Harve Pierre a longtime executive at his company Bad Boy Entertainment is being sued for allegedly grooming and sexually assaulting his assistant. The lawsuit arrives less than a week after Sean “Diddy” Combs was accused of rape and sex trafficking by R&B singer Cassie.

Harve Pierre, is accused of preying on the Jane Doe plaintiff “on multiple occasions in New York City and other locations throughout the country,” the complaint filed in New York County Supreme Court.

“Pierre used his position of authority as plaintiff’s boss to groom, exploit, and sexually assault her,” the filing alleges. “Pierre engaged in a year-long pattern of grooming plaintiff, leading to sexual harassment of plaintiff, and sexual assault.”

According to the suit, the accusations took place between 2106-2017. Jane Doe alleges Pierre sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions and she has since suffered physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.

The anonymous assistant is asking for damages that will “fully and fairly compensate” her.

The lawsuit also names Bad Boy Entertainment, Bad Boy Records, and Combs Enterprises as co-defendants, accusing the companies of negligence and gender violence.

“Defendants knew or should have known that Pierre was unfit to be in a position of authority before Pierre sexually assaulted plaintiff,” the lawsuit states. It claims the companies failed to “properly supervise” Pierre, especially considering his access to “individuals like plaintiff.”

According to Rolling Stone, a Bad Boy spokesperson “we have recently become aware of a lawsuit filed in New York by a former employee. The allegations are from many years ago that were never brought to the attention of the company. Neither the plaintiff nor the executive are current employees of the company. We are now investigating the allegations, and our top priority is the safety and well-being of our employees.”
