Sean “Diddy” Combs finds himself embroiled in another sex trafficking lawsuit, his tenth to date. This time, the allegations come from former adult film star Adria English.

According to the latest lawsuit, English accuses Diddy of grooming her for sex trafficking while she was employed by him.

The Allegations

English claims that she was subjected to calculated grooming schemes where Diddy hired her to work at his famed Hamptons Labor Day “white parties” as a go-go dancer.

She alleges that during her nearly two-decade-long tenure at these annual parties, she was “required” to consume narcotics provided at the events. English asserts that Diddy often laced the liquor with ecstasy and gave her explicit instructions to drink from specific bottles.

According to the lawsuit, English was trafficked from 2004 to 2009 by Diddy, Tamika Thomas, and Jacob Arabov, also known as “Jacob the Jeweler” of Jacob & Co. “Despite being forced to drink copious amounts of alcohol and consume illicit narcotics, the encounters Plaintiff was forced to endure were so excruciating that they still haunt her to this day,” reads the legal document.

Initially, English believed the 2004 “White Party” to be a legitimate employment opportunity with no sinister intentions. However, around the third party, she alleges that Diddy “demanded” she start engaging in sexual activities with guests, leveraging her past in adult entertainment to coerce her into sex work. She further claims that the increased demand for drug and alcohol consumption rendered her unable to recall details from subsequent Miami “White Parties.”

Federal Investigation

According to NBC News, Combs is currently the subject of an ongoing federal criminal investigation in New York. A grand jury in the Southern District of New York is hearing evidence as part of the probe. While no specific details have emerged, sources confirm that Combs and his attorneys were formally notified of the grand jury proceedings last week.

“This is the next step in the process for Mr. Combs as the investigation continues,” a law enforcement official stated. The official added that Combs has not received a target letter, indicating prosecutors are likely to seek an indictment.

Law enforcement officials raided Combs' residences in Los Angeles and Miami three months ago. These recent developments follow a series of sexual assault allegations against Combs over the past seven months.

The allegations culminated in the release of a video in May, obtained by CNN, showing Combs beating his then-girlfriend, Cassandra “Cassie” Ventura, at a Los Angeles hotel in 2016. Combs settled a federal lawsuit filed by Ventura last November, just one day after it was filed.
