Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is facing a new lawsuit and a criminal investigation over alleged sexual assault and trafficking, according to a new report.

The latest civil case, filed by former porn actress Adria English, accuses him of coercing her into sexual acts at parties with guests as well as making her consume alcohol and ecstasy.

English’s lawsuit alleges that “Combs groomed Plaintiff into sex trafficking over time”, in events between 2004 and 2009.

In a statement to TMZ, Combs's lawyer said: “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.”

The Standard has contacted Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ rep for comment.

In a complaint, spanning 114 pages, English claims Combs forced her to engage in sexual activities with guests at events in New York and Florida after she was initially hired for a “white party” in 2004, threatening to damage her career if she refused.

The lawsuit also details over 30 allegations, including the involvement of other individuals in facilitating the alleged sex trafficking.

Several allegations of sexual assault have been leveled against Combs, starting in November when his ex-girlfriend, R&B singer Cassie, accused him of rape and physical abuse.

The lawsuit was settled promptly, but Combs faced scrutiny after footage surfaced in May showing him physically assaulting Cassie in 2016.

Joi Dickerson-Neal, Rodney Jones Jr., April Lampros, and Crystal McKinney have individually filed lawsuits alleging sexual assault against the music mogul.

Additionally, two unnamed women have also made similar claims. Combs has denied all allegations.

In March, Homeland Security agents raided Diddy's residences in Los Angeles and Miami as part of their investigation into the allegations against him.
