Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones claims he was the victim of unwanted sexual groping and touching while working for the rapper on his latest album, writes

This is the fifth sexual assault lawsuit against Combs.

Responding to the lawsuit filed in a New York court, a lawyer for the artist stated that it is “pure fiction”.

Combs' attorney, Shawn Holley, added: “We have overwhelming and irrefutable evidence that his claims are complete lies. We will address these outlandish claims in court and take all appropriate action against those who make them.”

According to court documents, the music producer lived and traveled with Combs between September 2022 and November 2023.

His lawyers say he was drugged and “he remembers waking up undressed, dizzy and confused. He was in bed with two sex workers and Mr Combs.”

Jones also claims in his lawsuit that the rapper “he was grooming him to pass him off as his friend” and that “is involved in serious illegal activities”.

Included in the lawsuit were several photos from parties at Combs' house. Court documents claim the photos include underage girls and sex workers who were allegedly supplied with drugs.

Other defendants named in the suit include Combs' son Justin, his chief of staff Kristina Khorram, Universal Music Group chief executive Sir Lucian Grainge and former Motown Records chief executive Ethiopia Habtemariam.

The lawsuit alleges that Grainge, Habtemariam, Motown Records, Love Records and Universal Music Group “did not adequately monitor, warn or supervise” the actions of Mr. Combs, his son and his chief of staff.

A rep for Justin Combs told TMZ that “they are only lies” and that this is a “clear example of a desperate person taking desperate measures in the hope of a payday”.

Jones is asking for $30 million.

The legal case is the fifth such action against Combs.

The 54-year-old artist's ex-girlfriend Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura sued in November, claiming the record label executive raped her in 2018 and subjected her to years of sexual and physical abuse.

The musicians settled the lawsuit two days later. “I have decided to resolve this matter amicably, in terms where I have some level of control.” Ventura said in a statement.

Four other accusers have now filed lawsuits against him.

One of them claimed that Combs drugged and sexually assaulted her and then showed others videos of the assault, while another woman claimed that Combs and another man took turns raping her and her friend in the early 1990s.

Combs has denied all the allegations against him, and in December said: “Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the horrible things that are accused. I will fight for my name, for my family and for the truth.”
