Los Angeles — A lawsuit naming Sean “Diddy” Combs as a co-defendant claims that his son Christian “King” Combs sexually abused a lady working on a boat hired by his father.

According to the lawsuit filed on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sean Combs engineered the circumstances that led to the assault and then paid to cover it up. It’s the latest in a slew of lawsuits alleging the producer and music tycoon of sexual assault, and it comes amid a federal sex trafficking investigation that prompted Homeland Security investigators to raid his Los Angeles and Miami properties last week.

Lawsuit Naming Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs As Co-Defendant Alleges His Son Sexually Assaulted Woman On Yacht

Grace O’Marcaigh, a crew member and bartender on the yacht, claims that in late December 2022, Christian Combs persuaded her to consume tequila that she suspects was laced with other substances. According to the lawsuit, he touched her breasts and genitals and tried to force her to have oral sex.

The Associated Press normally does not identify persons who claim to have been sexually abused unless they come out publicly, as O’Marcaigh has. She also agreed to be named through her solicitors.

Aaron Dyer, an attorney for Sean and Christian Combs, described the complaint as “lewd and meritless.”

“We will be filing a motion to dismiss this outrageous claim,” Dyer stated.

Dyer described the inquiry that resulted in last week’s raids as “nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits.”

Sean Combs, who chartered the yacht for the holidays in 2022, “had full control of the staff and premises” and established an environment in which her assault was not only accepted but encouraged.

O’Marcaigh, who was 25 at the time, claimed that when Christian Combs, then 24, arrived late one night, he appeared intoxicated and began paying her unwanted attention.

She stated that the two were in a music studio on board the ship, where producer Rodney Jones, who filed his lawsuit in February, was instructed to be available around the clock for Sean Combs to work on his upcoming album.

In the lawsuit, O’Marcaigh claimed that Christian Combs insisted on her drinking tequila shots, and she did so out of responsibility.

According to the lawsuit, he became increasingly aggressive with her, violently seizing her arm as she attempted to leave the situation and then touching her. The suit claims that the beverages caused everything to blur unnaturally quickly.

Microphones in the studio, where Jones was instructed to record everything, captured their conversation, and the lawsuit contains a transcript in which O’Marcaigh demands that Christian Combs cease molesting her.

The suit claims that he continued the assault in the ship’s movie theater, which was utilized as a spare sleeping area and where she was looking for a place to stay the night because all of the rooms were booked before another crew member intervened, and he stopped.

O’Marcaigh informed the yacht’s captain about the assault the next morning, but she claims that when Combs handed him a substantial sum of money the same day, the captain neglected to investigate or take any action.

According to the lawsuit, O’Marcaigh was dismissed in retribution and has since been unable to find work in the music sector, where she had hoped to advance her career. According to the report, she has been experiencing significant mental anguish since 2022.

The lawsuit demands damages that will be established at trial.

Christian Combs is also a musical artist, and his song “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” featuring Kodak Black topped Billboard’s Mainstream R&B Hip-Hop charts in 2022. He was in his father’s Los Angeles house during last week’s searches, and he and his brother were handcuffed but not jailed.

Tyrone Blackburn, the same attorney who represents O’Marcaigh, filed a federal case against producer Jones in February, alleging that Sean Combs pushed him into soliciting prostitutes and pressuring him to have sex with them.

Dyer stated that the latest lawsuit is “filled with the same kind of manufactured lies and irrelevant facts we’ve come to expect from Blackburn.”

He noted that U.S. District Judge Denise L. Cote criticized Blackburn in a separate lawsuit on Wednesday and referred him to a disciplinary committee for a “pattern of behavior” in which he “improperly files cases in federal court to garner media attention, embarrass defendants with salacious allegations, and pressure defendants to settle quickly.”

Blackburn answered via email that “a referral is not a sanction” and that Combs’ lawyer’s comment was an attempt to “deflect and distract.”

“Christian Combs sexually assaulted Ms. O’Marcaigh, and we have it on tape,” Blackburn told reporters.

The R&B singer Cassie, his former protege and lover, filed a lawsuit in November alleging years of sexual abuse, including rape, which has since brought the music and business magnate into the public eye. It was settled the next day.

Combs and his counsel have denied all of the lawsuits’ claims.

Combs, a three-time Grammy winner and the founder of Bad Boy Records, has been one of hip-hop’s most prominent producers and executives for the last three decades. He grew his hip-hop empire into a larger economic empire that included private-label spirits, clothing, and a television network.

BRUSSELS — Charlie Colin, the bassist and founding member of the band Train, best known for their early-aughts songs “Drops of Jupiter” and “Meet Virginia,” has passed away. He was 58.

Colin’s sister, Carolyn Stephens, confirmed her brother’s death to The Associated Press on Wednesday. He died after slipping and falling in the bathtub while housesitting for a friend in Brussels, according to celebrity website TMZ.com.

Charlie Colin, Founding Member Of The Band Train, Dies At 58 After Slipping In Shower

Colin grew up in Southern California and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. After college, he joined the band Apostles, which included guitarist Jimmy Stafford and singer Rob Hotchkiss. After the band broke up, Colin spent a year writing jingles in Singapore.

Colin, Hotchkiss, and Stafford eventually migrated to San Francisco, where they created Train in the early 1990s alongside singer Pat Monahan. According to an interview with Colin and Hotchkiss in Berklee’s alumni magazine, Colin rounded out the quartet with drummer Scott Underwood.

