Sean “Diddy” Combs has been hit with a third lawsuit alleging sexual assault under the Adult Survivors Act.

The new complaint from an anonymous accuser alleges Combs and singer-songwriter Aaron Hall took turns raping the plaintiff and her friend in 1990 or 1991, and that Diddy turned violent during a rage days later.

First reported by Rolling Stone, Jane Doe alleges that she and her friend met Diddy and Hall at an event hosted by MCA Records, the distributor of Uptown Records, at the company’s offices in New York. The lawsuit filing obtained by Rolling Stone reads, “Combs and Hall were very flirtatious and handsy with Jane Doe and her friend, offering them drinks throughout the night.”

Combs and Hall then allegedly invited the women back to Hall’s apartment for an afterparty. The filing claims, “While at Hall’s apartment, Jane Doe was offered more drinks and was coerced into having sex with Combs, and after Combs finished doing his business, Jane Doe laid in bed, shocked and traumatised. As she was in the process of getting dressed, Hall barged into the room, pinned her down and forced Jane Doe to have sex with him.”

The complaint says further that Jane Doe quickly got dressed and fled from Hall’s residence after the alleged rape. It alleges that she later spoke to her friend and learned that the other woman also “had been forced to have sex with Combs and Hall in another room.”

A couple of days after the alleged assaults, Combs allegedly visited the home where Jane Doe and her friend were staying and turned violent.

The complaint alleges: “He was irate and began assaulting and choking Jane Doe to the point that she passed out.”

Alongside Hall and Combs, the suit names MCA Music Entertainment and Geffen Records as defendants.
