Amid the several pending sexual assault lawsuits and accusations against Sean "Puffy" Combs, music producer Rodney Jones Jr. is one of the most recent people to bring forth a suit against the mogul. According to Pitchfork, Sean "Diddy" Combs has been sued by music producer Rodney Jones Jr., also known as Lil Rod, who accuses him of sexual assault, grooming, and improper payment for his work as a producer on The Love Album: Off the Grid, among other claims. Jones filed the lawsuit yesterday, according to The New York Times.

According to the graphic, 73-page lawsuit, Jones lived with the hip-hop mogul for months while working on the album. Jones accuses Diddy of grabbing his genitals without consent, forcing him to hire prostitutes and participate in sex acts with them, and trying to "groom" him into having sex with another man, with Diddy allegedly telling him that it was "a normal practice in the music industry." The lawsuit claims that Diddy maintained control over Jones by promising awards, fame, and access to high-level record executives, as reported by Pitchfork.

Diddy's attorney, Shawn Holley, shared a statement with Pitchfork, denying the accusations, saying, "Lil Rod is nothing more than a liar who filed a $30 million lawsuit shamelessly looking for an undeserved payday. His reckless name-dropping about events that are pure fiction and simply did not happen is nothing more than a transparent attempt to garner headlines. We have overwhelming, indisputable proof that his claims are complete lies. Our attempts to share this proof with Mr. Jones' attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, have been ignored, as Mr. Blackburn refuses to return our calls. We will address these outlandish allegations in court and take all appropriate action against those who make them."

During the week of the Grammys, Rodney shared a video post of Diddy with the following message on Instagram, "Y'all celebrating Grammy week. I'm currently nominated on an album I produced at least 9 songs. I should be celebrating but I'm currently quietly fighting for my publishing for months. I took a year straight off todo work on this album and I'm definitely not being showed Love."

According to the Source, Diddy's son, Justin Combs, a former UCLA football player, is also mentioned in the lawsuit, which referred to Justin as a recruiter for underage girls and prostitutes. He also stated Diddy and his son engaged in an intense argument, which led to gunfire. According to TMZ, a man named G was shot in the stomach. Jones states Diddy told the man to lie about the incident and say he was injured in a drive-by.

This is the fifth time Diddy has been sued for sexual misconduct in recent times. The former Bad Boy Records music executive recently settled a lawsuit with his former girlfriend, Cassie Venture, for an undisclosed amount for sexual assault and other claims. Along with losing different business ventures, the Hulu network canceled the entertainer's upcoming reality show featuring work and family life with him and his children.
