Trouble for Sean “Diddy” Combs unending, Crystal McKinney, Former model sues him, claiming he drugged, sexually assaulted her in 2003

Trouble for the embattled music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs is not ending.

Diddy is facing a slew of lawsuits, and the latest in the list has been filed by a former model who accuses Combs of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2003.

Crystal McKinney, a former model, filed a lawsuit against Sean “Diddy” Combs in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday.

Former Model Crystal McKinney Sues Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Alleging 2003 Assault

The lawsuit alleges that Diddy, then 34, assaulted the 22-year-old model at his New York City studio in 2003 and forced her to perform oral sex.

McKinney also alleges that the hip-hop icon destroyed her career by having her “blackballed” in the modeling industry, despite earlier promising to help her professionally.

The lawsuit alleges that the ordeal precipitated a decline in McKinney’s mental well-being, leading to bouts of depression, body image problems, feelings of worthlessness, and intimacy issues.

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, 54, is facing multiple sexual assault lawsuits that accuse the hip-hop star of raping and assaulting multiple women over the past decades.

Homeland Security Investigations agents raided his Los Angeles home in connection with an ongoing sex trafficking investigation in New York.

McKinney describes herself as a woman of faith and reiterates that it is her moral obligation to come forward with her experience after seeing media coverage of Diddy’s legal woes.

The lawsuit by McKinney reads,

“Prayed to God before bringing this lawsuit, as she feared further violence and/or retaliation from Defendant Combs, but ultimately decided that she needed to speak her truth. She seeks justice for herself and other alleged victims of Combs.”

The lawsuit also names Combs’ companies Bad Boy Records, Sean John Clothing, and Universal Music Group as defendants in the case.

McKinney in her lawsuit detailed the incident and revealed that she met Combs after being invited to a Men’s Fashion Week event at New York City restaurant Cipriani Downtown by an unnamed fashion designer.

After dinner, Diddy made a sexually suggestive public display towards McKinney and repeatedly refilled her glass with wine. McKinney also revealed that the music mogul assured her that he would advance her career and gave McKinney his phone number in good faith.

Earlier, McKinney won MTV’s Model Mission contest in 1998 and had previously modeled for Tommy Hilfiger.

Later that night, Combs invited McKinney to his studio where she smoked marijuana with the rapper and his associates. McKinney also alleged that the marijuana joint was laced with a narcotic or another intoxicating substance.

Later, Combs led McKinney to the bathroom, forced himself upon her without her consent, and later shoved her head down to his crotch and forced her to perform oral sex. McKinney later stated that she started feeling dizzy, passed out, and later found herself in a cab which went back to the fashion designer’s apartment.

Later, McKinney alleged that Combs sabotaged her career and her assignments started to dwindle and then stopped altogether.

The lawsuit was filed under New York’s Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Law, which provides a two-year look-back window for survivors of sexually motivated violence to seek legal remedy against their abusers, regardless of when the abuse took place.
