Diddy Gets Sued Over Alleged Oscar Fight


"Diddy" Combs is being sued by a man who claims the Bad Boy CEO "unlawfully

attacked, assaulted and battered" him during a post-Oscar party last week

in Hollywood, CA. In

a lawsuit filed Mar. 2 in Los Angeles and obtained by tmz.com, Gerald Rechnitzer,

27, claims he was at Teddy's nightclub at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with

his girlfriend, after the Academy Awards. Rechnitzer

alleges that he returned from the restroom, he saw his girlfriend speaking with

Combs, who was surrounded by six bodyguards.According

to the lawsuit, Rechnitzer asked his girlfriend to leave with him and Combs allegedly

responded "what the f**k you looking at dude?'" Combs

then allegedly followed up by yelling, "I'll smack flames out of your ass!"The

lawsuit claims Combs then punched Rechnitzer in the jaw, him to fly backwards."At

no time was Plaintiff, who is five feet, seven inches tall with a slim build,

ever a threat to Defendant...." Rechnitzer's attorney said.The

suit alleges "after attacking Plaintiff, Defendant Combs intentionally, willfully

and knowingly pushed Plaintiff's girlfriend and attempted to spit on another female

member of Plaintiff's group."As

Combs was leaving the scene, the lawsuit claims the mogul "stuck the upper

half of his body through an open passenger window of his vehicle and stared plaintiff

down in a threatening and menacing manner thereby causing plaintiff to fear for

his safety and the safety of his girlfriend." The

lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.The

LAPD said they are investigating the allegations against Combs and interviewing

witnesses. A

representative for Combs refused to comment.
