Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is being sued by a photographer who is accusing the mogul and his bodyguards of beating him down last fall.
Jabari Tilgham, 30, was one of several photographers working a BET Hip Hop Awards after party that was co-hosted by Diddy and rapper Rick Ross. Jabari claims he was singled out by Diddy’s bodyguards, four of whom are also named in the suit, and subsequently assaulted, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.
Jabari claims the attack was unprovoked. At least one bodyguard working for the venue, Club Mansion, supports Jabari’s claim and has signed an affidavit.
At this time, it’s unclear whether Jabari was seriously injured or how much money he’s suing for.
Jabari’s isn’t the first lawsuit filed concerning the Bad Boy founder. Earlier this year, a woman sued him for $1 trillion, blaming him for the World Trade Center disaster of 9/11.
