Sean “Diddy” Combs is at the center of yet another legal summons filed under the New York Adult Survivors Act. Filed on Wednesday, November 22, the latest legal summons concerning Combs alleges he drugged and later sexually assaulted a woman by the name of Joi Dickerson-Neal.
“Plaintiff brings suit against Defendants to redress the substantial and lifetime injuries she has suffered as a result of being drugged, sexually assaulted and abused, and being the victim of ‘revenge porn’ that Sean Combs or ‘P. Diddy’ created and distributed,” the civil lawsuit reads.
The particulars of the civil lawsuit place Combs and Dickerson-Neal in the year 1991. While attending Syracuse University, the plaintiff says she starred in one of the mogul’s music videos. Later on, Dickerson-Neal says she and the music mogul went on a dinner date in Harlem. During the encounter, she says the chart-topping producer “intentionally drugged” her and left her “in a physical state where she could not independently stand or walk.”
“Driving first to a music studio where she could not get out of the car, Combs proceeded to a place he was staying to sexually assault her,” the civil lawsuit alleges.
“Because she had been drugged, Plaintiff lacked the physical ability or mental capacity to fend Combs off.”
A spokesperson for the music mogul has denounced the lawsuit, calling it “made up,” “not credible” and “a money grab.”
“This last-minute lawsuit is an example of how a well-intentioned law can be turned on its head,” a spokesperson for the famed producer said.
“Mr. Combs never assaulted her, and she implicates companies that did not exist.”
