A new lawsuit has been filed against Sean “Diddy” Combs, accusing him of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman on a date in 1991. The complaint, filed by Joi Dickerson-Neal, alleges that Combs gave her drugs that left her incapacitated, leading to a sexual assault. The lawsuit claims that Combs filmed the assault without the victim’s knowledge, and the recording was later seen by others.
This comes shortly after Diddy settled similar accusations made by his ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura. A spokesperson for Diddy has vehemently denied the claims, calling the lawsuit a “money grab.” The lawsuit is filed just before the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act, allowing survivors of sexual assault a one-year lookback window to sue their abusers, regardless of when the incident occurred.
The accuser’s life, as described in the court document, took a toll after the alleged assault, leading to hospitalization for severe depression and suicide ideation. Diddy’s representative insists that the accusations are baseless and fabricated, emphasizing that the lawsuit is an attempt at financial gain. The legal proceedings will likely unfold amid public scrutiny, highlighting the challenges surrounding allegations of historic sexual assault.
