In the most recent suit, the unidentified woman says she was with friends at a lounge in the Detroit area when she met Harve Pierre, Bad Boy’s former president, who is also named as a defendant in the case and is accused of taking part in raping the woman. The woman, according to the court papers, said Mr. Pierre told her that Mr. Combs “would love to meet” her and then, in a bathroom at the lounge, Mr. Pierre “demanded” oral sex, before asking her to accompany him on a private flight to New York City.
While at the recording studio, according to the suit, the woman met Mr. Combs and took a photo sitting on his lap, which was included in the complaint with her face obscured. “Ms. Doe became more and more inebriated,” the complaint reads, “eventually to the point that she could not possibly have consented to having sex with anyone, much less someone twice her age.”
Eventually, the lawsuit says, Mr. Combs directed her into the bathroom, where he raped her, and then sat in a chair outside the bathroom watching as an unnamed man raped her. The suit says Mr. Pierre assaulted her last.
Mr. Pierre could not be reached for comment. He was named in an earlier case, filed last month, that accused him of grooming and sexually assaulting an assistant at Bad Boy.
A spokesperson for Bad Boy, which was also named as a defendant in that case against Mr. Pierre, has said the company was “investigating the allegations.”
The new suit says it is being filed under New York City’s Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Act, which, for a limited period of time, allows accusers to file civil complaints involving sexual assault claims after the statute of limitations has run out. Mr. Wigdor said that the suit was filed in federal court because the plaintiff and the defendant live outside of New York.
In the latest suit, the woman said that she has suffered significant emotional distress in the two decades since the encounter and that reading about the cases filed by Ms. Ventura and the two other plaintiffs had led her to file her own.
