Diddy Denies Gang Rape Claims, Says Accuser’s Lawsuit Violates His Constitutional Rights  


Diddy filed a response to a lawsuit bright by a Jane Doe accuser whole accused him of gang rape and sex trafficking her in 2003.

Diddy is denying he participated in the gang rape and sex trafficking of a 17-year-old girl in 2003. 

The Hip-Hop mogul challenged the allegations in new court documents filed Tuesday (February 20). He denied allegations against him and former Bad Boy Entertainment president Harve Pierre and an unidentified man, per Rolling Stone

In addition, Diddy argued the timing of the lawsuit violates his constitutional rights because the Jane Doe plaintiff waited so long to file her case. 

In her complaint, Jane Doe accuses Diddy and the two co-defendants of gang-raping and trafficking the woman in 2003. She claims they plied her with “copious amounts of drugs and alcohol” and took turns assaulting her at Diddy’s NYC recording studio, Daddy’s House.  

“While at the studio, Ms. Doe was gang raped by Mr. Combs, the Third Assailant and Mr. Pierre, in that order,” the complaint reads. 

“(Combs) never participated in, witnessed, or was or is presently aware of any misconduct, sexual or otherwise, relating to plaintiff in any circumstance whatsoever,” the filing reads. 

Diddy also disputed the “context, genuineness, and/or accuracy” of photographs submitted by Jane Doe. One such image allegedly features his accuser sitting on his lap at his recording studio. Diddy argued, “Plaintiff’s decision to wait more than two decades to file her complaint has prejudiced defendant, as he has lost the ability to defend himself fully and fairly in this action.”  

Diddy Claims Suit “Unconstitutional” 

The filing continued, “some or all evidence that otherwise would have been available if the action had been promptly commenced may be unavailable, lost, or compromised.” 

Diddy argued the lawsuit should be dismissed because it was filed under the Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Act (GMVA), which lawyers argued is purportedly “unconstitutional.” 

“Allowing this action to proceed violates defendant’s rights under the U.S. Constitution and the New York State Constitution.” 

According to the outlet, Harve Pierre also filed a response to the complaint in the Southern District of New York on Tuesday. He claims he “never participated in the sexual assault of the plaintiff nor did he ever witness anyone else sexually assaulting the plaintiff.” 

Additionally, Diddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment, who is also named in the suit, filed a motion to dismiss.
