Sean “Diddy Combs” was sued on Wednesday by an adult film actress who claimed that the producer had groomed her into sex trafficking while she worked at his annual Labor Day white party.

In the lawsuit, Adria English claimed that she was “required to” take narcotics when initially employed by Combs back in 2004, because “white party guests” offered them. She claimed Combs had “laced” the liquor with ecstasy and that she was given strict instructions as to which bottles to drink.

English alleged that Combs and Tamika Thomas, aka “Jacob the Jeweler”, were involved in sex trafficking between 2004 and 2009. This is the 10th suit filed against Combs since November.

Combs’s legal team has denied the allegations.

Jonathan Davis, Combs’ lawyer, stated in a press release that “no matter how many lawsuits were filed, it will not change the fact Mr. Combs never sexually abused or sex-trafficked anyone.” In today’s world, anyone can sue for any reason without proof. “Fortunately, there is a fair and neutral judicial process to determine the truth. Mr. Combs believes he will win against these and any other baseless allegations in court.”

Documents state that “despite being forced to consume copious amounts alcohol and illicit narcotics,” the experiences Plaintiff endured were so painful, that they haunted her even today.

“The first Labor Day ‘White Party’ of 2004 was a legitimate job opportunity, with no sinister intent. It did not require physical sexual contact, and it seemed like a legitimate opportunity. So, when Plaintiff accepted an offer to work at this party in subsequent years, she accepted.”

Documents stated that “Defendant Thomas & Combs groomed Plaintiff over time into sex trafficking.”

English claimed that Combs had “demanded”, she “begin engaging vaginal sexual relations with guests” after learning about her previous work in adult entertainment. They used this information to forcefully coerce the plaintiff into sex work.

English claimed that she “could not recall details of the Miami “White Parties” due to increased demands that Plaintiff engage illicit drugs and alcohol while employed by Defendant Combs.”

Combs has also been sued by Liza Gardner and Jane Doe. Crystal McKinney is also suing Combs, as well as music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones. Combs denies each claim.

Homeland Security Investigation officials raided Combs’ Los Angeles and Miami homes in March as part of a federal investigation into human trafficking. Combs’s identity as the target of the federal investigation is not clear.

Aaron Dyer was Combs’ lawyer at the time and he called the raids “a gross overuse of military-level force”.
