Cuba Gooding Jr added to Diddy Lawsuit

( – Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. has been added to the lawsuit against Sean “P Diddy” Combs by Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones Jr. Jones alleged that Gooding touched and groped his legs, upper inner thighs, the small of his back, and his shoulders. The complaint included a photograph of the men, showing Gooding with his arm around Jones while they were listening to music. Jones is sporting a huge grin in the image.

Combs is alleged to have encouraged the interaction and Jones argues Combs failed to prevent the alleged touching, which he qualifies as a sexual assault. Jones had previously completed work with Combs on “The Love Album: Off the Grid,” which was released in September last year.

Jones alleges that he was forced to procure prostitutes for Combs who additionally pressured Jones into engaging in adult acts. He has also alleged that Combs touched his anus multiple times, as well as engaged in other inappropriate touching.

Gooding was added to the suit just hours after the feds raided Combs’ two residences in Miami and Los Angeles. Combs was traveling at the time, but the feds handcuffed and detained his two adult sons. They were later released without charges. Combs’ current whereabouts are unknown, but it is not believed he is evading the authorities.

Former girlfriends and performance artist Cassie Ventura also filed a lawsuit in November against Combs alleging a decade of sexual abuse. Combs denied her allegations and the suit was settled with the terms undisclosed.

Combs is also battling allegations he sexually assaulted an unnamed woman when she was 17 with two friends. Another accuser, Joi Dickerson-Neal, claimed that Combs put something into her drink in 1991 and assaulted her thereafter while she was a college student in Syracuse. She claimed that the attack was recorded and shared privately among his friends.

Gooding previously settled a civil case for an alleged 2013 rape in June 2023 moments before the trial was to begin. The terms in that settlement were also undisclosed, but she was seeking a judgment of $6 million in damages per court filings.
