Adria English is suing Diddy for allegedly forcing her to have sex with partygoers

Sean “Diddy” Combs allegedly forced a former porn star to have sex with guests at his famous parties in the Hamptons, according to the latest lawsuit filed against the embattled music mogul.

Former adult film star Adria English accused the rapper in the lawsuit of “grooming” her to be a sex trafficking victim while she worked as a “go-go dancer” at his annual white party nearly two decades ago.

And when she finally escaped Combs’ clutches in 2009, she alleged he destroyed her career in the entertainment industry, according to the complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan.

English, whose stage name in the adult film industry was Omunique, first met Diddy in 2004 when she was with her then-boyfriend, model Anthony Gallo, who was auditioning for fashion company Sean John.

The lawsuit alleges that Gallo was guaranteed a gig by an employee of Sean John if he convinced English to work Diddy’s upcoming party in the Hamptons, the complaint states.

At the first party, English was not forced to have sex with attendees, but that changed in subsequent years, the complaint states.

At a party, she was asked to wear a black dress because she believed it signaled to others that she was a “sex worker who had been trafficked,” the lawsuit said.

One guest she was forced to sleep with was jeweler Jacob Arabov, also known as Jacob the Jeweler, the indictment said.

“At the end of the evening, Defendant Combs personally congratulated Plaintiff for following his directions with Defendant Jacob and for performing his duties well,” the complaint states.

English complied with Diddy’s demands because she feared for her safety and future career opportunities, and for Gallo’s employment with Sean John, the lawsuit alleges.

She also attended parties he held in Miami, where she says she was sexually abused by other guests at Combs’ direction as part of an “ongoing corrupt sex trafficking organization,” the lawsuit says.

While Combs offered to help English break into the music industry, he later blacklisted her and Gallo when she quit working for him in 2009 and fled to California, her legal team said.

She is seeking unspecified damages, alleging she suffered severe emotional distress, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit also names other employees and companies associated with Combs.

The “I’ll Be Missing You” singer has been facing an avalanche of lawsuits filed by several women alleging human trafficking and abuse since November of last year. R&B singer Cassie has sued him for allegedly raping and assaulting her.

The two sides quickly settled the matter, although earlier this year a video surfaced showing Combs attacking her in a hotel hallway.

Combs has strongly denied the allegations in all lawsuits.

In light of English’s lawsuit, Combs’ attorney Jonathan Davis told Fox News in a statement, “No matter how many lawsuits are filed, it will not change the fact that Mr. Combs has never sexually abused or sex trafficked anyone.

“We live in a world where anyone can file a lawsuit for any reason and without any evidence. Fortunately, there is a fair and impartial judicial process to get to the truth and Mr. Combs is confident he will overcome this and other baseless claims in court,” Davis said.

Attempts to reach Arabov, who is named as a defendant in English’s lawsuit, were unsuccessful.
