Diddy Hires Lawyer Who Defended Russian "Spy" Named In Election Tampering

Diddy is facing at least eight civil lawsuits. The latest addition to the pile of legal troubles is a lawsuit filed yesterday (May 30 Thursday) by Joi Dickerson-Neal.

Joi Dickerson-Neal accused Diddy of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 1991. According to her lawsuit, he recorded the incident and showed the footage to other people. It has been reported that Dickerson-Neal said the case is not “about money.”  The lawsuit was filed via the New York Supreme Court in November 2023 just days before statute of limitations

Producer Lil Rod initiated legal action against Diddy in February 2024, accusing him of sexual assault and related misconduct. The lawsuit painted Diddy as the head of a extensive and toxic sex trafficking enterprise. Lucian Grainge, CEO of Universal Music Group, was initially included as a defendant in the suit, but Lil Rod's lawyer later retracted the claims against Grainge in May.

Being that all of Diddy's bad behavior has caught the attention of the fed's. His accusers potentially could be telling their stories to a grand jury.
