Diddy accused of sexually harassing, drugging and threatening his videographer

Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. is suing Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs for $30 million, claiming the Bad Boy Records founder sexually harassed, drugged, and threatened him for more than a year.

We reported earlier that Jones claims he served as Comb’s videographer from September 2022 to November 2023 while traveling with him. Throughout this period, he documented extensive video and audio evidence of Combs, his associates, and additional individuals participating in significant unlawful activities.

One of the allegations is that Combs coerced Jones into arranging sex workers and insisted on his involvement in unwanted sexual acts with them and others. Additionally, it’s claimed that Combs provided spiked alcoholic drinks to guests at his parties.

The new lawsuit comes three months after Diddy settled a $30 million dollar lawsuit with Cassie after she accused him of rape, sex trafficking and domestic violence, NBC News reports. Diddy is facing several more lawsuits with similar accusations.

Jones’ new 73-page suit from names Diddy’s son Justin Combs, Lucian Grainge, Ethiopia Habtemariam, Kristina Khorram, Chalice Recording Studios, Love Records, Motown Records, Universal Music Group, and Combs Global Enterprises, per Complex.

Meanwhile, the suit describes a harrowing scene involving Diddy and his son Justin Combs. Here’s more from Complex:

In September 2022, Jones alleges a man identified in the lawsuit only as “G,” a friend of Diddy’s son Justin, was shot. During the alleged incident, Jones says he heard gunshots while “two feet away” from the restroom at Chalice Recording Studio in Los Angeles. When Diddy and Justin exited the restroom, Jones allegedly saw G suffering from gunshot wounds on the floor of the bathroom, at which point he offered assistance. Per Jones, Diddy “forced” him to lie to the authorities about the shooting, with police being told it was the result of a drive-by.

A rep for Justin told TMZ, “Justin Combs categorically denies these absurd allegations. They are all lies! This is a a clear example of a desperate person taking desperate measures in hopes of a pay day. There will be legal consequences for ALL defamatory statements made about the Combs family.”

Stevie J is also caught up in this mess, as Jones claims the music producer is the man in a sex tape getting it in with a white male. Jones claims Diddy showed him the footage and said it was Stevie in the video. Stevie denies this.

Jones included several screenshots to support his allegations against Diddy, including images from the sex tape, but an adult film star known as Knockout claims it’s him in the video, not Stevie J.
