Music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs faces yet another legal challenge as producer Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones filed a lawsuit on Monday in a New York federal court, accusing Combs of sexual harassment and trafficking.

Jones alleges that while working for Combs on his latest album under Bad Boy Records, he was coerced into performing sexual acts and procuring sex workers for Combs for over a year, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

According to Jones, Combs' misconduct extended to forcibly touching him and even drugging him, leading to incidents where Jones woke up disoriented and in compromising situations.

Responding to the allegations, Shawn Holley, Combs' lawyer, labeled the lawsuit as "pure fiction," emphasizing that there is substantial evidence proving the claims to be false.

This lawsuit marks the latest in a series of legal actions against Combs, following a previous sexual assault lawsuit filed by his former longtime partner, Cassie.

In November, Cassie accused Combs of repeated rape and physical abuse over nearly a decade.

Combs has denied these allegations, which have also been made by other individuals, including an unidentified woman who was a minor at the time of the alleged assault and Joi Dickerson-Neal, who appeared briefly in one of Combs' music videos.

The complaint filed by Jones implicates not only Combs but also several other individuals and entities, including Combs' chief of staff, his son, Universal Music Group CEO Sir Lucian Grainge, former Motown Records CEO Ethiopia Habtemariam, and Combs Enterprises.

They are accused of conspiring with Combs and profiting from his alleged crimes through a RICO enterprise, likened to organized crime.

Allegations outlined in the complaint span assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and violations of sex trafficking laws, among others. Jones seeks at least $30 million in damages.
