2nd Suit In A Week For Diddy
October 10, 2007 at 5:38 AM (PT)
A hip-hop promoter has filed a $5 million lawsuit against SEAN "DIDDY" COMBS, claiming the rap mogul unleashed three violent bodyguards on him in a NEW YORK CITY nightclub. The lawsuit claimes JAMES WALDON, 27, spoke to COMBS in THE BOX and then one bodyguard punched him in the mouth, knocking him backward onto a table, and two others began hitting and kicking him continuously.
WALDON rolled off the table and was chased around the club by the bodyguards before escaping. The beating left WALDON with numerous injuries, including mouth and teeth problems, according to court papers.
COMBS' lawyer, JONATHAN D. DAVIS, said he was aware of the lawsuit, but had not seen the papers and could not comment.
WALDON's lawsuit also names three "JOHN DOES" (the three bodyguards) and the nightclub in the suit. WALDON's lawsuit was at least the second against COMBS in less than a week (NET NEWS 10/8). A former consultant for COMBS' BAD BOY ENTERTAINMENT sued the entrepreneur for $19 million last week in MIAMI, claiming COMBS owed him for the use of audio and video music footage by the late NOTORIOUS B.I.G.
