Diddy Faces New Lawsuit: Former Model Crystal McKinney Claims Drugging and Sexual Assault

Sean “Diddy” Combs is again in the legal crosshairs as another lawsuit emerges against the disgraced music mogul. Former model Crystal McKinney has filed a suit claiming Combs lured her with promises of career advancement, only to subject her to a harrowing ordeal.

According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, McKinney, then 22, was invited to a Men’s Fashion Week event at Cipriani Downtown in NYC in 2003. She recounts meeting Combs at the event, inviting her to his studio. Shortly after arriving, McKinney claims that Combs and several colleagues were consuming Hennessy and smoking joints. When she took a hit from a joint, she felt an immediate and intense effect, suspecting it had been laced with an unknown drug.

McKinney claims that Combs then coerced her into a bathroom, where he allegedly forced himself on her. She describes a terrifying encounter where he began kissing her and forcibly pushed her head towards his crotch, demanding oral sex. Despite her initial refusal, she alleges Combs overpowered her, forcing her to comply.

Following this incident, McKinney says she attempted to leave but soon felt dizzy and lost consciousness. She awoke in a taxi, disoriented, and realized she had been sexually assaulted. The lawsuit does not specify whether this refers solely to the forced oral sex or another act that might have occurred while she was unconscious.

The aftermath of this alleged incident was devastating for McKinney. She claims she was blackballed from the modeling industry, spiraling into severe depression which led to a suicide attempt in 2004.

McKinney states that recent news of lawsuits filed by other women, including Cassie, against Combs, prompted her to come forward. “I knew I had a moral obligation to speak up,” she says.

This lawsuit adds to the growing list of accusations against Combs, who has faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse. His representatives have not yet commented on McKinney’s claims. As these legal battles unfold, the scrutiny on Combs intensifies, casting a shadow over his once-celebrated career.
