Rapper Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, is once again facing sexual assault allegations.

In a lawsuit filed on Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. alleges that during his collaboration with Diddy on his most recent album, he was subjected to instances of sexual harassment, drugging, and threats by Combs.

As reported by NBC, the lawsuit claims that Jones stayed and traveled with Diddy from September 2022 to November 2023. During this period, he documented video and audio of Diddy and his staff, which he asserts contains evidence supporting his claims.

Legal documents detail instances of frequent unwanted groping and touching by Combs and allegations of Combs providing drugs and laced alcoholic beverages to minors and sex workers at his various residences.

Jones also alleges that Combs pressured him to solicit prostitutes and coerced him into engaging in sexual activities with them. Specifically, documents recount an incident where the producer woke up in bed alongside multiple sex workers, with no recollection of what had occurred and suspicions that he had been drugged prior to the encounter.

Currently, Diddy is involved in multiple ongoing sexual assault cases, yet he has maintained his innocence and denies all allegations against him.

Jones is currently seeking $30 million in damages.
