A female employee
of Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' Sean John clothing company filed a sexual
harassment lawsuit yesterday, claiming that her immediate supervisor made inappropriate
sexual jokes only a month after she hired as a full-time employee. According
to the female employee, her supervisor made various disparaging remarks in front
of other employee's and allegedly simulated an oral sex act in front of other
workers. Combs is not named in the lawsuit and a spokesperson for Combs brushed
the allegations off. "No allegations were made against Mr. Combs,"
Combs' rep told the New York Post. "This is a merit less case by an employee
who was at the company less than two months and where the EEOC [federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] declined to pursue her case."
