Sean “Diddy” Combs, alongside his legal team, has taken decisive action in response to a lawsuit alleging sexual assault dating back to 2003.

Combs’ legal representatives filed a motion seeking dismissal of the lawsuit, decrying it as “an entirely false and hideous claim.”

The motion contends that the lawsuit was strategically timed and that its allegations are baseless and unsubstantiated.

According to the motion, the lawsuit exceeds the legal time frame for such claims, asserting that it should be dismissed to prevent further reputational harm to Combs and his enterprises.

The lawsuit, filed by a woman identified only as “Jane Doe,” alleges that Combs, along with Bad Boy Records executive Harvey Pierre and another individual, sexually assaulted her when she was 17.

“This stunt is intended to prominently showcase a baseless and time-barred claim, which was designed to cause the Combs Defendants unwanted publicity, embarrassment, and financial costs, so Plaintiff could extract an undeserved financial recovery from them,” the motion read.

Doe claims that she was trafficked across state lines and subsequently raped after being plied with drugs and alcohol.

Combs and his legal team vehemently deny the allegations, asserting that they have caused significant damage to their reputations.

The motion further challenges the credibility of the allegations, questioning the accuracy and specificity of the details provided.

Despite the motion to dismiss, Doe’s legal representatives maintain the validity of her claims. They label Combs’ response as a desperate attempt to evade accountability.

Combs is facing a barrage of civil suits, with multiple accusers alleging abuse and sexual assault spanning decades.

Several lawsuits have emerged under the purview of New York’s Adult Survivors Act. It allows victims to bring forth cases even after statutes of limitations have expired.

Federal investigators recently raided two properties linked to Combs as part of an ongoing sex trafficking inquiry.

The motion for dismissal underscores Combs’ continued denial of all allegations and his determination to protect his reputation and legacy.
