Two men who visited P.Diddy at his Daddy’s House recording studio filed lawsuits Monday against the Bad Boy C.E.O. claiming security allegedly assaulted them, leaving one man unconscious.
The two men, Damon Jackson and Thomas Guest, are suing the rap mogul for $25 million each, according to the Associated Press. They claim the assault took place August 2002, after Jackson and Guest, a friend of Diddy, attempted to visit him at his Times Square recording home before being confronted by security.
The lawsuit claims, security “confronted plaintiff, threatened him and thereafter physically assaulted him, causing serious physical injuries and rendering him unconscious.” A separate lawsuits claims Jackson was also assaulted when attempting to aid Guest.
A spokeswoman for Puff, Susan Makarichev, said the lawsuits were “totally baseless” and “the allegations are ridiculous.”
P.Diddy has been riding the success of his re-launched Bad Boy empire with the chart-topping Bad Boys II soundtrack, which has been atop the Billboard 200 for three consecutive weeks. Next up, Diddy will serve as executive producer of Mary J. Blige’s sixth studio album, Love & Life, due in stores August 26.
