Update: Woman Suing Diddy & Aaron Hall For Rape Files Amended Complaint Alleging She Was Only 16 When The Incident Occurred

Update: (Mar. 13, 2024): New details have surfaced surrounding one of the sexual assault lawsuits Diddy is facing.

As previously reported, In November, a woman named Liza Gardner filed a lawsuit under the Adult Survivor’s Act claiming Diddy and singer Aaron Hall raped her following an event hosted by MCA Records in the early ’90s. At the time of her initial filing, the woman didn’t reveal how old she was when the alleged incident happened.

However, on Tuesday (Mar. 12) the purported victim filed an amended complaint, claiming she was 16 years old on the night Diddy and Aaron Hall allegedly took turns raping her. According to a report from Rolling Stone, Gardner also “has a letter from her therapist and an affidavit from a friend stating that she recounted the alleged assault during conversations in 2014 and 2019, respectively.”

The therapist allegedly detailed in a letter excerpted in the amended complaint,

“As my records indicate on 2/18/2014, my client disclosed that she was raped by two males in New York when she was 16 years of age. It is my professional opinion that the trauma of being raped by two men accounted for much of her ongoing symptoms of hypervigilance, anxiety, panic attacks, and episodes of depression, all, symptoms indicative of PTSD.”

The full statements from the third parties will be disclosed during the discovery process of the case. In addition, the newly filed amended claimed that the previously unidentified musicians who brought her to the MCA party were her “close friends,” members of the R&B group Jodeci. Reportedly, Diddy was assigned to help develop Jodeci while at MCA’s Uptown Records.


Original Story: (Nov. 24, 2023): Famed musician Diddy is at the center of two new sexual assault lawsuits.

Reportedly, the music artist is accused of several violent sex crimes that involve drugs, rape, “revenge porn”, and his colleague Aaron Hall.

According to reports, the woman’s account of the alleged crimes were recently filed right before the deadline of the Adult Survivor’s Act. As we’ve previously covered, the New York legislation allowed victims of past sexual assault to file civil suits against their aggressors, which normally would be outside of the statute of limitations. Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has already been in the spotlight due to his ex and former longtime partner Cassie filing a shocking domestic violence and sexual abuse lawsuit against him and is once again being sued for more alleged sex crimes.

In one of the cases, a woman named Joie Dickerson-Neal says she was drugged by the hip hop icon back in 1991. She explained in the suit that while on winter break from Syracuse University, she accompanied Combs on a date where she was “intentionally drugged” after leaving her drink unattended. She says the two went to a music studio, but after being unable to walk or stand, Combs escorted her back to the residence he was staying at and proceeded to rape her.

Dickerson-Neal went on to claim that Jodeci member DeVanté Swing, who was allegedly her friend at the time, informed her days later that he and others had watched a video of the encounter. However, she claims the R&B singer wouldn’t speak out, as many others wouldn’t, out of fear of retaliation from Combs. There was a police report filed, but without evidence, she was left with few options. The woman says the assault left her struggling with mental health, career progression, and humiliation. Additionally, she says she was eventually admitted to a hospital for severe depression and suicidal ideation, ultimately dropping out of college. It doesn’t appear the amount she’s seeking in damages has been disclosed at this time.

In a separate suit filed by Jane Doe, Combs is accused of partnering with singer/songwriter Aaron Hall in raping two women. According to her complaint, she and a friend met the musicians at an event hosted by MCA Records back in 1990 or 1991. She claims Combs continuously offered her alcohol throughout the evening before inviting her back to Hall’s apartment for an afterparty where he “coerced” her into having sex. After he was finished, Jane Doe says she was left feeling “shocked and traumatized”. While getting dressed, she claims Hall barged into the room, pinned her down, and forced her to have sex with him. She later told her friend what happened and found out that the same incident, beginning with Hall and ending with Combs, had allegedly happened to her as well.

Jane Doe says days later, Combs came to the place where she and her friend were staying and choked her in a fit of rage until she nearly passed out. Apparently, he didn’t want the two sharing what had happened, especially with the person he was seeing at the time. The woman named Combs, Hall, MCA Music Entertainment, and Geffen Records in the suit, and says she had to get to medical treatment

“to heal from the trauma visited upon her by Combs and Hall.”

Combs‘ lawyer has reportedly not responded to Jane Doe’s suit at this time, but called Dickerson-Neals‘ suit “purely a money grab”. He reportedly told news outlets:

“This is last-minute lawsuit is an example of how a well-intentioned law can be turned on its head. Mr. Combs never assaulted her.”

It doesn’t appear Hall’s reps have responded at this time.
