Former Friend Proceeds with Diddy Lawsuit

Despite reports of a resolution, Sean "Diddy" Combs may remain at the center of an assault rap from a man the Hip-Hop mogul allegedly punched in the face over the weekend.Steven Acevedo confirmed to The New York Post that he still plans on taking the Combs to court over the incident, which stemmed from a heated exchange between the two men around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday (Oct. 13) at Upstairs nightclub, not at Kiosk as originally reported.When asked if Acevedo planned on dropping the charges, he ran his finger across his neck and said "definitely not."According to reports, Combs and Acevedo argued once during the evening and continued to argue after being separated during the earlier skirmish.The men clashed again as Combs allegedly screamed "I'll kill you, punk!" and punched Acevedo twice in the face, bloodying his nose and giving him a fat lip.Acevedo, who works in the clothing business, told police he then saw one of Comb's bodyguards lift his shirt as if to signal that he had a gun.Acevedo then left and filed a police report. Although police sources cite a woman Diddy escorted to the Cannes Film Festival last summer and that Acevedo had dated as the reason for the dispute, other sources said the fight stemmed from another issue, but did not know what it was.In the meanwhile, efforts to question Combs have been a challenge as prosecutors and detectives met Tuesday (Oct. 16) to discuss how to proceed with the case. The music executive was a no-show for a scheduled meeting with detectives at the 1st Precinct station house Tuesday afternoon.Acevedo and Combs made headlines once again, when footage of the two men meeting at New York club Butter surfaced on are being contacted to be questioned about the incident, while police are reviewing surveillance cameras to see if the alleged assault was captured on tape."We hope this matter will be resolved without the filing of any criminal charges as it was a disagreement among acquaintances, not a criminal assault," said Combs' attorney, Benjamin Brafman.
