A new lawsuit has surfaced against rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, the latest in a string of serious accusations against the entertainment personality. Plaintiff April Lampros alleges she was subjected to "four terrifying sexual encounters" with Combs between the mid-1990s and early-2000s.

According to documents lodged in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Lampros first met Combs in 1994 while studying at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. The lawsuit alleges battery, assault, sexual battery, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and gender-motivated violence.

Lampros, who was an intern at Arista Records at the time, alleges in the lawsuit that the company negligently placed Combs in a position of authority. The filing states that Arista Records assumed Combs would not commit acts of sexual assault or cause injury to others.

Furthermore, the lawsuit implicates Bad Boy Records, Arista Records, and Sony Entertainment.

Secret Recording Alleged

Adding to the disturbing claims, the lawsuit alleges that around two years ago, Lampros was informed that a video depicting her and Combs engaging in sexual activities had been secretly recorded by Combs and shown to multiple people without her knowledge.

The cascade of allegations comes as the entertainment world reels from a recent revelation involving Combs. Last week, a video surfaced showing Combs attacking singer Cassie, also known as Casandra Ventura, in 2016. Ventura responded to the publicized video, stating that the domestic violence incident "broke me down to someone I never thought I would become." Combs has since issued an apology via Instagram, expressing disgust at his actions.

The legal troubles for Combs have intensified as federal authorities recently raided his residences in Los Angeles and Miami as part of a federal human trafficking investigation. This follows another lawsuit filed earlier by model Crystal McKinney, who accused Combs of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2003.

As Combs faces these serious allegations, the impact on his career and personal legacy continues to unfold, casting a shadow over his contributions to the music and entertainment industry.
