Sean “Diddy” Combs Faces Additional Sexual Abuse Allegations Amidst Previous Lawsuit Settlement

NEW YORK ( Two more women have stepped forward, accusing music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs of sexual abuse, just one week after settling a separate lawsuit with singer Cassie, involving allegations of rape and physical abuse.

Both new lawsuits were filed on Thursday, coinciding with the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act, providing victims of sexual abuse a one-year window to file civil actions irrespective of the statute of limitations.

The filings outline acts of sexual assault, beatings, and forced drugging allegedly committed by Combs in the early 1990s when he was a talent director and rising figure in New York City’s hip-hop scene.

Accuser Joi Dickerson recounts a 1991 incident where Combs allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted her, later sharing a video of the assault within the music industry. In a separate lawsuit, an unnamed woman, identified as Jane Doe, accuses Combs and R&B singer Aaron Hall of sexual assault, followed by a physical beating several days later.

Combs denies the allegations, claiming exploitation of the New York law extending the statute of limitations. A spokesperson for Combs accuses the accusers of seeking to take advantage of the legal extension.

The lawsuits follow explosive allegations by Cassie Ventura, settled recently, detailing a pattern of abuse during her years-long relationship with Combs. Ventura accused him of drug use, severe beatings, and coercive sexual activities.

In response to the settlement, Ventura expressed a desire for resolution with some control over the terms. Combs stated, “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”

These legal developments unfold as Combs, now 54, holds a prominent position in the hip-hop industry, having founded Bad Boys Records and contributed to the success of artists like Mary J. Blige and Biggie Smalls.
