A woman sued Diddy for allegedly firing her for being pregnant.
According to TMZ, a nanny identified as Jane Roe claimed the Hip Hop mogul fired her after she requested maternity leave. She recalled his reps telling her that she “set a bad example” for his daughters because she got pregnant outside of marriage.
Jane Roe, who claims to be Kim Porter’s niece, said she became the full-time nanny for Diddy’s twins D’Lila and Jessie after Porter died in November 2018.
Porter was the mother of the twins. She and the Bad Boy Records founder had an off-and-on relationship, which began in the ‘90s.
Diddy reportedly asked the nanny to live in his estate following Porter’s death. Jane Roe was “responsible for the twins’ 24/7 care.”
The nanny asked for maternity leave after getting pregnant in August 2020. Diddy was allegedly “infuriated” and canned her around the time her sabbatical was supposed to begin.
Jane Roe filed her wrongful termination lawsuit against Diddy and Tri Star Sports, among others. She’s seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.
A spokesperson for Diddy reached out to AllHipHop and denied all of the allegations against him.
“This lawsuit is a meritless shakedown to extort money from Mr. Combs,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “Raven is not the niece of Kim Porter as she falsely alleges; nor is there any legal basis for this case to be filed under the anonymity as a ‘Jane Doe.’ Raven was a part-time babysitter to the twins who Mr. Combs kept on the job back in 2018 to provide continuity for the twins following the untimely death of their mother.”
The statement continued, “Mr. Combs graciously permitted Raven to live in his home with her son and treated them like ‘family.’ Her babysitting services were always intended to be temporary especially since the girls were getting older and spending most of the day at school. In fact, Raven’s transition out of her role was planned and agreed to by her long before she even mentioned that she was pregnant. Mr. Combs will take swift and immediate action to protect his family against these false claims.”
