Music Producer Sues Sean Combs Alleging Sexual Harassment, Drug Use, and Unpaid Work

Music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones has filed a bombshell lawsuit against hip-hop mogul Sean Combs, accusing him of sexual harassment, drug use, and non-payment for his work on the Grammy-nominated album, The Love Album: Off the Grid. The 70-page lawsuit, filed in the Southern District of New York, also names Combs’ chief of staff Kristina Khorram, his son Justin Combs, and other entities such as Motown Records and Universal Music Group.

Jones is the first man to publicly accuse Combs of sexual harassment and assault. In his lawsuit, Jones alleges that Combs repeatedly groped him without consent, made secret recordings in his homes, and used guns as intimidation tactics. Furthermore, Jones claims that Combs attempted to “groom him into accepting a homosexual relationship” by showing explicit videos and claiming it was a common practice in the music industry.

This lawsuit follows five other legal actions against Combs, including one from singer Cassie, who accused him of sex trafficking and physical assault during their long-term relationship. Combs denied any wrongdoing, and the parties reached a private settlement within 24 hours.

Jones, a musical prodigy who has worked with renowned gospel musicians, states that he produced nine songs for Combs’ album after being hired in August 2022. However, he alleges that he was not compensated for his time, despite living with Combs for months at a time in various locations across New York, California, and Florida.

According to Jones, Combs would frequently grope him, shower in front of him, and walk around his house naked. Jones claims to have brought his concerns about Combs’ advances to Khorram, who dismissed them by saying, “you know, Sean will be Sean.” Jones also alleges that Combs forced him to recruit sex workers and pushed him to use illegal substances.

In one disturbing incident described in the lawsuit, Jones claims that Combs drugged him to the point of waking up naked and disoriented in bed with two sex workers and Combs himself. The suit further alleges that Combs used various tactics, including promises of Grammy awards and $250,000, to maintain control over Jones. Additionally, Jones claims that Combs threatened physical harm and even mentioned harming Jones’ mother.

Jones asserts that he has physical evidence, including video footage, to support his allegations. In February, he posted a video showing Combs laughing while an associate read out texts that insulted Jones.

A representative for Combs called Jones a “liar” and accused him of seeking an undeserved payday. Combs has consistently denied any wrongdoing in all the cases against him. However, he stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt, his media company, and faced a significant exodus of companies from his e-commerce platform. Combs also did not attend the Grammy awards in February.
