Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, responds to accusation of rape.

Diddy, the famous rapper and entrepreneur also known as Sean Combs, has submitted a response to accusations that he and two other individuals committed sexual assault against a 17-year-old girl at a music studio in 2003.

On Tuesday, new forms were submitted, as reported by Rolling Stone, which completely refuted the accusations made by the unidentified plaintiff who is suing Combs. The paperwork also requested for the lawsuit to be thrown out. According to the documents, Combs has never been involved in, witnessed, or had any knowledge of any wrongdoing, including sexual misconduct, towards the plaintiff in any situation. Combs has previously denied various sexual assault claims against him and has stated, “I did not engage in any of the dreadful actions that are being claimed. I will defend my reputation, my loved ones, and the truth.”

Harve Pierre, co-defendant and president of Bad Boy Records, has submitted his own response to the lawsuit, denying any involvement in or witness to the alleged sexual assault of the plaintiff.

The female accuser claims that Pierre coerced her into engaging in oral sex, while he and Combs provided her with drugs and alcohol until she was unable to give consent. She also claims that once they arrived at the New York studio, Combs sexually assaulted her in a restroom, followed by a third unknown individual.

The recently filed documents by Combs challenge a photo that supposedly depicts the unnamed plaintiff sitting on Combs’ lap, questioning the “context, authenticity, and accuracy” of the photos. They also express concern about the 20-year gap between the alleged incident and the accusations, stating that “evidence that would have been available if the case had been promptly initiated may now be unavailable, lost, or compromised.” The lawsuit against Combs is being pursued under the Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Law, which allows for cases of this nature to be filed outside of the typical statute of limitations. The new documents argue that this New York state legislation infringes upon Combs’ constitutional rights.

“The plaintiff’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, replied to Combs’ submission by stating: “The accusations made by multiple women against the defendants are concerning and speak for themselves. The absurd argument that the photos are fabricated and the relevant law is unconstitutional are merely desperate efforts to create a defense where there is none.”

In late 2023, Combs faced his fourth round of accusations. One of the cases, filed by his ex-girlfriend and singer known as Cassie, was resolved the following day.

Two additional cases were submitted under the Adult Survivors Act, a law that permitted lawsuits to be filed beyond the statute of limitations. One of the cases involved Joi Dickerson-Neal, who accused Combs of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 1991, and also distributing a video of the assault as a form of “revenge porn.” The other case involved an anonymous woman who claimed that Combs and singer Aaron Hall raped her and a friend in Hall’s apartment in either 1990 or 1991. As of now, no resolution or decision has been reached in these cases.

Combs put out a statement following the fourth allegation, saying: “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.”
