Around Thanksgiving 2023, we told you about how Diddy found himself to be at the center of yet another sexual assault lawsuit.

This particular one stemmed from a woman named Liza Gardner who alleged that the hip-hop mogul and Guy singer Aaron Hall sexually assaulted her and a friend at Hall’s apartment. Allegedly it happened after an MCA-hosted event at the record label’s offices back in 1990 or 1991, according to NBC News. The suit was filed just one day before the expiration of the New York Adult Survivors Act.

In a statement following the news of the suit at the time, lawyers for Diddy said:

“The claims involving alleged misconduct against Mr. Combs from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute are all completely denied and rejected by him. He recognizes this as a money grab. Because of Mr. Combs’ fame and success, he is an easy target for accusers who will falsify the truth, without conscience or consequence, for financial benefit. The New York Legislature surely did not intend or expect the Adult Survivors Act to be exploited for improper purposes. The public should be skeptical and not rush to accept these unsubstantiated allegations.”

Now on Thursday, it appears Gardner is attempting to move the suit to take place in New Jersey instead of New York citing new evidence as the impetus.

Per the court documents as obtained by AllHipHop:

“Plaintiff and this writer have received information from several witnesses: a former employee of UMG subsidiary Uptown Records and a Bad Boy Records executive. This new information adds context to the Plaintiff’s claims and clarifies the timeline. The first and second witnesses have photos of Plaintiff and Defendant Aaron Hall from the day of the assault, which was taken a few hours before he raped Plaintiff.

The first and second witnesses also confirmed that the sixteen-year-old plaintiff was assaulted at the MCA event in New York City, went to dinner in New York City, and then was taken to New Jersey, where the rape occurred. The former employee confirmed that Aaron Hall was an employee of MCA at the time of the rape.”

This suit is just one of four that still remain in the Bad Boy producer’s purview. The rest include a sexual assault suit filed by producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jenkins, a sexual assault lawsuit filed by Joi Dickerson-Neal, and a gang rape lawsuit filed by a Jane Doe.
