was a 17-year-old high school student.

Doe claims in her lawsuit that she met Pierre and the third person “in a lounge in the Detroit, Michigan area,” and that “Pierre insisted that he was ‘best friends’ with Mr. Combs, and even called Mr. Combs with Ms. Doe.”

Douglas H. Wigdor, one of the lawyers representing Jane Doe, said in a statement: “As alleged in the complaint, Defendants preyed on a vulnerable high school teenager as part of a sex trafficking scheme that involved plying her with drugs and alcohol and transporting her by private jet to New York City where she was gang raped by the three individual defendants at Mr. Combs’ studio. The depravity of these abhorrent acts has, not surprisingly, scarred our client for life.”

In a statement shared with Pitchfork, Sean “Diddy” 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.

Since Cassie filed and settled her lawsuit against Diddy, two other women have filed lawsuits against the hip-hop musician and mogul. In one lawsuit, Joi Dickerson-Neal claims that Diddy drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1991; she also says that Diddy filmed the alleged assault without her consent. In the other recent lawsuit, a woman identified as Liza Gardner says that Diddy and the R&B singer Aaron Hall sexually assaulted her and a friend in the early 1990s. A spokesperson for Diddy has said that the women’s active lawsuits contain “fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago.”

Last week, Revolt announced that Diddy was temporarily stepping down as the chairman of the media company that he co-founded.
