Sex Trafficking, Minors, Drugs: Combing Through The Lawsuit Against Sean “Diddy” Combs

Sean “Diddy” Combs, the renowned rapper and music mogul, finds himself entangled in a series of civil lawsuits accusing him of grave allegations including sex trafficking, sexual abuse, and rape.

Formerly known as Puff Daddy and P. Diddy among other monikers, Combs, 54, has undergone numerous reinventions over the years. However, the recent turn of events ushers in a new and unwelcome era for the influential figure.

The storm began when federal agents from the US Homeland Security conducted raids on two of Combs’ residences situated in Los Angeles and Miami on Monday. These actions coincided with a flurry of accusations leveled against the rapper, ranging from sexual misconduct to coercive practices.

Combs vehemently denies all allegations, with his legal representatives dismissing the lawsuits as baseless money-grabbing attempts. Despite the mounting legal pressure, federal prosecutors have not formally charged Combs with any criminal offense.

Drugs, underaged girls, and sex workers

The latest lawsuit, filed on February 26, 2024, in New York, was brought forth by producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones. Jones alleges being subjected to unwanted advances orchestrated by Combs’ associates and coerced into engaging in sexual encounters.

Among the accusations detailed in the lawsuits are claims that Combs hosted “sex-trafficking parties” involving underage individuals and illicit substances.

He further claims to possess incriminating video and audio evidence implicating Combs and his entourage in illicit activities including, “the acquisition, use, and distribution of ecstasy, cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, and mushrooms”, “Combs providing laced alcoholic beverages to minors and sex workers”, and Combs’ son Christian “drugging and sexually assaulting a woman”.

Jones also alleges that he has evidence of actor Cuba Gooding Jr. “sexually harassing and assaulting” him.

Chalice Recording Studios shooting

Jones also talked about the shooting incident that unfolded at a writers and producers camp hosted by Combs back in September 2022 at Chalice Recording Studio in Los Angeles, California. Aside from him and Combs, his son Justin Combs and a friend identified as “G” were also there.

According to accounts gathered by Jones, a heated conversation involving Combs, Justin, and G escalated to the point where gunshots rang out. Jones, who was only a few feet away, recounted the terrifying moment when the shots were fired, plunging him into a state of shock and fear for his own safety.

“After the shooting ended, a crowd gathered around the restroom. When the door finally opened, Mr. Combs and J. Combs exited. G was lying on the restroom floor in a fetal position, holding his stomach and bleeding out of his leg/hip area,” the lawsuit detailed.

Witnesses, including Jones, rushed to his aid, applying pressure to his wounds and calling for medical assistance.

However, the aftermath of the incident raised troubling questions. Combs allegedly instructed those present to fabricate a story for law enforcement, falsely claiming that G had been shot in a drive-by attack outside the studio.

Moreover, concerns have been raised about the security measures in place at the camp. Despite private security provided by Combs and other entities, the presence of firearms and the subsequent shooting point to a failure to ensure the safety of attendees.

Firearms were allegedly discovered by federal agents during the searches conducted at Combs’ properties on Monday.

Jones said he has “the clothing he wore that day and believes it may still have the stains and DNA of G’s blood.”

“Sean will be Sean”

Jones also alleged that Combs sexually harassed and assaulted him, with allegations of constant unsolicited and unauthorized groping and touching of his anus by Combs throughout his tenure living with the music mogul.

In addition to the unwanted advances, Jones alleges that he was coerced into uncomfortable situations, including being forced to work in Combs’ bathroom while the latter showered in a clear glass enclosure, exposing himself naked. Jones, a heterosexual Christian man, expressed his discomfort with Combs’ behavior to Kristina Khorram.

Jones said that Khorram responded to his complaint with, “you know, Sean will be Sean.”

He also claimed that Combs exploited Jones’ admiration for music producer Steven Aaron Jordan, commonly known as “Stevie J,” to manipulate him into engaging in homosexuality. Stevie J, an accomplished DJ, record producer, and television personality, rose to prominence as part of the Bad Boy Records production team, the Hitmen. He garnered acclaim, including a Grammy Award in 1997 for his work on Puff Daddy’s debut album.

According to Jones, Combs allegedly used his access to Stevie J and knowledge of Mr. Jones’ admiration for him to coerce him into homosexual acts. Combs purportedly went as far as sharing explicit videos with Jones, including one depicting Stevie J engaging in unprotected anal intercourse, in an attempt to normalize homosexuality and alleviate Jones’ anxieties.

Furthermore, Jones alleges that Combs boasted of his own sexual encounters with prominent figures in the music industry, including undisclosed rappers, R&B singers, and Stevie J himself. Combs allegedly dangled promises of professional accolades, such as ensuring Jones won Producer of the Year at the Grammys, in exchange for compliance with his demands.

