Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit alleging he and two other men raped a 17-year-old girl in 2003, claiming the ‘decades-old narrative’ was filed too late.

On Friday, May 10, Sean “Diddy” Combs asked a federal judge to dismiss a complaint alleging that he and two co-defendants raped a 17-year-old in 2003. The music mogul and his legal team dismissed the “false and hideous claim,” noting that the “decades-old tale” was filed outside of the statute of limitations.

The filing marks Diddy’s latest legal fight amid a slew of similar sexual assault claims, not to mention the FBI probe into sex-trafficking charges, which led in raids on his Los Angeles and Miami mansions.

“Mr. Combs and his companies categorically deny Plaintiff’s decades-old tale against them, which has caused incalculable damage to their reputations and business standing before any evidence has been presented,” according to the lawsuit. “Plaintiff cannot allege what day or time of year the alleged incident occurred, yet purports to miraculously recall the most prurient details with specificity.”

The brief requests that the action be dismissed with prejudice, which means it cannot be refiled, “to protect the Combs Defendants from further reputational injury and before more party and judicial resources are squandered.”

Michael J. Willemin, an attorney for the Jane Doe plaintiff, released a statement in reaction to the filing. “At this time, no one should take ‘Diddy’ or his lawyers’ statements seriously. Today’s motion is Combs’ desperate attempt to dodge accountability for Ms. Doe’s allegations of gang rape and sexual abuse. “It will not work.”

Jane Doe’s case was filed in December and amended in March to state that she was in the eleventh grade of high school in 2003. Then she said that Harve Pierre, the then-president of Combs’ Bad Boy Entertainment division, flew her to New York City on a private aircraft and took her to a recording studio. According to the lawsuit, she was given drugs and booze until she couldn’t consent, and then raped by Combs, Pierre, and a third man she didn’t know.

Despite Combs and his team’s insistence that the case should be dismissed entirely, the woman’s willingness to expose her name is the most significant barrier to the lawsuit’s progress. Regardless of the plaintiff’s desire to remain anonymous, the judge has ordered that she must give her name for the lawsuit to proceed.

Many of the lawsuits filed against Combs — and other celebrities facing similar allegations — were filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which temporarily extended certain legal deadlines to allow sexual assault victims to seek justice for abuse that occurred several years ago.
