Diddy faces new legal challenges as he is implicated in yet another lawsuit, accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and illicit drugging by a producer who contributed to his recent album, The Love Album: Off the Grid.

In the legal filing, Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones alleges that he lived with Diddy from September 2022 to November 2023, during which Diddy coerced Jones into arranging sex workers, pressured him into unwelcome sexual acts, and provided spiked alcoholic beverages at his parties.

Seeking $30 million in damages, Jones lists Diddy’s son Justin, chief of staff Kristina Khorram, Universal Music Group CEO Sir Lucian Grainge, and former Motown Records CEO Ethiopia Habtemariam as co-defendants. Jones claims they collaborated in a “RICO enterprise” that failed to adequately oversee the actions of Diddy, his son, and his chief of staff.

Jones’ lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, states, “Throughout his time with Mr. Combs, Mr. Jones witnessed, experienced, and endured many things that went far beyond his role as a Producer on the Love album,” emphasizing that Combs “required” constant recording.

Filed on Tuesday, Feb. 27, in the U.S District Court for the Southern District of New York, the 75-page lawsuit also involves City Girls’ Yung Miami, Diddy’s girlfriend at the time; detailing a sexual assault by Yung Miami’s female cousin in the presence of Combs and his staff.

Responding to the allegations, Diddy’s attorney, Shawn Holley, counters the claims as “pure fiction” and asserts that they have “overwhelming, indisputable proof of their lies.” “We will address these outlandish allegations in court and take all appropriate action against those who make them.”

This comes after a previous legal dispute initiated by Cassie, a former Bad Boy artist, in November, alleging control, rape, and prolonged abuse by Diddy over a decade. The parties settled within 24 hours of the filing.