Colin was a founding member of the pop-rock band, appearing on the band’s first three albums: 1998’s self-titled album, 2001’s “Drops of Jupiter,” and 2003’s “My Private Nation.” The latter two albums peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 charts.

“Meet Virginia,” from Train’s debut album, peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, but the band’s sophomore album cemented their fame.

The eight-time platinum title tune “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” featured Rolling Stones session pianist Chuck Leavell and Leonard Cohen’s string orchestrator Paul Buckmaster. It was written after Monahan’s mother’s death. It peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard list and won two Grammys, including Best Rock Song.

Colin departed Train in 2003 due to substance misuse.

“Charlie is one incredible bass player, but he was in a lot of pain, and the way he was dealing with it was very painful for everyone else around him,” Monahan stated to NBC San Diego.

In 2015, he rejoined Hotchkiss to form the new band Painbirds alongside Tom Luce. In 2017, he established the Side Deal, which included Sugar Ray’s Stan Frazier and the PawnShop Kings’ Joel and Scott Owen.

Train posted an homage to Colin on their social media platforms on Wednesday.

“When I met Charlie Colin (front left), I fell in love with him. He was the sweetest and most attractive man. “Let’s form a band; it’s the only reasonable thing to do,” it reads.

“His distinct bass playing and wonderful guitar work helped get people to notice us in San Francisco and abroad. I’ll always have a soft spot for him in my heart. I always attempted to bring him closer, but he had his vision. You are a legend, Charlie. “Go charm the pants off those angels,” the unsigned post added.

Colin documented his stay in Brussels before his death, declaring it “officially my favorite city” in a March Instagram post.

Colin also served as the music director for the Newport Beach Film Festival.

“Charlie was a special part of the Newport Beach Film Festival family,” said Todd Quartararo, the festival’s co-founder. “His heart, compassion and creativity will surely be missed.”

He is survived by his parents, sister, and niece

Matthew Perry’s Death Under Investigation In Connection With Ketamine Level Found In Actor’s Blood

Friends Star Matthew Perry, 54 Found Dead at His LA Home

Los Angeles  — Authorities have begun an investigation into how Matthew Perry obtained the ketamine that killed him, police said Tuesday.

Los Angeles police are collaborating with the US Narcotic Enforcement Administration and the US Postal Inspection Service to investigate why the 54-year-old “Friends” star had so much of the narcotic in his system, LAPD Capt. Scot Williams said in an email.

Matthew Perry’s Death Under Investigation In Connection With Ketamine Level Found In Actor’s Blood

On Oct. 28, an assistant discovered Perry, 54, face down in his hot tub, and paramedics arrived and confirmed him dead. His autopsy, which was disclosed in December, revealed that the level of ketamine in his blood was within the range used for general anesthesia during surgery. The primary cause of death was categorized as an accident, with no foul play suspected, according to the report.

The coroner cited drowning and other medical conditions as contributory reasons.

TMZ initially revealed the probe.

People close to the star informed coroner’s investigators that he was receiving ketamine infusion therapy. The decades-old surgical medication has experienced a significant increase in use in recent years to treat depression, anxiety, and pain.

However, the medical examiner stated that Perry’s most recent treatment, which occurred one and a half weeks prior, could not account for the ketamine levels in his blood. The medication is normally metabolized within hours. According to the medical examiner’s report, Perry was being treated by at least two doctors: a psychiatrist and an anesthesiologist who also functioned as his primary care physician. No illegal drugs or paraphernalia were discovered at his home.

Perry struggled with addiction for years, beginning with his time on “Friends,” where he starred as Chandler Bing alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer for ten seasons from 1994 to 2004.

In other cases, celebrity deaths caused by drugs prompted authorities to punish those who gave them.

After rapper Mac Miller died from an overdose of cocaine, alcohol, and fentanyl-laced counterfeit oxycodone, two of the guys who gave him the fentanyl were convicted of trafficking it. One was sentenced to more than 17 years in federal prison, while the other received 10 years.

Two doctors and a manager of model and reality TV star Anna Nicole Smith were charged with scheming to obtain her prescription medicines before her 2007 death but not with causing her deadly overdose. All accusations against one doctor were subsequently dismissedexcept one misdemeanor fraud charge.

After Michael Jackson died in 2009 from a deadly dose of propofol, a medicine designed for use only during surgery and other medical operations, not for the insomnia the singer wanted, his doctor, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011. Murray has maintained his innocence.

According to the lawsuit, when McKinney arrived, Diddy was drinking and smoking joints with several other males. According to the lawsuit, she smoked some marijuana and “later came to understand” that it was tainted with a narcotic or intoxicating drug. She felt as if she were floating.

Diddy’s reps did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.

The Associated Press normally does not identify persons who claim to have been sexually abused unless they come forward publicly, as McKinney has.

The complaint was filed days after CNN published security footage showing Combs assaulting singer Cassie in a Los Angeles hotel corridor in 2016. On Sunday, Diddy published a video admitting to attacking Cassie in a hotel hallway, stating he was “truly sorry” and his actions were “inexcusable.”

Diddy is not likely to face criminal charges for the incident due to the statute of limitations.

Cassie filed a complaint in November alleging beatings and abuse, which was resolved a day later. However, it sparked increased scrutiny of Diddy, with numerous further lawsuits filed in the following months, as well as a federal criminal sex-trafficking probe that prompted investigators to raid Combs’ residences in Los Angeles and Miami.

The claim was filed on Tuesday under a New York City law that allows accusers to initiate civil litigation within a specific time frame, even if the alleged crimes occurred many years ago.
