Sean “Diddy” Combs has finally spoken out about the sexual assault allegations against him, vehemently denying the claims.
A total of four lawsuits have been filed against the rapper and Bad Boy Records founder, alleging sexual assault.
In an Instagram post, Combs wrote: “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. For the last couple of weeks, 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,” he continued. “Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.”
Early this week, a woman, whose name wasn’t disclosed, sued the hip-hop mogul, claiming he and two other men raped her 20 years ago in a New York City recording studio when she was 17.
The lawsuit alleges that Combs, Harve Pierre, the former president of Combs’ Bad Boy Entertainment, and an unnamed man gave the accuser drugs and alcohol and then took turns raping her inside Daddy’s House Recording Studio, a studio owned by Combs and Bad Boy, in 2003.
Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Cassie was the first to accuse him of sexual assault, filing a lawsuit in November in which attorneys for Cassie claimed she “endured over a decade of his violent behavior and disturbed demands,” including repeated physical attacks and forcing her to “engage in sex acts with male sex workers” while he masturbated. The case was settled.
Combs was later sued by two other women who claimed they were sexually abused by singer.