“Booby Trap on the River” and soliciting minor sex workers

Furthermore, Jones said his time with Combs was also marred by forced transportation to various locations, including California, New York, Florida, and the United States Virgin Islands. During these travels, Jones alleges that he was compelled to solicit sex workers and engage in sexual acts to satisfy Combs’ desires.

In one instance, Jones asserts that he was drugged and woke up naked and disoriented in bed with two sex workers and Combs himself. Another incident allegedly occurred on Thanksgiving night of 2022, when Combs pressured Jones and another individual to engage in drug use in a studio bathroom.

Further allegations include Combs coercing Jones into soliciting sex workers from a specific establishment in Miami, Florida named Booby Trap on the River, using intimidation tactics and promises of professional rewards. Jones claims he was provided with a Bad Boy baseball cap as a signal to the sex workers that Combs had sent him.

Moreover, Jones alleges that Combs used a combination of promises and threats to maintain control over him. Promises of Grammy awards, financial incentives, and property ownership were juxtaposed with threats of physical harm, including graphic threats of violence towards Jones and his family.

In a so-called listening party on or about July 2, 2023, at Combs’ house, he requested female sex workers and required Jones to solicit them. In addition to sex workers, there were at least five women in the crowd that were under the age of sixteen, the lawsuit alleges.

Combs allegedly forced the women to drink liquor laced with ecstasy, and did not check the identification of any of these underage girls.

Reports from individuals living in proximity to Combs’ properties provide anecdotal evidence suggesting unusual activities, including gatherings lasting until the early hours. Such testimonies contribute to the growing scrutiny surrounding Combs’ lifestyle and conduct.

Khorram is Maxwell to Combs’ Epstein

During the thirteen months he spent living and traveling with Combs, Jones claims to have witnessed alarming behavior, including the open display and distribution of firearms by Combs himself from his bedroom closet in Miami, Florida, and Los Angeles, California.

Additionally, Khorram is accused of orchestrating a network of drug distribution, openly ordering her assistants to keep Combs “high” with various substances, including marijuana gummies, ecstasy, and cocaine.

According to Jones, Combs’ chief of staff enforced a strict regime where all staff members, from butlers to housekeepers, carried pouches filled with drugs at all times to ensure Combs’ immediate access to his preferred narcotics. Furthermore, Khorram allegedly arranged for the procurement and distribution of drugs and sex workers to fulfill Combs’ desires.

The extent of Khorram’s involvement in the alleged criminal enterprise is underscored by her role in organizing tasks for various individuals, including Stevie J and Justin Combs, who were reportedly tasked with recruiting sex workers and soliciting prostitutes and underage girls.

Moreover, Combs is accused of leveraging his connections with local gangs to obtain and distribute drugs and firearms, further implicating him in the illicit activities described.

Jones’ lawsuit counts 15 charges of various degrees including allegations of sex trafficking, sexual assault, security negligence, infliction of emotional distress, and racketeering.

Where is Combs?

The spate of legal actions against Combs traces back to November 2023 when his former partner, Casandra “Cassie” Ventura, filed a lawsuit alleging rape and abuse. Ventura’s claims, settled swiftly for an undisclosed sum, set a precedent for subsequent litigations against Combs.

Ben Brafman, counsel for Combs, asserted that the decision to settle “is in no way an admission of wrongdoing.”

These lawsuits, facilitated by legislative measures like the New York Adult Survivors Act, provide a platform for survivors of sexual assault to seek recourse regardless of statutory limitations. Combs, along with other prominent figures in entertainment, has become a focal point of such legal initiatives.

As the legal battle intensifies, Combs remains resolute in his denial of the allegations, vowing to “fight for my name, my family and for the truth.” His legal team, echoing his sentiments, denounces the accusations as “pure fiction” and pledges to contest them vigorously through legal channels.

Speculation surrounding the whereabouts of Combs has surged following raids on Monday. Reports indicate that a private jet linked to Combs, a black 20-seat Gulfstream Aerospace GV-SP registered to LoveAir LLC, was removed from a flight tracking website on Tuesday. TMZ reported that the jet was seen on the ground in Antigua shortly after the raids, but it remains unconfirmed whether Combs was aboard.

Flight data revealed the jet’s movements across California on Sunday and Monday, departing from Sacramento Executive Airport and landing at Palm Springs International Airport before traveling to Van Nuys Airport, then finally landing in Antigua. However, flight data became unavailable on Tuesday, with a statement on stating that tracking for the aircraft was restricted at the owner/operator’s request.
