AceShowbiz - Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is learning who his truly friends are amid his current legal issue. Some of his famous pals are seemingly distancing themselves from the hip-hop mogul after he was slapped with a lawsuit by Cassie.
Janet Jackson and Naomi Campbell were among those who made it known how they position themselves in the situation. Just days after partying with the rapper, the singer and the model have removed pictures from the bash that featured Diddy.
On Thursday, November 9, the "Together Again" hitmaker and the British beauty joined the celebration for Diddy's 54th birthday at Lavo in London. Both ladies were pictured with the birthday boy at the time and posted the images on their respective Instagram page, but they have now removed their posts.
Janet and Naomi have neither given an explanation to the social media move nor they have spoken up on Cassie's allegations against Diddy, but their decisions came in the wake of the lawsuit.
Cassie filed the explosive lawsuit on Thursday, November 16 in the Federal District Court in Manhattan. She accused the Bad Boy Records founder of "rape, and of repeated physical abuse over about a decade."
Cassie alleged that Diddy kept providing her with drugs until she couldn't refuse them. She claimed she suffered memory loss, which might have been the result of extensive drug use or due to head injuries caused by Diddy, who allegedly beat her up "multiple times each year."
The 37-year-old additionally said that Diddy forced her to perform sexual acts with sex workers at hotels around the country as she was "given ecstasy, cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, and alcohol in excessive amounts." She said the hip-hop mogul filmed the occasions and sometimes he physically assaulted her.
Diddy has denied the allegations. His attorney Ben Brafman said in a statement, "Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations." Ben added, "For the past 6 months, Mr. Combs, has been subjected to Ms. Ventura's persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail."
"Despite withdrawing her initial threat, Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies," the lawyer continued, adding that the lawsuit aims "to tarnish Mr. Combs' reputation and seeking a pay day."
