Diddy is hit with yet another sex trafficking lawsuit, this time by a former porn star alleging she was forced to have sex with people at his parties. Adria English says Combs threatened to blackball her and her model boyfriend if she didn’t comply.

In the latest lawsuit filed against disgraced music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, former adult film star Adria English alleges he “demanded” that she have sex with guests at Combs’ legendary White Parties in the Hamptons after he hired her as a “go-go dancer.”

Adria English, who says her stage name was Omunique, alleges in her filing that she met Diddy around 2004, when her boyfriend was auditioning for a modeling gig with Combs’ Sean John line. Right off the bat, English claims her boyfriend and another model were asked to perform oral sex on Diddy in order to get the job. Her boyfriend refused, but was later offered the job by another Diddy associate — as long as he ensured Adria would work as a “go-go dancer” at the musician’s upcoming White Party in the Hamptons.

English and her boyfriend agreed, and she worked as a dancer at the party that took place over Labor Day weekend in 2004; the lawsuit includes pictures of her at the event that confirm her presence. She subsequently worked as a dancer at other parties hosted by Diddy, where she says she “regularly” had to drink alcohol laced with narcotics “like ecstasy,” and was encouraged to flirt openly with guests.

After attending several parties as a dancer, English claims Diddy “groomed” her into sex trafficking, eventually demanding she have vaginal sex with Jacob Arabov, better known in hip-hop as Jacob the Jeweler, who is also listed as a defendant in the filing. According to the lawsuit, English had “forced sexual intercourse” with him, and was then paid an additional $1000 to what she was usually paid for dancing at Diddy’s parties.

From this point, Adria claims she was “passed off” to other guests at Diddy’s parties. Her lawsuit also names Tamiko Thomas as a defendant, a woman whom she accuses of facilitating Combs’ sex trafficking operation, described as the Ghislaine Maxwell to Diddy’s Jeffrey Epstein.

Also notable in the filing is the allegation that once she was forced into having sex with guests, English was provided a black dress to wear to the parties, rather than the white clothing she had worn previously and that other guests were wearing as was the theme of the party.

“Upon information and belief, [English] believes she was required to wear a black dress to the White Party to denote her capacity there as an employee, but more sinisterly as a sex trafficked sex worker,” the filing reads.

The lawsuit also alleges that Diddy promised to advance English’s career, including helping her join a girl group to get a foothold in the music business. But these promises were coupled with “forceful demands” and threats to blackball her and her boyfriend from the industry if she did not comply.

Combs’ attorney Jonathan Davis said in a statement to the press: “No matter how many lawsuits are filed, it won’t change the fact that Mr. Combs has never sexually assaulted or sex trafficked anyone. We live in a world where anyone can file a lawsuit for any reason and without any proof. Fortunately, a fair and impartial judicial process exists to find the truth, and Mr. Combs is confident he will prevail against these and other baseless claims in court.”

English’s lawsuit names as co-defendants Combs, his companies Bad Boy Entertainment, Sean John Clothing, and Combs Global Enterprises, as well as Tamiko Thomas, Jacob the Jeweler, Vibe Magazine, and Penske Media (parent company of Billboard), in addition to a couple dozen unnamed employees and individuals.
