Diddy sued for sex trafficking and assault

Sean Combs, also known as Diddy, has been sued by a former porn star for sexual assault and sex trafficking, court documents show.

Diddy is facing several civil lawsuits accusing him of being a violent sex offender who used alcohol and drugs to control his victims. This year, his homes were raided by federal agents.

The hip-hop artist, known as both Puff Daddy and Diddy, used actress Adria English as a “sexual pawn for the pleasure and financial gain of others” during his lavish “white parties” in the Hamptons and Florida between 2004 and 2009, the indictment says.

The latest lawsuit, filed in Manhattan on Wednesday, brings the number of lawsuits against Diddy to nine since November 2023.

“In light of all the courageous individuals who stood up to Defendant Combs, (English) is doing the same,” the complaint states.

According to her lawsuit, English is seeking a jury trial and undisclosed compensation.

“Due to the numerous lawsuits filed against Defendant Combs for the same or similar acts, there is now a growing awareness that Defendant Combs was involved in far more sinister acts than previously known, including physical abuse and sex trafficking,” the complaint states.

In March, armed agents raided Combs’ lavish luxury properties in Miami and Los Angeles. The operation was a huge success on both coasts and suggested that an investigation into the rapper was underway.

In May, disturbing surveillance video surfaced showing Diddy physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Casandra Ventura, backing up allegations she made late last year in a now-settled lawsuit.

Ventura sued Diddy in federal court last fall. The high-profile lawsuit was settled out of court, but a series of similarly lurid allegations of sexual assault against the hip-hop star followed.

Diddy has vehemently denied all allegations against him. His lawyer did not immediately respond to an AFP request for comment on the latest lawsuit.
